The reliable method for Beverage Pasteurization

Beverage Pasteurization

Manually operated pasteurizer - Depending on the application and the volume, small and expensive pasteurizers are often required. Here too, we are able to offer you a technically and financially sound concept.

Pasteurization of beverages in bottles and cans is biologically safe but tends to adversely affect the color and the taste of the product following too long and excessive heat applied to the product. In addition, pasteurization in tunnel pasteurizers requires a lot of space and energy.

The ideal combination between high quality standards and bacteriological safe design are plate heat exchanger (PHE) pasteurizers which guarantee the specific shelf life quality of your product. In comparison with tunnel pasteurization and hot filling, investment and operating costs as well as floor space are considerably reduced.

Benefits

  • Low investment and operating costs
  • Small floor space required
  • Capacity adjusted to the filler
  • No over pasteurization
  • Process conform to PU specifications
  • Continuous operation minimizes product losses
  • Pasteurizing effect verifiable online

PU control

In case of a filler stop the buffer tank is supplied at reduced flow rate in order to increase the buffering capacity.

Rapid and accurate temperature control prevents over pasteurization. In addition, the system capacity is adjusted automatically to filler rate changes. Also in case of extreme flow rate fluctuations, the pasteurizing units are precisely controlled to at least 1 PU. This is the more remarkable as a change in temperature of 0.1° C only, causes a deviation of 1 PU.
