Tetra Pak unveils new in-line blender, the Tetra Pak In-line Blender D, which continuously collects data and controls the precision of blending.
“Ingredients for formulated products can be expensive,” said Helen Sellar, product manager, Tetra Pak Dairy & Beverage Systems.
“Precision of blending means consistent quality, less ingredient give-away and more cost savings for customers, and that is exactly what this new machine seeks to offer.”
“Take the typical scenario of milk production with 3.0% fat,” she says.
“The new Tetra Pak In-line Blender D produces at a minimal variation of +/- 0.015 grams per 100 ml, down from the average 0.050 grams in a conventional system.
“With a production capacity of 20,000 liters per hour, operating 20 hours per day and 350 days per year, that alone means an annual saving of up to €180,000 for a manufacturer.”
The machine handles the widest range of ingredients in the industry and can be customized to handle recipes including flavored milk, cheese milk, standardized milk for dairy powders, lactic acid drinks, condensed milk and liquid formulated products.
