APV Seamless Infusion Vessel
SPX FLOW’s APV brand has released the Seamless Infusion Vessel to help UHT (ultra-high temperature) infusion systems have longer running times, less product waste and more yield.
Dairy, plant-based and beverage producers often struggle with product fouling or build-up during UHT processing. The vessel is designed to help and, in turn, increase efficiency and system performance.
UHT infusion systems process many products, including dairy (milk, cream and ice cream), plant-based beverages (soy, oat and almond drinks) and specialised nutrition foods (liquid meals, protein drinks and infant formula).
Instead of the traditional clamp connection, the seamless connection links the vessel bottom and pump housing in UHT infusion systems without a sealing gasket and is designed to have better water-cooling on the pump casing and impeller. This results in no product build-up and decreased product loss. With less fouling, there are fewer stoppages for CIP (cleaning-in-place).
Systems have been shown to have 20% longer running time using the Seamless Infusion Vessel. That’s an estimated 100 additional production hours and approximately 1.3 million more litres of milk produced yearly for a 12,000 L/h plant.
In a plant that can produce 12,000 L/h, this can mean 30 fewer CIP cycles per year, which can help to lower product waste, energy, water and detergent consumption.
