Västerås, Sweden, November 10, 2022 – The installation of a next-generation, scalable High Pressure Processing (HPP) press from Quintus Technologies will boost capacity by roughly 75 percent for Natur+l XTD, the first HPP tolling operation established in Canada more than a decade ago. The purchase confirms the partnership between Natur+l XTD and Quintus, the originator of HPP technology.
Material densification is a critical process for many manufacturing and materials processing applications. By using high-pressure techniques, materials such as metals, ceramics, and composites can be compressed to higher densities, resulting in increased mechanical properties and performance.
Quintus Technologies’ High Pressure Processing (HPP) is a natural, scientifically validated technology for food processing. HPP delivers food safety benefits, extends shelf-life, and maintains flavor, freshness, and nutrients. HPP uses ultra-high pressures instead of high temperatures and preservatives to inactivate foodborne pathogens, reduce waste, and deliver natural and nutritious.
