When producing beer and juices, thermal product treatment is crucial for extending the product’s shelf-life. Krones VarioFlash range includes flash pasteurisers, which excel in low energy and water use, and meeting stringent requirements for product quality and microbiological safety.

To heat up the product particularly gently and safely, the flash pasteurisers are equipped with sliding PU control and an adapted hot-water circuit.

In the event of production stops, the patented  “Eco-hygienic Sleep Mode” guarantees that energy and water consumption are reduced by up to 90 per cent, without having to compromise on microbiological safety.

Krones’ VarioFlash B flash pasteuriser ensures microbiologically safe filling of beer. With an output from 18-600 hectolitres per hour, it is aimed at large and craft brewers or breweries running small batches. The VarioFlash B can be combined with bottle or can fillers, but also with lines for filling kegs.

The small variant of the VarioFlash B has been designed specifically for small breweries and is particularly well suited for the output range from 18-45 hectolitres per hour. Its compact size means the entire flash pasteuriser fits inside one container.

The small dimensions also allow its horizontal buffer tank to ensure the output is automatically adjusted in the event of production fluctuations, thus minimising product losses and media consumption.

The reduced number of components and sturdy engineering ensures reduced maintenance costs.
