What is Dairy Refrigeration.
The most commonly used refrigeration system used in milk cooling equipment for milk cooling centers is vapor compression refrigeration system. The basic refrigeration system is made up of a refrigerated bulk tank, a refrigeration compressor unit and an air-cooled condenser unit.
Why refrigeration is important in dairy?
The basic idea behind refrigeration is to slow down the activity of bacteria (which all food contains) so that it takes longer for the bacteria to spoil the food. For example, bacteria will spoil milk in two or three hours if the milk is left out on the kitchen counter at room temperature.
Refrigeration is a basic requirement for the processing and storage of milk and milk products as the majority of dairy products are perishable in nature. Immediate cooling of milk to about 2-3 ºC is very important to reduce the multiplications of micro-organisms and to get the low bacterial count in the milk and milk products.
Cold temperatures help food stay fresh longer. The basic idea behind refrigeration is to slow down the activity of bacteria (which all food contains) so that it takes longer for the bacteria to spoil the food. … Refrigeration and freezing are two of the most common forms of food preservation used today.
Refrigeration helps to retard bacterial development, thus ensuring that the producer gets a better price for his milk. Pasteurization and refrigeration together make milk safe.
