Heat exchanger firm expands further into the South American fruit juice market.
HRS Heat Exchangers, a heat transfer specialist for the process industry, has recently supplied San Clemente Foods of Chile a packaged, skid mounted fruit juice processing system.
San Clemente Foods originally came to HRS with an enquiry based on HRS MI food grade corrugated tube heat exchangers, however after lengthy discussions HRS collaborated with the customer and designed a complete and bespoke skid mounted system.
The system supplied included heating, holding and cooling sections all based on food grade MI corrugated tube heat exchangers.
Furthermore, the system supplied is self-contained and also includes a hot water loop, CIP tanks and pumps, valves and a control cabinet.
The new HRS system has a flow rate of 4000 L/Hour and sterilises up to temperatures of <120oC
Francisco Hernandez, the HRS food systems director, said: “We are delighted to have collaborated with San Clemente on an interesting and challenging project, and we see this system as another step forward in the South American fruit juice market for HRS.
“HRS always offers the optimum heat exchanger solution to any heat transfer application and in this instance our corrugated MI range is clearly the best and most efficient option offering a host of advantages over old Plate Heat Exchanger technology.”
