Ultra High Treatment by Limitech A/S
Ultra-high temperature treatment often referred to as UHT, is a type of heat treatment that significantly prolongs the shelf life of liquid foods. The food is heated for 3-5 seconds to a temperature well above 100 degrees C, often 135-145 C. The advantage of the high temperatures is that the treatment time itself can be so short that the product is not damaged. The double injector makes continous production possible with an easy operating system.
Ultra-high temperature processing (UHT), ultra-heat-treatment or ultra-pasteurization is a food processing technology that almost sterilizes liquid food at a temperature required to kill bacterial endospores, in up to 2 to 5 seconds. This is often done by either:
– Direct heating systems
– Indirect heating systems
– Flash cooling
