ELEA - PEF
Pulsed Electric Field technology
Elea is the world's leading supplier of Pulsed Electric Systems (PEF) to the food, beverage and scientific sectors.
Elea's PEF technology, developed over many years, is rapidly transforming food and beverage manufacturing around the world.
PEF changes the physical structure of fresh produce, leading to significant increases in yield, freshness, flavor, and nutritional preservation, as well as savings in time and energy.
PEF is applicable to a very broad range of products. Where quality counts it will become the technology of choice within the industry
ELEA PEF ADVANTAGE B 10, 100 & 1000 PULSED ELECTRIC FIELD SYSTEM
The PEF Advantage Belt system has been used throughout the potato-processing industry since 2010 and the PEF technology pre-treatment has become the standard worldwide due to its dramatic and positive changes to both product and process.
The Elea PEF Advantage Belt system is an energy-saving low-temperature process that replaces the need for blanching potatoes and other produce before cutting. As well as reducing energy and water consumption by up to 90%, the PEF Advantage Belt system is a volumetric treatment, so you can expect treatment uniformity, no matter the item of fresh produce.
This uniform softening means that a smooth cut can be achieved. French fries and chips achieve longer shapes, become more pliable and experience less breakage, ultimately leading to opportunities for more extreme snack shapes. What’s more, during deep-frying 10% less oil is absorbed and browning becomes more even for a brighter, more appetising colour.
Drying processes for the production of dried fruit and vegetables can be enhanced too. The pre-treatment of food with the PEF Advantage Belt system leads to a greater diffusion coefficient which greatly improves the drying process in both temperature and time. This leads to energy savings and better shape, colour and overall quality of the dried products.
ELEA PEF ADVANTAGE P 1, 10, 100 & 1000 PULSED ELECTRIC FIELD LIQUID SYSTEM
Elea PEF Advantage Pipe systems extend the shelf life of juice, smoothies, milk, wine and other liquid consumables with Pulsed Electric Field and at a much lower temperature than traditional thermal pasteurisation. This means your customers can enjoy higher quality, fresh and colourful juice that hasn’t compromised on essential nutrients or flavour.
Extraction with PEF Advantage Pipe is enhanced with valuable vitamins, colour and antioxidants from fruit processing which ultimately results in higher yields.
Our PEF Advantage Pipe systems create plenty of positive changes to the manufacturing process including less machine down-time. Also, as juices and smoothies have a longer shelf life, it means that there’s potential for greater market reach and better distribution of your product.
The PEF Advantage Pipe range of systems have processing capacities from 50L to 10,000L per hour and each individual system has a hygienic integrated design that is both CIP and SIP ready.
The Pulsed Electric Field systems put control in the hands of the operator and mean that our clients have full customisation of the process parameters. The modular design of the PEF Advantage Pipe system is simple to configure and easy to maintain and what’s more, close monitoring ensures compliance with all HACCP requirements.
