Milk Concentrate Heater

1. The Challenge

An international client required two large milk concentrate heaters to heat from 4 to 75 degrees Celsius but faced severe space restrictions in their new building. The viscous product and installation requirements posed a dilemma.

2. The Hipex Solution

Hipex designed and manufactured two vertically oriented Mixchanger systems with support stands to maintain tube alignment throughout three levels of a multi-story building. Access to the “working” sections of the heat exchanger (top and bottom) was then minimal as they were located at a safe level for operators. Hipex also used their compact hot water set as the process’s heating medium which effortlessly fitted into the building’s unused space.
