The new Terlotherm vertical scraped surface heat exchanger’s unique design allows this versatile piece of processing equipment to handle various applications, such as cooking, heating, cooling, crystallization, pasteurization and sterilization. The Terlotherm’s main advantages are its vertical design for small but maintenance-friendly footprint space; only one shaft seal unit contains five times more heat exchange area than conventional equipment. Other features include a hinged top cover for inspection and cleaning without disturbing the shaft seal, one-piece scraper blades can be replaced without tools, low operating and maintenance costs and the unit can process the most sensitive or complex products or particulates with minimal damage. The clean-in-place unit is also bottom driven to eliminate the possibility of any product contamination.
Specializing in scaling up/down aseptic, pasteurization and continuous cooking processes, MicroThermics offers lab equipment using indirect heating with tubular or plate heat exchangers, steam injection, vacuum cooling, microwave heating, in-line homogenization, ultra-clean filling and more. MicroThermics makes production quality samples in your lab of your milk, soymilk, juices, puddings and more. Get your products to market faster for less money by bringing the process into your lab with MicroThermics’ technology instead of using production, pilot or other processing equipment.
The Boston Shearmill from Admix provides high shear rates and tip speeds for maximum droplet and particle size reduction. If a process requires milling of soft particles to under one micron or hard particles down to one to two microns, the Boston Shearmill meets this criteria, often with just a single pass. Shearmill models are available from 15 to 125 Hp, providing throughput from 5 to 250 gallons depending upon feed rate and viscosity. All Shearmill models feature the exclusive single mechanical quench seal, rated for 700 psi and complying with 3-A standards.
SPX Flow Technology’s APV 110T homogenizer is a three-plunger, reciprocating pump fitted with homogenizing valve specifically designed for the product. The 110T incorporates a durable slow-speed power end in a low and compact design and incorporates plate heat exchangers for precise temperature control and efficient use of water. Double-sized oil filters for improved oil life, internal gearing and self-adjusting belt tightening reduce maintenance. One point of operator control and direct visibility to all internal and external indicators, combined with easy access to all service areas, saves time and money by simplifying inspection and reducing maintenance to a minimum. The new, more modular and flexible design of the 110T makes it suitable for a wide range of pump and homogenizing applications.

Waukesha Cherry-Burrell’s Votator II’s scraped surface heat exchanger offers food processors the flexibility of vertical or horizontal mounting. The vertical units feature SPX’s WCB-branded 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. After servicing or inspection, the Votator II reassembles quickly. The Votator II is available in brine/water/steam and refrigeration designs. Meanwhile, Gerstenberg Schröder’s Perfector 150 is a compact machine designed exclusively for the chilling of semi-liquid fillings such as shortening and soft table margarine. This SPX scraped surface heat exchanger provides reliable performance, minimal downtime and easy maintenance and is the heart of any crystallization line; it is said to be robust, reliable and built to last. The Perfector is equipped with a drop tank to prevent freezing up and comes with ordinary sanitary seals. APV’s NR5 super hygienic plate heat exchanger was developed to provide outstanding performance and value. It is the successor to the classic R5 series, which has been the industry standard since 1964. The NR5 can provide up to a 20% increase in processing capacity in the same R5 frame. The NR5 is made of 0.6 mm 316 stainless steel, and the plate design is unique. Classic diagonal flow with naturally superior distribution means an increase in the heat transfer area. The NR5 plate is supported by a range of PHE’s, including sanitary tie bar machines and the recently introduced Quad-Drive series 2.
