1. The Cost Of Spilled Milk: Analyzing Product Loss In The Dairy Industry

    The international dairy industry accepts a “standard” lost product figure of 2-3 percent annually. Even with these low percentages, the loss can be very high in monetary terms. The cost of spilled milk is definitely worth shedding some tears. This article explains how to monitor and control product loss in the dairy industry.

  2. How Advanced Online Instrumentation Helps Food Processors Lower DAF Systems’ Costs

    Many food processors use dissolved air flotation (DAF) to remove fats, oils, and grease (FOG) and suspended solids from their wastewater streams. Advanced online instrumentation provides continuous, real time suspended solids measurement in DAF operations, which automates and optimizes polymer and coagulant feed regardless of wide load variations. The result: potential polymer savings of 20 to 30 percent.

  3. Greencore Foods Saves Time And Money With Waste Water Treatment Solution

    As a maker of cooking sauces, pickles, dips, and soft drinks, Greencore Foods has become a significant player in the food processing industry. However, the company’s effluent from food manufacturing contains an array of inorganic salts and organic components which enter the waste stream in part from the intense wash-down of processing tanks and lines during clean-inplace (CIP) procedures for product changeover. This article explains how the company overcame the challenges of managing its waste water treatment at its Selby, U.K. plant.

  4. Tips To Improve Contaminant Detection In The Dairy Industry

    While each process in the dairy industry starts with the same primary ingredient — milk — the end products, processes, and packaging vary greatly in terms of the best solutions for contaminant detection. The further the milk is processed, the higher the risk is of contaminants entering the production stream. This article offers guidance for detecting those contaminants in dairy products at every stage of production.
