HRS Heat Exchangers expands footprint in South-East Asia

HRS Heat Exchangers S.L.U, has supplied thermal processing solutions to a German engineering company for two pasteuriser systems to be installed in a plant in South-East Asia.

One of the pasteuriser modules is designed for fruit juices containing dices, so HRS DTA-series double tube heat exchangers with corrugated inner tubes have been used. The module consists of five sections of heat exchangers and a holding section, and is capable of processing 1.5 – 4.5 m3/h of product, with heating up to 98 °C, and subsequent cooling, with indirect heat recovery to reduce the overall energy requirements of the plant. The heat exchanger selection and holding section configuration permit processing of different products, each with its specific temperature curve and holding time. In the design of the module, great attention has been paid to the pressure profiles on tube and shell side, in order to guarantee that cross-contamination can never occur.

The second module is designed to process 5 – 15 m3/h of fruit juice and milk based products, with heating up to 140 °C, maintaining small temperature difference between the heating media and product. For this purpose customised HRS MI–series tube bundle heat exchangers have been applied. The turbulence enhancing corrugation of the inner tubes not only reduces the area requirement, but also reduces fouling, allowing for longer running times. The holding section is divided into subsections, to allow for different flow rates and holding times, depending on the product to be processed. A system of indirect heat recovery confers the module a limited external heating and cooling demand.

Successful, cost-effective production of fruit juices and dairy products is based on a fragile balance of parameters. On the one hand, it is critical to maintain the quality, flavour and colour associated with the source crop. On the other hand, it is vital to meet health and safety requirements, while keeping energy consumption and production costs to a minimum.

“We have a long standing relationship with the customer, and the chosen solution has been tailor made by HRS in close conjunction with the client’s engineers, in order to meet process requirements, compactness and economical feasibility”, said Tomas Stiebe, Process Engineer, HRS Heat Exchangers, S.L.U.
