One of the most important cheese producers worldwide (with a portfolio of brands of sliced cheese, spreads, fresh and creamy cheeses) has commissioned SACOME to design and manufacturing a custom-designed condenser with very particular characteristics.
Our client needed to replace an equipment installed in their facilities. The new condenser is intended for the condensation of aromas and vapours under vacuum conditions. The condenser had to fit into the tight floor space (just over 1 meter) and provide a higher heat exchange power. On the other hand, our client had different service fluids (cold water at 8ºC and water tower at 20ºC). The client wanted to take advantage of both service fluids to minimize energy consumption.
In order to solve the problem raised, our Technical Department evaluated different alternatives and finally manufactured a double condenser — a condenser with a single tube channel (hygienic channel, capable of being cleaned with a CIP solution) and two independent service channels in the same heat exchanger (our S-TFM-I heat exchanger). This posed some challenges when it came to manufacturing and assembling the equipment. However, and according to our main values as a company, we design and manufacturing a custom solutions to meet our client’s needs.

The importance of rheology in the design of any processing plant is crucial since the sizing of many of the elements composing it is very dependent on this “resistance”, also taking special relevance with food products: heat exchangers, pipes, valves, pumps, mixers, etc.
