The Chester-Jensen STE-VAC Heater is able to process broad range of products, from those having water-like to paste-like viscosity, including those containing undissolved solids and particulate matter. These units provide a broad range of processing capacities and temperature progressions. The unique "cool/dry tube" design and high velocity product flow enables many hours of continuous, no burn-on, performance in heating applications.


The STE-VAC is sanitary and easily cleaned-in-place, with minimal gasketing requirements. The tri-clamp unions are designed to provide high product pressure capability and ready access for inspection of all product surfaces.
