    Product Description

    Our Triple-Zone AquaFlow Pasteurizer provides maximum capacity and flexibility for large processors. Similar to the Double-Zone AquaFlow, you can use all three tanks for heating or you can combine pasteurization and cooling into one continuous process. In any case, your products will be full pasteurized in just 2 to 3 minutes, extending their shelf life and reducing your risk of a recall.

    Marlen’s Aquaflow Water Pasteurizers are third-party validated as published in the American Journal of Food Protection* and designed for Ready-to-Eat Food Products by Submersion Heating for Reduction of Listeria monocytogenes. Our Aquaflow is USDA-FSIS Recognized Technology as a post-package surface pasteurization system**. Marlen’s control system and specially designed manifold provide uniform heat treatment for pasteurizing packaged product like hams and hot dogs. Using higher temperature regimens of 195° to 205°F (90.6 to 96.1 °C), reductions of L. monocytogenes (~2 log) within 2 to 4 min. Heat penetration affects only the outer 1 cm of product, and surface temperatures were equilibrated back to below 50°F (10°C) within a few minutes after submersion in a chill tank.
