NDT-MRM Milk Reception Unit
The raw milk, delivered from farms, often contains on the average more than 6,2% of gas on the volume, consisting of oxygen (about 0,5%), nitrogen (about 1,3%) and carbon dioxides (about 4,4%).
This gas mix / the dissolved air is resulted often in inaccuracy of volume measurement of milk, scaling on heating surfaces in pasteurizers (contamination), to decrease in efficiency of degreasing of milk in separators, accuracy loss in automatic normalizers in a stream, by concentration of air in cream (causing inexact normalization on fat content), to scaling in heaters of cream, to premature knocking down of butter that leads to product yield reduction, sticking of free fat to covers of packings, decrease in stability of sour-milk products (serum expression). Various methods of deaeration are applied to the prevention of such undesirable effects influencing production and quality of dairy products.
MRU of the NDT company is made for the elimination of such adverse effect.
The module is constructed on a uniform frame of stainless steel and consists of the following main components:
• The Plate heat exchanger (can be established at any distance from the deaerator and the pump)
• Reception tank/deaerator
• Pump of pumping of milk, pipe and fitting
• The filter of rough cleaning in an entrance opening
• Temperature monitoring system
• Data collection system (date, time, code, litres/weight, temperature).
