Alfa Laval introduces the TS6 plate heat exchanger, which offers a more efficient solution to this water heating process over former shell and tube HE technology. The key TS advantages over shell and tubes are flexibility, small footprint, quick response time, and expandability/serviceability. The small footprint can reduce hot water set package size by over 50%, reducing skid costs and saving valuable plant floor space.

The Feldmeier UHT system can be used for Ultra Pasteurization and ESL of milk, tea, juices and beverages. The products are heated by regeneration and hot water up to 285°F, and cooled by regeneration and further cooled, if necessary, to 35°F with ice water, glycol, Freon or ammonia. Regeneration for milk and fruit juices is in excess of 90%. All product contact surfaces are type 316L stainless steel and all gaskets are Teflon. Patents are now pending on this UHT system which can attain an extremely high thermal efficiency while keeping the flavor of milk comparable to any commercial UHT milk.

Since 1984, Bimetalix has served the food processing industry with uncompromising quality, offering a complete line of scraped surface heat exchanger cylinders - stainless, nickel and the patented Titan Trimetallic. Bimetalix also offers a refurbishing service to take worn-out chrome plated cylinders and remanufacture them to like-new condition.
Waukesha Cherry-Burrell says its homogenizer is among the most efficient in the industry, and offers the smallest footprint, delivering more output for its plant space than any other. Advanced, fluid-dynamically engineered homogenizing valves achieve the desired degree of dispersion/emulsion with lower pressures, requiring less energy and extending the life of moving parts. Features include a sanitary overpressure relief device; non-adjustable plunger seal with double seals standard (single seals optional); modular valve assemblies (single or double stage, manual or hydraulic); headblocks with hardened replaceable valve seats; and multiple plunger sizes for each model.
The Tetra Plex line of heat exchangers from Tetra Pak are specifically designed to pasteurize, heat, and cool, liquid foods. The Tetra Plex C15 was recently introduced as the largest hygienic plate heat exchanger on the market. All Tetra Plex units offer many features that will optimize production, improve reliability, and reduce maintenance costs, such as glueless gaskets, high pressure frames, and improved heat transfer efficiencies.

The Tetra Alex line of homogenizers from Tetra Pak offer capacities from 15 gph to 12,100 gph for beverage and dairy products. They operate at pressures of up to to 5,800 psi, and utilize fully reversible seats and forcers which further improves the operational economy. An easily accessible machine casing means less time is needed for routine maintenance, and valves, seats, and pistons are removable with hand tools. HD100 homogenizing device is designed to maximize efficiency and parts lifetimes. The machines also operate at low sound level, and are totally enclosed for safe operation.

AGC Engineering’s Sanitary Proflow Series of plate heat exchangers are specifically designed for dairy applications. Features include an expanded port area, inlet design, metal-to-metal alignment and fully drained leak detect to improve flow and performance characteristics. The Proflow plate design allows processing of heavy viscosity products at high production flow rates without the damaging effects of high pressure. Different frames are available including tie-bolt, twin spindle manual closure and also hydraulic (automatic) closure.

The Admix LiquiShear provides the processing power of a bottom-entry high-speed blender with an optional integrated powder induction system to feed powders, solids and semi-solids into the blender. On its own, the basic Admix LiquiShear blending module uses a low-maintenance double mechanical seal, a removable manway dump grid, a combination filter and vent, and a CIP spray ball.
A complete line of Plate Heat Exchangers is available from Chester-Jensen. Frames are available in solid stainless steel or coated carbon steel. Both metal-to-metal and gasket supported plate designs available in either type 304 or 316 stainless steel and appropriate quantity and thickness of plate sized for individual duty. Custom engineering is standard with all units. Single-piece gaskets, molded from a variety of formulated elastomers are selected to best meet application requirements. Gaskets are bonded to plates for trouble-free service, yet are easily replaced, in the field. Standard six-bolt type closure with optional mechanical spindle or hydraulic assist closures available. Differential operating pressures to 150 PSIG. Computer designed configurations allow users to process single, dual or multiple fluids and/or duties simultaneously.
Scherping Systems in-line, single pass heat exchangers are crafted using T304 stainless steel tube sheets, tubes, outer shells and reducing adapters. They are available in standard sizes or manufactured to meet your specific heat transfer capacity and space requiements. The heat exchangers include steam inlet, condensate outlet and vacuum break connections as required. Scherping Systems stocked, standard CIP heat exchangers have concentric and eccentric reducing adapters, reducing solution inlet and outlet ports with required tri-clamp connections. The reducing adapters assure proper drainage of horizontally mounted units.

The Twin Panda homogenizer is a tabletop homogenizer from Niro Soavi designed for laboratory/pilot use. The Twin Panda is designed to homogenize samples at pressures up to 8,700 psi. The internal design has special features permitting the homogenizer to handle feeds at high viscosity up to 20,000 cP and at temperatures up to 90°C (194°F) without a feeding pump. The Twin Panda 600 homogenizer is easy to commission and operate. It can easily be dismantled for maintenance and cleaning by the laboratory operator. Homogenization conditions can be optimized and the results used in scale-up to industrial operations.

The Mueller Accu-Therm plate heat exchanger is a compact heat exchanger consisting of embossed heat transfer plates with perimeter gaskets to contain pressure and control the flow of each medium. The gasketed plates are assembled in a pack, mounted on upper and lower guide rails, and compressed between two end frames with compression bolts.

Waukesha Cherry-Burrell’s Votator II Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger offers food processors the flexibility of vertical or horizontal mounting. The vertical units feature Votator II’s hydraulic lifting system that automates the raising and lowering of the heat exchanger shafts. Regular cleaning and inspection of the blades and cylinders takes less time. Boltless V-lock heads allow for removal of the shaft for inspection or routine maintenance. The Votator™ II is available in two jacket designs: brine/water/steam and refrigeration with a new integral accumulator option.
APV’s new R5 Quad-Drive plate heat exchanger, accepting over 1000 plates, includes many unique features that save the customer time and effort while extending the plate’s life. The Quad-Drive is the only PHE to incorporate a PLC, which automatically controls closing and opening. Press ‘close’ on the display and the machine evenly compresses the plate pack to pitch. Traditionally, two or three people and a tape measure were required for this task, which could result in plate damage or leakage. Tie bar placement allows unimpeded access to every plate and with simultaneous rotation the follower remains parallel to the head.
