SACOME has designed and manufactured a pasteurizer for a pilot plant intended for the processing of different dairy products. The pilot plant is located in Portugal. The French engineering company — with which we have collaborated in this project — requested us to design a pasteurizer with a high percentage of energy recovery. In addition, the versatility of this pasteurizer — in terms of the type of product — was a key point. Therefore, the pasteurizer is capable of processing different flow rates of dairy products — ranging from 100 kg/h to 400 kg/h — with very different rheological properties, for example skim milk or whey.
The pasteurizer heats the product from 10 °C to 140 °C and subsequently lowers it again to 20 °C. All this with energy recovery of more than 65%.
Due to the risk of burns — since the pasteurizer works at very high temperatures — a completely closed frame has been manufactured including removable doors with 40 mm mineral wool insulation.
Pasteurizer with a high percentage of energy recovery and great versatility.
Heat exchanger technical documentation
Our study of “New mathematical models applied to heat exchangers” has been recognized as a “Research and Development Project”.
Heat Exchangers for loops of Purified Water (PW) and Water for Injection (WFI) in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
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.
