This week we despatched a phase 1 cooling equipment package that forms part of a 1000kg pressure cooking and vacuum cooling system, to produce pie fillings for a household brand.

The system can cool products such as pie fillings, ready meal sauces and soups to 5°C within around 45 minutes.

It is gentle on particulates and uses far less electrical energy than conventionally refrigerated blast chillers or other types of scraped surface cooling systems – saving energy costs as well as reducing the environmental impact.
