Autoclave for sterilisation

SCHOLZ supplies the food and pet food industry after the acquisition of the well-known manufacturer LUBECA. In these autoclaves for sterilisation or pasteurisation of canned food, glasses, soft packaging or also ready meals, their thermal treatment takes place under counter pressure. As standard, product-loaded baskets or special pallets are placed in the autoclave.

Usual procedures are:

  • steam-air procedure, with spray cooling
  • half- and full water immersion method
  • sprinkling method

All systems can additionally be equipped with a rotary drum to continuously rotate the loaded feeding baskets during the process. An additional quick closing door enables transit operation in passage. Sliding doors and chain transport systems enable automatic operation of the lines.

Steam is used to heat the units. Water is used for cooling. Heating and cooling is usually done indirectly. The heat exchangers used for this purpose enable energetically favourable condensate recirculation and/or further utilisation of the waste heat. Indirect cooling by means of a cold water pump and/or heating via hot water heaters is not optimal, but still possible.

Technical parameters

  • Material: steel / stainless steel
  • Capacity: 1-12 cage pitches
  • Further application: sterilisation of e.g. mushroom substrate
until 6 bar
until 165 °C
Feeding diameter: 400 mm - 2.000 mm
