How hot does a pasteurizer get?

Pasteurization Type The most common method of pasteurization in the United States today is High Temperature Short Time (HTST) pasteurization, which uses metal plates and hot water to raise milk temperatures to at least 161° F for not less than 15 seconds, followed by rapid cooling.

What is the best temperature for pasteurization?

Pasteurization of milk, widely practiced in several countries, notably the United States, requires temperatures of about 63 °C (145 °F) maintained for 30 minutes or, alternatively, heating to a higher temperature, 72 °C (162 °F), and holding for 15 seconds (and yet higher temperatures for shorter periods of time).

What is low temperature long time pasteurization?

The batch or low-temp-long-time or holder pasteurization process is the traditional method of pasteurizing milk. It requires heating milk to about 63 degrees Celsius for not less than 30 minutes.

What can a batch pasteurization VAT be used for?
