Spiral Pasteurizing Systems
To ensure perfect pasteurizing, Tecnopool has developed sophisticated systems which incorporate, in addition to the insulated rooms - developed and built to guarantee the products being processed reach the correct temperature within the specified time - the T-Worth conveying system.
This conveying system which ensures greater flexibility thanks to the possibility of operating in high temperatures without problems is integrated with the pasteurizing line which mounts a convection heating system guaranteeing the product is heated in a uniform manner regardless of the moisture content.
The application flexibility the Tecnopool systems offer is further confirmed by the possibility of programming product heating sequences at different temperatures or in separate rooms or in the same room but divided into compartments. This feature offers greater and precise control of heating times and temperature stabilisation guaranteeing the quality of the food product being processed.
This latest generation belt runs on tracks, requiring practically no lubrication. It is a new stainless steel cross-bar conveyor made with special links whose main technical features are illustrated below.
Special self-lubricating plastic elements are inserted on the links. They are shaped underneath to form the shoe that allows the belt to slide on the rails, whilst the upper part is shaped to hold the product in place.
A particular feature of the drive system is its special plastic wheels that, in addition to minimizing noise and friction, have a special engage/release system that makes maintenance/adjustments much simpler, allowing all such work to be performed extremely quickly.
Depending on the application, the belt is supplied either with a stainless steel mesh or a plastic mesh, suitable for operating temperatures anywhere between +120°C and -40°C. Since it does not have the central structure that drum-type spirals typically have, the system allows air to flow freely, thus optimizing the various heat treatments. This particular feature also makes cleaning that much easier.
