Tetra Pak has launched a new in-line blender that helps dairy manufacturers improve consistency, ensure product quality and cut costs.
At the heart of the new Tetra Pak® In-line Blender D is a sophisticated automation platform that continuously collects data and controls the precision of blending.
“Ingredients for formulated products can be expensive. Precision of blending means consistent quality, less ingredient give-away and more cost savings for customers, and that is exactly what this new machine seeks to offer”, said Helen Sellar, Product Manager, Tetra Pak Dairy & Beverage Systems.
“Take the typical scenario of milk production with 3.0% fat. The new Tetra Pak In-line Blender D produces at a minimal variation of +/- 0.015 grams per 100 ml, down from the average 0.050 grams in a conventional system. With a production capacity of 20,000 litres per hour, operating 20 hours per day and 350 days per year, that alone means an annual saving of up to €180,000 for a manufacturer”, explained Sellar.
The Tetra Pak In-line Blender D handles the widest range of ingredients in the industry and can be customised to handle a variety of recipes, including flavoured milk, cheese milk, standardised milk for dairy powders, lactic acid drinks, condensed milk and liquid formulated products amongst others.
