For more than 3 decades, Baumer has been the partner of leading global dairy groups and traditional craft dairies. Right in the stage of sensor development and design we take into account the conditions our sensors will have to face. Pipeline vibration, condensation during cooled production as well as heat in the sterilization process - just to mention a few. Here, at all times a hygienic design allowing for efficient and safe cleaning is center stage when it comes to production of yogurt, cheese, butter, or ice cream.
It all starts with collecting the raw milk. The efficiency of every subsequent process can only be properly evaluated if input measurements were correct. After transport, degasification is vital and indispensable to make sure the sensors can do their job properly. Optimally running systems ensure good results, fast cooling and further safe milk processing.
Heat exchanger systems merge all requirements for accurate measurements. Safely effective against microorganisms but yet gentle without impairing product quality - the focus is on processes optimized under aspects of energy efficiency. Critical control points meet operational excellence.
Filtration and membrane systems are used to remove coarse particles or as an alternative to heat treatments. Ensuring the necessary pressures and flow rates requires energy, which can be optimally exploited with the help of the right sensors.
The high energy consumption of homogenizers pays off by a more intense milk color and better mouthfeel, especially when process conditions such as flow rate, temperature and pressure ratios can be kept stable.
Cleaning cycles are one of the most important processes in the dairy industry. According to the Sinner's Circle, time, temperature, concentration and mechanics must be right to ensure product safety and quality. Efficient parameter monitoring optimizes the costs for water, energy and cleaning agents while minimizing time loss in production in parallel. All starts with equipment in hygiene design.
Increasing product variants and sudden changes in demand are current challenges in industrial and hygienic applications. Meeting such demands calls for flexibility in installation control. The sensor's capability to adapt to the application requirements for measuring limit values is crucial. By the example of point level detection we are going to demonstrate how to keep frequent media changes and adherence safely under control and how to implement even media differentiation.
