Enhanced standardization unit for dairy processors
Tetra Pak, Vernon Hills, Ill., released a new version of the Tetra Pak Standardization unit, helping dairy manufacturers produce products with optimal fat content.
To produce milk with a specific percentage of fat content, an important step in dairy production is to separate fat from milk. Fat is then added back to the product according to the required specification through a process called standardization.
Designed for automatic in-line standardization, this new unit enables manufacturers to reduce the variation of so-called “cream giveaway” from the previous +/- 0.020% to +/- 0.015%.
The unit is capable of handling a wide variety of dairy products such as white milk, cheese milk, milk powder, fortified milk and flavored milk at a capacity of up to 75,000 liters per hour.
