H.T.S.T. (Milk) Pasteurization

Test Systems

        The MTC-4000 a simple yet efficient pasteurization test method used to measure the short time,  pasteurization holding

period required by the U.S. public health

code.  This code states that every particle

of milk or product be heated to 160˚F for a

minimum of 15 seconds.  The MTC-4000

measures this short time pasteurization

period to 1/100th of a second accuracy.

        The MTC-4000 pasteurization test

timer can also be used with any other

conductive liquid requiring pasteurization.

(i.e. juices and other liquid products)

        Start and stop probe assemblies are

mounted at 2 different areas on the

pasteurization holding tube.  The top of the

SSI-003 salt injector is attached to a

pressurized air source while the bottom is

attached to the start probe injection nozzle

with high pressure reinforced tubing.

        Once the SSI-001 liquid output valve is

manually opened,  saline solution is injected

into the holding tube which starts the

counter.  When the saline solution reaches

the stop probe,  the counter stops providing

the elapsed time.  The operator can then

run additional tests to satisfy the health
