Tetra Pak has reduced the energy use of its separators by 40%, by incorporating a breakthrough pressure management technology, Encapt™, into the systems’ design.
The Encapt technology lowers the atmospheric pressure around the spinning bowl using a low-pressure pump, and the system is supervised by sensors that keep air friction minimal. Less friction means less energy required.
Combined with a unique AirTight design inside the bowl, where the whole system is hermetically sealed to ensure no air enters. With the inlet at the bottom, and the outlet at the top it saves the centre for outlet flow, and so requires less energy.
