HRS Heat Exchangers, Booth 3010, Expo Pack Guadalajara 2019

HRS Heat Exchangers will showcase their range of aseptic fillers and sanitary stainless steel heat exchangers which are purpose-designed for the most demanding food and drink applications at booth 3010 at Expo Pack Guadalajara 2019 (Jalisco, Mexico, June 11-13). In addition, HRS will demonstrate real life examples of how these units can be combined with bespoke elements to provide clients with complete turnkey solutions for processes including pasteurisation, cooling, filling and many more.

Having the best equipment available is vital if food and beverage producers are to thrive in an increasingly competitive marketplace. Consequently, HRS heat exchangers use stainless steel in their construction to provide the highest standards of cleanliness, operating efficiency and product life. The benefits of using this robust material far outweigh the cost savings which might be gained from cheaper materials. For example, stainless steel heat exchangers are resistant to corrosion and staining, which also makes them more resistant to fouling. This helps to maintain thermal efficiency and reduces the amount of time spent cleaning and servicing the units, reducing operating costs, and longer operational life.

When taken together, the combined benefits of stainless steel construction and HRS corrugated tube design are significant,” says Matt Hale, International Sales and Marketing Director at HRS Heat Exchangers. “The design and materials work together to create heat exchangers which are not only highly efficient in terms of performance and energy use, but which have lower operational costs and a long operational life. Taken together, this makes HRS heat exchangers the best value heat exchange solution.

HRS will also showcase their Asepticblock and new Asepticblock Mini; packaged pasteuriser/sterilisers which combine thermal treatment and aseptic filling in a convenient skid-mounted unit with a single control panel. Suitable for a wide range of applications such as fruit and vegetable juices, purees, concentrates, pulps and prepared products, they can also be used with cooking sauces, tomato pastes, concentrates and delicate products, including those which contain fruit pieces or whole fruits.

Every HRS heat exchanger is designed specifically for the end use application. As a result, HRS Heat Exchangers are well placed to delivery turnkey solutions for food and beverage producers, such as a recently installed unit to pasteurise and cold-fill marinade for a leading US food manufacturer. “The amount of time and effort our engineers and designers put into each project means that even if you specify a heat exchanger from one of our standard ranges, you are effectively buying a bespoke unit rather than off the shelf – and will benefit from the superior performance and cost savings that this delivers,” adds Matt.
