A complete skid mounted fruit juice thermal processing system

30 June 2014

HRS Heat Exchangers Limited, a leading heat transfer specialist for the process industry, has recently supplied San Clemente Foods of Chile a packaged, skid mounted fruit juice processing system.

San Clemente Foods originally came to HRS with an enquiry based on HRS MI food grade corrugated tube heat exchangers, however after lengthy discussions HRS collaborated with the customer and designed a complete and bespoke skid mounted system.

The system supplied included Heating, Holding and Cooling sections all based on food grade MI corrugated tube heat exchangers, the system supplied is self contained and also includes a hot water loop, CIP tanks and pumps, Valves and a control cabinet.

The HRS MI system was installed to sterilise Apple and various fruit juices concentrate prior an existing aseptic filler system. The new HRS system has a flow rate of 4000 L/Hour and sterlises up to temperatures of <120oC.

Commenting on the collaboration with customer, Francisco Hernandez the HRS food systems director said, “We are delighted to have collaborated with San Clemente on an interesting and challenging project, and we see this system as another step forward in the South American fruit juice market for HRS”.

“HRS always offers the optimum heat exchanger solution to any heat transfer application and in this instance our corrugated MI range is clearly the best and most efficient option offering a host of advantages over old Plate Heat Exchanger technology.
