Innopas SX from KHS gives bottlers greater flexibility in the pasteurization process

With dynamic PU control from KHS the process temperatures are regulated within the hot zones of the tunnel pasteurizer to enable maximum product safety and flavor stability. With a new program for PU control the customer can independently adapt the pasteurization unit setpoint for a specific container type. Here, the full functionality of the PU control unit is maintained. "In this way subsequent product changes or new products can be easily made or introduced at any time," says Soltau. "Bottlers can thus react quickly to changes on the market and product trends."

Improved design

KHS has also made several improvements regarding the design of its Innopas SX, with maximum emphasis placed on easy operation. The tunnel pasteurizer is clearly structured and offers optimum access which chiefly simplifies the maintenance and cleaning of the system. For this reason parts of the process engineering, such as the heat exchangers and media supply, have been relocated on the machine as modules in order to further improve servicing and machine safety.

Spare part management for the KHS Innopas SX has also been optimized. The number of components the customer is required to keep in stock has been reduced while the delivery times for spare and wear parts have been shortened. As functions can also be simply retrofitted as an option, this boosts flexibility for the customer and ensures the future viability of filling lines at a low operating cost.
