This new worldwide patented method of sealing trays with modified atmosphere (MAP technology) SLB™. – Shelf Life Booster, is the best alternative for the vacuum packaging that was traditionally used in the food industry. It extends product shelf life without using synthetic preservatives or freezing, thus enabling storage and delivery of food products either at room temperature or chilled.
Traditionally, food processors use vacuum packages for their products, even though many food products such as processed meat, fish and ready meals tend to change their texture and appearance in vacuum, which causes the consumers to prefer fresh products instead.
“The ready meals trend fits the hectic life style of the Western consumer. Consumers seek foods that look and feel fresh and now we can help food manufacturers achieve this target easily,” explains Oded Shtemer, CEO of Hefestus. “We anticipate a dramatic increase in demand for our Shelf Life Booster equipment during 2008-2009.”
Hefestus's unique solution combines advantages for the food processors as well as for the consumers. It keeps the food product fresh, tasty and prevents rancidity. Hefestus' sealing machines provide the lowest oxygen levels of 0.5%, or less, for extended shelf life and are easy to operate and maintain.
Hefestus is a developer and manufacturer of top sealing packaging machines. Hefestus specializes in supplying unique and complete packaging solutions for the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. It provides a wide variety of standard and custom-made machines, from manual to fully automatic arrays, to meet the sophisticated packaging requirements of the processors and of the consumers alike.

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
