Pasteuriser with indirect energy recovery for juice and concentrates
For a flowrate of 7.500 litres/hour of juices, both fruit juice and tomato juice, it entails a significant energy saving with a reduced pay back time of the equipment.
In addition, this pasteuriser is also designed for the processing of fruit concentrates at a flowrate of 1.500 kg/hour.
Pasteurization to eliminate the presence of micro-organisms and extend the product shelf life, or cooling for aseptically filling are some representative examples of the typical processes to be carried out by our corrugated tube heat exchangers for fruit juices and beverages.
SACOME corrugated tube heat exchangers are customised to handle a wide range of products from low viscosities (as fruit juices) up to high viscosities (as orange concentrate 65⁰ Brix).
Specifically, SACOME applied its Sanitary Multitube Heat Exchanger S-TFM-I with corrugated tubes.
The greatest advantage of the corrugation in our shell and tube heat exchangers is increasing fluid turbulence when flowing through the inner tube, which means that turbulent flow can take place even with a low Reynolds number.
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.
To design a heat exchanger it is necessary to have certain data, such as the process flow rate, the temperature and the physical properties of products.
Hairpin heat exchangers have a more efficient and economical design compared to a multiple pass heat exchanger when the process requires a temperature crossing between the cold and hot fluid.
