Hydro Coolers | Sauces and Liquids

Exceeding customer expectations down under

The Brief

Following the successful installation and excellent performance of two pouch cooling systems previously supplied to their UK factories in 2019 & 2022 Lomax was the first choice for a sauce manufacturer in Melbourne Australia looking for a solution to replace an aging and poorly performing hydro cooling tunnel.


The Solution

Lomax Hydro Cooler offering a compact footprint and ultra energy efficient performance when compared to traditional inline water cooling tunnels.


The Lomax Hydro Cooler combined with a chilled water recirculating skid package offers a compact and efficient solution utilising low energy closed-loop cooling to supply a series of water spray bars & nozzles strategically located around the spiral conveyor to ensure optimised product cooling while using as little water & energy as possible.

This is achieved using variable flow rates, holding times, set points and other recipe driven features tailored to each individual product type.



The Lomax Hydro cooling solution also includes the following features:

  • Product drying at the cooler exit to remove excess moisture before packing.
  • Automated Clean in Place (‘CIP’) system.
  • Water treatment system to maintain water quality and reduce wastewater.


The Outcome

A compact, reliable and energy efficient solution offering the flexibility to suit the customers wide range of prodcut types, once again exceeding customer expectations.
