The PPMA Exhibition is hugely important to our business. The show provides us with the opportunity to catch up with old friends in the industry, as well as making some new friends too. We always look forward to showcasing what we do.

This year's show was a huge success. We received lots of visitors who were interested in seeing the latest technology and equipment.available. Our team of experienced advisors were on hand to provide expert advice and guidance to those looking for a  Thermal Processing Solution. Our range of Thermal Processing technology and equipment is currently used by the UK's leading food & drink manufacturers. 

This year we showcased the following food processing equipment on our stand: -

  • Revtech provided a demonstration unit for heat treatment solutions to sterilise dry ingredients such as nuts, seeds, barley, herbs, spices and flour to name a few. Roasting and toasting is also possible at the same time to add flavour and colour. Recent applications include malting Barley and pasteurising Marigold heads! 
  • Terlet exhibited a new generation  of Terlotherm which is a scraped surface heat exchanger and provides rapid heating for sauces, soups and fruit preparations without steam injection and hyper chilling. This is ideal for all kinds of products including dairy sauces. Typical results are less than 90 seconds to give a temperature change of 85°C. In all cases optimum heat transfer is achieved
