Fristam's new FKL 15 displacement pump offersa displacement of 0.016 gal/rev. while the new FKL 20 offers 0.032 gal/rev. These new models feature a split-style gearbox for easier maintenance. Both feature CIP ability with no performance loss. Additionally, the oil bath gearboxes on both models use no bearing grease and require oil change-out only every 4,000 hours. The FKL 15 and FKL 20 are manufactured of 316L stainless steel, with the exception of their non-galling stainless steel rotors. With these additions, Fristam now offers nine high-performance FKL models.

The Tetra Plex line from TetraPak gives processors accessto a wide range of compact plate heat exchangers that are especially designed for pasteurizing and other kinds of heating and cooling of liquid foods. The units offer a proven, reliable, hygienic and compact design, and durable construction. All Tetra Plex models have very high heat transfer abilities. This means that you can minimize temperature differences between product and service medium. You get gentle treatment of your product while simultaneously minimizing the risk of fouling. The excellent press depth with relatively few contact points yields longer running times and the possibility to use thicker long life gaskets. The plates' patented distribution pattern assures a smooth flow, which also makes CIP easier. It is simple to disassemble Tetra Plex units for inspection. The glueless gaskets can be replaced quickly and easily on site, with the plates hanging in the frames. All frames offer great flexibility for expanding and rebuilding the plate heat exchangers.

The new Tetra Alex 350 from Tetra Pakis a new homogenizer for beverage and dairy products. The Alex 350 follows the same proven design concept as the Tetra Alex 400 machine introduced a few years ago. It offers an impressive capacity range, handling flow rates up to 9000 gph and pressures up to 5800 psi. This machine can be designed to meet your processing needs as either a high pressure pump or a homogenizer. The machine is a 5-piston positive displacement pump using a solid pump block. It includes a wet end, containing only the components with product contact, and drive end which are separated by a stainless steel wall. Tetra Alex 350 is equipped with the energy efficient HD100 homogenization device. This device is designed to offer considerable improvements in homogenization efficiency when compared to a conventional device. It utilizes fully reversible seats and forcers which further improves the operational economy.
