JBT Retort Food Processing, Always a Smart Choice

Sanitizing food with JBT’s processing equipment makes good sense for a bunch (or batch!) of reasons. In fact, we’ve earned an admirable reputation in the industrial food manufacturing machinery space precisely because we bring so much value to the factory floor.

In addition to lower ownership costs and best-in-market resale value, there are plenty of other driving factors for this. Our food processing equipment – much more than mere autoclaves, industrial coolers, and industrial cookers – is packed with truly intelligent and useful features and options. 

  • Options for fully automated integration of all hardware (including the retorts)
  • Models with high holding capacity accommodate a large range of container types
  • Fast and uniform processing
  • Homogeneous temperature distribution
  • Indirect, sterile cooling via a plate heat exchanger
  • Saves water and eliminates the need for water treatment chemicals
  • Significantly decreases heating and cooling costs per process
  • Can securely hold irregularly shaped containers during rocking or agitating
  • LOG-TEC thermal process control monitors the retort system
  • Basket Tracking System (BTS) coordinates and tracks basket movements 
  • Advanced technology
