Retort shuttle

Strong cooperation with Steriflow, Steritech, Surdry, Lagarde and more

Retort shuttle with unique tongue solution

Our retort shuttle can load and unload your retorts by an extending “tongue”


that lifts the carriers and moves them inside the retort. In contrast to shuttles that use (rotating) chains for the transport of stacks, our shuttle and the retorts requires significantly less maintenance. That is because the tongue ensures that no moving parts are needed in the retort. And you benefit, because parts that are constantly functioning in a harsh environment wear out much faster and therefore require more maintenance.

Smooth connection
Our retort shuttle connect smoothly with our handling systems for pouches, cans, jars and bottles and semi-rigid containers.

Compatibility: Steriflow, Steritech, Surdry and Lagarde retorts

Our shuttle is compatible with all suppliers of retorts,


like Steriflow, Steritech, Surdry and Lagarde. Including diameters and lengths.

How it works?

We use a slide to dock the retort and bridge the gap at the door. This includes a system for an accurate alignment and a chain conveyor to transfer your product carriers on and off the shuttle. A moveable tongue takes care of the loading and unloading. Above all: an integrated control interface guarantees 100% effective product sterilisation.
