UHT milk

Today's consumers are more safety conscious than ever, and when it comes to UHT (Ultra-Heat Treatment) milk, there is no room for error – the whole process has to be sterile. As the inventors of aseptic technology, we offer the highest level of hygienic design – our solutions are proven to be the most reliable on the market. These ensure you get the highest possible safety standards and cost-efficient production for both bulk and premium products.

What is UHT treatment?

Ultra High Temperature or Ultra Heat Treatment is used for the sterilization of low acid foods. UHT treatment involves heating the product to over 135 °C. It destroys all microorganisms, making the end product suitable for ambient distribution.

Processing lines for UHT white milk

Best-practice lines

Direct UHT line

For premium or formulated products, we offer this direct UHT system. A low heat load means the end product has less of a ‘cooked flavour’.

Indirect UHT line

Designed for high operational efficiency, the Indirect UHT line incorporates our effective, durable tubular heat exchangers. Optimized processes extend your running times between cleaning (CIP and sterilisation). And thanks to a shortened mix phase, the line also reduces product losses.

UHT treatment for dairy products​

In UHT treatment, the goal is to maximise the destruction of microorganisms while minimising the chemical changes in the product. That means finding the optimal combination of temperature and processing time for different types of food.
