Handbook of Food Processing Equipment (2nd Edition) by George Saravacos, Athanasios E. Kostaropoulos

By George Saravacos, Athanasios E. Kostaropoulos

This article covers the layout of foodstuff processing apparatus in response to key unit operations, resembling heating, cooling, and drying. furthermore, mechanical processing operations corresponding to separations, delivery, garage, and packaging of foodstuff fabrics, in addition to an creation to meals approaches and foodstuff processing vegetation are discussed.

Handbook of nutrients Processing apparatus is an important reference for nutrition engineers and foodstuff technologists operating within the meals method industries, in addition to for designers of procedure crops. The booklet additionally serves as a uncomplicated reference for nutrition approach engineering students.

The chapters hide engineering and monetary concerns for all very important steps in foodstuff processing. This study is predicated at the actual houses of foodstuff, the analytical expressions of shipping phenomena, and the outline of general apparatus utilized in foodstuff processing. Illustrations that designate the constitution and operation of commercial foodstuff processing apparatus are presented.

The fabrics of building and fabrication of meals processing gear are coated the following, in addition to the choice of the right gear for varied nutrition processing operations. Mechanical processing apparatus comparable to measurement aid, measurement expansion, homogenization, and combining are mentioned. Mechanical separations gear equivalent to filters, centrifuges, presses, and solids/air structures, plus apparatus for commercial foodstuff processing akin to warmth move, evaporation, dehydration, refrigeration, freezing, thermal processing, and dehydration, are provided. gear for novel foodstuff strategies akin to excessive strain processing, are mentioned. The appendices comprise conversion of devices, chosen thermophysical homes, plant utilities, and an in depth checklist of brands and providers of nutrients gear.

In some cases, the same processing facility may be used for processing of different food products, such as thermal processing of fruit/vegetable juices and milk. Plant improvements may include the following: 1. Production. Food quality and plant productivity may be improved through new and better processing methods and equipment. 2. Conveyance. Increasing the speed of conveyance/transportation of raw material and products will reduce losses through spoilage and mechanical injury. 3. Storage. Better storage facilities and conditions will reduce quality losses and minimize logistic costs.

The physical state of the raw materials and products (liquids or solids) affects decisively plant design. Thus, gravity flow of the materials can be utilized in processing liquids and grains. 4 Food Plant Design 3. 4. 5. 6. 33 low-humidity packaging and storage areas are needed, while high humidity is needed in packaging and cold storage of ready-to-eat vegetables and fruit salads. Food hygiene. Hygiene (sanitation) is a fundamental requirement of all food plant operations: processing, packaging, storage, buildings, and personnel.

1991) or processing of new foods. The pilot plant is useful in determining new food processes and in testing new processing equipment under industrial-like operating conditions. It is often used for the production of large samples of new food products, which are needed for storage and marketing tests. , a plant layout should be followed. A number of empirical specifications and standard practices (good manufacturing practices, GMPs) are necessary for the hygienic and safe operation of food processing equipment and processing plants (Gould 1994; NZIFST 1999).
