AMS Series - Terminal sterilization

This methods of sterilization avoid any damage of the processed liquid material and their containers, including heat sensitive materials. Thanks to an effective recirculation of air, uniform temperature is maintained in the sterilizing chamber during all process phases.

Required pressure balance is achieved by using sterile compressed air in the chamber. The process includes the application of counterpressure to avoid permanent deformation of containers.

Pure steam is used in the chamber for heating liquids and over-pressure filtered air is injected into chamber to compensate for the rising temperature and pressure inside products. Internal fans ensure a uniform temperature distribution, between 110°C to 135°C, and to avoid cold spots across the chamber. Rapid heating and cooling are standard phases. Products are completely dry at the end of the cycle.
