Sustainable cooling solutions

In the soft drink industry there is an increasing demand for unsweetened, natural flavors of fruit. Although cola is still the most popular soft drink, consumers are becoming increasingly aware. Choosing to be more mindful is also possible with our sustainable cooling solutions for the soft drink industry. Our Laser Plates and cooling products are involved in many steps of the production process. For example, in the pasteurization of fruit, syrup and the process of keeping the end product cool. Our coolers contribute to a high quality product with a long shelf life.

Sweet, fruity, sour or bitter; the syrup room is the beginning of the production process for all soft drinks. This is where the taste is determined. After inspection, sugars or sweeteners are mixed with other ingredients (fruit juice, aromas, extracts and/or additives). The resulting syrup is checked for quality in a laboratory and then pasteurized.

In the computer-controlled mixing installation, water, syrup and carbon dioxide are mixed in the correct proportions to create soda. This is again pasteurized and finally brought to the filling machine.

Pasteurization takes place both in syrup boilers and in mixing tanks. By using Omega Laser Plate tank components you can adjust the temperature quickly and easily.

In countries with warm climates we still see that many soft drink bottles are cooled in ice-cube containers. These ice cubes are produced by Omega Thermo Products for all major A-brand manufacturers. In contrast to cylinder type ice makers, our ice makers do not contain moving parts, less space for the cooling compartment is needed and have little to no maintenance.
Omega Ice Machines can build up 1/8” – 3/8” of ice on either side of the Laser Plate.
