Milk-based Drinks

Sterilization of milk-based drinks

Sterilized milk-based drinks, such as coffee and tea in cans, represent a particular challenge for sterilization technology. The application is technically straight-forward however the industry requires extremely high production levels, often in excess of 1,000 cans per minute, which can only be achieved economically using the most sophisticated sterilization and handling technology. Our new SRC rotary retort is ideal for this application. Using a combination of both fixed and rotating water jets the SRC achieves extremely fast, uniform heat penetration that significant reduces the overall sterilisation time thereby allowing the production levels to be maintained. Safe Sterilization Management (SSM) keeps you in control and provides full track and trace capabilities to conform to all international requirements. 

Keeping the sterilization time as short as possible, while ensuring that every part of every can has received the necessary heat treatment, is a fundamental part of the process. Keeping the processing time short preserves the look and taste of the product and helps you to meet the demands of your high-throughput production schedules. 

Using our experience we have the ability to choose the right technology and to balance the key elements of temperature, time, pressure and dynamics to ensure these objectives are met in full. By minimising the processing time, while ensuring the necessary heat penetration to every part of every can, you can not only produce a first class product but also meet your commercial objectives by improving productivity, reducing the use of power and raw materials, meeting your environmental obligations and keeping one step ahead of the competition.
