Although milk is subsequently filtered at the milk plant, effective milk filtration on the farm plays an important role in:
• producing raw milk of the highest quality for the dairy company
• indicating the effectiveness of teat cleaning prior to milking
• identifying udder health problems (e.g. mastitis)
• identifying cow environment problems
• ensuring optimum plate cooler efficiency and hygiene.
What makes a good milk filter?
The role of on-farm milk filtration is to enable farmers to produce milk of the highest possible quality and value, as well as helping to protect the milking and cooling equipment. To ensure these demands are met efficiently, a good milk filter must possess certain physical properties. It is essential that the selected filter is the correct size and capacity to match the demands of the milking equipment and herd size. It must also be manufactured from highly uniform fabric, incorporating:
• high wet strength
• even pore size and distribution
• a strong seam
• dimensional stability
• food compliance.
Any size of filter can be produced, anyway most demanded sizes are:
