Presenting the new Armfield FT84-12 Microwave UHT add-on

Posted on 14th December 2012

Rapid heating for UHT / HTST systems

The FT84-12 unit has been developed to work alongside Armfield’s market leading UHT/HTST systems and can work on many commonly used products in the food and beverage industry. The product is heated in a short sterile tube enabling extremely rapid heating rates to be achieved and up to temperatures of 160°C. This extremely high heating rate reduces negative effects on the physical properties of the product, eg. denaturation of proteins, vitamins and Maillard reaction. Because no heated surface is required the heating effect of the microwave unit occurs throughout the volume of the product preventing any burning!
