Energy savings on autoclaves

Axitherm reduces the autoclave steam consumption of pasteurization or sterilization while preserving VP / VP and productivity.

Reduction of instantaneous steam requirements

Reduction of additional compressed air

Improvement of cooling efficiency

Objective: Save energy on autoclaves by revisiting your scale

The operation of an autoclave workshop is most often the result of a story, with grouping of equipment, modifications to the energy networks (steam, compressed air and cooling water), mix of models, creation of recipes and changes of ‘packaging. So many natural evolutions which may no longer correspond to the initial writing of the scales. Hence a slow but certain drift in productivity coupled with an increase in the energy consumed.
Axitherm re-writes the scales in accordance with the current capacities of the workshop, which instantly results in a reduction in autoclave steam consumption and sometimes even in productivity gains

Methodology to reduce steam consumption in autoclave

On-site evaluation : instrumented monitoring with the usual scale and a fully loaded autoclave
Study of regulation parameters
Test phase: 1 to 3 changes to the scale (partial charge)
Adjustment of regulation parameters
Validation of the optimized scale: control of the new scale and verification of the objectives with autoclave under full load


Quick set-up of applicable arrangements:
1 to 3 days per scale
Extensive report including:
Results achieved in relation to objectives set
Fo / Po Validation for all program modifications
Guaranteed packaging integrity
Advice to adapt optimised program to your future recipes
No major investment in equipment
