The article deals with the problems of development of energy-efficient technical means for heat supply of agricultural objects. Shown the energy-efficient method of heat treatment of liquid products using infrared (IR) and ultraviolet (UV) spectrum of electromagnetic waves. Much attention is drawn to method of electrical and structural calculation of pasteurization chamber for infrared radiators of coaxial type is developed. Data are given about the parameters and modes of operation of the combined installation at the influence of UV and IR radiation on the properties of milk, to reduce bacterial contamination.
