Abstract

An existingverticalretortwas modified to process all the three containers with steam, water and steam/air mixture. The modified vertical retort was used to process glass jars and retortable pouches. The experiments conducted in the processing of glass jars and retortable pouches indicated good results with no damage to the containers during processing. The specifications of the components used and the pipe connections for the modification have been discussed. A table of the minimum pipe sizes based on the retort dimensions is suggested. The method to determine the compressor capacity is provided. The operation of the retort for processing glass jars and retortable pouches is included.
