Technical Information Filling of chocolates, browning of ready meals or sterilisation of bread - infrared heat is an innovative alternative to many processes in food production. Infrared emitters transmit heat without contact and only as long as necessary. In this way, food is brought to the required temperature without being overheated. For the food sector, infrared modules aremanufactured in stainless steel and fitted with a wire mesh to afford mechanical protection. An additional foil frame can, if requested, protect the food from any falling particles. Infrared emitters from Heraeus are...

A specially-built oven system, incorporating the latest carbon infrared technology, is helping Geest to achieve perfect browning of the toppings for a range of oven-ready meals produced at its Milton Keynes food factory. When Geest decided to install a new production line to produce a new range of products at Milton Keynes, it was agreed that this would be designed to include the most up-to-date food production technology. An essential part of the mass production of some ready meals is the browning of the topping, as this is very important for final presentation. Historically, browning has...

Carbon infrared heating systems are helping Magna Speciality Confectioners to achieve better control over the quality of their filled chocolate products, as well as saving energy and space when compared with the previous chocolate heating system. Magna Speciality Confectioners make a wide range of chocolates, under contract, for most of the well-known chocolate manufacturers. They have particular expertise in filled products, such as filled chocolate bars and filled chocolate eggs, where the application of heat is an important process step. In the manufacture of chocolate filled eggs,...

The Britvic factory in Great Britain handles a range of fruit juices. The juices are pasteurised prior to filling to temperatures in the region of 80 °C; glass bottles arrive on the line at ambient temperatures. When filling glass bottles, there is a significant danger of sufficient thermal shock to cause cracking/bottle failure if the temperature difference between fluid and glass is greater than around 42 °C. Historically to ensure that the bottle/juice temperature difference was maintained below this critical level, the bottles to be filled would be first subjected to a hot rinse and...

An infrared, cheese grilling and browning oven from Heraeus Noblelight has helped Food Point of Dubai to solve an in-flight house-keeping problem as airlines try to meet the passenger demand for pizza slice snacks. By pre-grilling and browning prepared slices in Food Point's food production facility, the packaged slices can now be baked on board the aircraft in the minimum of time without burning the bread base. A light crisp texture is achieved in only 15 minutes of the dedicated aircraft ovens, with the cheese topping already having a baked, brown appearance prior to cooking. Food Point...
