Optimize your dairy processing

Ensure high quality dairy processing with accurate process control

Dairy production is a business with tight margins and high quality expectations. Milk processes can be optimized for cost control while keeping the product quality at a consistently high level. Thermal processing is of the utmost importance for dairy production, consumer safety and efficiency. The control of thermal processing is highly regulated and system must run at correct temperatures. Consider that running 2 degree Celsius over the setpoint can cost over 4000 Euro/year in wasted energy.

Our Offering

Endress+Hauser understands your challenges in demanding dairy production. We offer a complete basket of approved flow, level, temperature, pressure and analytical instruments designed and manufactured specifically for all global requirements for product safety and customer health in the food & beverage industry.

  • Ensure cleanability with compliance to 3-A, FDA and EHEDG standards and regulations

  • Reduced energy costs and downtimes

  • Industry-optimized, robust and reliable instrumentation

  • Seamless integration into any control platform


Fast temperature signals improve heating control

The critical control point for successful pasteurization control is temperature. Accuracy and response time ensure that no energy is wasted and the product is not exposed to more thermal stress than necessary.

Temperature sensors in pasteurization
Our expertise in the field

Endress+Hauser has invented the fastest temperature sensor for hygienic processes. This innovative technology helps you to improve quality and reduce cost. Furthermore, the combination of precise, fast and stable temperature measurement delivers the highest degree of process quality and reliable product quality.

  • Install our innovative temperature sensor iTHERM QuickSens and benefit from the shortest response times (t90 = 0.75 s) in the market.

  • Improve your temperature monitoring, which is critical to the UHT treatment of the nutrient solution by using iTHERM TM411 temperature sensor. In addition, you meet stringent quality demands.

  • Reduce risk and improve process safety in critical applications with the help of our self-calibrating temperature sensor iTHERM TrustSens.

Flow measurement in milk pasteurization

Accurate flow sensors ensure the right amount of heat is applied to achieve safe results.

Promag H in a dairy plant
Our expertise in the field

Electromagnetic flow-meters carry the main burden of flow measurement in dairy operations and play a critical role in milk heating.

  • Benefit from integrated temperature and conductivity measurement of Proline Promag H.

  • Ease maintenance and extend calibration intervals with Heartbeat verification and diagnostic functions.

Reliable level measurement

One of the more challenging applications in thermal processing systems is the level control of the balance tank. The small tank sees rapid level and temperature changes.

Our expertise in the field

Hydrostatic level sensor are ideal for this application, temperature compensated and with ranges down to 100mm H2O it sets the standard for reliability.

  • Use Deltapilot FMB50 with remote electronics. It also help you to reduce risk in the often harsh environment and cleaning cycles.

Differential pressure across heat exchanger

To ensure food safety, the differential pressure across the regeneration stage must be maintained. Stability and trust in measurement is key.
