A processing unit for highly efficient, continuous ultra-high temperature treatment of prepared food products. The unit is of aseptic design, and uses a Tetra Pak® Tubular Heat Exchanger for indirect heating to obtain a product that can be stored at ambient temperatures.
Continuous aseptic processing unit for indirect UHT treatment
2,000 – 20,000 l/h depending on the product. Others on request
Soups, sauces, desserts, fruit preparations, tomato products, baby food and other low or high viscous products with or without particles
Flexible hardware configuration
Carefully selected, tested and proven components make it easy to expand and upgrade your system to meet future capacity and production needs. There are also solutions for both your current and your future product portfolios, since the design enables you to process products – aseptic/non-aseptic or smooth/particulate – with a wide range of viscosities.
Optimized heat treatment
All components are carefully selected for tough operating conditions. Cleaning programmes are designed to assure food safety and optimized production efficiency, and enable you to create unique settings for caustic/alkali, high/low temperature, concentration and circulation time. Advanced automation reduces the chance of human error and enables full traceability.
Our user-friendly PLC-based control gives you full control over recipes and parameters and enables you to make the most of your production plant. You get a good return on your investment, thanks to minimal opportunities for human error, consistent quality, high throughput and lower costs. Take control a step further with our Tetra Pak® PlantMaster supervisory system for control rooms, giving you the convenience of flowchart overviews, product routing/selection, advanced data logging, automated reporting, full traceability and easy preventive maintenance.
Automated and optimized emptying and filling
Due to automation, the emptying and filling functions are very precise. A control system measures the concentration of product to water much more accurately than is possible with manual operation. The reduction in product waste, and consequent cost savings are dramatic. We’ve calculated that producers can save between €17,000 – 35,000 per year – assuming four product changes at a revenue of €1/litre product.
