Dairy processing will require machinery right from the beginning till the end product is ready for supply. In this blog, we will take a look at the important dairy processing machines.
Making low-fat, skim milk and cream will require separators. A cream separator can help a dairy farm in getting milk and cream of different fat percentages.
The texture and taste of the milk can be improved with the help of these machines. Homogenizers will break down the larger molecules and make the texture uniform.
These machines are very useful as they can help in producing butter and buttermilk. Both these products are popular among consumers. Buttermilk can be further processed by fermentation.
Preparation of cheese requires cheese presses as it will drain out all the liquid from the curd. Depending on the scale of operations, one can choose a cheese press.
In order to store products and even raw milk, a stainless steel milk tank is used. Pre-stack tanks, milk tanks, interim tanks and mixing tanks serve the purpose of milk and milk product storage. Producing high-quality, fresh and safe products will require quality milk tanks. A stainless steel milk tank will have an agitator to ensure that there is no formation of cream at the top.
Vat pasteurization is a process that can be fulfilled with the help of milk batch pasteurizer. In a batch pasteurizer, the milk is heated at 145 degree Fahrenheit. A batch pasteurizer has agitators to ensure a proper consistency and texture as well as rapid and even heating. The temperature of a milk batch pasteurizer should be ideal. This is because if the heating temperatures are too low, the milk product temperatures will not raise. At the same time, if the heating temperatures are too high, the product will start boiling.
Dairy processing machines are required in a dairy farm to maintain the quality of dairy products. While a stainless steel milk tank helps in storage, a milk batch pasteurizer will be required for pasteurization.
