Steam and water spray technologies

ADVANTAGES OF THE STEAM WATER SPRAY TECHNOLOGY

  • Direct steam injection in combination with superheated top and side spray ensure good heat distribution and safe process repeatability with minimum cleaning.
  • Retort pressure is controlled by compressed air injection and with high accuracy within the recipe settings to ensure perfect container integrity.
  • Water spray provides fast and even cooling. The water may come from a cooling tower or water chiller and it may be reclaimed for reuse.
  • The amount of water in the vessel is small and is recirculated via a filter before reaching the spray nozzles. The flow is controlled by means of a flowmeter and the level via level control instruments. The water may remain in the vessel for consecutive cycles.
