Thermal process review

Thermal process review

What can Campden BRI do to review thermal processes?

Campden BRI will review process records, validation data and other relevant information to provide an independent judgement of a scheduled process, whilst making recommendations for any improvements.

We can review and make assessments on the following:

  • Robustness of validation methods, such as for temperature distribution or heat penetration work
  • The use of any thermal process calculations
  • Appropriateness of the thermal process target, e.g. pasteurisation value or F0 value. Does it provide enough margin of safety? Could it be optimised?
  • Adherence to specific regulation, for example the FDA in the US. We can present these findings in a process authority letter, useful in the context of FDA filing.

This can be a low cost, high value exercise which gives customers assurance that thermal processes are appropriately scheduled based on robust validation testing.
