La mejora en la extracción de jugos, pulpa, aceites esenciales y soluciones innovadoras para el seguimiento de embarques y la integración virtual de equipos, serán algunos de los temas que se abordarán durante el Seminario de Cítricos de JBT a celebrarse en Argentina el próximo día 26 de noviembre, en la ciudad de Tucumán.

El evento, dirigido tanto a los clientes existentes como a los que recién se incorporan, abarcará una diversidad de temas de interés para los procesadores de cítricos, desde los métodos para la recolección de pulpa hasta el uso de la tecnología de gateway iOPS® patentada por JBT para mejorar el control de los procesos de producción.” Analizaremos las mejores prácticas en sistemas de extracción y procesamiento de JBT, pero también incluiremos contenido adicional que resulte útil para los participantes”, dice Januário Soligon, Director de Ventas y Servicio de la división de Alimentos Líquidos de JBT en Sudamérica.

Soluciones tecnológicas
Entre los contenidos del seminario se incluyen una visión general de la estructura de la EEAOC y de los servicios disponibles para el sector citrícola argentino, a cargo del Dr. Hernán Salas, destacado investigador con sede en Tucumán, y un análisis de los obstáculos que se han adoptado para evitar la propagación de Huanglongbing en la región, por parte de Pablo Padilla, presidente de la Asociación Citrícola del Noroeste Argentino, ACNOA. 

Las soluciones tecnológicas serán uno de los temas centrales del seminario, y habrá oportunidad de ver las recientes innovaciones de JBT que ya están disponibles en Argentina. Destacan entre ellas SafeTraces, un nuevo aliado de JBT, que se especializa en soluciones innovadoras para el rastreo de envíos de productos a todo el mundo.

Se expondrá la capacidad que ofrece la plataforma iOPS, que recopila datos en tiempo real de equipos y maquinaria interconectados, y que permite a los clientes tomar decisiones oportunas. Durante este proceso, el gateway iOPS puede mejorar la eficiencia general de las operaciones, permitiendo la detección de problemas potenciales antes de que se conviertan en problemas. “El disponer de un sistema gateway de iOPS les ofrece a los clientes mucha más información sobre los procesos y datos precisos sobre el rendimiento y la eficiencia, ayudándolos a tomar mejores decisiones en el día a día”, agregó Soligon.

Beneficios tangibles
También se analizarán en el seminario, los sistemas de recuperación de pulpa y se explicará cómo se puede envasar asépticamente la pulpa separada en contenedores. El sistema, explica Soligon, puede ofrecer beneficios reales y tangibles a los clientes al permitirles sacar más provecho del mismo volumen de fruta.

La extracción de aceites esenciales es otro tema de gran importancia que dará la oportunidad de conocer la cuarta generación del exitoso sistema MORE (Modular Oil Recovery Equipment), que incluye nuevas funciones automatizadas para facilitar el trabajo de los operadores, y también se dará a conocer a otro aliado de JBT, IceGen, que ofrece soluciones de congelación rápida para el transporte seguro de zumo, puré y pulpa.

The potential offered by the iOPS platform, which collects data in real time from inter-connected equipment and machinery  enabling customers to make timely decisions, will be featured. In the process, the iOPS gateway can improve the overall efficiency of operations, allowing for the detection of potential issues before they become problems. “Having an iOPS gateway in place provides customers with much more information on processes and accurate data on performance and efficiency, helping them to take better day-to-day decisions,” adds Soligon.

Tangible benefits
Pulp recovery systems will also be examined at the seminar, including a look at how the separated pulp can be filled aseptically into containers. The system, explains Soligon, can deliver real, tangible benefits to customers by enabling them to get more out of the same volume of fruit.

Oil recovery will also be a key topic with a look at the recently-launched fourth generation of the successful MORE (Modular Oil Recovery Equipment) system, which includes new, automated features to make life easier for the operator, plus there will be a look at another JBT alliance partner, IceGen, and their rapid freezing solutions for safe transportations of juice, puree and pulp.

FTNON Open Days to showcase fresh-cut solutions

FTNON lettuce - Heemskerk Fresh & Easy

JBT FTNON will showcase several of its groundbreaking innovations developed to improve food safety, hygiene and processing efficiency for fresh-cut salad and vegetable producers at a series of Open Days taking place at the company’s facility in Almelo, the Netherlands from November 11-15 2019.

Visitors to the Open Days will be able to view demonstrations of solutions including the CoreTakr® Flex and the CoreTakr® Iceberg for safe, efficient robotic de-coring of iceberg lettuce, cabbage and other products. The Bell pepper de-corer (SPD-200) removes the unpleasant and time-consuming task of having to core bell peppers manually, while improving productivity and yield in the process. 

The Magnetic Onion Peeler (MOP-200) – developed by FTNON in collaboration with Gills Onions and the American USDA – reduces the costs of maintenance and is able to process up to 120 onions per minute by using frictionless permanent super magnetism, eliminating the need for wires, tubes, belts and springs. 

FTNON’s washing and drying lines include the Super Batch Centrifuge SBC, a solution which has been especially developed for drying fragile salads by evenly dividing the pieces around a centrifuge in a conical drum. The system’s easy-to-clean, hygienic design helps ensure less product damage and at the same time reduces energy costs and the overall footprint. 

The Open Days will also feature demonstrations of JBT FTNON alliances and JBT’s new IoT software platform known as iOPS®.

Effective methods for increasing the shelf life of citrus, as well as new solutions for packaging and labeling, as well as tips for benefitting from growing demand for fresh-cut foods, were just some of the topics tackled during JBT’s recent one-day seminar in Cairo, Egypt, which attracted growers and packers from across the country.

The event – JBT’s first dedicated post-harvest seminar in Egypt – took place in the headquarters of the country’s Agricultural Export Council (AEC) and featured a range of top-level speakers from both within and outside JBT. Discussion subjects included citrus coatings, packhouse performance improvement and produce processing.

Among the speakers was Arno Erasmus, a Postharvest Plant Pathologist focusing on disease control and fruit quality management for major US-based grower-marketer Wonderful Citrus who examined the benefits of post-harvest fungicides for citrus.

John Siddle, JBT’s Global Product Line Director for Fresh Produce Technologies, discussed the science of citrus coatings, including JBT’s innovative Endura-Fresh™ range, while techniques for effective tray top sealing were the focus of a presentation from one of the newest additions to the JBT family, Proseal.

Francisco Peris, JBT’s Sales & Business Development Manager for Fresh Produce Technologies said the seminar, which attracted 61 delegates from 25 leading packers, was aimed at helping meet the Egyptian produce sector’s high expectations for market growth. “Egypt has the water and the land, and we expect to see strong growth in the produce sector in the medium term,” he said. “JBT will be looking to support this growth with our post-harvest solutions, which can help improve the shelf life for citrus.”
