With our many years of processing experience, we are able to offer our expertise right at the beginning of your process.

We assist our clients with the specifications and supply for those essential service items needed for a complete plant.

Using our tremendous experience with hygienic liquid food processing, Thermaflo will design, manufacture, install and commission your juice and beverage process lines for your specific application.


Typical Process Steps

  • Raw product blending, pumping and storage: Our design will take into account things like required technical specifications of the product and daily volumes.
  • Heat treatment: Thermaflo have developed considerable expertise in the building of both batch pasteurisers and continuous HTST pasteurisers (often referred to as flash pasteurisers). We build to the required flow rate, select the correct heat exchanger (whether this is a tubular or plate heat exchanger unit) pasteurisation temperature, holding time and outlet temperature (eg hot fill, ambient or 4 deg C) typically each pasteuriser is a one -off to meet the specific needs of the individual client.
  • De-aeration:  If needed a de-aerator is included in the line.
  • Pasteurised product balance tanks:  Again, taking into account the site requirements, the design will include tankage to store the treated product to provide a buffer prior to filling.
  • Fillers:  Depending on the type of packaging and the required flow rate that our client requires we will supply and install the suitable filler, whether this is a rotary gravity filler, gable top filler etc.
  • Bottle Handling:  We offer a full range of bottle handling equipment, from depalletising or bottle unscramblers to conveying, labeling, collection tables or bottle packing.
  • Electrical Control:  We design and build the central control for the above plant. By doing this we take responsibility for the interface of the plant and this enables us to deliver a complete integrated solution.
  • Site installation:  Thermaflo will design and install the stainless steel pipe-work for the product, CIP, hot water or steam and chilled water, plus compressed air lines and stainless steel electrical conduit, all to the highest quality and strict hygienic standards. Much like the electrical control, the pipe-work design is a critical component of the integrated process system.
  • Commissioning and Training:  We provide a full commissioning and training service to support the project.
  • After-sales support:  This includes both preventative maintenance service support on a scheduled program as well as on the phone support for the operators and local trades eg the electrician.
