These kinds of plants are usually equipped with a calory recovery system, with compensated heating and cooling sections for the reduction of energy consumption.
This is the ideal plant for product Holding and Cooling processes according to the thermal cycle required for hot-fill products (concentrate, juices, jams, ketchup and preserve).
It is designed to cool “hot fill” products. The process is generally used for packaging (e.g. PET) with a limited resistance to heat.
It is designed for a soft heating cycle on “cold fill” products. The process is generally used to bring the product to ambient temperature in order to limit the condensation on the external parts of the containers.
