New Plant for Sterilization of Whey Cream

A Norwegian cheese factory assigned Aquatic® Food Factory for the engineering, 3D design, installation and startup of a new pasteurizing unit for sterilization, and a tank unit for buffering of whey cream. A line for delivery of whey cream to a truck was also included.

Whey cream is a product where high temperature pasteurization is needed to ensure that the product does not contain bacteria spores. We pasteurize at 121 °C with a holding time of 5 seconds.

Our Challenge

Whey cream can be used in cheese instead of milk cream in order to save the milk cream to production of butter and cream, and it is good use of raw material to invest in such a technical solution.

The Solution

The least difficult way to sterilize this particular product is by rotating scrape heat exchangers, but such heat exchangers double the investment. We succeeded in designing a functional plant using plate heat exchangers instead.

The Team Effort

Our delivery included 3D design, pre-fabrication in workshop, delivery to the plant, mechanical installation work, test/commissioning of the plant, documentation and training of operators.
