When you choose Therma-Stat for your ESL/Aseptic processing line, you’ll benefit from standard design features that are options on competitive systems. Our complete package includes:
A) Raw product from the system balance tank undergoes regeneration heating versus ultra-pasteurized product exiting the flash chamber in a plate heat exchanger (PHE).
B) Raw product exiting the PHE is metered by a legal timing pump through the heater section of the PHE and discharged into the culinary steam injector.
C) Culinary steam is injected directly into the product stream to produce the desired holding temperature prior to routing through the legal holding tube.
D) Product exits the holding tube into a flash chamber where the controlled vacuum environment instantly reduces the product temperature and removes the product vapor that was added as culinary steam.
E) Product exiting the flash chamber is routed through an aseptic homogenizer en route to the ultra-pasteurized side of the PHE, where it undergoes regeneration cooling.
F) Ultra-pasteurized product exiting the regenerator undergoes final cooling versus glycol prior to routing past the legal flow diversion device (FDD) en route to the final product destination.
