A plate-and-frame configuration employs special plates, with alternate product and heating channels. The plates are sealed by gaskets located within specially designed slots that do not require adhesives. These gaskets can be inserted and removed without special tools.
Plate heat exchanger and separator.
Product and heating media are transferred in counterflow through their relevant passages. Defined plate distances in conjunction with special plate shapes generate strong turbulence, resulting in optimum heat transfer.
Intensive heat transfer causes the product to boil while the vapor formed drives the residual liquid, as a rising film, into the vapor duct of the plate package. Residual liquid and vapors are separated in the downstream centrifugal separator. The wide inlet duct and the upward movement ensure optimum distribution over the total cross-section of the heat exchanger.
Concentrated food products need to be sterilized before they can be stored, packed or dried.
Availability for laboratory and pilot plant testing for different kind of evaporator systems.
Vertical shell-and-tube heat exchanger, with a laterally or concentrically arranged centrifugal separator.
Horizontal or vertical shell-and-tube heat exchanger or plate heat exchanger as the calandria, with flash vessel/separator arranged above the calandria, circulation pump.
Vertical shell-and-tube heat exchanger of short tube length, with lateral separator arranged at the top.
