Low noise separators – hearing is believing

Investing in a low-noise separator will improve the working environment in your plant and also deliver an added bonus in the form of lower energy consumption. Find out how choosing a separator that is easy on the ear also cuts operating costs.

Noise is an occupational hazard for dairies worldwide. Because they rotate at such high speeds, separators have the potential to contribute to that noise. Tetra Pak’s low-noise separators avoid that pitfall thanks to a unique water-filled insulation shell that radically dampens the decibels emitted by the machine.

A low-noise separator reduces overall noise load and thus indirectly enables plant operators and engineers to spend longer periods on the factory floor if necessary.

“If you’re exposed to a lot of noise it wears you down and makes you tired – and tired people make mistakes. Health and safety are key considerations in all markets today, so this is something to consider when investing in a new separator,” says Åke Ölund, Development Manager, Tetra Pak.

“With a Tetra Pak separator you don’t have to worry about noise and its effects, and that is something that makes us stand out from our competitors. We’re very proud about that.”

Tetra Pak separators come equipped with a stainless steel insulation “skin” filled with water. The skin combined with the water substantially cut the number of decibels a separator emits when in full operation.

The shell also cuts energy consumption by dispersing heat and keeping the separator cool, reducing the need to cool the dairy environment.
