Tropical Food Machinery can supply complete Aseptic Sterilization Plants for the treatment of tomato pulp or concentrate intended for aseptic packaging.

The plant can be installed on all TFM Tomato Processing Lines and includes a collection tank, a product circulation and filtering system, a homogenizer, and a concentric tube sterilizer.

The Sterilizer POSEIDON TCMA generates a top-quality product thanks to its sterilization modules with 4 concentric tubes in which the thermal action acts internally and externally with respect to the product circulation section. This allows a homogeneous and constant treatment throughout the process. The system allows the achievement of high pressures, higher than 100 bar, necessary for a uniform heat treatment for products with a non-homogeneous consistency such as tomato paste.

The management of the system is automated and all the parts in contact with the product are in AISI 316 stainless steel.

Work capacity:

from 1.000 Kg/h up to 10.000 Kg/h of processed product.
