FAQ

More
  • Q1. What is a Retort?

    Sometimes also called an Autoclave or Sterilizer, a Retort is a pressure vessel used in the food manufacturing industry to commercially sterilize food after it has been loaded into container and the container has been hermetically sealed. 

    More on commercial sterilization, please contact with our sales consultant.

  • Q2. What kind of batch retorts are available?

    Batch retorts are available in several configurations.  They can be static or agitating style machines. Innovaster custom designs and manufactures solutions for all types retort processing systems starting with your container.

    Contact with our sales consultant to discover more about Innovaster Retorts system.

  • Q3. Why is overpressure applied in batch retorts process?

    Overpressure is important in the cooling phases of a retort process because as cooling water is introduced into the retort it collapses the steam injected in the heating step.  Without sufficient introduction of air overpressure during cooling, the pressure in the retort can suddenly drop due to steam collapse thus creating a vacuum situation in the retort.  If this happens the pressure differential between the outside environment and the temperature/pressure environment inside the container becomes too great thus causing the container to burst (otherwise known as “buckling”).  

    In order to meet our expert, simply e-mail to us on info@innovaster-tech.com

  • Q4. So which retort is best suited for what packaging?

    Retorts are available as static systems and as rotary(agitating) systems; the holding capacity (expressed in number of baskets per retort) varies as does the diameter of the vessels; the heating process is either steam/air, superheated water or full-water (submerged) processing, depending on the manufacturer and/or requested application. 

    Work with our engineer to design the right solution for your line.


  • Q5. Which process is best application for my container?

    Let's say there is no best retort sterilization process. That's right. 

    Retorts use steam-based processes. There are 4 steam-based processes that are used in sterilizing food. Steam can be the direct heating media or the indirect heating media (steam-heated water used in a process). 

    Saturated Steam – direct steam heating

    Water Immersion (Rotary and Static) – indirect steam heating

    Water Spray (Rotary and Static)  – indirect steam heating

    Steam-Air (Static) – direct steam heating

    Each of the processes have pluses and minuses, for information on a detailed step description, please connect with Innovaster sales consultant to design the right solution for your container.
