Direct Steam Injection Heating for the Food & Beverage Processing Industry

The PSX I Series Direct Steam Injection Heater, the ProJet® Inline Industrial, ProJet® Sanitary, PSX J Series Jet Sparger and the ProJet® tank sparger are all used in food and beverage processing applications and deliver consistent, reliable results day after day. The PSX I Series and ProJet® Heaters are used for CIP, blanching, cooking, can topping and pasteurizing. The PSX J Series and ProJet® Jet Sparger heats tank water and is used for steeping and washing fruits and vegetables, and providing hot water for wash down and cleaning. ProSonix equipment offers many benefits including energy savings from efficient steam condensation, tight temperature controls and a self cleaning design.

Vegetable & Potato Blanching

In the Food industry, blanching of vegetables & potatoes is a common practice. Enzymes in vegetables are inactivated by the blanching process. Blanching is the exposure of the vegetables to boiling water or steam for a brief period of time. The vegetable must then be rapidly cooled in ice water to prevent it from cooking. there are a numbers of applications where containers need to be cleaned and pauperized prior to being filled in the packaging process.

Instant Hot Water

Many food processes require varying loads of hot water at a low temperature rise during production, and hot water load can shift significantly higher for nighttime cleaning & sanitizing. The PSX I-Series and ProJet® Inline heater have high turn down capacity for both steam and water flow allowing them to handle load changes eliminating steam cavitation and temperature control issues. Hot water can also be used for can topping, freezer de-icing, bottle pasteurization, and many other hot water needs.

Clean-in-Place (CIP) Water Heating

ProSonix Direct Steam Injection heaters provide accurate, automatic temperature control, ensuring optimum effectiveness water heating, and caustic or chemical solutions. 100% heat transfer also saves energy over conventional heating systems.

Heating Jacketed Kettles

Direct Steam Injection heating of water offers many important advantages over steam for jacketed heating. Jacket water temperature is precisely controlled, allowing water to surround the jacket at an even temperature, eliminating hot spots and the potential for product burn-on. Hot water versus steam also permits a smooth transition form heating to cooling, eliminating hammer and vibration and the potential for shock and damage to the glass lining.
