Grundfos' range of sanitary pumps is ideal in cheese production applications where the handling of highly viscous liquid is the challenge. Throughout the process – from milk reception to packing – the handling is carried out with great precision and care, ensuring that your final product is one of high quality.
Milk reception: In by far the majority of dairies the milk is transported from the milk tanker into the tanks using a single-stage centrifugal pump. If higher pressure is required, a multi-stage pump is available. In order to completely empty the milk tanker, a single-stage priming pump, creating vacuum on its own, can be supplied.
Milk treatment: During the treatment process single-stage centrifugal pumps transport the milk from one tank to the next, while an end-suction pump enables quick heating of the milk to kill all bacteria – and an equally quick cooling process. A speedy pasteurisation is crucial in order to protect the flavour of the milk.
Process: In cheese productions, the pumps must be able to handle highly viscous liquid. Grundfos’ lobe pumps have been developed to do just that – and to do it with great care in order to maintain the defined texture of the cheese.
|In delicate textures, such as cottage cheese it is important that the characteristics of the cheese are not ruined.||Grundfos’ pump with open impeller is ideal for very gentle treatment of delicate liquid.|
|In the production of semi-hard cheese the liquid becomes increasingly viscous.||Grundfos' lobe pumps have been developed to handle highly viscous liquid – and to do it with great care in order to maintain the defined texture of the cheese.|

|Maximum hygiene is essential in all dairies. Particularly in cheese production, it is important to ensure that every single remain of creamy cheese is washed out.||All Grundfos' sanitary pumps are CIP- compatible, allowing tanks, pipes and process lines to be efficiently cleaned without having to dismantle the equipment. Precise dosing pumps speed up the CIP-process by adding only the necessary detergent, consequently reducing the flushing of the system. Every CIP-system is followed by a single-stage priming pump that removes every last drop of detergent in tanks and pipes by circulating rinsing water. A CIP-system can also be applied to the milk tanker to allow easy and 100% reliable cleaning of the inside of the tank.|
- All Grundfos’ sanitary pumps carry the EHEDG certificate. Certain models also carry the 3A certificate.
- Choose SiC/SiC mechanical shaft seals if the oxidizing disinfection agents could potentially cause corrosion.
- In soft cheese productions, a SiC/SiC mechanical shaft seal is suitable for the salt bath.
