Tetra Pak High Shear Mixer R370-1000D
Tetra Pak has launched its next-generation high-shear inline mixer, offering high ingredient-mixing performance. Featuring a design that produces fine, consistent and stable emulsions, the R370-1000D reduces the need for downstream homogenisation and delivers a better quality end product, according to the company.
The mixer features the integration of a built-in deaerating system, a flexible powder introduction system and a redesigned mixing head. This allows the machine to handle high viscosities at up to 2,000 cP and break the size of the droplets to 1 µm, significantly smaller than the industry average of 7 µm.
The output of a finer, more consistent and more stable emulsion reduces the need for downstream homogenisation, a highly energy-intensive step in food processing. This means that it is now possible to eliminate the homogenisation step altogether in the production of certain types of ice-creams, cutting energy consumption by up to 50% in the overall process. The mixer can also handle ingredients with up to 65% dry matter — the highest concentration for infant formula production — cutting down the need for evaporation.
The mixing machine produces at a capacity of up to 30,000 L/h and can be applied in the production of liquid dairy and beverages, ice-cream and prepared food, as well as for most pre-mixing needs in food manufacturing.
