Dairy

More than milk

The dairy market has experienced rapid growth in the past few years, and the large range on offer requires efficient processing. For this purpose, a good tank design ensures good longevity of the product and low maintenance costs. In addition to this, during processing of raw milk to end product, small differences in the design, or specific tank agitator combinations, can lead to big differences in the treatment of the product

Over the past 20 years, Gpi has produced practically every kind of dairy tank or equipment for almost all large dairy brands worldwide. We understand the processes, know the typical tanks which are used for these and automatically deliver the expected quality and workmanship. We design, construct and assemble tanks and apparatus for the processing of all sorts of raw milk, butter, cheese, yoghurt and ice cream, to baby food, powdered milk, whey and other derivatives.

By having engineering, production and quality control in-house, we are able to supervise quality to the greatest extent possible and guarantee you solutions which satisfy the most stringent requirements in terms of hygiene, product longevity, safety and operating convenience, for both liquids and solids. Building, testing and making your equipment operational on location is no problem at all for our assembly department. Naturally, we adhere to international standards and regulations, and if required we can also manufacture our equipment according to EHEDG guidelines.

Tank agitator combinations

We can supply the agitator as well as the tank. Gpi has a good working relationship with all reputable agitator suppliers for problem-free processing and assembly.

Finishing level

As a standard, we produce our food tanks with an internal roughness of Ra 0.8, but if desired we can also produce tanks with much smoother (and therefore hygienic) inner walls.

Heating and cooling

For processes such as pasteurisation and fermentation, heating and cooling of the tank are crucial. Ensure the correct combination of heating/cooling capabilities and insulation of the tank in order to heat or cool your product within the desired time frame.  Let Gpi know directly what heating/cooling capacity you require, and we will collaborate with you in order to arrive at the most efficient solution, whether this concerns a dimple, a double wall or a half pipe.
