Baumer has been a partner to leading international dairy groups as well as local artisan dairies for over three decades. We consider the conditions our sensors will encounter as early as the development and design phases. Vibrations inside pipes, as well as condensation formation due to cold production and heat during the sterilization process. Our focus is always on a hygienic design for effective and reliable cleaning, including for the production of yoghurt, cheese, butter and ice cream.
It all starts with the arrival of the raw milk. The efficiency of downstream processes can be evaluated properly only if the initial measurement was correct. Following transport, degassing has the important task of ensuring that downstream sensors can operate correctly. Optimally operating systems ensure accurate results, quick cooling and safe further processing of the milk.
The availability of the raw milk supply is the key to successful production planning. A reliable measuring signal is essential to preventing rejects being caused by excess material or even a production stoppage due to a material shortage.
Heat exchanger systems combine all requirements for precise measurement. The process should be reliable, effective against microorganisms, yet gentle without affecting product quality and as energy-efficient as possible. Critical control points meet operational excellence.
Filtration and membrane filtration systems are used for removing coarse particles or as an alternative to heat treatment. Ensuring the required pressures and flow rates requires the consumption of energy, which can be optimally used with the help of the right sensors.
The high energy consumption of a homogenizer pays off in the form of a more intense milk color and a nicer taste, especially when the process conditions such as flow rate, temperature and pressure conditions are stable.
Cleaning is one of the most important processes in the dairy. According to the Sinner’s circle, time, temperature, concentration and the mechanical system must be in harmony to guarantee product safety and quality. Efficient monitoring of the parameters also optimizes the costs for water, energy and cleaning agents and minimizes production time losses. This all starts with hygienically designed systems.
The increasing number of product variants and the rapid changes in demand are the challenges facing industrial and hygienic applications today. This calls for flexibility in the way systems are controlled. Key aspects are the adaptability of sensors during use and the reliable measurement of limit values. Using limit detection as an example, we will demonstrate how you too can efficiently control processes involving frequent media changes or adhesions and even implement a media differentiation function.
