The tank truck empties into the receptacle at the receipt station. The liquid received is then pumped by the receptacle, which is simultaneously used for degassing, to the storage tanks, via a cooler if required.
In order to achieve sufficient storage life of food while retaining the quality of the products as much as possible, they are subjected to a heat treatment.
This is termed either thermisation, pasteurisation, heating or ultra heating, depending on the temperature applied.
The use of sterile or aseptic plants is increasing in significance, whether in producing fruit juices, UHT milk or baby food.
The use of steamable, mix-proof leakage valves is as standard as the overlay of the processing tanks with sterile air or the use of magnetic stirring units.
