Features

Agitators

Maintain homogeneity of sedimentation-sensitive products

Tetra Pak® Aseptic Tank VD can be fitted with different types of agitators that stir the product continuously to ensure a homogenous consistency. Producers can choose between top-mounted agitators placed in the middle (or off centre) of the tank's interior, or magnetic agitators placed at the bottom.

Low fouling end valve cluster

Prevents burnt particles entering the product

An end valve cluster prevents fouling in the pipes and so safeguards product taste and consistency, especially with ESL products. The longer the product runs, the greater the risk of fouling and, therefore, the more vital this feature is.

Overpressure with sterile air

Stops contamination from outside the tank

Thanks to sterile air over-pressure in the tank, no external substances can enter and contaminate the product.

Independent cleaning

Increases line efficiency

The combination of an intermediate steam barrier (ISB) and high volume tank (optional) means you can clean the Tetra Pak® Aseptic Tank VD tank separately from the UHT unit. When the tank is filled, the processing unit can be cleaned and prepared for a new production run, thus eliminating the need to stop the line.

Operator control panel

Increases efficiency, safety and traceability

A user-friendly touch screen panel shows operators what is happening in the unit. It can be connected to the production control system, Tetra PlantMaster™ for an overall line view. This feature gives full production monitoring capabilities as well as access to historic data.

Safety rail and ladder

Increase workplace safety

A frame built around the ladder ensures the safety of operators climbing up the side of large tanks. An additional circular safety rail prevents accidents when operators are working on top of the tank.

Options

Extended Shelf Life

When making products with an extended shelf life, Tetra Pak® Aseptic Tank VD can be fitted with a continuous circular configuration. This enables products to continue to circulate under refrigerated conditions in the event of an unplanned stoppage. Thanks to constant temperature control, the risk of bacterial growth is eliminated, and product quality is preserved between processing and packaging.
