For thermal solutions for viscous food the ViscoLine range is a series of highly efficient heat exchangers that have been designed to handle your food processes in the gentlest manner.
Beverages and viscous food, as well as other products, often either have high viscosity or contain particles of many different kinds. In such cases, tubular heat exchangers are often the most practical solution for heating or cooling the product.
Alfa Laval ViscoLine™ is a range of highly efficient tubular heat exchanger types that incorporates corrugated tubes or other advanced profiles designed to increase turbulence in the flow of the media to be cooled. This substantially increases the overall heat transfer coefficient.
ViscoLine Annular Unit
Annular models are used at higher viscosity levels where it is necessary to apply heat to the product from both the inside and the outside at the same time, in order to prevent layering. In this tube-in-tube-in-tube model, the product flows between the inner and middle tube.
ViscoLine CIP Unit
The CIP Unit is ideal for hot water and heating cleaning liquids. Products can contain fibres & small particulates.
ViscoLine Monotube Unit
Monotube installations are most frequently used for heat-treating products that contain large particles or have a high pulp or fibre content. The Monotube heat exchanger consists of a single tube mounted inside an outer shell.
ViscoLine Multitube Unit
The ViscoLine Multitube Unit is one of the most widely used thermal solution for viscous food. An ideal unit for heating, cooling and pasteurizing products with low and average viscosity, and products that contain fibres and small particulates.
