With the increase in the demand for beverages and soft drinks, plate heat exchangers become essential elements to give an adequate response to it and be the ideal ones in soft transformation processes.
Thus, the shelf life of both drinks (for example, fruit juices) and food becomes fundamental, and that is why many of them undergo a pasteurisation process to increase it.
During it, the products are heated and immediately subjected to cooling. Likewise, it is also widespread to manufacture fruit juices or energy drinks with low pH from already pasteurised components, which undergo a brief heating process.
On the other hand, the cooling process destroys all those microorganisms that are present in the air supply, which becomes a mutual benefit regarding productivity and conservation
