As a thermal process authority, Campden BRI offers food processing support to help you in various ways without having to
perform testing, and sometimes without having to visit your manufacturing facility. Our input, as an independent third-party expert, can provide
you, your customers and accreditation bodies assurance in your processing operations, and process validation procedures.
Continuous flow processes
Products such milk, juices and sauces are often heat treated via continuous flow systems where they are pumped through
heat exchangers and holding tubes before filling. Often known as either UHT or HTST processing, they cannot be validated in the traditional way
using temperature probes.
At Campden BRI, our experts have experience working with and validating continuous processes all over the world, and
typically involve a combination of document reviews, calculations and site inspections.
Thermal process review
If your business is undertaking validation work you may need support to ensure you are doing the work correctly and the
results support the Critical Control Point (F0, pasteurisation value) that has been ascribed. Our experts regularly undertake reviews of
scheduled thermal processes using process records and validation results, sometimes supported with a site visit.
Trouble shooting and process deviations
Has a batch of your product deviated from the scheduled process? Perhaps you are not sure whether it is safe to sell?
Are you experiencing spoilage issues and not sure if your pasteurisation process is suitable? If you are having issues related to the
manufacturing and processing of your products then please get in touch, there’s every chance we could help you.
It is always worth reviewing validation reports and processing records from the standpoint of optimisation. Many
manufacturers we work with are over-processing product and impacting quality, throughput and energy usage. There are several tools we can use to
explore optimisation for you, as it is critical that any potential changes to the scheduled process have no impact on the safety of the product.
Many factors affect the amount of heat delivered, the product it contains, and the degree of mixing during the process.
