UHT System

Advanced Design

The system depicted is a 15,000-litre-per-hour variable-speed tubular UHT plant. It incorporates a heat recovery system via a loop of sterile water.

This unit, designed and manufactured by Hipex, operates at pressures of up to 60 bar, allowing for the placement of a remote, downstream aseptic homogenising valve.

The entire system is controlled through using the most advanced industrial automation available.

Features include:


Sterilisation using pressurised water, which requires less energy


Corrugated tubes to increase heat transfer efficiency and reduce thermal stresses


An aseptic homogeniser with pressure controls that operate automatically
