The Zumex ZF1000 Flash Pasteuriser obtains high quality freshly squeezed juice and a health guarantee, by means of the high pitch plate heat exchanger in two or three stages: regeneration, pasteurising and chilling (optional) for juice from oranges or fruit with a maximum pitch of 10% pulp and with capacity of up to 1000 l/h. The variant with tubular exchanger is offered for high viscosity juices.
It pasteurises and chills in a few seconds, preserving the original flavour, colour, texture and aroma.
It permits adjusting the temperature and pasteurising times according to the required expiry date needs (juice lives of 12-15 days, 18-20 days or 25-30 days) maintaining their fresh and natural juice organoleptic properties as long as the cold chain is maintained below 4º C.
It can incorporate a third exchanger stage to reduce the output temperature to 2-4º C by means of the frozen water generation module.
It has a product pump with hot water and built-in CIP cleaning system, level and temperature probes, product visor and tubes to maintain the treatment temperature.
Flash technology produces a high quality juice, healthily safe and stable, together with high energy saving. The regenerative stage consists in raising the temperature of the intake juice by exchanging it with the already pasteurised juice and this in turn reduces the temperature a few degrees above the intake juice. Thus, the juice maintains the high pasteurisation temperature for the shortest time necessary, instantly reducing its temperature before it is discharged.
Electronic control and recording of all process variables. It has a circular recorder for the pasteurisation temperature, an electronic pasteurisation temperature regulator and electronic juice output temperature indicator. Made of stainless steel.
