HRS Heat Exchangers will demonstrate at PACK EXPO Las Vegas, NV (Sept 23-25, 2019) how its 40 years’ experience in the food and drink sector has enabled it to develop complete turnkey solutions alongside its core range of heat exchangers for processes such as pasteurization, sterilization, concentration, cooling and waste management.

As well as a full range of corrugated tube and scraped surface heat exchangers suitable for a multitude of products including simple drinks, juices, dairy products, sauces and even processed meat, fruit and vegetables, HRS offers a comprehensive range of pumps, aseptic fillers and complete systems for pasteurization, evaporation and even product trials.

Matt Hale, International Sales & Marketing Director at HRS Heat Exchangers, comments, “There aren’t many specialist challenges in the food sector that we haven’t been asked to provide a solution for over the last 40 years. From evaporation systems for brine and dairy products, through to systems to concentrate fruit pulp, pasteurize juice or cool marinades, we have installed solutions across the world, from mango processing in India to barbecue sauce in the United States.”

This experience means that the HRS global team is always looking to improve its range of products based on experience and sometimes special requests. In the last few years this has seen the introduction of new versions of its BP Series of sanitary reciprocating positive-displacement pumps. As well as the standard BP Series, HRS now offers tailored solutions for different types of product, as well as a skid-mounted mobile version which can be used across multiple production lines or locations.

As food manufacturers are under increased pressure to develop new and innovative products, HRS has recognized a need for flexibility with the development of the Asepticblock Mini Series. A small, self-contained and portable aseptic filling solution for short run products and trials, it sits alongside the full-size AF Series of aseptic fillers.

Due to both financial and environmental considerations there is also an increased focus on reducing waste at all stages of the food chain and the HRS Product Recovery System – which measures a product’s physical or chemical property (such as Brix, pH, viscosity, or density) and automatically alters how it is treated if a reading falls outside specified parameters – has been specifically developed to meet this need.

Matt Hale adds: “Our engineering and design teams are always working to improve our product offering and they love a challenge. We recently supplied a system to cool and pack a meat marinade and incorporated several bespoke requests from the client into our solution, which they have been extremely happy with.”
