During pasteurisation, the liquid is subjected to short-term heating to temperatures above 60 and below 100°C, and then quickly cooled. The main problem in this process is how to destroy microorganisms without losing the taste of beer. The "boiled" drink, like the one that has fermented quickly, will be returned to the manufacturer's warehouse.
Any return of beer leads to losses:
- reputational - a decrease in consumer and partner confidence;
- commercial - losses from sales, fines for low-quality products;
- legal - claims for breach of contract, as well as claims from sanitary and regulatory authorities.
Gentle pasteurisation of a product has many nuances. The owner of a production facility wants to get equipment for pasteurisation that will ensure consistent quality of the beverage without a noticeable increase in cost.
The chief engineer expects the pasteuriser to be reliable and energy efficient. For a quality specialist, microbiological safety and the taste of the product after heat treatment are of paramount importance.
For a process engineer, the performance and adaptability of the equipment are important. He needs an industrial pasteuriser that meets the existing needs of the line and can be adapted to new recipes or production volumes.
All the problems and motives of production workers can be reduced to one question: "What model of equipment should I buy?".
