Sterilisation & pasteurisation
Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009 divides substrates into three categories. A separate pre-treatment of the substances is necessary, depending on their classification.
Abattoir waste requires 30 minutes of pressure sterilisation with approx. 2–3 bar overpressure at a temperature of 133 °C. Moreover, the sterilisation substances must be subjected to pre-treatment and heating or cooling. The overpressure in the sterilisation container necessitates the installation of various safety engineering facilities.
Pasteurisation is sufficient for the treatment of bio-waste, for instance. The pasteurisation takes place at 70 °C. It does not require a pressurised state and must be performed over 1 hour.
ENSPAR provides individual components and complete systems with measurement and control technology for both of these methods.
