Milmeq custom designs systems to optimise chilling, freezing and materials handling for dairy processing operations.
Our industry-leading chilling and freezing tunnels have been deployed in dairy processing operations around the globe, delivering improvements in operational efficiencies as well as product quality.
The Milmeq Fully Automated Stock Transfer (MFAST) system was recently launched as the first of its kind, offering superior efficiency in materials handling operations, use of space and quality of product.
The following systems and equipment have been developed to enhance processing operations within the dairy industry.
Collaboration with the cheese producing industry on the newly adopted hot formed cheese block tower making process resulted in the development of the MILMEQ® Cheese Cooling Tunnel, then known as the Realcold Rapid Chiller, during the 1970s.
The Milmeq Cheese Cooling Tunnel provides a true first in, first out, 24-hour cooling cycle for cheese that ensures product quality, colour and flavour are maintained.
Our tunnels employ an air blast based system that provides uniformed conditioning to chill product. Application of very low temperature airflow in a controlled environment enables a fast chill, which can avoid bitter flavours developing in the cheese.
Milmeq tunnels allow control over air temperature, air velocity and retention time, meaning they can be custom designed to handle any product in a carton, box, case, mould, crate or plastic liner.
Interfacing conveyor systems provide completely automatic, hands-free loading and unloading of product, precisely timed to achieve the desired temperature. Eliminating manual handling preserves product quality and reduces the incidence of injury through strain.
Milmeq cheese cooling tunnels are suitable for chilling a range of cheese products, including block cheese (such as cheddar), mozzarella and cream cheese.
