Title (EN) SYSTEM, METHOD AND APPARATUS
(FR) SYSTÈME, PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A steam sterilization system for a conveyor wash using a submicron filter (24) that can cope with transition from lower pressure flow of water to higher pressure flow of steam. Water flows through the submicron filter when the system is in a first operating mode, and steam flows through the submicron filter when the system is in a second operating mode. The submicron filter is such that predetermined values of steam pressure and temperature can be applied for a sustained period of time without damaging the filter, thereby avoiding reducing the efficiency of the filter.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un système de stérilisation par la vapeur destiné à un appareil de lavage à convoyeur, utilisant un filtre submicronique (24) capable de supporter la transition entre un débit d'eau d'une pression inférieure et un débit de vapeur d'une pression supérieure. L'eau s'écoule à travers le filtre submicronique lorsque le système se trouve dans un premier mode de fonctionnement, et la vapeur s'écoule à travers le filtre submicronique lorsque le système se trouve dans un second mode de fonctionnement. Le filtre submicronique est tel qu'il peut supporter des valeurs de pression et de température de vapeur prédéterminées pendant des périodes soutenues sans subir de dommage, évitant ainsi une éventuelle diminution de son efficacité.
