Continuous food processing with KELSTREAM

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 Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger Seriesbe 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).

Food processing system integration

 How does the Kelstream continuous/high product output system integrate with INOX  food processing equipment.

Inox design specific food processing systems that involve mixing, cooking, cooling, filling of all types of food products.
From the reliable and effective INOX Instantiser, through to our processing systems to cook by method of steam heating, under atmospheric condition, pressure or vacuum conditions.
Cooking or cooling with the Kelstream system allows flexibility by design and bring together options that are tailored to suit your production facilities.

Cooling can be achieved either prior to filling with the Kelstream equipment or after filling with INOX designed cooling tunnels. Our expertise in these areas have seen INOX provide systems throughout Australian and Asian food manufacturing facilities.
INOX consult with and provide our customers with very specific and tailored solutions to food processing that improve on processing quality, safety of product, efficiencies in production, and improvements of food products to ensure that product success is achieved through expert design of the system and quality machinery.

Food Processing Systems With Inox Equipment
Mr. Robert Becher, Managing Director- INOX: “The inclusion of the Kelstream equipment range is an exciting development and partnership for INOX and our food processing customers. The available expertise and range of equipment allows access to technology that will contribute to the competitive edge that is so highly sought after in the food processing industry.”
