Unilever install Tetra Pak line.

A line for pasteurising ice cream mix has been supplied and commissioned at Unilever UK by Tetra Pak Processing.

The new line consists of a Tetra Plex C10 ice cream pasteuriser, a Tetra Alex 400 homogeniser and a number of associated pumps and valves. It will carry out pasteurisation duties on a full range of ice cream mixes and, in addition, is expected to undertake pasteurisation on the new, higher viscosity ice cream mixes for the lower fat products.

The Tetra Plex C10 is at the centre of the process. This high quality plate heat exchanger has been configured after extensive product testing on-site. An extra benefit is that it is easy to service with easily replaceable clip-on gaskets and a design that allows maintenance to take place with the plates hanging in the frame.

Also important to the operation is the Tetra Alex 400 homogeniser. This can be configured fur up to 400 bar operating pressure. It is particularly notable for its reliable operation and low speed of operation due to its five pistons, which reduces wear and provides longer life on the valves. The HD homogenisation device at the heart of the unit minimises energy consumption and the efficient oil temperature control system ensures minimum water consumption.
