The tomato paste pasteurizer is an ideal equipment for liquid processing. It uses a tube heat exchanger to indirectly heat the tomato paste. Its technical performance is comparable to imported similar advanced equipment. It is suitable for milk, tomato paste, fruit juice, Instant ultra-high temperature sterilization and pasteurization of liquid materials such as coffee beverages, margarine, ice cream, beverages, liquid medicines, etc., and can also be used for liquids with high viscosity and large fibers and particles.
The tomato sauce can achieve the purpose of sterilization and cooling through the processing of this equipment, and can well maintain the original nutrients, color and flavor of the tomato sauce. Equipped with aseptic filling equipment can make the product shelf life up to 1-12 months or more.
Aseptic vat filling machine
The ketchup aseptic vat filling equipment automatically completes the whole process of weight measurement, opening, filling, and sealing under aseptic conditions. Since the filling process is carried out in a sealed filling room, there is no pollution. It is especially suitable for ketchup and other industries that require ultra-purification and aseptic filling.
Aseptic bag packaging is a major leap in the preservation and preservation of tomato sauce. Its most prominent feature is that it can maintain the original flavor of tomato sauce (because it does not require secondary sterilization). At the same time, it also has the characteristics of convenient storage, convenient transportation, no need for refrigeration, and long shelf life. Therefore, it is adopted by more and more enterprises.
