In Line Flow Pasteurizers

Moravek’s AP model flow pasteurizer has been designed for the in-line pasteurization of still beverages with a fruit content of up to 100% and sugar syrup not exceeding 70 Brix.  The temperature of pasteurization is adjustable within the range of 70 to 100 °C.

The AP model has been developed to enable flow pasteurization of beverages directly into a filler or any other suitable equipment. The pasteurizer consists of an efficient plate heat exchanger which is constructed with three independent sections, a main and a booster pump, heating circuit, cooling circuit and a compact valve cluster with two product tanks.  The model is fitted to a base frame which includes the flow distributing plate and electric control panel.

Main features

  • The AP model delivers high quality pasteurization while maintaining an exact temperature as well as flow and time delay control even during an irregular filler run.
  • The fully automatic changeover from water to beverage is designed to ensure minimum loss during any procedure.
  • Energy recovery of up to 92% is made possible through the use of an extremely efficient plate heat exchanger.
  • An indirect hot water circuit can be used to heat the product using steam or electricity if required on request.
  • Hot sterilisation is automatically carried out prior to use.
  • In the event of an emergency or electricity failure the product is stored and hot sterilisation takes place.
  • Products are automatically prevented from accumulating in the tank after a longer break.
  •  Heat exchange plates include positive pressure difference control.
  • Delivery pressure is fully adjustable.
  • An automatic CIP procedure is included with the model without the need for a separate CIP unit.
  •  The Allen-Bradley control system incorporates a 6” TFT display for easy operation.
  • Pasteurization records can be printed.
  • The ability to communicate with syrup room, mixer and filler is fitted as standard.
  • Operator intervention is unnecessary with the exception of the changeover of flowplate and during the initial choice of procedure on the control panel.
  • The AP model is simple to operate and maintain with easily changed fully automatic procedures and minimal moving parts.
  • A different length temperature time delay snake can be fitted on request.
