Boilers for the Dairies and Dairy Industry

The dairy processing industry involves the conversion of raw milk into:

  • Milks, buttermilks and creams
  • Ice cream
  • Cheese
  • Yoghurt
  • Fermented milk products
  • Butter
  • Otherwise modified forms of concentrated or dried milk

The equipment involved in the dairy processing industry is as varied as the products themselves and requires high efficiency heat provision and recuperation. It is very important to ensure operator safety and cost-effectiveness in the dairy industry.

One of the most important aspects to be considered in the dairy processing industry is the sterility of milk. Automated technological processes and the robustness equipment guarantee good quality products. A lot of research has also been conducted on this sector to develop the required technology to reduce the need for water and enable efficient recycling.

Product Recommendations

Babcock Wanson provides modern, high quality equipment suitable for different process technologies within the dairy industry. Babcock Wanson also proposes tailored-solutions to meet customer’s requirements.

Steam in the dairy and cheese industries is used for process heating and cleaning of the equipment (live steam). Babcock Wanson proposes high efficiency Steam Generators and Fire Tube Boilers to suit these applications.

Hot Water Boilers are also increasingly used, for example in pasteurising processes, as the closed loop nature of these systems combined with close temperature control provides efficient and effective operation without the complications of operating a steam based system.

Babcock Wanson can also provide various Water Treatment equipment that can help with sustaining this valuable resource. Babcock Wanson is at the fore-front of innovation to develop a more efficient equipment regarding water usage for the plant and at the same time to not discharge as much water through wastewater treatment plants.

The problems of deposits within steam plant are eliminated using suitable water treatment (softeners, demineralisation, deaerators and chemicals treatment).

Thermal Fluid Heaters combined with heat exchangers and Process air heaters (HTV-N) are also widely used in the drying process for milk powder production, the type of equipment to be used selected based on the dryer technology. The inherent safety and demonstrable quality of this equipment ensures compliance with food safety standards.
