Optimized milk homogenization – new methods for achieving longer shelf life while saving energy
This white paper describes new homogenization technologies that can make dairy operations more cost-effective, flexible and sustainable.
Building on knowledge of milk composition and milk behaviour, including the details of how milk flows through homogenization devices, we present tips and strategies for more efficient homogenization and longer shelf life for milk products.
We explain how to measure homogenization efficiency more rapidly and accurately than has been possible before, by shifting the emphasis from homogenization pressure to the actual effects of homogenization – the resulting size and distribution of fat globules.
The knowledge drawn from our laboratories – as well as our installed base of more than 7,000 homogenizers worldwide – can aid you in designing and operating white milk dairy lines, and specifying the products you produce and market.
