The sterilizer-holder-cooler can be made with different heat exchanging technologies depending the product: 4 pipes HTE type, multiple corrugated pipes TIT type, plates type, hight electrical frequency Emmepiemme Ohmic (patented) type or scrape surface type. The advantage of the concentric tubular exchangers is: no parts in motion and product flow in a single tube. This means an easy cleaning, sterilization and operation, with low hygienic and mechanic maintenance needs.
An important characteristic is that the heating hot water, as the cooling cold water, moves in cross flow with regard to the direction in which the product is proceeding, to minimise the product temperature difference. This is the best condition for thermal sensitive products. The microprocessor management system (Plc) has a graphic video interface (touch-screen) with new symbolic management software to make it more user-friendly, and includes an emergency diagnostic system. The machine flexibility is completed by the possibility of integration with degasser, homogeniser or with piston pump for high viscosity products, and finally the possibility to adopt no welded tubes for very high pressure, up to 200 bars, for high viscosity products.
The main components of the sterilizer are:
- Receiving tank with feeding pump;
- C.I.P. System;
- Heating-holding-cooling heat exchanger;
- Aseptic valves manufactured by B.A. Processing;
- Control panel.
- Compact machine with necessity of smaller spaces;
- Pre-assembled and tested in B.A. Processing facility;
- Different heat exchangers depending the product;
- Full electronically controlled;
- Possibility to process all kind of pumpable products.
Using the most advanced computerized solid modelling technical, the design has been optimized ti give to the Customer the maximum personalization freedom in the machine configuration.
