Since 1990, JH Stålindustri has produced stainless steel tanks for dairy processing plants in Scandinavia. We mainly provide pressure free processing and cleaning tanks, but we have also produced a vast number of outdoor storage tanks that are still used in the dairy industry.
Our years of experience in the production of stainless-steel tanks has helped us become a trusted name in terms of sanitation. This is because we specialize in using stainless-steel, which is a hygienic material that comes at a reasonable price.
Stainless-steel is our favorite material to work with because it is easy to process and weld. At the same time, the welding can be polished and adjusted, so that they can meet the high sanitation requirements of the dairy industry. Our CIP process allows us to take the cleanliness of each tank to a whole new level.
In the food and dairy industry, it is crucial to maintain a sanitary environment to ensure the quality and cleanliness of the product. This is where a good Clean-in-place (CIP) system comes into play. CIP is a method of cleaning:
CIP er en metode til rengøring af:
- Sanitary process lines
- Equipment that is used in a processing plant
The CIP-Process works without having to remove or take apart tubes and equipment to do the cleaning. In the CIP-Process, a special kind of detergent, rinse aid and disinfection agent are pumped through the same tube lane as the products have been in order to remove any bacteria from the internal surfaces.
The CIP-Process is important part of guaranteeing the food quality in the dairy industry. The importance of cleaning between product transfers helps to minimizes potential pollution and will remove any products that do not meet the quality standards. The adherence of correct CIP – from design to validation – will ensure a consistently high product quality.
Among the advantages of installing CIP-Processes are:
- Minimizing errors: The automation of cleaning reduces the risk of human errors that can lead to an unsafe product
- Increases employee’s safety: Reduces chemical exposure by containing the detergent within the system
- More production time: When less production time is wasted for cleaning, more time is used to manufacture the product
- Product quality: reliable and automated cleaning means a sustainable product quality and a level of consistency in the product
- Resource savings: water and energy consumption are reduced significantly when you have a CIP-Process
JH Stålindustri calculates and manufactures agitators that meet the requirements needed for stirring in the specific product. For example, our agitators are great for processing milk, cream, sour milk products or other dairy products.
Simple Module Construction
With our unique, flexible, and modular design, each agitator makes it possible for us to customize a solution according to your needs. Our design of agitators includes top mounted or side mounted units.
Our agitator’s performance is designed to follow the highest standards of cleanliness and gentleness towards their product. All our agitators are made for use in hygienic processes, and our custom-built agitators have a smooth surface which creates the optimal flow for the specific product.
Supreme performance and energy efficiency are the main highlights of our agitators. Based on our comprehensive fluid and dynamics research, the pumping wheel is designed with a unique form cutting ability.
As a result, our pumping wheel is significantly more efficient than those with a standard inclination. This also helps to reduce the energy consumption as well as the amount of heat absorbed by your product. This can contribute to even further savings if subsequent cooling is necessary.
We can construct processing tanks for the dairy industry that vary in sizes. These tanks can be anywhere from 50 liters all the way up to 40,000 liters and are mainly used in the production of:
- Ice cream
- Baby food
- Pulverized milk
For these products there is often a need for heating and/or cooling of the product inside the tank. To account for this, an exterior thermal cape is welded onto the product wrap.
If you are unsure of how this works, JH Stålindustri can help calculate the cape area. This is calculated based on which production line the process tank will be a part of. The tanks are usually made with acid-resistant steel EN 1,4404 (316) and covered with EN 1,4301 (304) on the outside.
JH Stålindustri relies on our many years of experience in the dairy industry to guide and advise our clients on how to find the right tank for your production line. As a result, you get a process tanks that creates an exceptional amount of value for your production line.
Indoor tanks will always be covered with a fully welded stainless-steel cape. Outdoor tanks will often be storage tanks that are larger than 80 meters cubed and will also be a minimum of 8 to 10 meters in height. This makes it necessary to have the essential service equipment on the top.
As a result, the tank will be insulated and covered with a fully welded stainless-steel top that is possible to walk on. This top will contain non-slip painting, railings, and ramps to provide security for those that need to access it.
Any product manufactured by us will come with a complete set of documentation. This will include material certificates, welding procedures, manufacturing procedures, material traceability, and more.
