Tetra Therm Aseptic Visco high-pressure food-processing unit

Wednesday, 03 March, 2010 | Supplied by: Tetra Pak Marketing Pty Ltd


The Tetra Therm Aseptic Visco unit can be used for high-viscous and particulate products. It is a continuous food-processing unit that enables efficient high-capacity UHT treatment for high-viscous soups and sauces, tomato pastes, custard desserts, fruit preparations, vegetable purees and baby food products. The unit can run up to 18,000 L/h.

The Tetra Vertico high-pressure-rated coil tubular heat exchanger handles pressures up to 350 bar and enables higher in-pipe velocity and lower system volumes, thus requiring fewer litres to fill up the system, resulting in smaller mix zones (product/water), shorter changeover times and faster start-up.

Lower system volumes are claimed to reduce product losses by up to 50% compared to conventional equipment used for processing high-viscous and particulate foods, which reduces costs associated with lost raw material, waste handling and utilities. The technology reduces fouling in the system as the product is less likely to stick to surfaces and burn, reducing cleaning time and enabling longer running hours.

Lower product losses and cleaning volumes result in reduced waste, simplifying waste handling and lowering environmental impact compared to conventional equipment used for processing high-viscous and particulate foods.

The higher pressure in the new unit also makes it less sensitive to variations in product viscosity than conventional equipment, which enables food producers to run the full range of viscous products at higher capacities than previously possible in the same unit, for greater production flexibility.

The Tetra Therm Aseptic Visco unit’s design maximises food safety with the fewest possible welds and easy-to-clean surfaces. Its automation gives production control and full traceability, while reducing downtime and the risk of human error.
