​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Membrane filtration solutions for dairy and plant based products​

Membrane filtration is the natural way to optimize the value of dairy and plant based products and to reuse water. The technology is used for creating fermented products such as​ skyr and Greek yogurt, whey proteins for infant, sports, and senior nutrition, for concentrating plant based proteins – and for recovering water from milk and fruits to be used in the production process instead of letting the excess water go to drain, just to mention a few.

Let membrane filtration be your game changer

Do you want to create new foods and beverages, while increasing the yield of your raw materials?

Or would you like to enhance product quality, increase production flexibility, and reduce the environmental impact of your operation?

Membrane filtration can solve these challenges.

Product Development Centre for filtration solutions

Do you want to explore new product ideas within milk and plant based products and find a sustainable competitive advantage?

Our Product Development Centre provides a unique platform for dairies, food producers, and beverage-makers to develop next generation products or optimize production processes to meet customer needs. Whether you’re a start-up or a global brand, we can help you bring your new products to market.

We offer both onsite as well as virtual testing.

High-protein dairy products – here is the way to produce them

Dairies around the world use Tetra Pak’s membrane filtration systems due to these benefits:
  • Increased yield
  • The system can be scaled to meet growing demand - and produce new types of products
  • Excess water from milk concentration can be recovered and used in all the production processes - i.e less freshwater consumption and wastewater management

You can rent a pilot plant to get started. The largest team of membrane filtration specialists in the business will be happy to help you!

The basics on filtration technology

A liquid contains a number of dissolved or dispersed components of different molecular or particle sizes. By using membranes with pores of different sizes, it is possible to separate exactly the components you wish into separate liquid streams.

Membrane types

The heart in any membrane filtration process is the membrane itself, and choosing the best membrane for a given process is often a complex task. Membrane type, system design, and processing parameters should be carefully matched to meet the desired performance and cost-efficiency of the overall process.

Membrane tools

Improve the work environment for your employees, troubleshoot your membrane filtration system, and boost its performance.
We offer a number of easy-to-use tools and systems for installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting.

FILTRATION APPLICATIONS

Milk pouring into glass

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Filtration solutions for liquid milk

Membrane filtration plays a major role in milk processing. Apart from normal fat standardised pasteurised drinking milk it is used for nearly all dairy products

Whey powder in cup

​​​​​​​​​​​Filtration solutions for whey

One of the most common applications of membrane filtration in the dairy industry is the treatment of whey from cheese manufacturer.

Yoghurt with blueberries

Filtration solutions for concentrated fermented dairy products

The ultrafiltration membrane separates the skimmed milk into two streams, allowing water, dissolved salts, lactose, and acids to pass through

Milk and Whey

Filtration solutions for ​​​milk and whey based ingredients​

Membrane technology is used in the production of bulk and specialty products like WPC/WPI, MPC/MPI, MCC/MCI, Lactoferrin, high-fat, demineralised whey and more

White cheese

Filtration solutions for high cheese yield and quality​

Microfiltration removes impurities and harmful microorganisms from the cheese brine swiftly and efficiently while preserving the natural chemical balance

Water splashing

Filtration solutions for water

Driven by our strong focus on sustainability, protection of the environment, and reuse of natural resources, we have developed a number of innovative membrane-based solutions, which reduce the environmental footprint of the food industry.

plant-based beverages

Filtration solutions for plant-based foods and drinks

Membrane filtration is used in the dairy industry to create high-protein products and powder. For plant-based products possibilities are virtually unlimited.
