Pilot plants for dairy and plant-based applications​

Pilot plants are ideal for developing new  products, testing of altered process parameters, new concentration levels, ­different membrane types, for making product samples to be used in consumer tests, etc.

You can test all the various filtration processes and almost any application: concentration and/or separation incl. diafiltration, bacterial & spore removal, etc. performed on milk and plant-based raw materials such as fermented milk, sweet or sour whey, MF/UF/NF/RO permeates, condensate, cheese brine, coconut water, rapeseed, etc.

When you rent a pilot plant, we ship it to your site, where you can perform the tests on your own raw materials, with your staff, and your own packaging options. This ensures valid small-scale testing results, which can easily be converted to industrial scale production.

We offer different types of easy-to-use pilot plants for rental:

Pilot plant types

Test in Tetra Pak Filtration Solutions’ Product Development Centre or pilot plant rental?

Food producers are launching new products based on dairy, plant-based and alternative ingredients at a high pace to match consumer trends. What is most optimal: testing at Tetra Pak or renting a pilot plant?

The key to success with product development is knowledge about the pre-treatment of the raw materials and about how the individual components of the raw material are separated with the greatest possible precision to be combined into new foods. Membrane filtration plays the main role in these processes.
