JBT to showcase production and sustainability innovations at CFIA 2020

Beef Halopack - Proseal

Update: CFIA has been postponed and will now take place from May 26-28, 2020.

JBT will be highlighting the ability of the Frigoscandia FLoFREEZE and the Sequential Defrost option to extend production hours and improve hygiene, as well as the multiple sustainable packaging options available from one of the newest members of the JBT family, Proseal, at CFIA 2020, which takes place from May 26-28 in Rennes, France.

A long-established trade event, which this year celebrates its 24th edition, CFIA attracts visitors from across the French region of Brittany – the number one agro-food region in Europe – and beyond. JBT, in its 16th consecutive appearance as an exhibitor at the show, will focus its participation on solutions and technologies that can deliver real added value to customers.

Pioneering technology
One of JBT’s key technologies being highlighted at CFIA will be the Frigoscandia FLoFREEZE® IQF freezer, a pioneering technology in the field of individual freezing for vegetables, soft fruits, fish and other high-value IQF products, which remains at the forefront of the industry, thanks to its versatility and ability to deliver true fluidization.

JBT´s innovative Sequential Defrost technology ensures that optimal production capacities of up to 18 tons per hour can be achieved on the company’s Frigoscandia FLoFREEZE M-series, with the ability to easily modify the airflow for different product types and sizes. Crucially, the system can run for a minimum of six days at full capacity before defrosting is required, enabling customers to make substantial efficiencies in energy and running costs. 

“It’s a huge work to defrost a freezer, so you want to push that work back as long as possible,” says Stefan Paulsson, JBT’s Director of Value Stream & Global Product Line for Frigoscandia. “Every defrost costs time, water and heat, plus you can’t produce while you are carrying out the defrost, so a longer operating time means you can run longer and improve efficiency.”

Sustainable packaging
Proseal will also form a key part of the JBT presence at CFIA, with the UK-based company set to showcase its advanced tray sealing solutions that satisfy the needs of a wide variety of products and applications including the increased focus on sustainable packaging.

The tray sealing specialist’s ability has the ability to ready a wide range of tray formats for retail shelves, at fast speeds and in line with individual customer requirements. Models range from the semi-automatic Proseal GTR, ideal for smaller scale enterprises and new product development, to the high-speed, fully automatic Proseal GT6e with a maximum speed of 96 Vacuum-Gas packs per minute or 160 Atmospheric Seal packs per minute on an 8-impression tool.

The increasing focus on more sustainable packaging is fuelling growing demand from both retailers and consumers for more environmentally friendly solutions, and this has led many food producers to explore alternative packaging materials. Proseal’s entire range of tray sealing machines is readily equipped to handle this widening range such as board and pulp, enabling manufacturers to adopt new pack formats without additional and costly investment.

JBT will be exhibiting at Hall 7, Stand B7 at CFIA 2020, which takes place from May 26-28, 2020 at Parc Expo, Rennes Airport, Rennes, France.

JBT brings innovate solutions for protein industry to IPPE 2020

Freezing-Pizza

JBT is bringing innovations to improve efficiency, hygiene and product consistency, as well as new systems developed to improve customers’ eco credentials and save on unnecessary labor costs at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) 2020, which is taking place at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Georgia until January 30.

Improvements to existing solutions and brand new innovations are on display as part of the JBT presence, with the focus on helping customers overcome typical difficulties faced during the production process, whether that be in retaining properly trained maintenance staff or in meeting retail industry demands for more environmentally-friendly packaging.

Improved systems
One of JBT’s longest-established businesses, Northfield, which has more than 1,000 freezers installed across North America, is showcasing recent R&D achievements at the JBT booth, with a big emphasis on hygienic improvements and ease of maintenance.

“There is a high degree of turnover of the maintenance teams within the food processing industry, which can be very frustrating for companies as machinery and equipment needs to be kept in good condition,” says Sara Porosky, JBT’s Division Product Manager for Freezers.

“We have done a lot of development work on the freezers in terms of upgrading them with new hygienic features, while the inside of the freezer will be completely redesigned.”

Another well-established JBT brand is DSI, which this year is bringing the JBT X-ray Guided Waterjet Portioning System to IPPE. The solution brings together a dual-lane, industry leading DSI 800 S Series waterjet system with JBT XVision’s new-generation Flexscan inspection system. The combined solution, which is focused on tougher pork applications such as rib racks, gives customers the ability to identify bones, fat and lean areas and make a cut informed by the X-ray, explains Jon Hocker, JBT’s Director of DSI and Global Product R&D. 

“This is a world’s first for cutting ribs with the assistance of an X-ray, no matter how difficult the cut,” he continues. “It improves food quality and consistency, and automates the whole process including sorting. It can also be combined with other JBT solutions to form a complete line.”

JBT to showcase combined nut solutions at 2020 PTNPA Convention

Mixed Nuts_123rf

JBT will be showcasing its ability to deliver combined, turnkey pasteurization and roasting solutions across the nut category at the North American industry’s biggest event of the year, the Peanut & Tree Nut Processors Association (PTNPA) Convention 2020, which will be held from January 17-20 in Orlando, Florida. 

Unlike roasting in traditional dry conditions, the benefit of combined pasteurization and roasting through JBT’s JSP-I Jet Stream® Pasteurization System is that it enhances product quality, explains JBT Manager of Technology and Process Development, Ramesh Gunawardena. Drying in a controlled-humidity environment rather than a completely dry environment also takes a shorter time, meaning that throughput is increased at the same time.

The turnkey element comes into play, continues Gunawardena, because differences between nut types mean treatment and conditions have to be very different, explaining that too much heat can damage certain types of nuts. “We want to pasteurize the surface, not cook the product,” he says. However, irrespective of the process, Gunawardena emphasizes that JBT has the shortest pasteurization and drying times in the industry and as a result can ensure a smaller carbon footprint for customers.

Emerging trends
The ability to roast, as well as pasteurize, all sorts of nuts from peanuts to almonds are strong trends in the industry, driven by practical as well as economic reasons. “These are emerging trends in the food business where processors can add value through roasting and introducing different blends or seasonings to enhance the mouth feel,” says Gunawardena. “JBT has developed treatment zones that deliver clean and dry products irrespective of the nut, which we combine with being able to offer a turnkey solution and attractive financing.

“What is new is we have added new nuts to the list of products that can be handled by our pasteurization and roasting solution, namely pecans and macademias.”

Gunawardena also stresses JBT’s ability to overcome any potential pitfalls due to the lack of an official mandate governing nut processing in the US. “JBT already follows validated, best practice protocols in the almond industry, meaning we can help ensure companies are already compliant on the day a mandate does come into force,” he says. “If and when the regulatory change takes place, we already have proven processes similar to those in the almond industry that is now being used by nut processors to deliver a safe product.”

JBT will be showcasing the JSP-I Jet Stream® Pasteurization System and the JSP-C Compact at Booth 33 at the PTNPA Convention 2020, which takes place at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida from January 17-20, 2020.
