A seafood processor required hot water supply for aseptic pasteurization of artificial crab product. The product, sealed in plastic bags, passed through a three-stage belt pasteurizer, the first stage requiring hot water held at 205º F, heated by internal steam coils. The packets then go through two chilling sections before refrigeration and boxing.
A heating system was required to heat the cold make-up water supplied to the system as water is lost through evaporation, spills and carryover. Maintaining a minimum pasteurization temperature was critical to the process.
Pick Model 6X10-3 Constant Flow Steam Injection Heater, cast iron construction with threaded fittings. The Pick system provides accurate temperature control and quickly reaches set point as soon as make-up water is called for.
Features and Benefits:
• Precise Temperature Control
• Instantaneous Supply of Hot Water
• Ease of Installation on Existing System
