Capacity ratings: Single Strength Flow Rates:10 tubes =’s 29.5 GPM and 14 tubes =’s 45.9 GPM; 38 – 45 brix Flow Rates: Would be the same flow rate for any brix running, however the smaller tube configuration, relieves the product pressure seen by the thicker product. Previously run on concentrated apple juice at 101º C at max speed of 45 GPM, using 14 hold tubes. Flow rates can be increased by running hotter in the heater section. Flows above are based on previous internal flow validation testing.

Containers previously run: Different styles of tote packaging Plastic, Metal, and cardboard totes. As for drums it was plastic or metal drums. Can run pails with pail filler attachment (not included).
