Eurotherm offers a wide range of process control instruments for the food and beverage industry – Dairy, yogurt, chocolate, charcuterie, brewing, distilleries and more. Data acquisition and control is key to meeting regulatory requirements and ensuring product safety for customers.
Achieve higher operational efficiencies and improve sustainability by automating your dairy plant public health controls. Dairy processors can rely on Eurotherm for the digitization of pasteurization temperature and process data. Future-proof your business operations by expanding process digitalization throughout the dairy plant.
The pasteurization of milk products is a heavily regulated process and is critical to public health and safety. Pasteurization process regulations such as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service and FDA Grade “A” Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO), have specific data requirements for milk pasteurization areas and equipment.
These include, safety thermal limit recorders (STLR), flow recorder/controllers (FRC), storage tanks, clean-in-place (CIP) equipment and aseptic packaging. Whether your plant utilizes HTST (high temperature short time) pasteurization methods or produces UHT milk, Eurotherm has the solution to fit your needs.
Data recorders/controllers used for milk pasteurization play an important role in helping to ensure every particle of milk product is exposed to the appropriate temperature for the appropriate time.
Eurotherm digital data recorders offer a range of features and solutions to help dairy processors meet the data recording and control requirements of the PMO and other regional regulations.
Tamper resistant features in Eurotherm digital data recorders help to meet:
According to the Grade “A” Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO), high-temperature-short-time (HTST) and ultra-high-temperature (UHT) pasteurization processes must use a recognized compliant safety thermal limit recorder (STLR) and flow recorder/controller (FRC). These public health control recording devices help to prove that pasteurization temperatures have been maintained for the appropriate time, and that the product flow is diverted during low or high conditions.
This document details how Eurotherm standardized STLR/FRC solutions meet the public health control recording requirements of the PMO criteria.
According to the FDA Grade “A” PMO (Pasteurized Milk Ordinance) 2013, electronic data recorders are now considered suitable replacements for paper chart recorders, particularly in terms of cost savings and reliability. In order for electronic data collection systems to be considered, vendors or manufacturers must describe how the recording products comply with the twelve criteria dictated by the PMO. The purpose of this white paper is to describe how the Eurotherm electronic data recording strategy complies with the requirements of the PMO.
