Krones to showcase new milk, tea and juice production systems at Anuga FoodTec
From 20-23 March, at the Anuga FoodTec in Cologne, German machinery giant Krones will be showcasing technologies focused on the gentle and reliable production of milk, tea and juice.
Besides field-proven solutions, visitors to Krones’ stand (A020-B039 in Hall 08.1) will find innovations like the new shell-and-tube heat exchanger for producing milk, milk-based mixed drinks, tea or juice. In the new system, heat exchange takes place on the product-against-product principle: the still-cold product flows through the inner tube and is heated up by the already-warmed product in the outer tube. In this version, the energy recovery rate can be increased in comparison to the product-against-water model.
Various subsidiaries of the Krones Group will also be represented at the Anuga FoodTec: HST Maschinenbau GmbH will there be showcasing its Type HL6 homogeniser, which handles 27,000 litres of milk per hour, and is particularly well suited for upgrading the physical stability of UHT milk and desserts, and of milk-based mixed drinks. The HL6 is the economical variant among the high-pressure homogenisers. Thanks to the HST MultiGap valve, it consumes up to 25 per cent less energy, and a demand-responsive control system also produces water savings of 25 per cent.
Other firms from the Krones stable that will be appearing in Cologne in March include valve and pump specialist Evoguard, alongside Milkron GmbH – a subsidiary founded 18 months ago that focuses on planning and engineering production plants for all liquid to paste-like dairy products.
