Heat exchanger offers greater energy efficiency

09 April 2017

The efficient running of processing lines is key to a food manufacturing business.  Tetra Pak can offer a tubular heat exchanger with product-to-product (P2P) heat regeneration which helps to improve energy efficiency. 

The system employs a design which maintains heating using fewer tubes. Using the P2P exchanger costs significantly less than product-to-water (P2W) models and offers up to 50% improved energy efficiency through lower steam and cooling water consumption, says the company. “The P2P heat exchanger is also easy to open for visual inspection after cleaning in place (CIP), which allows efficient cleaning while lowering the use of detergents and water,” said Petter Berg, manager Commercial Product Management at Tetra Pak.

“Data is becoming increasingly crucial for efficiencies and we have a technical design program called ‘Quantum’, specially developed for Tetra Pak tube heat exchangers, which calculates all parts of the product life cycle: energy consumption, investment cost and spare parts. This calculation, taking into consideration customer specific requirements, can accurately predict energy consumption and savings to ensure optimal energy usage. 

One Tetra Pak customer running an orange juice pasteurizer for 6,000 hours a year reduced its energy bill by 36% – an annual operational saving of approx. €70,000.”
