Milk powder and milk derivatives such as milk serum are often very highly processed products that require special treatment during processing. Spray-dried milk powders lose their instant properties when conveyed with classical lean phase systems. Highly fat-enriched milk powders leave a fat coating in the pipe, which affects the quality of the end product and also involves hygienic risks.
Gericke has implemented dense phase conveying systems in various projects; they represent a reliable and accepted solution for conveying technically highly developed milk powders and milk powder derivatives. Customers confirm that the Gericke systems increase production efficiency with higher process quality and reduce stress on the product during the conveying process compared to conventional systems.
The advantages Gericke brings to the food and dairy industry are:
- high loading – less air required for conveying
- lower conveying speed – reduced damage to product
- low conveying speed – reduces or completely eliminates fat deposits in the conveying pipe
- less cleaning required
