High-TS Concentration is widely used in TEC Plants. The process is especially interesting when product quality matters. Or when the costs of the product is high and efficient operation is required. Our process has the following advantages:
- Less Product Losses. A high-TS finisher allows the main evaporator to run on much lower concentrations. Rising- and Falling-Film Evaporators tend to foul severely at higher concentrations, due to burn-on. A Rototherm-E has very low product losses as the technology is based on continuous renewal of product against the heating surface. Total product losses should be reduced to 0.1-0.5%.
- More aroma Addition. If the process involves aroma recovery, more aroma can be added as very high TS is possible.
- Higher line Capacity. A High-TS finisher has the possibility to increase the total line output as less evaporation will be required in subsequent operations.
High-TS Concentration – Only advantages
Characteristics and advantages of High-TS Concentration
Product Concentration technology
TEC Square uses Rototherm-E technology as a finisher. This evaporator gives easily concentrations for spray drying of 60%.
A final concentration with very high TS is possible. Sometimes it is even possible to go straight to powder.
Instantaneous line capacity
High TS evaporation can increase the overall line output as less water is availble for the final drying operation.
High TS Concentration decreases the water contents for the final process step, giving less quality loss. The process is also running at low temperatures, providing additional product quality.
A Rototherm-E produces hardly any fouling. CIP is very simple, sometimes a water run is sufficient.
