Rotation is fine for cans, glass jars, and bottles. But if your container lays down, you need something a little different. Gentle Motion retorts give you full production capacity AND the ability to shake your load to get all the benefits of agitation in pouches and semi-rigid trays.
The Gentle Motion retort provides the dual benefits of higher throughput afforded by reduced cycle times and reduced thermal burden which improves product quality. The Gentle Motion retort is over-engineered with a robust mechanical design for a long service life. Other advantages include improved in-process hydration of desiccated ingredients, reducing or eliminating the need to pre-soak or blanch. Agitation capability is five to 60 6-inch strokes per minute, and the variable frequency motor control allows for recipe flexibility.
