Some practical thought to do if you need a pump installation
- Suction and delivery lines
- Flow rate
- Viscosity to be pumped
- Pressure in system
- Material in pump
Typical Milk Pumps are Centrifugal Pumps — Liquid Ring Pumps or Positive Displacement Pumps
It is difficult to build a Dairy without pumps, but it can be done.
If the milk can flow by gravity or you can pour up by hand, the pasteurising can take place in a Batch, just like cheese making in the Alps — No problem.
This is mentioned to encourage you to alternative thinking when you plan your Dairy or your next product, as Mejeriet are natural-born sparring partners for you in the project.
- Diaphragm pump — Very gentle for e.g. Cheese curd — Air operated
- Peristaltic pump – Very gentle & precise — Often used in Laboratory
There are of course many more Special pumps — Please ask.
