Maintaining the Comfort Factor
16th June 2011
Tetra Pak CPS, the leading UK food processing equipment manufacturer, has successfully designed, manufactured and installed a customised pasteurisation unit for Axellus A/S, a major supplier of health supplements in the Nordic region.
Tetra Pak CPS supplies a wide range of food processing equipment, specialising in bespoke systems and when Axellus required a high performance pasteurisation unit to produce a range of natural health drinks, it turned to the Tetra Pak CPS team at Sherborne in Dorset.
Axellus needed a system with consistently high quality output and the flexibility to process different products. In practice this meant the pasteuriser needed to accommodate a range of holding times and the control also had to be sufficiently flexible to manage the various cleaning-in-place (CIP) demands this placed on the whole unit.
An integrated skid unit was manufactured in the Sherborne factory, based around a well proven, highly efficient Tetra Plex plate pasteuriser. A customised software program was also created by Tetra Pak CPS to manage all the control functions.
The complete system was fully tested in the factory before being shipped to Axellus’ production plant at Ishøj in Denmark for commissioning by Tetra Pak.
Tony Emm, Tetra Pak CPS Project Engineer said:
“Axellus had a clear set of requirements and we were able to provide the precise solution to meet those needs. I think a major part of our appeal was our track record in developing bespoke systems to match the customer’s demands. Axellus is already a leader in its market and this system will enable it to become involved in producing a wider range of natural health products, comfortable in the knowledge that quality and performance can be maintained.”
