Improve safety with advanced leak detection

Tetra Pak® Processing has introduced an advanced gas-based leak detection service for an extensive range of heat exchangers.

Benefits of using the new service include a reduced risk of sterility issues on the production line as the smallest cracks can be identified before problems arise.

The process also reduces the time needed to carry out tests, so there is less down time compared to conventional liquid based testing methods. There is no risk of residual liquid contamination and no need to clean the heat exchanger after the test as the gas used is inert.

The test is relatively inexpensive and offers excellent accuracy across a wide range of heat exchanger installations including models produced by Tetra Pak®, Alfa Laval and other manufacturers.

After each integrity test, Tetra Pak will provide an Integrity Test Certificate. If needed, spare parts for the company’s current portfolio of Tetra Pak/Alfa Laval heat exchangers are available from central stock with short delivery times.

Axel Eyers, Tetra Pak® Technical Sales and Service Market Area Leader said:

“In addition to providing this cost effective new service we can draw on years of expertise to perform audits, recalculations and optimisation for all heat exchangers and whole heat treatment installations. Last, but by no means least, clients will have the peace of mind of using Tetra Pak for testing, repair and optimisation.”

Benefits of better separation

The benefits of separation are sometimes overlooked.  Effective separation can improve milk, cheese and even iced tea quality. To get the best out of your separator hygiene is imperative and there are three essentials for effective cleaning.

Firstly, use the right settings for discharge size and interval during production. Secondly, make sure deposits are discharged properly during CIP and thirdly, use the right chemicals at the correct concentration for the recommended time. Water quality can also have a significant bearing on long term separator efficiency.
