Pasteurization is the process of heating every particle of a product to destroy pathogens. The heat treatment system to be used depends on the properties of the product and the results to be achieved. Here GEA offers solutions for all the different requirements. Depending on your product and the desired shelf life, you can choose between various methods of heat treatment, like short time heating – high temperature (STHT), high temperature - short time (HTST), or ultra high temperature process (UHT) by means of indirect or direct heating.

We have a wide range of technical solutions to ensure optimized pasteurization without loss of quality as less as possible. For specific industries GEA has developed special systems to ensure microbiological stabilization on a cost and energy efficient way.
