Buying a heat exchanger is seldom an 'off the peg' purchase. It should always be a solution configured specifically for your production line and its requirements.
The number of units and their size will depend on five main variables: the type of product, the type of process, the amount you produce, energy consumption and production runtime.
To create the right design, rheology data for your product is vital. Product viscosity changes during heat treatment, requiring different combinations of heat exchangers. Tetra Pak engineers often combine different machine types together with different design solutions, depending on how fluid changes with temperature and flow.
Our advanced and validated technical design tools, combined with data from our unique 8000 product database, helps to inform the process and ensures optimum performance can be achieved.
Meadow Foods Fresh Division at Peterborough has benefitted from Tetra Pak's approach as Factory Manager Nigel Haines explained:
“We have worked closely with Tetra Pak to adapt an existing plant so it can produce custard products. The key to this was understanding the rheology of the product and how it reacts in the final cooling process. Tetra Pak’s thorough knowledge of the products and their equipment enabled Meadow Foods to meet our customer's needs from the outset."
Successful development of premium-quality stick ice cream containing larger inclusions was just one of the topics addressed by our team at the recent Ice Cream Expo, Harrogate.
Using larger inclusions presents a number of challenges, not least in achieving uniform distribution and attractive appearance while avoiding waste. Conventional methods of cutting the product tend to 'push' the particles, affecting the appearance and causing the ice creams to be misaligned, resulting in increased waste further down the line.
Our project team was therefore tasked with developing a commercial solution. After exploring several options - including ultrasonic cutting - they settled on a vertical rotating wheel. This approach can handle large ingredients such as apricots of 40 mm diameter and output is similar to conventional extrusion lines.
