Used Food Processing Retorts

Retorts are production sterilizer machines that thoroughly clean food containers and packaged food products prone to microbial spoilage. Through retorts, food products are packed and sealed in a pouch or a metal can and then heated to high temperatures, sterilizing the products and keeping these safe for consumption.

Some retort types include continuous, batch, or end-over-end sterilizers. These food retort systems are used in processing facilities for meats, fruits and vegetables, poultry, canning, and other applications.

Regal Equipment offers used and reconditioned food processing retort equipment from manufacturers including WSF Industries, FMC, and Satori Stocktec. To learn more about a specific food processing retort, click on the product name below.
