Why do you need Steam or hot water in your Dairy production
Here is a bit of information about Steam Boilers
Steam boilers or Hot water units are the most common system to provide the heating media for pasteurising or other thermal processes in a Dairy
Fossil fuel has up to now been a common energy source, but this can easily change to persistent energy, but the need for steam/hot water will remain in the Dairy-nature
Some technical information:
Boilers for low pressure: 1-15 bar — are often “gasses inside-tube” models.
Boilers for high pressure and high steam temperature are often “water-inside-tube” models.
Note: Ensure preventive maintenance is done and registered in the Logbook. High pressure and temperature are always dangerous
Future energy sources
The next generation will be much more aware of what they do to their planet, and many inventions will continue to show up as they have done since we started to cook our food.
So the author is not worried about the future energy resources but aware we must and can do things differently. In Scandinavian
Solar panels can produce electricity even in Winther. And as we have strong winds, wind turbines play a major role in our future supply of energy from the sea.
Sweden and Norway have their streams and waterfalls as a primary source of electricity supported by Solar panels and Wind turbines
Our Good Neighbors on Island can take advantage of a Vulcanian underground with plenty of hot water, and they are very clever to use that in their production.
Every country has their energy source. Sometimes, it needs development.
Steam has really been the workhorse in Industrial development, it’s only the source we use to make the steam there have been problematic, but it will pass.
