Following a difficult year, HRS Heat Exchangers is delighted to be able to confirm its attendance at the foodpro event at the Sydney Olympic Park in July 2021.
Among the products that HRS will showcase is its new I Series which offers to de-pack, crush, and melt (remelt) frozen fruit juice for the manufacture of high-quality not-from-concentrate (NFC) products.
The HRS I Series consists of two elements, the IC Series which de-packs and crushes frozen products from lined 200-litre drums, and the IM series which melts the frozen product.
The IC Series features a roller conveyor which feeds individual drums into a tipper that empties them into the crusher. Here, a specially designed spiked roller crushes the solid ice into an icy slush, which is then transferred to the IM Series re-melting device.
Based on the tubular heat exchanger technology for which HRS is renowned, the IM Series raises the temperature of the juice from frozen to around 4°C in 90 seconds. From here, the cold liquid juice can be pumped to a bespoke holding tank, or straight into the next process step.
The I Series can handle up to 60 drums (12,000 litres) of frozen product per hour, also be combined with HRS’s existing range of fruit juice processing machinery for pasteurization or filling.
More information on the HRS I Series will be available on Stand S16 at foodpro 2021 in Sydney from 25 to 28 July 2021. Visit, hrs-heatexchangers.com
