Application of Vacuum Pump in Food and Beverage Industry
Many processes in the food and beverage industry can be optimized by using VOLM vacuum system.
In addition, in the packaging process of food and beverage, VOLM vacuum pump can be used to discharge air, prolong the storage time of food and remove odor.
Application of Vacuum Pump
Degassing of mineral water
Natural source mineral water contains carbonate, minerals and iron. If exposed to air, iron dissolved in water oxidizes, making the water taste worse. It is necessary to remove iron from water under pressure of about 50 mbar, but VOLM vacuum pump is first used to remove carbides in water, and then it is introduced to produce soda water.
Deodorization of Salad Oil and Fat
Long-term exposure can make salad oil and fat smell bad. Before further treatment, the oxide must be removed. This can be achieved by injecting steam, which can absorb odors, and then use VOLM vacuum equipment to remove steam.
Sterilization of tea and condiments
Tea and condiments imported from tropical areas are placed in containers and then shipped, often with pests, insects, fungi and bacteria. If further processing is needed, they must be killed first by placing the containers in vacuum containers and emptying the air. Then, steam or sterilizing gas is injected into the container.
In order to produce sausages, the mixed meat is cut into small pieces, and seasonings and additives are added. Vacuum air during meat cutting and mixing can prevent the mixed meat from being oxidized, which can affect the taste and appearance of sausages. Vacuum device is used to evacuate air under pressure of about 100 mbar. The VOLM vacuum pump is insensitive to both meat and granules.
It's hard to see dry and smoked ham on a real fireplace. Instead, ham is made by soaking, which can soak meat faster and more directly after air is exhausted.
Wetting of tobacco products
If not properly humidified, the tobacco products packed in the box are too fragile and can be broken into fine particles in the process of further processing. VOLM vacuum pump is used to evacuate the air in the box, add steam, and sometimes add aromatics.
VOLM liquid ring vacuum pump can be used to assist the evaporation of liquid substances in mixtures. Evaporator is usually a packed tower, according to the actual use of environmental conditions, VOLM vacuum pump material can choose standard materials, stainless steel can also be used. Vacuum evaporators can be used in many applications, such as milk evaporators in milk processing plants, concentrated liquid evaporators in pulp mills, crystallization devices in chemical plants and tray evaporators in sugar mills.
