Juice pasteurization machine is used to sterilize the fruit juice with high heat. The sterilization process is carried out before juice filling and packing, and after juice extraction, filtration and concentrate. Generally, there are 3 types of sterilizer in fruit juice production process, plate pasteurizer, tubular pasteurizer and steam sterilizer.
Plate pasteurizer adopts UHT (Ultra Heat Treated) technology. The pasteurization is carried out under the temperature of 135℃-140℃ for 3-5s. The short time protects the drinks from nutrition or flavor loss. The sterilization capacity is 1 -10t/h.
Plate pasteurizer integrates the function of preheating, sterilization, heat preservation and cooling. It applies to fruit juice and concentrates with without high fiber or high viscosity. Thanks to short heating time, it applies to thermal sensitive products. What’s more, it is suitable for milks, tea drinks, beverages and other fluid materials.
Plate pasteurizer features high heat-recovery efficiency, and automatic temperature control system. It has compact structure and pretty appearance.
Plate pasteurizer is a new-generation fluid material sterilization equipment. It adopts advanced BR, BP plate heat exchanger. By non-contact heat exchange with superheated steam or water, the fluid materials are heated up to a sterilizing temperature within a short time.
The pasteurization process is under high-precision temperature control system. When the cold drinks are filled into the heat exchanger, they receive heat from the sterilized hot drinks. Then, they will be heated up to around 120℃ by superheated steam and water. Next, they will be kept in the constant warm tube for UHT sterilization. When they come out from the constant warm tube, they transfer heat to the incoming cold drinks, and cool down in the cooling part before they reach the outlet.
The whole process is taken under closed condition so that the biological property is stable. It can be specially designed to adapt to different materials’ demand for heating, preservation and sterilization.
