Allpax, a product brand of ProMach, will unveil AllTrax retort basket tracking system, which is integrated with the firm’s patent-pending telescoping loader.
The company will exhibit the AllTrax retort basket tracking system at Pack Expo event in Chicago, which will take place from 14 to 17 October.
Together, it provides a seamless solution for lowering the risk of product recalls and improving worker safety
With AllTrax, any deviation from the food product’s proscribed course from basket loading to unloading creates an alarm condition and halts a basket’s progress until the fault is cleared by authorized personnel.
AllTrax is available for automated and non-automated basket handling. It offers multiple benefits such as stainless steel/laser etched barcode tags that extend the service life of the product. It also offers the flexibility of either automated or manual scanning and an easy-to-use interface.
The patent pending Allpax telescoping retort loader automatically moves retort baskets into and out of retorts. The loader reduces risk of injury by eliminating the need for workers to maneuver retort baskets inside a sterilization vessel.
The telescoping loader can be used on new retorts or retrofitted to existing horizontal retorts regardless of manufacturer. Loaders are compatible with either one or two door configurations and can be used on any length retort. These small footprint devices are ideal for space constrained operations.
Allpax general manager and vice president Greg Jacob said: “With the telescoping loader integrated with the AllTrax tracking and electronic record keeping system, food processors have real time monitoring of the progress of each basket through the sterilization process, while at the same time, they have improved worker safety.”
