According to the German Dairy Association, domestic farmers delivered more than 30 million tonnes of milk to dairies in 2016 for further processing. This puts German dairy farmers in first place in Europe, far ahead of our neighbouring country France.
As with all other sectors of the foodstuffs industry, the dairy industry must also comply with the highest quality standards during processing. The pasteurising process alone presents great challenges for the industrial components involved, but Behncke’s products master them easily. Numerous heat exchanger types, e.g. the stainless steel coaxial exchanger version with its web-free design, have also been qualified for use in the dairy industry.
