PEF specialist

Pulsemaster is specialized in pulsed electric field processing and aspires to apply this innovative technology – also known as electroporation – to a broad spectrum of applications in the food industry. Not only as a method for mild food preservation, but also as a means of improving process efficiency and product quality.

PEF technology has enormous potential in both the food & beverage industry and scientific sectors. Pulsemaster’s goal is to exploit and spread the full potential of pulsed electric field treatment. This way Pulsemaster wants to help companies further improve their processes and products.


PEF technology meets industry needs for natural and clean processes. Pulsemaster’s industrial sized Conditioner has a focus on physical processes in food industry to maximize the effect of your raw materials and to enhance food quality and safety.


Pulsemaster’s Solidus is a surpringly effective Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) pilot-scale batch unit that can treat solids and liquids for research purposes. The use of Pulsemaster’s Solidus is not limited to solids like fruits, plants and vegetables. Intact animal tissues like pieces of meat and fish can be PEF treated to optimize cure time, drying, marination and tumble processes.


Pulsemaster’s Membrana conductivity measurement device allows you to measure and analyze permeability in intact solid plant tissues or whole organs, like potatoes and sugar beets before and after PEF treatment. With this device you will be able to measure the effect of electroporation of vegetable tissue, during manufacturing. By analyzing the effect you can determine which PEF parameters will give you optimal treatment results.



The innovative Dutch company Pulsemaster combines years of unique experience with pulsed electric field processing. The production facility is located in Bladel, The Netherlands. Our highly skilled engineering experts have deep knowledge and industry experience in designing and building over 70 PEF systems since 2009 for a broad spectrum of applications and outputs in the food industry worldwide.
