Tetra Pak CPS Is a Pipe Dream for Dairy
1st September 2009
A glowing reputation for delivering a prompt professional service and a long standing relationship has secured the leading UK provider of quality capital equipment, Tetra Pak CPS, another order from the Processing Dairy at Leckford, the Waitrose Farm, Waitrose's own 'on-farm' milk processing and bottling facility.
The Leckford Processing Dairy turned to the Sherborne based company to help with its ongoing improvement programme, which has resulted in a 30% reduction in time for unloading milk due to the replacement and upgrade of their intake system.
In addition the dairy is now benefiting from greater temperature control for both raw and finished products, improved storage conditions and better management of its cream pasteuriser.
The full scope of The Leckford Processing Dairy's improvement programme included the improved control of storage conditions for raw products, the renovation of milk tanks, upgrading of the cooling system, pasteuriser and chilling control and the supply and installation of a new chilling plant.
Extensive pipework modifications were required to connect cooling water onto the refurbished raw milk and existing finished milk vessels, together with re-wiring of these items. The Tetra Pak CPS engineering team also upgraded the existing PLC and modified the software to provide a 'turnkey' solution.
All of this work was completed in a six week timescale with the installation and commissioning being carried out in a four day window encompassing a weekend to minimise disruption to production.
Whether the project is large or small, Tetra Pak CPS provides the same high quality level of service and is renowned worldwide for its industry knowledge, flexible approach and ability to provide a rapid response when required.
Commenting on this latest project, Tetra Pak CPS Project Engineer, Matt Fryer said: "Tetra Pak CPS has been fabricating in stainless steel for over 60 years and has the breadth of experience and expertise that was required from The Leckford Processing Dairy when the initial dairy upgrade was carried out in 2001.
"Since then Tetra Pak CPS has maintained a very close working relationship with The Leckford Processing Dairy and has helped it to develop the site to increase capacity and production by carrying out a wide range of projects, consistently putting the customer's requirements first and working out ways of helping them to achieve their goals. We look forward to working with the dairy for many years to come."
