Optimal utilization of production raw materials
– safe, profitable, compliant with regulations
One of the most efficient and modern dairy companies in Germany converts milk into milk powder. The milk can thus be stored and transported and can also be produced in different qualities. The spectrum ranges from skim milk powder to whole milk powder. The high-quality milk is processed into top-quality milk powder in special drying towers. Here, the company faces two major challenges: first, there is a high risk of explosion in the drying tower. If a certain temperature limit is exceeded, CO2 must be fed into the system immediately. Second, food production regulations stipulate that the plant must be regularly cleaned at strict intervals to prevent the development and spread of bacteria. This is particularly true here, as milk powder is also used to produce baby food.
In order to completely eliminate risks and errors, in the future, the control and monitoring of the plant will be automated rather than carried out by people.
