HT220 series Lab UHT/HTST System

Highly automated sterilizer starting at 20L/h

Flexible, modular, future-proof

The HT220 system is highly versatile. It allows you to run a trial with a less than three liters of product, minimizing the amount of ingredient that is required, as well as the time required for preparation, set-up and processing. Moreover, the HT220 Lab UHT/HTST System helps improve R&D activity by allowing you to conduct a greater number of trials over the course of the day.

The HT220 series offers different levels of automation and configuration. The available heat treatment modules include the tubular heat exchanger, plate heat exchanger, scraped surface heat exchanger (SSHE).

When looking to replicate the industrial processes for heat-sensitive and other complex applications such as milk-replacement products, desserts, and creams, the HT220 series offers a steam injection module variation, called HT220DSI. Food developers find HT220DSI very user friendly as well as versatile because it allows them to process products with indirect heat treatment or by injecting them with steam.

The HT220 systems, can be integrated with an inline homogenizer and an inline deaerator. With the HT220 series, you can configure a pilot line with downstream equipment, including buffer tanks, fermentation tanks, and hygienic or aseptic fillers.

Our HT220 is available with a nominal capacity of 20L/h or 50L/h.

HT220 Direct Steam Injection (DSI)

The direct steam injection (DSI) version of the HT220 includes all the HT220 system features, with the addition of a direct steam injection module. This unit allows you to process products with indirect heat treatment, or to inject steam and to flash-cool the product to reduce the heat level. This is especially useful when looking to replicate the industrial processes for heat-sensitive and other complex applications as milk-replacement products, desserts and creams.


The HT220 system is supplied with either one or two boilers, for the preheat and main heat systems and two cooling sections. It comes with a tubular heat exchanger as standard, though it can also be supplied with a plate heat exchanger. The system can be connected to other equipment to build an indirect heat treatment pilot line.

HT223 Standalone Direct Steam Injection

The HT223 is a standalone direct steam injection (DSI) system that can be installed in combination with an existing HT220 unit. This unit enables you to add the direct steam injection functionality to your indirect heat treatment system.
