Reducing down time in food sterilisation processes

 

MARCH 05, 2012/LONDON, UK – HRS Process Technology, the American arm of HRS Heat Exchangers Limited, a leading heat transfer specialist for the process industries, has recently supplied a leading US international manufacturer of processed meat and poultry ingredients with a Unicus hygienic scraped surface heat exchanger for an expansion of the company’s concentrated chicken broth plant. The Unicus heat exchanger is used to sterilise up to 40ltrs/min (10gals/min) of concentrated chicken broth by heating it to 132°C (270°F) using superheated steam at 150°C (305°F).

Because the concentrated broth contains 32% solids with a significant protein content, heating it to 132°C (270°F) presents an almost impossible fouling problem for conventional heat exchangers that rapidly build up a layer of “burned-on” product on the tube wall and so require frequent cleaning. The HRS Unicus design eliminates down time for cleaning by means of hydraulically activated scraper elements inside the inner tube of a shell and tube heat exchanger. These continuously clean the tube surface to maintain good thermal transfer and the reciprocating action of the scraper elements also introduces turbulence that further increases thermal transfer efficiency. The gentle movement of the scrapers allows working with delicate products (such as food products with whole fruit or vegetable pieces) without compromising the mechanical integrity of the product.

The Unicus is a scraped surface heat exchanger for high fouling and viscous fluid applications. It has specially designed and developed to offer a solution for those difficult heat transfer applications where very viscous fluids are used or fouling appears. The design is based on a traditional shell and tube heat exchanger with scraping elements inside each interior tube.

Carlos Cobian, General Manager, HRS Heat Exchangers, HRS Americas explained, “The scraped surface design of the Unicus allows the process to run for very long periods without down time and, because the reciprocating action is quite slow and the product tends to lubricate it, wear and resulting consumption of spare parts is minimal”.
