Yoghurt

Tecnal offers a complete turnkey solution or separate modules for the production of your Yoghurt.

 

 

Tecnal proposes turnkey solutions for the production of stirred, drinkable, and firm yoghurt with or without the addition of fruits or flavouring.
Tecnal has targeted its line of Basic and Premium solutions at industrial installations capable of up to 16,000 and 40,000 litres per day.

 

Tecnal’s know-how is based on knowledge and mastery of the key points in all steps of the process:

 

Preparation of milks/powdering:

  • Choice of mixing solutions to ensure effective dispersion and dissolution while limiting foaming
  • Observance of the hydration time
  • Use of a mixer in line

 

Pasteurization and homogenization:

  • Homogenization: allows future texturing of the yoghurt by homogenisation of the fat content and denaturation of the soluble proteins. Tecnal uses equipment from partners whose know-how is widely acknowledged, and perfectly masters the incorporation of this equipment in the pasteurization line to satisfy product, hygiene, and mechanical constraints.
  • Degassing: both degasses the air during powdering and deodorizes the milk, which may be necessary. Tecnal designs and builds its own degassers to a patented design (optional).

 

Incubation:

  • Tanks: use of ultra-clean tanks made by French industrial boiler-makers specializing in tank of this type
  • Ultra-clean environment produced by Tecnal
  • Control of agitation to perform the various stages of work in the incubation vessels: dispersion of the ferments, coagulum cutting, homogenization of the curd, emptying while limiting losses.

Pumping and cooling:

  • Transfer of the product: work on the layout to optimize losses of head, mastery of speeds in the piping, choice of pumps to protect the product
  • Plate-type cooler: dimensioned by the engineers of Tecnal’s engineering design department for a perfect compromise between the cooling time, the choice of plates, limited losses of head, and mastery of temperature deviations.

 

Storage before packaging:

  • Tanks : use of ultra-clean tanks made by French industrial boiler-makers specializing in tanks of this type
  • Ultra-clean environment produced by Tecnal
  • Control of agitation to perform the various stages of work in the tanks

 

Overall design of the installations:

  • Construction of skids that are pre-assembled and tested in our workshops before delivery and installation on the customer’s site
  • Assembly on site and commissioning performed by Tecnal’s technical personnel
