Melting, Heating & Cooling

In the industry, consistent results from food and beverage processing equipment are paramount. Whether mixing foods or sauces, liquids, mixtures, or performing any number of processes. Melting, Heating, Cooling and maintaining the optimal product temperature is crucial.

S4 Engineering can supply Melting, Heating and Cooling Vessels of varying capacities dependant on your requirements.

These vessels are fitted with agitators as standard with the option of wall scrapers to ensure efficient cooling of your ingredients. Further options might include hatches or hoppers thus combining the mixing and cooling functions within one process stage.

In-line Heating & Cooling Scraped Surface Heat Exchangers (SSHEs)

Scraped surface heat exchangers (SSHEs) are commonly used in the food industry for continuous liquid heat transfer and crystallisation processes.

They are ideally suited for products that are viscous, sticky and contain particulate matter. Especially appropriate where there is some degree of crystallisation required.

S4 Melters can be used for:

  • Butter
  • Caramel
  • Gelatine
  • Chocolate

And many more applications.

Plate & Tubular Heat Exchangers

S4 Engineering offer a wide range of Plate and Tubular Heat Exchangers to augment your production process.

Sectors where heat exchangers are commonly used include Food & Beverage, Brewing, Dairy, Healthcare and Pharmaceutical.

Heating and cooling vessels can be done in a continuous or batch process depending on the process & production requirements. Additionally, you can use clean in place system to automatically clean the internal components during a production process.

Case Studies

Greencore Spalding

Wishing to expand their sauce production capabilities, returning customer Greencore enlisted our services once again. For this £130,000 contract, we installed a 1,000 litre stainless steel cooling vessel, complete with a range of control and safety systems.
