Separating and Compacting Dairy Products

Separation and Compaction of Dairy Products

Dairies need to destroy the returned goods such as yogurt and other dairy products with expired date and faulty manufacture.

RUNI screw compactor handles both emptying, compacting and destruction, in one process, continuously, and both handling and storage at the manufacturer is hereby saved. It increases the certainty of destruction and saves transport cost to place the compactor close to the production.

Separating and Compacting Dairy Products with Screw Compactor Solution

During the separation process with screw compactor, the waste stream is split into two parts. The liquid can either be diverted as waste water or it can be collected and afterwards sold for other purposes like for example energy production or for animal feeding. The solid material; the plastic packaging from dairy products, is so dry after the screw compactor that it can either go to incineration at a lower cost or it can be sold for further recycling.

The dairy products can be fed into the machine manually or by use of a conveyor belt. The liquid is pressed out through a suitable perforated matrix and the solid part from the packaging is slowly pushed out of the screw compactor through the departure tray, and can here be collected in containers. 

RUNI SK370 for Dairy Products

The SK370 is well fit for separating and compacting dairy products. It has a capacity of 5,000 kg/hour, and achieves approx. 300kg/m3 when compacting plastic containers, and approx. 500 kg/m3 when compacting cartons/Tetra paks. 

The hole matrix is always made out of stainless steel (AISI316) which makes it able to resist low ph values that are found in many liquids and dairy products.

In the food industry the machine has to be be isolated from the main production. RUNI has different solutions for this adaption. Demands regarding cleaning of the machine may also be an issue - again RUNI has various solutions for this.
