The Contherm SSHE range is able to deal with the kinds of products where other types of heat exchangers are known to clog or foul.
See how it works in below animation, showing some of the unique features you will obtain by using a Contherm.
In scraped-surface heat exchangers, the product enters the cylinder at the bottom and flows upwards. The heating or cooling medium travels in a counter-current flow through a narrow annular channel.
Rotating blades continuously remove product from the cylinder wall to ensure uniform heat transfer to the product. The product enters the cylinder in a corkscrew pattern in the same direction as the rotating part. This preserves product quality by providing a larger flow area, gentler product handling and reduced pressure drop across the inlet.The food product finally leaves the cylinder at the top.
Both product flow and rotor speed can be varied to suit the particular properties of the product in the cylinder.
Rental units are also available. For reasons of confidentiality, if you prefer to carry out processing trials using Contherm in your own plant and with your own personnel, we can offer you a Contherm test unit on a rental basis along with qualified Contherm personnel during start-up.
