Tetra Pak Preparation system B-EXT is a complete island solution for final syrup and beverage preparation.
Its flexible modular design is built for easy upgradability as product needs evolve and to lead the market in reducing product losses and minimising waste, water and energy consumption.
From batches of 2,000-4,000 litres/hour to high-speed continuous production of 70,000 litres/hour
Can produce any beverage – juices, nectars, still drinks, soft drinks, energy drinks, syrups, and plant-based, functional and dairy drinks
Radial Jet Mixer S/T
Our radial jet mixer uses the liquid’s own turbulence to mix itself – product mixes product. The absence of mechanical force avoids friction and heat generation, ensuring homogenous mixing at higher efficiency. Mixing is also much faster than conventional mechanical mixers. The radial jet mixer can mix any syrup or beverage of up to 200 cP in viscosity.
The patented horizontal injector in our radial jet mixer has a unique geometry that avoids product splashes and shapes the liquid stream to envelop dry powder immediately on entry. This prevents product from settling and clumping in the injector. The injector introduces dry powder at the point of highest turbulence to ensure immediate hydration, further contributing to a fully homogeneous product.
Pre-mix recirculation loop with booster pump
It may be advantageous to dissolve ingredients independently from the main batch, for instance to avoid unwanted reactions. A pre-mix recirculation loop allows this without requiring a separate pre-mix vessel. The loop, powered by a booster pump, independently recirculates over the feeding hopper without interfering with the main mixing tanks. This allows preparation of small batches by simply using the feeding hopper as a vessel.
