Pursuit Dynamics has signed an agreement with the UK subsidiary of
Coca-Cola Enterprises to supply innovative fluid processing
technology for the production of soft drinks.

Coca-Cola Enterprises is the world's largest marketer, manufacturer and bottler of the brands from The Coca-Cola Company. The company is responsible for the manufacturing and distribution of 'Coca-Cola' products in Great Britain, supplying around 240 million cases every year.

This is the first installation of the PDX 25 in the soft drinks sector, though Pursuit Dynamics claims that the technology is already delivering dramatic process efficiency and quality improvements to the liquid foods industry.

According to the company, it is capable of cutting cooking times by up to 95 per cent and cleaning time by up to 80 per cent. And it has been shown by one leading manufacturer of prepared food to produce a twenty-fold decrease in process times for mixing, blending and cooking of sauces, soups, stocks and chutneys.

The patented PDX system simultaneously heats, mixes and pumps. It can be used to transport fluids with high solids content, entrain different materials, heat ingredients or blend recipes. Furthermore, with no moving parts to clog or block, PDX is CIP compatible and offers the potential for significantly reduced cleaning times compared with conventional processing equipment.

Pursuit Dynamics​ has developed the PDX technology over the past four years at a cost in excess of £6.5 million. The company is based in Royston, Hertfordshire, UK with a sales office in Connecticut, USA. The Company owns 100% of the intellectual property rights of the PDX(r) technology.The rollout of the company's liquid food processor, the PDX Sonic 25, takes place in January 2005.
