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.

Nature has all the power we need

Steam has really been the workhorse in Industrial development. – Only the source we have used to make the steam have been problematic, but it will pass.
