Energy-efficient cooling for mozarella firm

Related tags: Milk

Pizza cheese manufacturer Dairy Partners, based on the edge of Newcastle Emlyn in Wales, has installed an energy-efficient cooling system from Aqua Cooling for pasteurisation and mozzarella production in a deal worth more than £600,000.

Dairy Partners is a privately-owned milk processor that produces and exports a variety of pizza cheeses from milk supplied by contracted farmers. Products include the Danscorella brand mozzarella and pizza cheeses.

Previously, the company’s cooling system comprised two conventional refrigeration systems and one ammonia chiller unit. Aqua replaced these systems with inverter-driven screw compressor technology, enabling the chillers to operate at part-load with high efficiency.

Aqua also installed a water-to-water heat pump to reclaim heat from the plant and reuse it for pre-boiler feed for the steam plant and heating wash-down water to enhance efficiency. By using waste heat from the process, it is said to be able to save considerable amounts of energy.
