High-temperature short-time (HTST) pasteurization, or flash pasteurization, is commonly utilized in food and beverage industries. Products are heated and held at a specific temperature and time, followed by quick cooling to ensure complete destruction of contained pathogenic microorganisms. Compared to batch pasteurization, HTST system offers advantages of lower utility costs and higher continuous throughput. Use of regenerative heating and cooling in heat exchangers can further increase operational efficiency.
Clean-in-place (CIP) is a procedure by which process lines, tanks and equipment are sanitized without any disassembly. We will specify, design and fabricate CIP systems tailored to your needs, whether it be manual or fully automated. Single tank or multi-tank CIP Systems are available including temperature control and detergent injection capabilities, and can be built for efficient reuse of water, chemicals and energy.
The Liquefier is specially designed for products with low to medium viscosity in order to obtain a fast mixing of powders and particles with liquids. It is a square shaped tank with a bottom mounted high-speed impeller which creates turbulence and high shear forces ensuring effective and homogeneous mixing. This equipment is usable for dissolving, dispersion, emulsifying, blending and mixing of products.
The sanitary tanks used for processing materials typically are made of stainless steel, and are fully jacketed and insulated with agitators for efficient heating / cooling. Tank bottoms are usually angled for complete drainage of the products and may have Clean in Place capability. Processing tanks can be customized to capacities from 100 to 5,000 liters and equipped with a variety of agitators for low speed to high-shear mixing depending on product viscosity.
A processing operation will undoubtedly utilize some combination of storage tanks between the receipt of raw materials and downstream packaging systems. We design and provide vertical & horizontal hold tanks and storage tanks. Standard storage tanks are available with cone, dished or sloped bottom heads depending on product viscosity, ranging in size from 200 to 5,000 liters.
