This article reports that Pursuit Dynamics PLC, the British company developing new steam-based fluid processing systems, claimed its technology is well placed to make breakthroughs in a range of industries. Pursuit's PDX technology uses steam to generate a supersonic energy "Shockwave" that it claims can be harnessed to transport or mix material more efficiently than existing alternatives. Highlights of the last year include the adoption of PDX by Welcome Food Ingredients and Coca-Cola Co., and the launch of the PDX Sonic 25 food processing system.
