Conveyor belts for pasteurization

Founded in 1921, Costacurta began its activities of manufacturing and selling wire cloth and crimped mesh in a factory in Lecco, approximately 50 km north-east of Milan, with a sales office and shop located in Milan, in Via dell'Orso.

Costacurta has gained an extensive experience in the design and manufacture of metal conveyor belts, also used for pasteurization, for applications that reach temperatures ranging from approx. -150°C to +1.150°C. These conveyor belts are used in a lot of industrial processes and sectors, from metallurgical engineering, to pharmaceuticals and food processing.

Pasteurization is a thermal reconditioning process aimed at destroying all the pathogenic microorganisms present in liquid or semi-liquid foods. It typically takes place at temperatures ranging approximately between 60°C and 85°C, thus increasing the food shelf life and reducing the risk of bacterial contamination while keeping the quality of the product almost unaltered.

Some of the products that normally require a pasteurization process are: fruit juices, sauces, purées, beer and wine.

The pasteurization process usually takes place inside spiral towers or straight tunnels. Spiral towers vertically use all the necessary space to guarantee the transit of food inside the pasteurization unit for the correct length of time. Spiral towers are usually made as single or double towers and can be configured in different ways to adapt to existing production processes as well as to suit the available space.

The foods to be pasteurised are moved inside pasteurization units on conveyor belts. The conveyor belts for spiral towers guarantee flexibility in every direction and are therefore suitable for going along tracks having both straight and curved sections. Costacurta conveyor belts are high-quality conveyor belts made in stainless steel. They guarantee maximum hygiene and ease of cleaning.

In addition to guaranteeing a high-quality product, Costacurta provides technicians and engineers to assist its clients in the selection of the most suitable type of belt for their needs.

Costacurta is also a qualified supplier of leading international companies that are involved in developing technology and providing engineering services and equipment for oil & gas, petrochemical and chemical industries.

Furthermore, Costacurta offers supervision during installation and assists its clients in the development of new products. / Technology - Technology Web Directory
