JBT Avure’s PRoCARE: maximizing efficiency by minimizing downtime

procare_engineer_small.jpg

Being able to maximize efficiency is essential for any company using High Pressure Processing (HPP) from JBT Avure to increase shelf life and ensure food safety, which is why downtime must be kept to a minimum. This is where a PRoCARE program from JBT Avure comes into play. 

With PRoCARE, equipment is inspected and maintained per the manufacturing standards to optimize performance and maintenance technicians receive on-going training.  Maintenance employee turnover is an issue customers are faced with around the globe.  With the training offered as part of PRoCARE, employees will be kept current with the required maintenance practices.

Preventative maintenance
The System Uptime Review Evaluation (SURE) from JBT Avure is one way of guarding against unnecessary HPP downtime and is available to Avure customers – free for the first year – as part of JBT’s PRoCARE preventative maintenance program.

As Tim Boyle, JBT Avure’s Director of Customer Care for HPP, explains, SURE focuses on carrying out a full visual inspection of machinery, measuring pre-stress levels and making sure all components are working at maximum efficiency. Another key element to the SURE inspection is ensuring all aspects of the HPP safety systems are working properly and customer personnel are following the correct safety protocols.     

“Safety is one of our main concerns in everything we do.  When you are running machines at 87,000 psi, we need to be sure the safety systems continue to perform as they were designed”, says Boyle. “HPP is a growing technology in the food industry and we want to ensure that it maintains its reputation for safety in terms of the food our customer’s process as well was with the operation of our equipment” he emphasizes.

Identifying problems
SURE allows JBT technicians to identify areas where maintenance is not being performed properly, even finding instances where customers are prematurely discarding thousands of dollars of parts which could easily be re-lapped and reused. “With the maintenance employee turnover issues our customers face, we often find that new employees don’t fully understand the maintenance requirements and how to perform the work.  This level of uncertainty can lead to less efficient work time and more machine downtime,” explains Boyle.

“Through the PRoCARE program’s combination of the SURE inspection and immediate training, we can identify areas of improvement and spend time training both new and existing employees.  This real time feedback is extremely effective in showing not just what needs to be done on the machine, but why it is important.”

The PRoCARE package of the SURE inspection and three days’ maintenance training is now included free for the first year when purchasing a new Avure HPP machine. For those customers that would like further support, JBT Avure can customize a PRoCARE Level 2 package to meet their specific needs. These options can be service visits from Avure technicians, custom parts kits for easy ordering, parts discounts, emergency service discounts and also the JBT iOPS (our internet of things) portal for enhanced machine reporting. “Our goal is to become an integral part of our customer’s success through exceptional customer service,” adds Boyle.

JBT will be highlighting its ability to deliver effective cooking solutions as well as upcoming innovations that will help ensure juicer and higher yielding end products at this year’s Gulfood Manufacturing 2019 trade exhibition, which takes place in Dubai’s World Trade Center from October 29-31. Cooking solutions will form just one element of a complete portfolio being presented by JBT that will also include innovative tray sealing and x-ray technologies.

Ahead of JBT’s participation at the event, Roland Collet, JBT Regional Sales Manager for the Middle East and Africa, explained that the focus would be on highlighting the breadth of JBT solutions on offer, including High Pressure Processing (HPP) from JBT Avure; a clean label pasteurization system which can deliver positive benefits for product quality and shelf-life.

The JBT booth at Gulfood Manufacturing will also feature some of the newest additions to the JBT family, including tray-sealing specialist Proseal, as well as more established solutions from JBT Schöder – a globally recognized provider of injection and marination systems. 

One area of special focus at this year’s show, however, will be JBT’s cooking solutions, according to Collet. “We are seeing more and more demand for fully cooked products, so we are developing a combined cooking solution, which will bring together contact cooking and the JBT impingement oven to get a juicier and higher yield end product,” he said.

“JBT has been in the Middle East for over 30 years now and we have more than 200 customers around the region, so this is a great opportunity for us to welcome the customers in a very easy place to reach,” Collet added.

JBT will showcase food processing solutions capable of optimizing yields and extending product shelf-life for companies in the meat, poultry and fish industries at this year’s Polagra Tech exhibition, Poland’s leading trade event for new food technologies. The show, which takes place in the city of Poznań from September 30-October 03, will also provide an ideal opportunity to consolidate contacts in what is a fast-developing market for JBT.

“Poland is a growing market for JBT,” says Piotr Jacko, JBT’s Regional Sales Manager for Central and Eastern Europe. “We are catching up with Western countries and the food processing factories have in a short time evolved to top modern facilities with the latest technologies and with brand new concepts.”

Innovation focus
With a focus on the needs of Polish food processors, JBT’s presence at Polagra will highlight four innovative technological solutions. 

DSI-800

The DSI™ Waterjet Portioning System, a solution for poultry (white and dark meat) and pork (ribs, bellies, loins) can provide significant added value for processors through its ability to both reduce labor and optimize yields giving a great return on investment and new horizons for producers, according to Jacko. The system offers high capacity portioning and trimming in a small production space by utilizing DSI Software to optimize a cut strategy for each individual piece of raw product and the unique Jet-Blocker system to provide superior quality cuts and enhanced throughput.

The Schröder MAX Massager likewise helps reduce process time for boneless, whole muscle products, like pork, ham and chicken fillets, thanks to its unique massaging technology and much higher capacity than traditional tumblers.

JBT’s XVision CE Pack x-ray inspection system – recently made available in European markets – offers protection for customer brands by ensuring excellent detection performance in identifying foreign objects in food products. The innovative modular design reduces the cost of ownership and allows for unsurpassed uptime. “This plug-and-plug modular design makes it very simple from a maintenance point-of-view,” says Jacko.

JBT will also use its presence at Polagra to highlight JBT Avure High Pressure Processing (HPP) technology, a cold pasteurization system which both extends shelf-life and helps eliminate harmful bacteria, such as salmonella and listeria.

JBT will be exhibiting at Polagra Tech 2019 at the World Trade Center Poznań from September 30-October 03.

The growing interest in the Ukrainian consumer market in convenience foods and ready-to-eat meal solutions is opening up a new customer base in one of Europe’s largest countries for JBT’s innovative food processing solutions. The opportunity to showcase some of these solutions is the focus for JBT at this week’s InProdMash trade exhibition, which is taking place in Kiev from September 10-12.

As part of its presence at the largest food processing trade show in Ukraine, JBT is highlighting solutions that range from Frigoscandia freezing and chilling equipment through to cooking machinery that brings efficiency and reliability to food processing.

Victoria Ortillez, JBT’s Area Sales Manager for Ukraine, explains, “There are more than 40 million people in Ukraine and all of these people need to eat something, but this market has still to develop when it comes to cooking solutions. For example, it is still at the very beginning of development when it comes to ready meals, so we would like to be there to support the growth of this new industry in Ukraine.”

“During the Soviet era, the country was very closed-off, but as people travel more, they are coming into contact with different products – such as ready meals and convenience foods – and asking for those kinds of products here in Ukraine,” she adds.
