The Best Types of Pasteurizers to Buy in Kenya
Are you looking for a pasteurizer to buy for your production purposes? You might be wondering what the right type of pasteurizer to buy is. We want to help you make an informed decision when buying one. In this post we will be sharing guidelines on the best types of pasteurizers to buy in Kenya.
Why you need a pasteurizer
There are many businesses that require a pasteurizer for their production purposes. Some of the businesses that require a pasteurizer include but not limited to:
- Pasteurized milk processing firms
- Juice making firms
- Alcohol distillation firms
- Cosmetics plants
- Confectionary plants
- Shoe polish making companies
- Petroleum jelly companies
Because the process of manufacturing all the above requires heating and mixing, a pasteurizer is very important:
- It helps you do big volume production cycles at reduced cost and more quickly.
- The quality of the product is also very high because the contents are not directly heated which helps avoid them burning.
- Because a pasteurizer has an agitator(stirrer) with a rotating motor, the contents are well mixed which helps maintain an even temperature/texture/taste.
- A pasteurizer with a geared VFD(variable frequency drive) motor also helps regulate different speeds at different stages or for different products as required.
If therefore you are searching for the best pasteurizers to buy in Kenya, consider the above characteristics.
Different types of pasteurizers to choose from:
There are three main types of pasteurizers in Kenya determined by mode of heating you can choose from: steam pasteurizers, electric pasteurizers and gas pasteurizers. The pasteurizers come in different volume capacities ranging from 100 liters to 1000 liters. You can therefore choose one depending with your needs. Our pasteurizers are made with high quality food grade stainless steel.
The best types of pasteurizers to buy in Kenya
Locally, there are mostly three types of pasteurizers commonly used as described above. Below are descriptions of the best types of pasteurizers to buy in Kenya:
Steam pasteurizers uses steam to heat the contents. Steam is pumped into the inner chamber that heats up the contents inside the pasteurizer. The steam is not pumped directly inside the tank but an inner chamber. This means you need a source of steam and it should be sufficient enough to heat the contents. If you have a good steam generator, this is the best and quickest method of heating.
It’s very suitable for shoe polish, cosmetics, petroleum jelly and other thick products because it’s faster and produces high heat temperatures at a shorter time. This also means for larger volumes of more than 400 litres it gives a cheaper cost per unit to produce.
Electric pasteurizers are the most common pasteurizers because of their convenience. They use electric elements to produce heat. However they too do not heat directly but heat water in the inner chamber which then heats the innermost wall that transfers the heat to the contents inside the pasteurizer.
They also offer low cost of production for smaller quantities of below 400 liters. Electric pasteurizers come in either single phase or 3 phase power connection. For higher volumes of more than 400 liters it is recommended you go for a 3 phase because the cost of production per unit is lower compared to a single phase of the same volume. The three phase heats faster and the agitator is more powerful therefore is able to stir the contents well.
Gas pasteurizers operate in a similar manner like electric pasteurizers but the difference here is that they use gas to heat. However they still need electric connection for the agitator. Where gas is cheaper than electricity, they can be a cheaper alternative. Therefore if you can manage to get cheap gas supply this might be ideal for you.
