​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Tetra Pak® Homogenizer 500​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​The highest capacity food processing homogenizer in the world - with the lowest total cost of ownership​

Our Tetra Pak® Homogenizer 500 handles high-pressure homogenization of emulsions and suspensions. It is ideal for both high and low viscous as well as aseptic and non-aseptic products including pasteurized milk, UHT milk, cream, yoghurt, condensed milk, ice cream mix, fruit juices, RNGS (rice, nut, grain or soy) beverages, concentrates, purées, tomato products, dressings, ketchups, liquid egg, mayonnaise, sauces and gravies. It is also available as a high-pressure pump – ideal for feeding a spray dryer when producing powder for example.​

Highest homogenizing efficiency with HD EnergyIQ

  • Requires less pressure – cuts costs and environmental impact

  • Variable pressure and capacity for great flexibility

  • Up to 40% longer service intervals on pistons, seals and bearings

Low water and steam consumption

High-temperature condensate aseptic barrier and serial cooling system

The high-temperature condensate in the aseptic barrier minimizes consumption of steam and cooling water. The outlet temperature of the condensate is minimum 110 °C (conventional designs have about 60°C). This means that our solution save 70% of the steam and 80% of the water compared to conventional designs. On top of this, we can add the enhanced food safety aspects of the higher temperature. One water-saving feature of Tetra Pak Homogenizer is a serial cooling water system instead of a parallel one. This reduces cooling water requirements, since each drop of water will be re-used on more than one piston. In addition, up to 80% of the cooling water can be re-circulated for use again.

Tetra Pak homogenizer 500 cuts water and steam consumption

Serial cooling system cuts water and steam consumption

Water conservation is not only a rapidly growing global environmental concern; water is also becoming more costly. Our homogenizers are equipped with a high-temperature condensate aseptic barrier that protects food safety and a serial cooling system. These combine to cut steam consumption by 70% and cooling water consumption by 80% compared to conventional solutions. To understand how we achieve this, it’s useful to look at how serial cooling systems work and why high temperature condensate requires less water and steam consumption.
