The Tetra Pak Homogenizer 500 can produce up to 63,600 litres per hour at the low operational cost.
The machine features Tetra Pak’s HD EnergyIQ, a homogenizing device that uses six gaps, rather than one, enabling it to operate at pressures around 20% lower than standard machines, while delivering the same quality end product. The result is a significant reduction in energy consumption, and considerably reduced costs.
The food processing and packaging solutions company said the lower operating pressure means lower wear and, coupled with a design that allows easy service access, the Tetra Pak Homogenizer 500 offers the highest uptime for customers in the market.
All aseptic Tetra Pak homogenizers are said to use 80% less cooling water and 70% less steam compared to many alternative brands.
The new homogenizer was launched in partnership with Chinese food company YinLu. Wu Zhong Ping, general manager of Yinlu’s plant in Anhui, said: “Our peanut milk is a best seller in the market and is gaining popularity among young consumers. The opportunity to use the Tetra Pak Homogenizer 500 came at a time when we were looking for efficient ways to expand production and capture market growth. The machine delivers exactly what we want: it does the job of two machines with increased production and reduced operational costs, and there is no compromise on the product quality.”
Anders Karlsson, technical director, Tetra Pak Group, said: “Launching the world’s largest capacity homogenizer means that our customers can achieve significant economies of scale, producing more for a lower cost per litre. This is vital for dairy and beverage producers seeking to meet growing consumer demand.”
