The CEPT platform, a high-voltage generator combined with a treatment chamber, uses the technology within FoodTech for increased extraction from the raw material and extended shelf-life and increased quality of the final product.
The evaluation period is now coming to an end and ArcAroma said the results are promising. The dairy company has now decided to go from a temporary installation to fully integrating CEPT into the production process to achieve even higher results. The agreement has therefore been extended until the end of Q1 2021.
“We are pleased that we have achieved positive results with the customer and how we in this process have been able to further develop our treatment chamber technology - lessons that will benefit our other applications. We started with our product juiceCEPT+ and have gradually adapted it to develop this new application. We look forward to taking this further to a fully integrated solution," said Johan Möllerström, CEO ArcAroma.
The evaluation period at the dairy company achieved a good reduction of bacteria through the treatment with CEPT, and in order to further streamline and improve the process, ArcAroma's unit is now further integrated into the customer's production process.
The customer invests in the process control and ArcAroma contributes with a reduction in rent for three months and adaptation of CEPT. The changes in the process will be flow optimization, start and stop sequences, cooling and a customized clean-in-place program (CIP).
After the evaluation period, the dairy company has an option to be able to buy out juiceCEPT+ for €420,000 ($513,790), minus a paid rent of 750,000 SEK ($90,700).
