Abstract

High pressure processing (HPP) is one of the most effective and efficient preservation methods in the food industry due to its ability to prepare fresh, hygienic food. The goal of this project is to reduce the stress concentration that arises in the contact area between the lever and lever guide in a particular HPP vessel. Various finite element analyses were performed in order to develop an effective solution that will decrease the stress concentration in this area.
