Processing equipment for yogurt production
In the manufacture of many types of yogurt, gentle handling is key to maintaining the rich consistency of textures characteristic of the final product.
Pumping equipment plays a fundamental role in maintaining the correct texture and appearance of yogurt. Due to the design of rotary lobe and progressive cavity pump technologies, the pumps cause shear-thinning during transfer. The loss of viscosity due to shear means that expensive proteins may need to be added to maintain product quality.
Choosing the right processing technology
With their low shear, gentle handling, MasoSine Certa pumps are proven to help maintain yogurt viscosity, reducing the need for additives required to thicken the yogurt.
From a homogenised product, through the inoculation with starter cultures, flavour dosing and filling/packaging, leveraging the quality of our processing equipment can advance the efficiency of your yogurt process.
A versatile product portfolio
The dosing accuracy of Watson-Marlow pumps in fruit and flavour dosing ensures product consistency. With only the inner bore of the pump tube touching the product, peristaltic technology safeguards against contamination and ensures your flavour lines meet the latest food hygiene standards.
