Terlet Terlotherm Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger
Many prepared foods and other products prevent optimal (food) heat transfer because of their consistency. For example, food containing large particles, viscous and crystalline products can quickly block or foul certain types of scraped surface heat exchangers. The Terlotherm Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger ensures a satisfactory, trouble-free heat transfer.
Features Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger
The Terlotherm Scraped Heat Exchanger is available in a range from 0.3 m2 (ΔLab) up to 7.0 m2 (Δ700) for capacities ranging from 100 kg/hr. to 10.000 kg/hr.
The three biggest advantages of the Terlotherm Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger are:
- Two concentric heat exchange surfaces to provide optimum heat transfer
- Efficient heat transfer by continuous scraping entire surface
- Large heating surface per machine
Optimum Food Heat Transfer
The Terlotherm is a vertical Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger with two concentric heat exchange surfaces to provide optimum (food) heat transfer. This design, together with other features, offers great advantages which make it possible to deal with complicated food processing demands as mentioned above.
- Aseptic cooling
- Slush Freezing

Tuxel Van Meurs Bag-in-Box system
For many years Van Meurs has been one of the leading Bag-in-Box producers. Van Meurs has an outstanding reputation and an impressive reference list in the field of Bag-in-Box systems. Van Meurs Bag-in-Box systems have a high output. As a result of this increased output the handling cost per liter of product is very low compared to other systems.
Advantages & features bag-in-box filling
The Van Meurs Bag-in-Box filling machines can fill 1 to 1200 liter bags equipped with virtually all standard closure systems. The Van Meurs filling machines are also capable of filling drums, buckets and sterile containers. Depending on the application we deliver semi or fully automatic filling machines.
Thanks to the unique filling valve, it is possible to vacuumize before filling, fill the bag with product and inject steam or an inert gas before closing the bag. Combined with an advanced PLC control that controls all pressures, temperatures, airflow, etc., the Van Meurs Bag-in-Box filling machines will not cause re-infection.
Product range Van Meurs
The Van Meurs product range consists of various types of filling machines for all kinds of applications, such as the filling of dairy products, fruit juices, sauces, etc.
Applications Van Meurs
The Van Meurs bag-in-box filling machines can be applied to fill various products (with or without particles) and to pack all kinds of liquids. For example:
|Wine||Liquid egg products|
|Liquid frying fat||Fruit juices and concentrates|
Tuxel Vacuum-gassing systems
Vacuum and gassing helps in the preservation of materials and thus increasing the shelf life. Terlet has been developing vacuum-gassing systems for more than 60 years.
Terlet’s vacuumizing and gassing machines are designed to vacuumize and replace trapped air with inert gas in metal and composite cans. Originally this process to vacuumize cans is meant to prevent the oxydation of milkfat in contact with oxygen, but also skimmed products with valuable nutritions and vitamins are treated the same way.
The vacuumizing and gassing machines are available in different types of configurations and structures in order to meet all variations in can sizes and line speeds.
More info vaccuumizing powdered milk
Packaging in an inert gas atmosphere of powdered milk and powdered milk-based products, such as baby formula, takes place all over the world. How and why is our vacuumizing and gassing equipment an ideal solution to extend the shelf life of these types of products?
Powdered milk can only be kept for a limited period of time. Oxidation of the milk fat causes decay, which happens under the influence of oxygen that is present in the surrounding air (externally) or within and partly dissolved in the actual powder (internally). A solution to this problem is to dispel the air (that contains oxygen) from the packaging by means of nitrogen, carbon dioxide or a mixture of these. The process needs to replace the internal air with inert gas and the packaging is hermetically sealed afterwards. Terlet’s vacuumizing and gassing equipment fully meets those requirements to achieve the desired extended shelf life of powdered milk.
The Terlet vacuum-gassing systems consists of an automatic loading and unloading system, one to four water-cooled vacuum pumps and an operating and control unit. Every step in the process is electronically operated and controlled.
Controlled and careful transport
In the design of our vacuum-gassing systems, we have devoted greatest care to the prevention of driving, pushing, bumping and chafing of your products. In all transport phases, even during loading and unloading of the vacuum chambers, every product is continuously on a moving surface. It is nowhere propelled forward by the cans following it. Besides, we choose material with an extreme low friction for the side guides.
Vacuum chamber with rotating floor
The loading system carefully transports a controlled number of products to each of the vacuum chambers. Depending on the desired capacity, Terlet applies two sizes of vacuum chambers with a diameter of 1250 mm or 1700 mm respectively, with a vertically opening and closing chamber. This design guarantees the prevention of undesired air turbulence and minimizes the use of inert gas.
The floor of a vacuum chamber consists of a rotating tray with a non-rotating product guide, shaped in a concentric spiral. During loading, the floor tray rotates so that the cans completely fill the spiral. After the programmed vacuumizing and gassing, the floor rotates in the opposite direction, placing the cans automatically on the conveyor belt, which takes the cans to the sealing machine, where the lids are hermetically sealed.
A PLC and specific software are the heart of the operating and control system, to which detailed registration of the process can be linked. All the operating functions are shown in a menu on a LCD screen, that also visualise problems. The system is accompanied with the necessary interface options for other machines in the packaging line. The software has an open set-up that makes expansions or adjustment easy.
