In today’s world, sustainability and efficiency are of utmost importance, especially in the food and beverage industry. JBT is a global leader in food and beverage processing solutions. Their innovative evaporators provide energy-efficient, cost-effective solutions to boost sustainability and improve the quality of the final product.

These evaporators are designed to reduce water and energy consumption, while still delivering top-notch results. They also offer clean-in-place (CIP) solutions to ensure that the processing environment is hygienic and safe.

JBT is committed to helping its customers achieve their sustainability and efficiency goals. This article will examine the JBT family of evaporators. We will focus on the sustainability benefits they provide and the unique features that benefit their customers.

T.A.S.T.E. Evaporator: Preserving Organoleptic Properties and Saving Energy

The T.A.S.T.E. (Thermally Accelerated Short Time Evaporator) was originally developed for concentrating citrus juices. Its key sustainability benefits and customer advantages include:

  • Preservation of organoleptic properties: The Aroma Recovery System (A.R.S.) helps maintain the appearance, aroma, and taste of fresh fruit juice. This leads to a higher-quality end product that retains more natural characteristics, providing a competitive advantage for juice producers.
  • Energy savings: The evaporator’s design allows for rapid processing and minimal impact on juice quality while maximizing energy efficiency. This results in lower operating costs and reduced carbon footprint, which is a significant selling point for environmentally conscious customers.
  • Resource optimization: Byproducts recovered by the T.A.S.T.E. Evaporator, such as essential oils and concentrated aromas, can be used as key natural ingredients to reconstitute juice from concentrate. The water removed from the juice can be used for cleaning. It can also be treated for crop irrigation. This efficient use of resources reduces waste and supports a circular economy, benefiting both the environment and the bottom line.

Forced Circulation Evaporators: High-Quality Tomato and Fruit Paste

Designed specifically for high-quality tomato and fruit paste production, the Forced Circulation Evaporator offers several sustainability benefits and customer advantages:

  • Low temperature profile: This key feature helps maintain the organoleptic properties of the final product. This also reduces damage caused by high temperatures and overcooking. By preserving the natural flavors, colors, and textures of the ingredients, producers can deliver a superior product to their customers.
  • Energy savings: The multiple effects design allows for reduced energy consumption, leading to lower operating costs and a smaller carbon footprint. This is an important consideration for customers looking to minimize their environmental impact and comply with increasingly strict sustainability regulations.
  • Extended operating time: The evaporator can work for more than 45 days without downtime, nearly an entire season. This uninterrupted operation increases productivity, reduces downtime-related costs, and contributes to a more efficient and sustainable production process.

Hybrid Evaporator: Superior Concentrates Quality and Low Operating Cost

The Hybrid Evaporator combines the advantages of two evaporators: T.A.S.T.E. and Forced Circulation. It is perfect for processing vegetable, tropical fruit, and juice products. Its sustainability benefits and customer advantages include:

Increased utilization: The evaporator can process a wide variety of products throughout different seasons. This improves machine utilization and reduces the need for multiple, specialized machines. This increased flexibility allows customers to optimize their production capabilities and reduce their overall environmental impact.

  • Energy efficiency: The Hybrid Evaporator consumes less energy, reducing operating costs and environmental impact. This design is energy-efficient and contributes to the sustainable goals of food and beverage processors. It also helps them meet the demands of eco-conscious consumers.
  • Improved organoleptic properties: The evaporator ensures the highest final quality for viscous products while minimizing thermal damage. This results in a superior end product with better flavor, color, and texture, providing a competitive edge in the market.
  • Easy operation and maintenance: The Hybrid Evaporator is easy to use and clean. It also requires less maintenance. This saves time, resources, and reduces the environmental footprint.
  • Water conservation: The evaporator has been designed to minimize water usage. It is only used for essential purposes like pump seal cooling and makeup in the cooling tower circuit. This efficient use of water resources contributes to a more sustainable production process and supports water conservation efforts.
