JBT webinar to show why LESS is more

tech photo generic

JBT will be holding an invitation-only Customer Webinar on the innovative JBT Low Energy Suction System (LESS) on May 29 at 2:00pm EDT, with the focus on explaining why this technology not only can lead to very substantial energy savings but can also deliver more cases of product to the warehouse every day.

A technological break-through (patent pending) for 1800mm static Steam Water Spray (SWS) retorts, LESS achieves energy savings by employing a new, suction system that reduces retort water volume by up to 45%, thereby decreasing heating and cooling costs per process. 

But more than just an energy-saving application, the improved efficiency of the solution means that process times can be reduced leading to increased throughput.

“We developed this system to save energy – if there is less water in the retort, it takes less steam to heat up and cool, so you save energy both on the heating and the cooling side,” explains Rick Wilson, JBT’s Global Product Line Director, Retort & Rotary. 

“With faster heating and cooling times, you speed up the whole process and are able to run more cycles per day on the same piece of equipment.”

Already being used by food processors across a wide range of industries, LESS-equipped 1800mm retorts are capable of quickly and efficiently processing products in everything from ready-to-drink pouches and other flexible packaging to glass jars, plastic tubs, aluminum containers and cylindrical cans.
