Retort Basket Canning Equipment systems are designed to be able to handle filled and sealed cans or jars by placing them into a retort crate for thermo-processing to produce a sterile product. Retort basket canning equipment is either vertical or horizontal with complete controls for providing the quality and consistency required for producing high quality products. Canning retort baskets also provide a spin off system that does not use crates and loads the cans directly into the retort for thermo processing. The cans are then removed from the bottom of this type of retort and unscrambled and orientated for subsequent processing.
