Industrial Automation - Milk and Cream Separator

Industrial Automation: Milk & Cream Separator

Sundale Dairy, Fullers Bay, East London

Dairy farming, with its demanding operational intricacies, presents unique challenges.

Our client, a dairy farm seeking to optimise their processes, approached us with a specific objective: To automate the milk and cream separation process.

This industrial automation task involved intricate engineering and automation components that required expertise and innovation to execute flawlessly.

Engineering Automation

To tackle this challenge, we leveraged our extensive industrial automation experience to design a state-of-the-art Milk / Cream Separator system.

The system, controlled by a Siemens 1200 PLC and a user-friendly 7″ HMI touch screen, introduces a new era of efficiency.

Gone are the days of manual labour – the fully automated system orchestrates the milk and cream separation process seamlessly.

The Control Panel

The Siemens 1200 PLC serves as the central brain, orchestrating each step of the separation process.

The 7″ HMI touch screen provides intuitive control, allowing operators to set parameters, monitor the process, and receive real-time updates.

The result is a finely-tuned system that consistently delivers quality separation.
