Used Tetra Pak Disc Separator HMRPX 614HGV-74C
Disc Separator HMRPX 614HGV-74C Applications
This separator is mainly used for hot milk skimming separation. The objective is to separate the globular milk fat from the serum, the skim milk. The separation process is normally incorporated into a pasteurization line and combined with a in-line fat standardization system. Outgoing cream from separators can contain up to 70 % fat.
The skimming efficiency of hot milk separators has been enhanced. In a modern dairy, common skimming efficiency figures are in the range of 0.045 – 0.06 %.

Cleaning of Disc Separator HMRPX 614HGV-74C
There is a risk for burning on and sedimentation of protein inside the bowl at separation temperatures above 65 (not recommended), or if the centrifuge has been idling with product. These product residues can be very hard to get rid of by normal cleaning procedures.
A normal cleaning starts with a thorough rinsing with cool water (the colder the better) to make protein residue easier to remove, followed by lye, a second rinsing, acid and the final rinsing and cooling. See our general recommendation for concentrations, temperatures and duration of lye and acid cleaning.
