In the food and beverage industry, compressed air is often used in a wide range of applications, dairy processing included. When it comes to dairy processing, milking cows by machine has become a common practice. Those machines are used for milk transportation, positioning container lids, and more. Contamination from compressed air is a major source of concern and that’s why it has to be dry, clean, and free of contaminants to ensure a smooth production. At Airtech Vacuum Incorporated, we carry a top-notch range of vacuums and blowers that can be installed into milking systems.
About the Milking Systems (Dairy Processing) Industry
Oftentimes, milking procedures must be completed within two hours. Industrial vacuum pumps are often chosen for the job. The type of machine that will be used depends on the number of cows that need to be milked. Vacuum pumps are not only used to transport the milk, but also to attach the udder as well as secure the milking claw assembly to the teat, at the correct pressure. Today, oil free vacuum pumps are the preferred choice as they offer significant advantages over their oil-lubricated counterparts. The former is more tolerant of carryover and require minimal maintenance. Another way of transporting and processing the milk is through the use of regenerative blowers.
When it comes to processing other dairy products such as yoghurt, vacuum pumps are installed into yoghurt filling machines to accurately position the lids on multiple yoghurt containers (pre-filled) simultaneously, i.e. suction cups on the machine will grip the lids tightly, separate them, and finally move them into the correct positions.
