The Allpax Multimode R&D 2402 series retorts are the most versatile R&D machines in the industry. Every unit is 100% custom-built to order and can be as simple or as flexible as the customer requires.

COVINGTON, LA — Allpax, a ProMach brand, features retort and retort room automation solutions for the ready-to-drink (RTD) beverage industry at Pack Expo 2022. Allpax joins more than a dozen ProMach brands in a multi-exhibit “Canning Solutions” showcase illustrating the one-stop-shop advantages of selecting ProMach as the primary equipment supplier for canned beverages, offering machinery and systems for blending & processing, container conveying and accumulation, filling & sealing, retorting, labeling, coding, bundling, case palletizing, stretch wrapping, etc., plus world-class turn-key engineering and system integration capabilities. Pack Expo, Oct. 23-26, McCormick Place, Chicago, Allpax Booth # N-5350.

When Allpax refers to the canning of RTD beverages, it is in the broadest sense of the term ‘canning’ which includes the handling of multiple different types of packaging formats from aluminum cans to glass and plastic bottles to flexible stand-up and spouted pouches. Allpax retorts and retort room automation equipment processes shelf-stable low-acid drinks such as milk-based coffee, tea, and energy drinks packaged in the various containers mentioned above.

The in-booth demo at Pack Expo focuses on Allpax’s world-leading Model 2402 Multimode R&D Retort that helps research institutions and processors alike bring new shelf-stable foods and beverages to market more quickly, and with higher levels of quality. The Multimode R&D Retort is controlled by the same software as Allpax’ production retorts, thus supporting fast and accurate scale up from lab to production. The 2402 will demonstrate rotary agitation, which in conjunction with the integrated hotwell tank greatly reduces sterilization and cooling times. Reducing product heat exposure through faster processing results in higher throughput and better tasting shelf stable RTD beverages.

Allpax’s sole business focus is on the retort room. Allpax is the only retort system supplier in North America that designs, manufactures, builds, assembles, fully tests, and supports its installed base of production retort equipment. Allpax controls, including hardware and software, are FDA compliant. The company has more retort installations serving the RTD industry than any other supplier in North America.

All the equipment and systems Allpax sells can be remotely connected to via the internet, thus facilitating 24/7 remote support for fast and effective problem resolution. All replacement parts and pre- and post-support services are available directly through Allpax. This ensures that components are of the highest quality, and that qualified and experienced engineers and technicians are available to work on the equipment.
