Heat Exchangers help control fluid temperatures in food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing for pasteurization, sterilization, clean-in-place and other hygienic operations. In this post, we discuss how three types of heat exchangers work:
The purpose of heat exchangers is to transfer heat between two or more fluids to regulate temperatures during food, beverage, and pharmaceutical processing.
- Food and Beverage Industry: heat exchangers make products safe for consumption and extend shelf life by preventing growth of harmful microbes.
- Milk processing: heat exchangers pasteurize milk by raising milk temperatures.
- Pharmaceutical processing: ingredients in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals must be mixed at specific temperatures to ensure safe use and product quality.
Heat exchangers vary according to the attributes of the processed fluids, such as viscosity, particle size, temperature, and flow.
