Features and Principles
of Kelstream’s Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger
The Kelstream Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger (SSHE) is commonly utilized in aseptic processing of foodstuffs. These heat exchangers are preferred because of their capability to process heat-sensitive, viscous, or particulate-laden products, enhance the heat transfer of viscous products, and minimize the extent of burn-on, or fouling on the heat transfer surface.
Models and Options
The Kelstream Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger is available in a range from 0.5 m² up to and including 7.0 m² for capacities ranging from 100 ltr/hr up to a capacity of 10.000 ltr/hr per unit. The three biggest advantages of the Kelstream Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger are:
- Two concentric heat exchange surfaces to provide an efficient heat transfer
- Efficient heat transfer by continuous scraping the entire surface
- A large heating surface per unit on a small footprint (so, it is space and cost saving)

Efficient Heat Transfer for Food, Feed, Pharma and Non-Food
Due to its two concentric heated surfaces, its scraper principle and its large capacity per unit, the Kelstream Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger is the perfect solution for your thermal process. The scraping also takes care for a homogeneous mixing without damaging the product or the particles (up to 25 mm) in it.
The Flexibility of the Kelstream, by controlling the jacket surface temperatures, together with choosing the correct ancillary equipment, allows the customer to achieve a flexible processing system by which new product developments can be easily and quickly adapted to production and quickly to the consumer market.
Different Process Configurations
This process configuration allows product to simultaneously feed through 2 or more Kelstream units in parallel. This allows simple and substantial increases in production output rates. Perfect for the growing company.
When your process demands heating and cooling. The Kelstream can be linked together in series to provide a continuous process that provides both heating and cooling inline or provide 2 steps of cooling to achieve product with high Delta T (temperature difference from start to completion).
