Simulation and its role in improving your product quality

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a powerful computer tool for simulating flows in processing equipment. Used in the design of mixers, it can ultimately help food producers improve the quality of their products.

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

The white paper available for download at the link below 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 to foresee the flow fields of the system and to forecast which design changes would make the greatest contribution to improving performance.

Combining its thorough knowledge of food industry processes and broad experience of CFD for a variety of applications, Tetra Pak is able to offer customers improved performance guarantees for mixers.

Mixing for a smooth, homogenous product​s

Mixing, a common operation in food processing, aims to efficiently achieve a smooth, homogenous product with consistent quality. Food processors, and consumers, insist on a perfect product every time. To achieve this, food processors must stay in complete control of every aspect of their production from beginning to end
