JBT Retort Sterilizer
Steam is directly injected in the bottom of the retort for fast and uniform come-up. Water sprays running over the entire shell length intensely mix the steam and water and create a homogeneous temperature distribution that results in a uniform process throughout the retort. Indirect, sterile cooling via a plate heat exchanger saves water and eliminates the need for water treatment chemicals.
In our SuperAgi sterilizer the light perforated plate structured drum closely links to the basket - with spray pipes integrated in the drum. The vessel measures 1,500 mm. The narrow fitted drum enables top clamping of the basket, ensuring high holding capacity for a large range of container types. The smaller diameter of the vessel and the narrower void between drum and shell generate savings in steam, compressed air and cooling/process water with minimal F0 differences.
