Insights of MicroThermics Development Series UHT/HTST Equipment

Foods with a fresh appearance and long shelf life have grown in popularity and demand with the present generation. Consumers want dairy and plant-based products with high nutritional value, fresh taste, and long shelf lives. Since UHT and HTST thermal processes satisfy these requirements very well, the demand for this equipment is rapidly growing.

MicroThermics Development Series UHT/HTST Processors enable food and beverage companies to take advantage of growing and unexplored opportunities in the market. It is ideal for developing and processing a wide range of products from juices to milk, plant-based beverages, puddings, sauces, and many more efficiently and conveniently right in the food laboratory. Tremendous process flexibility and accurate simulation of commercial processes allow researchers to optimize product formulation and processing conditions very quickly before scaling to production trials. In addition, the time and cost savings resulting from avoiding failed production runs make this equipment an invaluable research tool in every food and beverage R&D center.

How does MicroThermics Development Series UHT/HTST Equipment Work?

Just like in production, MicroThermics Development Series UHT/HTST Processors rapidly heat, hold, and cool fluid products using our proprietary heat exchangers and designs. In addition, our in-line homogenizers generate uniform and stable products. Finally, researchers simulate commercial aseptic fillers by filling samples into pre-sterilized containers within our Ultra Clean-Fill Hood. Together, these items create an easy-to-use, complete processing line that generates production-quality product samples right in your lab.

What Processes Can You Run on MicroThermics Development Series UHT/HTST Processing Lines?

The Development Series UHT/HTST processors can run at a wide range of processing temperatures with in-line homogenizers and our Aseptilab Clean Fill Hoods to accurately simulate production processes. These machines do the work of multiple pilot plants. These processes include:

  • Hot Fill and Hot fill with hold tube
  • Single and two-stage HTST Pasteurization
  • Two-stage UHT Processing
  • High and Low-Acid Aseptic Processing
  • HTST with homogenization (upstream or downstream)
  • UHT with homogenization (upstream or downstream)
  • Continuous Cooking
  • And more!
