Tetra Pak® Processing introduces new integrity detection service

13 October 2015

Tetra Pak® Processing has introduced an advanced gas-based leak detection service for an extensive range of heat exchangers.

Benefits of using the new service include a reduced risk of sterility issues on the production line as the smallest cracks can be identified before problems arise.

The process also reduces the time needed to carry out tests, so there is less down time compared to conventional liquid based testing methods. There is no risk of residual liquid contamination and no need to clean the heat exchanger after the test as the gas used is inert.

The test is relatively inexpensive and offers excellent accuracy across a wide range of heat exchanger installations including models produced by Tetra Pak®, Alfa Laval and other manufacturers. 

After each integrity test, Tetra Pak will provide an Integrity Test Certificate. If needed, spare parts for the company’s current portfolio of Tetra Pak/Alfa Laval heat exchangers are available from central stock with short delivery times.

Axel Eyers, Tetra Pak® Technical Sales and Service Market Area Leader said: “In addition to providing this cost effective new service we can draw on years of expertise to perform audits, recalculations and optimisation for all heat exchangers and whole heat treatment installations. Last, but by no means least, clients will have the peace of mind of using Tetra Pak for testing, repair and optimisation.”
