Soft Drink Pasteuriser

PROBLEM

A client required a juice drink pasteuriser which was capable of operating at high pressures and flow rates.

SOLUTION

Hipex designed and manufactured a system which combined both tubular and plate heat exchangers.  Tubes were used for high temperature heating while the plate heat exchanger was used for heat recovery and cooling.  The system was designed to run up to 50,000 litres per hour at high discharge pressure as it fed a carbonator.  Simultaneously, it was capable of handling the small particles which may be contained in the fruit drink.
