In a FFE (Tomato paste production line) tomato juice will enter the
machine in vacuum condition. Vacuum condition is necessary for
eliminating oxygen and other microorganisms interference. Following
previous stage, tomato juice which has a pre-heat will be heated,
cooked and prepared by non-contact water steam. Water steam is in
isolated parts of machine and spreads the heat to all necessary
spots. In old and traditional methods, tomato paste durability
decreased so much due to cooking in a not isolated condition.
Quality standards were not acceptable according to new hygienic
rules and many benefits of tomato were eliminating from production
due to direct usage of fire.This method has so much benefits. One of
them is being full automated and eliminating human interference.
Human interference will always affect hygienic conditions and causes
contamination of production.
Beside hygienic conditions, being full automated has two more
benefits. It reduces human resources and their costs and speed of
production will increase impressively. The final result is price
reduction for customer.
But it's benefits is not finished yet. All process stages we
explained about, will keep production nutrients. In tomato paste ,
vitamins like A, K, C, B group and minerals like potassium,
Manganese, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, fibers , proteins and
organic compounds like lycopene which are so useful and necessary
for our health will be kept in aseptic process. Also color, taste
and smell of tomato will be safe. While in other methods this would
not be achieved.
FFE method in tomato paste production line
Using FFE method in tomato paste production is somehow new.
This method has lower power consumption compared to Forced method
(Cold Crushed method). Thin film of production free fall on heated
surface results 4 times more absorption of heating and flash against
forced method and it makes FFE method economical. Our machine uses
injecting method for vacuum in FFE. This is our exclusive method
which makes our FFE more economical among others with higher
production quality in color and other important facts.
