The highest capacity food processing homogenizer in the world - with the lowest total cost of ownership
At up to 63,600 l/h the new Tetra Pak® Homogenizer 500 is the highest capacity food processing homogenizer in the world - with the lowest total cost of ownership. It is ideal for both high and low viscous as well as aseptic and non-aseptic products including pasteurized milk, UHT milk, cream, yoghurt, condensed milk, fruit juices, RNGS (rice, nut, grain or soy) beverages, concentrates, purées, etc.
For years, Tetra Pak® Homogenizers have been enabling the most cost-efficient homogenizing on the market. The portfolio of Tetra Pak® Homogenizers includes nine machines in the capacity range of 55 l/h to 63,600 l/h.
Highly efficient homogenization and low energy consumption
Thanks to the unique patented design of our homogenization device HD 100 Tetra Pak® Homogenizers achieve the same homogenization effect as traditional homogenizers but with up to 30% lower pressure.
Our latest innovation, the homogenization device HD EnergyIQ, engineered for the processing of milk at a capacity of more than 15,000 l/h, allows a reduction of pressure by up to 50% compared to traditional devices.
Reduced pressure results in lower power consumption and lowers the total load on the machine, which in turn extends the service intervals. Thus, food producers benefit from significant energy savings and reduced maintenance costs.
Double the lifetime, half the cost of spare parts due to turnable parts
The homogenizing device, valves and seats are designed symmetrically so they can be used twice – once on each side. This means that when one side gets worn down due to product abrasiveness, the operator simply turns the component over and the machine can run again for just as long on the other side. This simple solution doubles the life of the part and so halves the cost.
Provide easy access for service
The homogenizer is designed in such a way as to make the working parts easy to see and access for maintenance and service. For example, the front hood has a lock on each side, which makes it easy to open. Once opened, operators have full access for service of the wet-end parts. Similarly, the drive unit is easily accessed by unlocking the side door, and the hydraulic unit and crankcase are accessed simply by lifting off the two back panels.
Easy access for maintenance
The pipes for the piston cooling circuit are placed in the cylinder bushing, which means operators do not need to disconnect the cooling water pipes to carry out a service. This saves time and effort, and so contributes to higher uptime.
Easy to inspect; safer for operators
The hood has a large window, so operators can inspect the homogenizer even while it is running, which increases safety. The moving pistons can also be inspected during operation through the large hood window.
