Washing the fruit
We should filter tomatoes at first to ensure their quality then wash it by Sprinklers to remove any bacterial infection or soak it in huge Tanks, doing initial wash by a clean water, and take the water of the secondary wash with pulling air bubbles to flip water, then move to the secondary wash place by conveyors by splinters, then move it to the filter places, we rotate the water of the secondary wash in tanks to use it in another process after the disposition of dirt.
After washing we do a final rinse above conveyors by clean water, but we use this water in the initial stages of washing another process.
Tomato squeezing process
Tomatoes are heated with an indirect way by water vapor then must be squeezed by a big squeezer till it becomes a juice to be ready to the next step.
Then putting the sauce on a tight Filter for chopping the seeds and peels from it to be pure and soft so we can do the paste after this.
This stage of production is to heat the sauce by a suitable temperature, temperature degree is a very important norm for the quality of paste, as where a high temperature makes the color of sauce brown, so the concentration process must happen under 65°C by barometric capacitors, the sauce must be dried till never contain any water to be a concentrated sauce definitely we can do all of this after adding the salt.
Cooling and heating
After the concentration by heating the sauce, certainly we have an important stage to do, which is the sterilization, to protect any product from damage and pollution we should sterilize it, the paste must be cooled to be purified from any bacteria then heat it up initially as the last stage of product manufacture before packaging.
Filling and bottling
Filling into jars “Sauce is filled hot into the sterilized jars, by piston pump fillers, metal caps are vacuum capped on the jars, allowed to cool down through the cooling tunnel and finally the label is labeled on the jars. making the Sauce jars ready for distribution. Businesses may sell their Sauce to customers directly, or they might sell to retailers.
