Pulsemaster’s Pulsed Electric Field systems and its opportunities for dehydrated healthy snack manufacturing. Healthier snacks, made from potatoes, vegetables and fruits. For food & snack processors seeking to launch new and innovative premium snack food products. Pulsemaster’s Pulsed Electric Fields technology applied as a wet disruption method of plant cells, prior to the extraction and drying processes.

A PEF pre-treatment prior to dehydration

PEF used as a pre-treatment technique to alter the plant cells of raw materials, prior to dehydration and drying processes. Pulsemaster’s PEF enables high-speed, low temperature drying above or below freezing point while preserving nutritional value, bioactivity, flavour, colour and a texture better than existing classical methods, without PEF pre-treatment.

PEF and extraction efficiency of cold pressed olive oil

A Pulsemaster PEF-system for olive oil processing

Pulsemaster have succesfully developed a dedicated Pulsed Electric Field system for olive oil processing, max 10 US tons/h (9,000 kg/h) loading rate. Pulsemaster’s PEF is a physical, non-thermal and low-energy processing method that may complement the crushing step of the olives by formation of pores in cell membranes. Objective is permeabilisation of cell membranes leading to cell disruption. Cell disruption in terms of applied electric field intensity and pulse number, which can be exploited to increase yield and quality (aroma’s) from day 0 to the end of storage.

Maximizing the extraction yield and improve aroma concentration

In olive oil processing, Pulsed Electric Field technology can be used to enhance cold pressed olive oil extraction at lower temperatures, to obtain a higher yield and more aroma’s. Even important, PEF processing can reduce processing time in olive oil plants.
