Tunnel Pasteurizer

The Hermis tunnel pasteurizer was designed for the thermal treatment of beer and other beverages to be packaged in glass bottles or cans to increase the biological stability of products. Used in filling lines they ensure that the taste of products being bottled or canned is not altered. Automatic and semi-automatic machines are available.

Pasteurizer tunnels are made in the form of the tunnel that can fit the customer’s production area. Dimensions depend on the capacity, the required temperature, and container size, and it can be manufactured as a two-story unit.

Optional Extras

There are options for pasteurizers manufactured by Hermis JSC to be equipped with a system that enables disinfectant dosing, a container dryer, a pasteurization (PU) monitor, re-pasteurization protection system, and/or air conditioning in the control cabinet and other auxiliary equipment according to the requirements of the customer.


Steam, hot water or electric heaters can be used as the heat carrier for tunnel pasteurizers:

  • When steam is used as the heat carrier, the direct injection of steam into water or external heat exchangers is applied. The advantages of external heat exchangers are their efficiency (reduction of energy costs), ease of servicing and ease of maintenance.
  • When hot water is used as the heat carrier, the external heat exchangers or internal heaters in the basins may be used. External heat exchangers are more economical, easier to maintain, and they reach the desired temperatures more rapidly.
  • The use of electric heating elements requires the availability of sufficient electrical power for the equipment. If necessary, it is possible to use the variant with electric heaters together with steam or hot water.


The pasteurizers can be divided by the level of automation on:

Control system based on a Siemens S7-1200 controller:

  • Automatic temperature control
  • Registration of pasteurization parameters (temperature and time parameters)
  • Touch panel control
  • The possibility of configuration, memory, and a choice of settings for the pasteurization of different containers and the creation of “recipes”
  • The possibility of remote access via modem and the data transfer (Internet, Profibus, etc.)

Control system based on a Siemens Logo controller:

  • Automatic temperature control
  • Temperature registration
  • Conveyor speed control
  • The possibility of remote access via modem
