Simulation of a Continuous Thermal Sterilization (CTS) process is investigated for both laminar and turbulent flow regimes. Various heuristics are considered for the reliable estimation of sterility (F value) and quality (C value) parameters. It is proved that for a laminar condition that using a mixer at the entrance of the holding zone can drastically increase the sterility of food produce, while reducing its quality degradation. For a turbulent fow regime, the effect of trajectories and thermal resistances of solid particles on the performance of the CTS process is investigated. It is clearly shown that the thermal resistances of relatively large particles have a crucial effect on computed values of both sterility and quality parameters.
