Description:
Application of microfiltration for removal of contaminating bacteria and spores have been developed in the department. It has been shown that shelf life of the processed milk can be increased substantially. The processing conditions required for micro filtration have been optimized to reduce operating cost. Membranes used for this purpose are inorganic membranes whose working life is more than 10 years.

Special Features:
Microfiltration technique is quite superior to the conventional thermal techniques. Spores removal is better using micro filteration than any other techniques. Microfiltration method will be attractive economically.

Prospective Users:
Dairy Industry

Keywords:
Microfiltration :Filtration where particle size to be separated is low 0.05 um-10um

Type of Technology:
Process

Glossary:

Microfiltration, cold sterilization, pasteurization, buffalo milk, cow milk
