Abstract:
This research paper details the development of an advanced microfiltration module tailored specifically for the dairy industry. The module employs larger pore size filters made of polypropylene cartridges, chosen for their availability, cost-effectiveness, and adherence to hygiene standards. The fabrication process strictly adhered to current Good Manufacturing Practices and Food and Drug Administration regulations, ensuring compliance and product safety. Material selection and thickness followed the guidelines set by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, optimal performance and long-lasting durability. Quality testing encompassed Die Penetration testing, Moly testing, and profilometer analysis, with all results falling within the range. Microfiltration module features two filtration units one equipped with 5 µm filters and the other compatible with 3µm or 1µm filter cartridges. Detailed drawings were used as blueprint during fabrication, adhering to strict sanitary standards. The module effectively removed somatic cells and bacteria from raw milk, resulting in improved milk quality and safety.
