Being the first of its kind, Safe Spice has contributed extensively to the new developments in the industry and has become a leader in the market for Steam Sterilising Herbs in particular.
Our steam sterilisation, hygenic milling and blending facilities enables us to process a whole world of herbs & spices.
We can process 6 tons in 20 minutes for our customers and suppliers from all corners of the globe.
With a daily capacity of 75 tons there is no competition for the Safe Spice System. We have developed technology know how and experience over the years making our system unique and superior according to global standards.
Safe Spice has developed a unique, proprietary and a natural sterilisation system.
Recently we have developed The New Safe Spice Vacuum Chamber.
Designed especially for the treatment of color/flavor sensitive delicate leafy herbs the Safe Spice Batch System does not incur any process loss.
The New improved system has improved process control. The greater range of vacuum and pressure can more effectively treat plus at the same time retain color and flavor.
The system is based on the principal that herbs, spices and ingredients are sterilised in cotton bags, which is the most suitable permeable material available for this application. The control of the system is done over a PLC, which operates according to the data obtained from the environment and product itself. The vacuum chamber is combined of Rot-a-jector, a combined ejector/condenser/liquid ring pump.
The high vacuum and fast steam injection system operates at the lowest possible cost and saves energy.
The benefits of this hybrid system combination are:
- Faster vacuum and steam injection system
- Reduced steam consumption
- Custom-design for each application
- Computerized Control - Process Control Equipment
- Temperature control with 12 probes
- 2 bar pressure - 120 °C can be reached without boiling volatiles
- Vacuum can be applied down to 10 mbar providing an evacuation system which allows products to exit the chamber at room temperature. Plus benefits of Higher and Faster Vacuum Level.
- Flexible pruduction
- Short process time
- No condensation - isolation all around the chamber
- Sloping Drip Pan
- Safety Devices
- Stainless steel body & 6 carts
- Safe handling and control
- No physical and chemical contamination risk
- Reliable results
- The amount and pressure of the steam
- The amount of vacuum in the system
- The temperature and pressure of the water entering and exiting the cooling tower can be monitored and recorded
- The recorded information can be used to improve product quality.
- With the touch screen monitor, the new system can be used much more easily. It is user friendly.
- The history can be recorded and the quality of the product can be assured.
- The information on history can be used for future evaluations.
- CONTROL SENSITIVITY
- REPORTS & ACTIONS OF SYSTEM FAILURES
- USER FRIENDLY
Technical features of the new system include:
Process Control Equipment in the New Safe Spice Chamber measures:
Computerized Control of the Chamber
The control of the chamber works with PLC Monitoring and Reporting is done through a PC with Scada software. This way;
The Champden & Charleywood Validted Steam Sterilizasyon Chambers have all Systems in Place:
This is investment has been made for the steadily increasing demand for more capacity that is required for the future of Steam Sterilisation on a global scale.
With 2 Chambers Capacity has increased;
From 25 tons/day or 8.000 tons/year
To 40 tons/day or 12.500 tons/year
From 45 tons/day or 14.000 tons/year
To 72 tons/day or 22.500 tons/year
The milling operation incorporates 3 dedicated milling systems.
This gives the flexibility to offer value added products that have been passed through the sterile milling process.
Safe Spice Mills will crush, crack and grind a complete range of herbs and spices to any of the food safe specifications.
As with all new developments at Safe Spice the milling operation is designed to provide products that meet the food safety systems and standards required by the Herbs & Spices importing companies in Europe, Scandinavia, Australia, Japan & Far East and now USA plus Canada.
Herbs & Spices are first steam sterilised before they are further processed on the milling system. The milling operation is fully sanitised for sterility and then hygienic conditions are applied during processing.
To ensure complete clean down between milling batches we use the Biotrace system to check for bacteria. In addition to having a fully sanitised system we also do pre and post milling microbiological analysis.
The whole milling environment is fully PLC controlled so that how ever many mills are working at the same time we ensure that there is positive pressure of hepta filter air in the milling hall during operation.
