The global provider of hygienic liquid process systems CPS, has recently completed the installation of a new pasteurisation system as part of a £5million project to develop the Duchy College Agri-food Innovation Food Centre in Cornwall.
An EU tender posted by the Cornwall College Group was won by CPS after it quoted a competitive price, which included guaranteed excellent customer service, after-sales care and maintenance costs.
CPS supplied the centre with a 500 litre per hour skid mounted pasteuriser together with two modified and reconditioned tanks, where the equipment is benefiting the college further by enabling it to work with SME dairy businesses.
The new pasteuriser was supplied complete with a packaged chilling plant and mobile vessels for raw and pasteurised products. It was designed primarily to process milk for bottling, cheese and yoghurt production and for pasteurising a variety of fruit juices.
With its high level of flexibility and expertise CPS was able to tailor the equipment to the college's specific requirements. Due to the plant having a wide variety of potential uses, the company designed the units with variable temperature profiles, holding times and flow rates making it as adaptable as possible.
Whilst Duchy College set up the Agri-food Innovation Food Centre to cater for higher education food technology programmes, it has also created a significant enterprise environment with small local businesses using the facilities for new product development.
Renowned for going the extra mile, CPS tested the equipment at its factory, which reduced the overall installation time at the college and it supplied specifically modified information about the machinery to the students at the college.
Jon Stephens, Head of Agri-food Innovation Service at Duchy College is very enthusiastic about the project and commends CPS for its professionalism and high level of workmanship.
He said: "The service from the sales and technical engineering teams was excellent. CPS has helped us to provide the physical infrastructure for teaching small businesses about new processes with easy to use and expertly designed machinery. The pasteuriser is ideal for training which has helped us to deliver improved working programmes."
Mr Stephens concluded: "CPS has a depth of knowledge that is valuable to anyone needing their equipment. I have already recommended them to another organisation – the flexibility and quality of the equipment and service is excellent."
