Choose Ziemann Holvrieka for reliable juice plant turnkey solutions
When it comes to juice plant turnkey solutions, Ziemann Holvrieka offers unmatched expertise and cutting-edge technology. Our aseptic bulk storage solutions and sophisticated engineering ensure the highest standards of hygiene and product quality. Trust us to optimise your juice preservation with efficient and reliable turnkey projects.
Aseptic Bulk Storage for Long-Term Juice Preservation
With our innovative aseptic bulk storage process, raw fruit juices can be pasteurized, cooled, and stored in large tanks. This unique concept allows partial processing, storage, and shipping before the final processing, enabling incremental product withdrawal while maintaining asepticism. Fruit juice suppliers can now store high-quality juices for extended periods without the risk of microbial contamination.
Sophisticated Engineering for Quality and Aseptic Standards
Our aseptic bulk storage tanks are cylindrical units with vertical axes, meticulously designed to meet the latest aseptic standards. The stainless steel construction of all wetted surfaces ensures food-grade hygiene and is ground to a specific surface roughness for optimal performance.
The product piping is equipped with aseptic diaphragm valves, featuring sealing solutions to prevent microorganism intrusion. Larger valves are fitted with valve rod seals and spirit reservoirs to accommodate volume changes and maintain valve cleanliness. Flanges adhere to the German DIN 11864 standard, leaving no room for bacteria cavities.
To enable complete drainage, piping is connected to the tanks’ lowest point. A protective nitrogen atmosphere is employed throughout the tanks and piping to prevent juice oxidation. Our nitrogen buffer system efficiently maintains appropriate nitrogen levels in all tanks and the entire piping system.
Ensuring Aseptic Conditions with Advanced Technology
Propeller-type tank agitators ensure optimal circulation of tank contents during juice transport. Customised tank cleaning systems maintain aseptic conditions during cleaning and disinfection processes. We utilise fresh water drawn from the CIP installation for tank cleaning and rinsing. After cleaning, tanks are filled with nitrogen to ensure aseptic conditions.
Expert Support for Uncompromised hygienic safety
Ziemann Holvrieka’s aseptic storage terminals are equipped with clean-in-place (CIP) and sterilize-in-place (SIP) installations. Our process engineers develop comprehensive cleaning programs and provide training for their efficient use.
To ensure product sterility, very specialized equipment must be operated and maintained properly. We implement automation systems to minimise the risk of human error. Electronically controlled processes for filling and withdrawing from the tanks guarantee the asepticity of the end product.
Human Involvement and Training for Optimal Performance
Though fully automated, aseptic juice terminals may still require human involvement during loading and discharge processes. Our expert training reduces the potential for product contamination with microorganisms during sterilisation procedures.
Our juice loading and refrigeration systems are equipped to maintain the required temperature regardless of ambient conditions. The equipment’s capabilities range from -10 °C to +40 °C, ensuring optimal juice preservation.
