Cups of yogurt travel down conveyors toward tray packagers or cartoners to be stacked on pallets and stored in a refrigerated warehouse. All of these steps serve to protect the product. This package-handling machinery is also a source of energy that dairy processors can recover and redeploy elsewhere in the plant.
The 2017 Pack Expo gives dairy processors information on the latest packaging and processing trends and innovations.

Waukesha Cherry-Burrell has developed an advanced PMO design to maximize production time and cleaning flexibility. The W75CP is a double-seat PMO mix proof valve for dairy applications suitable for safe separation of product from CIP solution including single seat-lift operation.
For the U.S. Dairy Industry and users of dairy ingredients, changes to the Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO) regulations in March 2007 allowed seat-lift cleaning of Mix Proof valves while milk or milk products were in the opposite housing.
