The invention relates to agriculture, namely the processing of liquid products such as milk, juices and other agricultural and food industry, to ensure its long-term preservation without compromising the nutritional and taste properties.

A device for processing liquid radiation in a thin layer containing the camera pasteurization, which includes vertical working cylinder mounted inside a radiation source, a nozzle for supplying a fluid, communicated with him and the cavity of the cylinder receiving chamber with the driver of a thin layer that is located coaxially with the working cylinder, a pipe for discharge of product, and includes a receiving tank located coaxially to the working cylinder and connected with a pipe for supplying a fluid receiving chamber, a heat exchanger located inside the receiving tank coaxially to the working cylinder and the compensating chamber, the body of which is made in the form of a cylinder rolling in the truncated cone mounted between the working cylinder and the nozzle for discharge of product, while the diameter of the compensation chamber is longer than the diameter of the working cylinder, automatic control system to provide continuous power control of a light source depending on the flow and temperature about the ukta through installation on pipe outlet product sensor and providing process control during the transition from product to substitute liquid and Vice versa sensor lower level. (Patent No. 2075163 registered, 10.03.1997)

The disadvantages are the counterpart of the constructive complexity of the formation of a thin layer of the product while changing the flow rate in the working cylinder, which leads to poor handling of the product (burnt or underheating) IR-radiation.

Known electroactuator A1-PEI-1000, commercially available LLC Akomas", electroactuator for liquid food products.

The closest in technical essence of the present invention is a device for processing liquid infrared radiation, containing the camera pasteurization, the source of infrared radiation, pipes for supplying and discharging liquid, a circulation pump, a heat exchanger-the heat exchanger and the temperature sensor (Patent RU 2045919 C1, publ. 20.10.1995).

Disadvantages closest analogue is that the processing liquid product IR-heating does not occur in a thin layer, and the total volume of fluid flowing inside a quartz tube, which leads to a significant increase in electric power of the heater, and hence more energy. When performance 1000 l/h installation power is 20 kW.

The task of the invention is the provision of the necessary quality liquid product, the relevant technical requirements, reduce energy costs on the process of education is otci product.

We offer installation for processing liquid infrared radiation in a thin layer is designed to provide long-term preservation without altering the nutritional and taste properties of liquid food (milk, juices and other) and can be used on dairy farms, workshops and mini-factories for processing agricultural products. In use of the present invention is the opportunity to significantly improve the quality of the processing liquid food product to ensure its long-term preservation without altering its nutritional and taste properties, can reduce energy consumption by 15% during the same capacity.

The above technical result is achieved in that the device for processing liquid infrared radiation contains the camera pasteurization, the source of infrared radiation, pipes for supplying and discharging liquid, a circulation pump, a heat exchanger-the heat exchanger and the temperature sensor. Luggage pasteurization is made of several modules interconnected in series or in parallel, or in combination by pipeline, with each module contains a working cylinder, in which is mounted a quartz tube with a gap for the flow of the treated fluid, not exceeding 2 mm, and the source of infrared radiation is inserted inside the quartz tube.

According to the tests the thickness of the gap or a layer of the treated fluid choose no more than 2 mm, based on the penetrating ability of the IR emitter.

The invention is illustrated by the drawing, which shows a functional flow chart of operation of the plant for processing liquid infrared radiation in a thin layer.

Installation for processing liquid infrared radiation in a thin layer includes a heat exchanger-the heat exchanger 9, the receiving tank 2, three-way valve 1, the supply line product 10, a nozzle for supplying a liquid 6, the module working cylinder (camera pasteurization) 3, IR emitter 5, the pipe outlet product 7, the temperature sensor 8, the circulation pump of the product 12, the supply pipeline of product 11, a quartz pipe 4.

Works as a modular unit for processing liquid infrared radiation in a thin layer as follows. Liquid food product is fed into a storage tank 2, from which by means of the circulation pump of the product 12 to the supply line product 10 is directed into the heat exchanger-recuperator 9, optionally heated, flows through the pipe for supplying the liquid 6 in the module of the working cylinder. Leaking internal volume between the working chamber and a quartz tube, the product is subjected to heat from a source of infrared radiation, is the CSO inside a quartz tube. Short-term non-contact exposure to IR-radiation of high density leads to rapid heating of the entire thickness of the layer of flowing fluid through the nozzle outlet 7 product pipeline enters the heat exchanger-the heat exchanger 9, giving part of a counter-flow heat. Verification of readiness of the product is carried out by the sensor 8, which controls the position of the three-way valve 1. If the product has been sufficiently heat treated, it is discharged into a ready reservoir of the finished product. Otherwise, the product is again supplied to the storage tank 2.
