A better heat exchange

Meadow Foods in Chester has increased production of anhydrous milk fat from 4,000 to 5,000 kg/h following an upgrade of its plant by Tetra Pak Processing.

The anhydrous milk fat is separated from cream and sold on to other dairy, ice cream and chocolate producers and Meadow Foods wanted to achieve a 25% increase in output.

In just 48 hours Tetra Pak engineers managed to replace the old heat exchanger with a new Tetra Plex C8-SR model, together with all the associated pumps, inverters and pipe work. With the new heat exchanger in place, throughput could be increased.

The Tetra Plex C range offers easy handling and modification which means the plates can be replaced or serviced while in the frame. The pasteurisers have high heat transfer abilities and ensure gentle product treatment.
