Liquid milk, milk powder, condensed milk, butterfat, cheese, and other dairy products fall under this category. Distinct types of dairy products may have different manufacturing processes. The inbound filtration process, RO pre-filtration process, raw milk filtration process, vent/air filtration process, ingredient filtration process, and steam filtration process are the key filtration procedures in the dairy product manufacturing process.
1st INCOMING WATER FILTRATION PROCESS:The water used to clean the system's pipes, create steam for boilers, and provide cooling for heat exchangers is commonly municipal or well water in the dairy product manufacturing process. Contaminants in the water, such as rust and dirt, will shorten the system's service life, hence a filtering system to purify the incoming water is required. Filtration equipment favours Stainless Steel Cartridge Filter Housings, whereas filtration consumables favour High Flow Filters and Melt Blown Cartridges with a 25-micron rating.
2ND RO PRE-FILTRATION PROCESS: Pure water filtered using a recycled water system can be utilised as process water for dairy products including curd production, brine rinsing, SIP/CIP, and so on. Because larger particles in the water can clog the reverse osmosis system and shorten its lifespan, a pre-filtration system made up of stainless-steel Cartridge Filter Housings and High Flow Cartridges with a micron rating of 1 micron is commonly used to pre-treat the reverse osmosis system's influent water.
3RD RAW MILK FILTRATION PROCESS: Since rust, dirt, and numerous organic and inorganic particles contaminate raw milk during processing and shipping. These contaminants will lower the quality of raw milk, which will then taint the cheese, yoghurt, and other dairy products production processes. As a result, a filtration system must be installed to purify the contaminants. Sanitary Stainless Steel Cartridge Filter Housings are commonly used in filtration systems, while PP Pleated Filters with a 10-micron rating are commonly used as filter consumables.
4TH VENT FILTRATION PROCESS: As yoghurt and cleaning liquid are pumped out of the storage tank, steam condenses or the temperature changes, the storage tank must be replenished with air to avoid collapsing. At the same time, a vent filtration system will be built to prevent air pollutants from entering the storage tank. An air filtration system will be implemented to cleanse air contaminants, since moisture removal in shipping, packaging, and other equipment and process systems demands sterile air.
5TH INGREDIENT FILTRATION PROCESS: After the water pre-filtration system, a sterilising filtration system will be put in the yoghurt production process. It is primarily utilised to provide sterile clean water for the manufacturing process in order to clear the yoghurt residue and germs that have accumulated in the line.
6TH STEAM FILTRATION PROCESS:The steam filtering system is used in the manufacture of dairy products to produce clean steam for the SIP/CIP system, heat exchange system, curd production system, brine rinsing system, and fruit filling and packaging, decreasing system wear and tear and extending its service life.
NETSOL WATER SOLUTIONS offers the filtering process system in the dairy products manufacturing process to meet the specific needs of the manufacturing process.
