Steriflow Rotary Cascading Water
His stainless steel drum enables a product rotation. His particularly resilient mechanical design continued to evolve since the deposit of the 2nd patent in 1991 with a triangulated structure drum even more reliable. The strength of this drum has been widely tried, it is capable of supporting heavy packaging such as cans and jars. With Rotary Steriflow there will be nothing broken, no production shutdowns due to a weak manufacturing that can’t bear excessive weight. This retort has been specifically studied and designed to meet the needs of our customers regardless of the type of packaging used, lightest to heaviest.
Maximum capacity of 6 baskets.
Technical specifications :
• 1300 mm, corresponding to maximum size of manually operable basket (476 cans 4/4) and a capacity from 1 to 12 baskets.
• 900 mm,
• 1,600 mm, from 1 to 6 baskets.
• 1,800 mm, 4 and 5 baskets.\
Power: Rotary Steriflow has a powerful pump shortening cycles which become more homogeneous. All products inside the retort get treated the same at any operating position. Shorter cycle can provide better performance.
Some products shall be stirred during the sterilization cycle to:
• Avoid browning to the edge of packaging.
• Mix water in rice pouch to ensure that it will not stick.
• For qualitative reasons, mixing may be useful…
Baskets rotate under a heavy water streaming. This is a method for improving heat transfer into the packaging and reducing processing times and energy costs at the same time. Water streaming process is the most appropriate to rotation. When it is thought of as Air/steam, gas mixing should be facilitated by side plates such as static machine, but the drum space makes it impossible. This is causing major problems for temperature homogeneity in Air steam rotary autoclaves.
Types of packaging or products
Applications: Rotary Steriflow is generalized to better adapt to all type of packaging. All of them may be treated.
