Tetra Pak introduces advanced mixing and blending

Related tags: Tetra pak, Introduction

A new high-shear in-qline mixer and in-line blender have been introduced for dairy processors by Tetra Pak.

The mixer is said to raise ingredient mixing performance, while the blender improves consistency and ensures product quality. Both pieces of kit are claimed to cut operating costs.

The R370-1000D mixer features a new design that produces finer, more consistent and more stable emulsions. It reduces the need for downstream homogenisation, delivers a better quality end product and cuts energy bills, says Tetra Pak.

Crucial to its design is its built-in deaerating system, a flexible powder introduction system and a newly-designed mixing head. This allows the machine to handle product viscosities of up to 2,000 centipoise and break the size of the droplets to one micron (0.001 mm).

At the heart of Tetra Pak’s In-line Blender D is an automation system that continuously collects data and controls the precision of blending. The blender handles a wide range of ingredients and can be customised for a variety of recipes.
