The Leckford Processing Dairy has selected Tetra Pak CPS to help with its ongoing improvement programme.

The programme is said to have enabled a 30 per cent reduction in time for unloading milk due to the replacement and upgrade of the Leckford Processing Dairy intake system.

The company, which is one of the main dairy suppliers to Waitrose, is also 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 improvement programme at the Leckford Processing Dairy 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 vessels and existing finished-milk vessels, together with rewiring 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.
