Pump Installation

Some practical thought to do if you need a pump installation

  • Suction and delivery lines
  • Flow rate
  • Viscosity to be pumped
  • Density
  • Temperature
  • 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.
