Allpax Supplies Hard To Find Parts For Vertical Saturated Steam and Water Immersion Retorts

Jun 07, 2011

Covington, LA - Allpax Products, a division of ProMach and a market leader in retort technology and retort room automation, announced today an expansion of its capabilities to supply hard to find and replace parts for vertical retorts. Allpax typically supplies custom ordered ASME certified parts within four weeks.

This Allpax service is designed to give companies utilizing vertical retorts greater assurance for continued productivity and safe operations through ASME certified parts manufactured by retort experts. Customers most commonly ask Allpax to supply wing nut type lugs, lid gaskets, baskets, and basket handles. Allpax maintains drawings of each customer's parts and delivery on reordered parts is fast and effective.

Beginning last year with state-of-the-art control system hardware and software, Allpax developed a specialized focus supporting vertical saturated steam and water immersion operations. Control systems were followed by comprehensive and integrated support programs for increased safety, energy savings, and now assured supply of hard to find and replace parts.

"We work with customers to improve the efficiency, sustainability, and longevity of vertical saturated steam and water immersion operations," said Greg Jacob, vice president and general manager, Allpax. "Then when it makes sense for customers, we partner with them to cost effectively manage the migration to new or refurbished retort vessels and current technology control systems."

Jacob said that due to new FDA reporting mandates Allpax is receiving an increasing number of calls from older canneries about the cost effectiveness and process for upgrading to new control hardware and software.
