Raw fruit and vegetable juices are high in nutritive value but at the same time very sensitive with high possibility of bacterial contamination, making it risky for consumption. They have very less shelf life, which restricts the consumer from being able to store and enjoy the drink for a prolonged period of time. Pasteurization is one of the most popularly applied method for processing of fruit juices, fruit based juices. Fresh juices are active ground for live pathogens, which multiply fast when not contained with proper processing. Pasteurised juices become safe for consumption with reduced risk of infection. It also makes the juice last longer in good condition as the growth of microogranisms is eliminated. The pasteurization process destroys pathogenic microorganisms by heating the product to a specific high temperature for a brief period and cool down to desired temperature as required for the end packaging. The most common fruits and vegetables processed through pasteurization or aseptic processing are: mango, orange, guava, pomegranate, apples, pineapples, tomatoes and others.

HRS has the expertise in thermal process technology and is well known for providing systems for pasteurization, aseptic processing and turnkey processing lines for fruit pulp, juices and beverages. HRS has a range of pasteurization systems designed for various types of juices. These systems enable continuous processing of juices. They are custom-design to suit capacity ranging from 2000 LPH up to 40,000 LPH depending on customer requirement. Juice pasteurizers from HRS are skid mounted integrated with ECOFLUX* MI series corrugated tube heat exchangers which can be customized according to the process requirement. The ECOFLUX* Corrugated Tube Heat Exchanger (CTHE) MI Series is the key thermal processing equipment in the juice pasteurization process. Corrugated tubes make it possible to achieve uniform product heating and maintaining natural aroma and taste of the final product. Turbulence created at the tube surface due to corrugated pattern results in minimal fouling in the system. The high heat transfer coefficient and negligible product fouling on the tube surface allows for continuous processing, longer running time and minimal maintenance requirements.  It is also used for applications like pre-heating, heating, cooling, chilling processes as part of the overall plant set-up. In many plants, these pasteurizers have an integrated Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) System to ensure complete automated cleaning of the entire pasteurizer without dismantling in a series of circulation of water and prescribed food grade safe cleaning fluids.

HRS juice pasteurizer also consists of , Stainless steel balance tank with level controllers, flow and temperature Controllers, Modulating valve, Sanitary flow diversion valve, Centrifugal type feed/ transfer pump, Holding coil to heat the product at desired temperature.  HRS offers juice pasteurizers which can configured in , Hot fill for PET, Cold Fill for carbonated fizzy drinks, Aseptic brick filling packaging Industry is working towards meeting the growing demand of fruit juices and HRS is playing a key role in providing the right technology for it. Our team is agile to ensure the quality requirements required for our customers and the end consumers are met with utmost care, safety and the best to taste!
