Manufacturers of dairy products and value-added ingredients from milk require essential process steps to protect flavor, ensure nutritional value, and prevent microbial or physical contamination. Pall's filtration and separation technology and expertise can help you protect products, reduce costs, improve yield, and maintain a high level of process control. With unique membrane filter technology, innovative high flow filter configurations and a full range of value-added filtration, separation and purification solutions to support dairy producers worldwide, Pall can bring sustainable value to your production process.

Process Reliability

Reliable barriers in manufacturing processes are essential for product safety and brand protection, preventing pathogen entry at points where a product might be exposed to foreign matter, microbiological contaminants or process survivors. Filtration solutions based on the Pall Total Fluid Management™ (TFM) program provide these reliable barriers. The TFM program also targets secondary fluids, such as water, steam and gas utilities to prevent premature equipment failure and the creation of potential contaminant entry paths.
