    Abstract

    A product being pressurized will heat up due to compressive heating. Due to heat transfer, products close to the vessel wall will cool down, a process which may result in a non-homogeneous product temperature profile in radial direction. If the proper technological features are implemented these heat losses may be reduced significantly. Such an adiabatic-isobaric process increases the economic feasibility of the high pressure process and minimizes product damage due to a small temperature-time integral.
