Abstract

See full text

This invention relates to a process for reducing the temperature of an effluent stream flowing out of a sterilization chamber. The process involves the use of a mixing tank and heat exchangers which provide for cooling the effluent to a temperature required by local drain or sewer requirements (e.g., below about 60° C.) while saving on the amount of cooling water needed to cool the effluent.
