Your milk project in the best of hands
Before the detailed planning begins, there are of course plenty of questions to be clarified first – and for all of these Milkron will join with you in finding the right answers. Thanks to our long years of experience in the dairy sector, we can support you in the following areas:
- Specifying process-technological preconditions, such as nominal pipe diameters, temperatures, flow rates and pressures, plus the type of treatment used for the dairy products concerned
- Optimising existing systems with special attention to energy-efficiency, minimised product losses, better raw material yields, and further utilisation of by-products, plus improving the intra-plant material flows
- Defining KPIs
- Assistance in developing new products
- Training for your operators
- Drawing up feasibility studies and tender documents
- Support during ongoing production
When it comes to planning a new factory or a new line, the project manager, together with his team, makes sure all your requirements have been clearly defined, and have already been incorporated in the rough planning. As the project proceeds and the detailed planning is progressed, we then of course keep a close eye on the big picture: you can rely on us, for example, to coordinate the job sections concerned with other vendors, or clarify technical questions with them.
Throughout the entire duration of the erection work, organisation on site is in the hands of our site manager. Together with his team, he sees to it that all quality standards and deadlines are already observed during the construction process.
During the entire development of the project, Milkron also takes care of the automation of your line. Thanks to our experience in the industry, we know all important manufacturers of automation software for the food industry. Therefore, we can adjust and expand all common programmings. Depending on the customer's requirements, we can use own programmings or resort to existing software solutions provided by manufacturers that are accepted in the industry.
Our team of process and automation engineers works hand in hand when it comes to achieving a perfect commissioning procedure. And that pays off for you – because we achieve short commissioning times so that you can start production as soon as possible.
After a successful conclusion, we hand over the entire project to you. However, we want your staff to be absolutely familiar with the machines and lines concerned. So we already involve your staff in the installation and commissioning procedures, in order to familiarise them properly right from the start.
Optimised support for your entire milk project
Spare parts packages and maintenance schedules
Service and after-sales activities play an important part in ensuring that your line will always give trouble-free operation even after commissioning. So we work out the suitable spare parts packages and maintenance schedules for your machines and lines in the development phase, thus maximising the availability of your production lines.
Concentrated Milkron expertise is also at your side when it comes to maintenance. Our experienced service engineers ensure a smooth procedure: we provide a maintenance service from a single source for heat exchangers, pumps and valves, as well as for the validation of meters – no matter whether the components have been supplied by our group or by third-party companies.
In order to make sure that after maintenance you will know exactly where work has been done, you will get a comprehensive documentation package, which will be a valuable aid, for example, during audits. At the same time, it will help you to identify optimisation potentials in the system, and in future to extend maintenance intervals wherever possible.
