Pulsemaster Conditioner Turnkey Industrial Solutions

Layout example of Pulsemaster Conditioner Turnkey Industrial Pulsed Electric Field Solutions

Pulsemaster Conditioner Turnkey Industrial Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) Solutions are complete, fully integrated and modular systems for either cell disintegration of solids or microbial inactivation of liquids on an industrial scale, built according to the customer’s production requirements.

The typical average power range of these industrial pulsed electric field systems is up to 100 kW and the pulses are applied at repetition rates of up to a maximum of 500 pulses per second to allow sufficient treatment of all volume elements.

As a continuous short-time process with low space requirements, pulsed electric field processing systems can easily be implemented in existing lines.

Unique features

Marx solid-state generator operation principle is discharge of capacitors in series. The stored energy is discharged into a well defined load (treatment chamber). Switching in series gives a fast rise time of the pulse, which is necessary for an effective PEF treatment. A fast rise time, is a unique feature of our concept.

In addition, Pulsemaster has developed innovative switching power supplies that utilize advanced capacitor charging technology that enables our systems to be significantly more reliable than comparable products. Advantages are Operator safety, improved modulator reliability and pulse-to-pulse control.

Power range

Our robust Marx solid-state typology enables better pulse control and high reliability. Pulsemaster can supply a range of robust PEF systems, covering a wide power range up to 100kW per system. The design of these tailor-made pulsed electric field systems is compact and modular for easy integration and power upgrade. Our industrial PEF systems are not only easy to use, but also easy to service and maintain, thanks to the modular design with field replaceable units.

Our highly skilled engineering experts have deep knowledge and industry experience in designing and building over 70 PEF systems since 2009 for a broad spectrum of applications and outputs in the food industry worldwide. The applied pulse generators have a proven track record for food industry and research applications.

Marx solid-state typology pulse generators

The use of Marx solid-state, high voltage pulsed power systems for PEF processing is the key to commercial applications. Solid-state technology allows this pulsed electric fields technology to scale from pilot-scale batch units for research applications to large-scale food processing systems as demonstrated by the commercial adoption of PEF with over 70 Marx solid-state typology systems installed worldwide since 2009.

Highest quality engineering

All PEF systems used by industry to make French fries and crisps, built according to Marx solid-state typology and running succesfully in potato industry in Germany, US, Canada, The Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Australia, India and China, technically originate from the work of Pulsemaster’s highly qualified team of German engineering experts. The design of Pulsemaster PEF systems are suitable for any regional installation and control system requirements and adhere to all regional certification requirements. Each Pulsemaster PEF system is built with the highest quality German and Dutch engineering to withstand continuous operation (24/24) in industry.

Corridor

The pulse generator unit can be installed at a maximum of 20 meters from the treatment tank unit with the transport belt and treatment chamber. This also allows you to install the pulse generator unit outside the actual production hall in a climate controlled corridor and the treatment tank unit with the transport belt and treatment chamber inside the production hall.

Robust, modular & hygienic design

All our systems are robust with proven solid state components for the pulse generators and a UL and CE approved design. The input power options are versatile. Our modular design is executed with so-called field replaceable units and enables power upgrades. For example, you can upgrade your existing 50kW system to 100kW. If desired we adapt and customize our systems to your specific requirements.

Quality

Pulsemaster’s Conditioners are built according to the highest quality engineering standards to withstand 24/24 continuous operation and to deliver optimal performance and energy efficiency. Energy is delivered in form of rectangular pulses with highest energy efficiency, to limit electric power consumption.

Hygiene

All our units have a food compliant hygienic design and are made of durable food grade materials, They also are CIP (Clean In Place) or SIP (Steam In Place) ready. A complete control of process parameters and online monitoring of treatment dose is possible to comply with all HACCP requirements.

Easy operation and maintenance

Pulsemaster Conditioner PEF units can be easily operated and controlled using a touch screen

Control

Stand alone touchscreen operation or remote controlled operation is possible. PLC integration and extensive monitoring options guarantee ease of operation. Another feature is the logging of process parameters and connectivity to external PLC. All Conditioners are designed for easy implementation into your existing production line.

Service

Remote monitoring, services and maintenance are included in the design of a Pulsemaster’s Conditioner. All machines have safety interlock switches and easy service access for cleaning, inspection and maintenance.
