Chamber pasteurizers

Chamber or batch processing

Cutting-edge energy and control technology combined with low purchase and installation costs make your decision for a RICO chamber pasteurizer easy.

The fully automatic process control can be adapted effortlessly to the different process parameters of a variety of products and at the same time allows for the documentation of process data.

Energetically highly efficient thermal insulation ensures a large, usable interior volume despite small external dimensions and noticeably reduces operating costs.


Standard configuration:

(for 1-12 pallets per throughput):

  • Stainless steel design
  • Statistical data recorder
  • Several retrievable pasteurization programmes
  • Temperature measurements inside
    the bottle incl. a digital display
  • Residual steam blowout
  • Throughput time: 40-50 minutes
  • Pasteurization data recording to a USB storage device and the customer’s network



  • Lift gate
  • Available as a continuous throughput system for increased outputs with pallet feed and discharge conveyors
  • Version with heavy-duty castors
  • Flexible steam line
  • Special version for outdoor installation
