Fruit Pulp and Juice Defroster
Pulp and juice automated defroster system in 200 liters capacity barrels.
The drums should stay defrosting between 24 to 72 hours exposed to a controlled temperature, according to the temperature of the refrigerating chamber. The purpose is to defrost the external layer allowing the handling of the ice block.
Once ready, the barrel, after the storage bags opened, they are put on a platform of the defroster tank, and then they are lifted and overturned. The ice block, at this time, is scraped by the scraping system and tank agitation.
The pulp is defrosted using steam straight to the cover of the defroster tank, meanwhile the scraping system and agitation remain on; the process is controlled by a pressure transmitter setting the temperature between 0ºC and 10ºC.
