Production Shaka Retort - Agitation Demonstration

Production agitating shaka retorts are designed by engineers and specialists in the field of thermal processing of low-acid foods in cans, pouches, jars and bowls. The production retort machines that we offer are designed for even temperature distribution and are available with various types of agitation to deliver optimal come-up times.

The production agitating shaka retort offers a new dimension of shelf stable products and up to 90 percent cycle time savings. Using this machine benefits products by enhancing their taste, texture, and color as well as improving the nutritional value.

This production shaka retort only requires 2.24KW to maintain speed and features batch product flexibility, an automated retort loading option, an automated product clamping option, minimal retort stress or vibration, a conservative robust design, and will process rigid, semi-rigid, and flexible containers.

Allpax shaker retorts are shaking up the market. Shaker retorts dramatically reduce process cycle time and allow products to incorporate ingredients that were previously too sensitive to be retorted. This paves the way for new retorted product lines. Rapid reciprocating agitation can result in up to a 90% cycle time savings compared to static retorts. The result is stovetop-quality products with dramatically improved taste, color, and texture compared to conventional retorted foods.

The robust and balanced drivetrain behind the Allpax shaker process uses a minimum amount of energy once at speed. Product improvements are linked to rapid heating caused by vigorous agitation inside the container in both the heating and cooling phases. Because the thermal burden is dramatically minimized, quality can be achieved that rivals pasteurized and aseptically processed foods.

The Allpax shaker retort can be integrated with automated material handling equipment. With a quick-opening door, automated product clamping, and rapid cycle time, a smaller retort can rival the throughput of a multi-basket retort. Featuring a conservative, robust design, the Allpax shaker retort is built to perform, incorporating improvements to reduce the effects of stress and vibration. Utilizing specially designed trays, shaker retorts can process many of the same rigid and flexible packages that a conventional retort uses.
