PV - Pasteurizer Standard

Pasteurizer performing a steam jet to reduce the bacterial presence in treated products.

A belt brings the product inside the treatment chamber and two ramps, above and below the belt, distribute the steam with jet system across the entire surface which is going to be treated.

Some vapor hoods placed on the sides of the covering panel extract the steam and they remove it when exiting from the treatment chambers.

Internal structure of the treatment chamber with circular sections to block product stagnation and ease the washing phase.  

The top panel is isolated with stone-wool and it is openable, allowing for easy access to the inside of the pasteurizer.

Bottom panel to collect condensed water and drain it externally.

The steam jet is controlled through a modulating valve inside the pasteurizing chamber.

The machine features external hoods integrated in the panel for the extraction of exceeding steam and a belt in modular plastic.

The key features of the PV are enabled by its progressive ramps for steam jetting, the independent control of the top and bottomramps and by the laminar flow extraction hood.

Compared to the other pasteurizers on the market, the PV register a steam waste reduced by 50%, ensuring a steam jet of 0.5 kg steam/kg.

Machine completely washable, thanks to its stainless-steel structure.

Machine performance: 

  • Belt usable width: 750-1500-2000 mm;
  • Pasteurizing chamber length: 3-25 m

Pasteurizer performing a steam jet to reduce the bacterial presence in the treated products

A conveying belt brings the product inside the treatment chamber and two ramps, above and below the conveying belt, distribute the steam with jet system across the entire surface which is going to be treated.

Some vapor hoods placed on the sides of the covering panel extract the steam and they remove it when exiting from the treatment chambers.

Internal structure of the treatment chamber with circular sections to block product stagnation and ease the washing phase.  

The top panel is isolated with stone-wool and it is openable, allowing for easy access to the inside of the pasteurizer.

Bottom closing inclined tank to collect condensed water and drain it externally.

The Pasteurizer’s high efficiency is given by its structural components, which include:

  • Compact treatment chamber;
  • Irradiating plate on the whole pasteurizing surface;
  • Front and back ramps with independent control;
  • Extracting hood laminar flow;
  • Bottom isolating tank with stone-wool.

These components allow to reach a steam jet emission of 0.27 kg steam/kg, meaning a 50% steam saving compared to a standard Pasteurizer and a striking 75% with respect to the other pasteurizers in the market.

With the same pasteurizing surface, the High Efficiency model registers a 30% increase in production capacity compared to the Standard one.

The machine is entirely washable, thanks to its stainless-steel structure. Easy access is given by a level opening system, which widen the space between panel and the irradiating plate and it lifts the belt from the sliding surface. 

An optional jet steaming combined with hot water can be added, in order to have the product precooked. 

Machine performance:

  • Belt usable width: 750-1500-2000 mm 
  •  Pasteurizing chamber length: 5-25 m
