Small Scale (Pilot) Plants for Pasteurization, UHT and Aseptic Bottling
MicroThermics has been the global leader in small scale, UHT/HTST, and aseptic processing for more than 30 years. Its slogan, “Always Innovating,” is the secret behind its success. But besides its equipment, what does this mean to those in food and beverage new product development?
First, MicroThermics’ clients are always innovating. They use MicroThermics systems and Miniature Plant Trials to bring their new products to market faster and more cost-effectively. These systems help products seamlessly transition from R&D to production—saving time and money. At MicroThermics, it is everyone’s responsibility to support their clients’ innovation efforts. They are always innovating to provide the best equipment and services in an ever-changing environment.
• A new “AI” line of processing equipment;
• Extensive new remote, live-streaming video
services (to address issues caused by COVID-19);
• Mail-In Miniature Plant Trials (with optional streaming video);
• An exciting new “virtual online” booth where visitors can come and tour MicroThermics processing lines.
New AI Line of UHT/HTST & Aseptic Processors
MicroThermics’ new “AI” line is highly automated to dramatically simplify operation and eliminate hours of daily “non-processing operation time.”
With the push of a button, this equipment automatically conducts its start-up, SIP, and transition to product processing conditions. Then it notifies the operator that it is ready for product processing. The equipment’s user interface is intuitive and straightforward to use. It provides detailed insights into the process through a variety of available displays, easy to understand alarms and event notifications.
Additionally, custom programming is possible to cater to the user’s needs. When processing is complete, the system’s automated CIP timers assist the operator, and then it conducts its fully automated shut-down with the simple push of a button.
