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.
The Contherm scraped-surface heat exchangers are designed for heating and cooling operations in the continuous and semi-continuous processing of many food, health and beauty aid products.
