​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​White paper:​ Optimize your mixing process and food quality by using CFD

CFD, computational fluid dynamics, is a powerful computer tool for simulating flows in processing equipment

​Most applications in the food industry include mixing. In order to achieve the desired product quality, the whole volume of product should be optimally mixed, and the mixer should not impact the fluids in ways that might jeopardize the final result.

This white paper shows how Tetra Pak applies CFD in the design of mixers for highly viscous fluids such as tomato paste, cream cheese and hummus. Tetra Pak uses this method regularly to foresee the flow fields of the system and to forecast which design changes would make the greatest contribution to improving performance. Combining our thorough knowledge of food industry processes and broad experience of CFD for a variety of applications, Tetra Pak is able to offer improved performance guarantees for mixers to customers.​​
