APV Direct Steam Heating (Steam Injection) Units


Direct Steam Injection Systems

This operates by direct injection of steam into a continuous flow of product through a special nozzle. This system provides very rapid heating, although slower than with steam infusion. The injection system handles low to medium viscosity products and the capacity range is from 2,000 to 25,000 l/hour.

Typical products include milk, cream, flavored milk, soy milk and ice cream mix.


APV Direct Steam Heating (Steam Injection) Unit Features:
The infusion sterilizer offers instant, gentle heating without cavitation, accurate holding times and rapid cooling. These features ensure:

  • Accurate and defined sterilizing effect
  • High sterilizing values combined with low chemical changes
  • High reliability
  • Long production runs
  • Preservation of the natural properties of the raw product, with regard to taste, flavor, color and nutritional value
  • Final heating without contact with hot surfaces
  • Minimized risk of burn-on and fouling of sensitive products
  • Reduced product waste and manpower requirements due to long production runs combined with adequate automation level
  • Reduced fouling resulting in lower detergent and effluent generation
