A collection of project for Edgecumbe

The challenge

Our client wanted a new milk separation line for casein skim milk production.

The Solution

We installed a new 35 m3/h milk treatment system and reconfigured the factory CIP systems so the new and existing milk treatment lines got cleaned on a single-use basis.



Process

MILK TREATMENT

Key Processes Implemented


  • Milk separation – full skimming
  • NZCP7-compliant skim pasteurisation (dual plate method)
  • Skim deaeration

The challenge

An existing AMF plant required a capacity upgrade, and a fix for cloudy AMF problems.



The Solution

We replaced the existing AMF separator with a high capacity separator to attain the throughput and high clarity required.



Process

AMF

Key Processes Implemented


  • AMF neutralisation and polishing system
  • AMF separation

The challenge

To provide electrical and automation installation for a fat fractionation process.



The Solution

We worked with our client’s technical and production staff to develop a system for crystallisation and solid/liquid separation, and expanded the plant capacity in three stages.



Process

FAT FRACTIONATION

Key Processes Implemented


  • Automation
  • Functional description development

The challenge

Bay Milk Products wanted to relocate and upgrade their ammix butter operation from Te Puke.



The Solution

We installed a small AMF plant, oil and AMF reception and storage systems, four complete mixing, texturising and packing lines including liquid fill, bag-in-box, butter sheets, bulk butter packers, drum filling and two robot palletisers.



Process

BUTTER

Key Processes Implemented


  • AMF process
  • Anhydrous and aqueous liquid ingredient handling including trace heating and projectile purging of pipework
  • Batch kitchens for mix preparations
  • Filling systems
  • Frozen butter rework system
  • Materials handling
  • Product recovery systems
  • Salt and sugar ingredient handling systems
  • Texturising using scraped surface heat exchangers

The challenge

Our client operated two 70 m3/h acid casein plants using wash towers, and was experiencing floating curd and bug problems, long CIP turnaround, and excessive wash water use.



The Solution

We installed two 5-stage counter-current tubular washing system to replace the towers, reducing plant turnaround by 2 hours and halving wash water use. Floating curd problems were also eliminated.



Process

CASEIN

Key Processes Implemented


  • Counter current tube wash process
  • Low velocity cooking
