General accessories for TERRA Food-Tech® autoclaves
The following accessories are suitable for you, whether you have a horizontal autoclave and produce gourmet preserves or teach your students to do so. As for your food and packaging laboratory, which researches and develops new products using one of our vertical autoclaves:
Highly recommended to prevent lime scale residues from being deposited in the pipes and inside the sterilization chamber. In fact, we recommend this accessory to all customers who do not have a soft water mains connection. This is a water softener with an 11L ion exchange resin water tank that provides the autoclave with the soft water it needs for proper operation.
A specific software program that allows an individual lot report for small producers and for R&D departments to track product traceability. The software provides control, analysis and record keeping of the thermal processes conducted in the autoclave.
All sterilization parameters are continuously monitored and recorded to ensure proper operation of the equipment, including F0-P values0, batch number and evolution over time of Σ%F0 and Σ%P values0. All process data can be exported and analyzed individually with a dedicated software. Data from each cycle can be further analyzed with detailed graphs and reports in .CSV or .PDF format.
This accessory allows you to obtain a paper document of each cycle performed in the autoclave. This will help you to improve the traceability of your factory, workshop or laboratory, since it records and prints tickets with the data of each cycle, batch number, program name, evolution of parameters, time and day and error messages.
Additional flexible probe
TERRA Food-Tech® autoclaves are equipped with a chamber probe and a flexible probe as a standard feature. In addition, a second flexible probe can be added if you want a more comprehensive record of the treatment process. It is especially useful for research centers that want to collect more data during product development studies, in order to compare the effect of different containers when using the same recipe.
Drilling kits for containers
With the purchase of one of our autoclaves, you will receive a drilling kit for containers with rigid lids, ideal for use with containers with metal lids. If you have opted for other types of containers, such as semi-rigid ones with flexible walls like plastic trays, we recommend the THW-PG-V kit for vertical models and the THW-PG-H kit for benchtop models.
Temperature data logger in disk format
This accessory includes a data logger, a USB connection base and software that allows temperature monitoring of hermetically sealed containers such as bags, pouches or doypacks, where the use of a drilling kit and a flexible probe is not feasible. In order to do this, just insert the disk inside the product, process the load, retrieve the data logger and place it in the connection base to retrieve all the process data.
Accessories for TERRA Food-Tech® vertical autoclaves
Vertical autoclaves are designed for pasteurization or sterilization of medium or large quantities of gourmet preserves. Therefore, the different accessories available are designed to make your work easier:
Basket lifting cranes
Fixed or mobile lifting cranes for safe placement and removal of baskets with heavy loads inside the sterilization chamber of the autoclave. Specially designed for larger models and customers with high production requirements.
