Food quality regulations require several parameters in the pasteurizer plant to be accurately recorded and the paper record/chart stored for several years. When the paper chart recorder and controller failed in the middle of a pasteurization run it resulted in the treatment process having to be stopped and the pasteurization process being put at risk.
Manufacturing organic soft cheese
Specializing in the manufacture of organic soft cheese, Somerset, UK based Daisy & Co regularly produces a range of special quality cheeses in batches to meet specific customer demands, using purpose-built equipment including a traditional pasteurizer set.
Daisy & Co had been using dedicated circular chart recorders for decades to trace and record process data such as hot and cold product temperatures and the heating medium temperature. However, due to the inherently humid and wet conditions of the dairy production environment, the instrument was showing signs of wear and needed to be either refurbished or replaced.
