When talking to our customers around the world, they have the same challenges in their processing businesses: labour, worker safety, hygiene and product safety and quality control. The most cost-effective way to address these issues is automation.
Our point of difference lies in our ability to develop and deliver custom solutions in response to each customer’s specific needs.
Drawing on our full range of equipment and integrating these with additional equipment from other suppliers, H&C can provide complete line integration and optimisation.
For cheese processors we can provide an integrated solution for the back end of processing, from the cheese tower to palletising.
And for cheese converters we provide this integration at the front end, from de-palletising through de-packaging to deliver an unwrapped block ready for cutting, slicing or other further processing.
Many of our systems can also be applied to butter, cream and other dairy products.
H&C, BetaVac and Milmeq technology has been installed for many of the world’s biggest names in dairy. All of our systems have a reputation for reliability and simplicity of operation.
The following products feature in our solutions for dairy processors:
Vertical plate freezers provide rapid freezing for blocks of fish, shellfish, meat, poultry, vegetables, fruits, liquids and by-products such as offal for pet food. Plate freezers can freeze large amounts of naked product in a very short period of time.
Freezing capacities within these systems can be custom designed depending on individual requirements but are generally suited for operations with a lower throughput than those requiring horizontal plate freezers.
Milmeq partners with DSI, a Denmark based company, to deliver robust vertical plate freezing technologies to customers based in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, including fishing vessels in surrounding waters.
The DSI Plate Freezers are suited to both land and marine installations. The freezers can run on carbon dioxide (CO2) refrigeration providing shorter freezing times whilst maintaining the freshness and quality of the product.
Quick contact freezing of food products in vertical plate freezers delivers a number of advantages including maintenance of product freshness, low power consumption, use of environmentally friendly refrigerants and low initial costs.
Designs are refined for ergonomic operation and easy cleaning and maintenance. Manual and automatic options for the loading / unloading sequence are available, enabling processors to reduce the amount of manual handling in the process flow.
