Quarterly - News August 2016

Allow the current issue of the AFT Quarterly to take you inside the think tanks of the world of food technology and to introduce you to innovative solutions and research projects.

Rapidojet high-pressure hydration


A good solution here is to use the high-pressure moistening mixer “Rapidojet”.

The mode of operation of the patented method is amazingly simple – dry material is conveyed continuously into a vertical mixing tube (volumetrically or gravimetrically) by a dosing unit. There it is isolated in free fall after colliding with a deflector plate.

The liquid is ejected at high speed (250 – 500 km/h) through a high-pressure nozzle and broken down into tiny water drop-lets that meet the free-falling dry materials in the air.

Oil-free air from High Speed Turbo compressors


Not only are most industries heavily reliant on compressed air but its use is also diversifying. This is also true for the food and beverage industries.

Here the compressed air must be ex-ceptionally clean, because it may get in contact with the products. The new High Speed Turbo technology (HST) from BOGE operates absolutely oil-free.

Honey-ProfilingTM: An innovative method for the analysis of honey authenticity and quality

Bruker BioSpin

In a context where fraud on honey is increasing using more and more sophisticated methods, the need for holistic, non-targeted analytical approaches has emerged.

Complaints concern mainly the addition of sugar syrups or wrong labeling of origin. The latest is usually detected with pollen analysis.

On the other hand, the adulteration of honey with plant-derived sugar syrups is difficult to prove.
