Separation of Cream and Skim milk is amazingly simple.

The author has in Switzerland  been working  with a method where fresh milk is filled into a vat, not deep, but with a large surface. When milk was left nice and cold  overnight we could skim the necessary cream off in the morning with a special sweeper, like the one to the right

Back to industrial scale

Mejeriet think the Dairy Industry around the World should send a lot of friendly thoughts to the Swedish Engineer Gustav de Laval who developed the continuously cream separator and thereby starting the Dairy development in many countries. The Danish Butter brand — Lurpak — Is a spin-off from this development

The Centrifuge or Separator is used in almost any industry where liquid need to be separated from something else e.g. oil from water, or getting rid of impurities

In the Dairy business, we also make use of a special Centrifuge, called Bactofuge to get rid of microorganisms in the milkge spoon in the morning.

Do you need a Separator-- Mejeriet can provide you with the components to set up an efficient flow line

Based on the ID numbers below. Mejeriet shall be pleased to quote you the equipment you need.

Separators can do countless jobs.

16.01 — Manual cleaned Separators. Capacity starting at 100 Lt/h

16.02 — Self-cleaning Separators. Capacity starting at  2.000 Lt/h

16.03 — Milk Standardiser is an electronic add-on device there can re-mix cream & skim milk to standardise the fat content in the processed milk.

Separators are used in many industries for solids ejection of unwanted sediments in the liquid, in milk, it can be hair, dead cells, dust, etc.

The person to the right illustrates separating by G force, which is exactly what happens in a Separator.
