HT Heat treatment

HTST and UHT heat treatment test with a minimum of product

Heat treatment relies on microbial and enzyme inactivation to help extend the shelf life of certain food and drink products and to ensure food safety. However, this process can damage the organoleptic properties of the product. Understanding why this happens from the early stages of formulation, and what the impact will be, can shorten time to market. However, these investigations can prove expensive and highly time-consuming.

Our range of heat treatment systems allows for in-container pasteurization, inline pasteurization and sterilization and batch cooking of a wide variety of liquid products, starting with a minimum batch size of one liter. Depending on the viscosity of your product and the process you wish to replicate, we can provide you with a variety of different heat exchangers (specified below) and methods, including HTST and UHT. Our heat treatment systems have a capacity range of between 10L/h and 1,000L/h.
