This era is approaching success in every possible field. So how could the dairy industry lag? The dairy industry is putting its steps forth in the direction of automation and a technology-driven atmosphere. A Dairy Plant is now a place where milk is processed and various dairy products are produced using high-tech automation techniques. Now every machine that helps to satisfy the dairy work comes under the category of dairy equipment. Let us discuss some of the quintessential points about automation in the dairy industry.
● Accuracy and error free
Once the milk is reached the factory. Every machine gets excited to process it. Numerous machines support the processing of milk and help to obtain curd, cheese, or cream from that. All the processes need complete control of over-temperature conditions. These are done in a highly effective way when automation takes up the charge.
For example: Humans are prone to mistakes but machines work on commands. In many of our daily life activities, it takes place that the manual effort of doing something with less care ends up destroying the item. But if the machine is commanded to heat the milk at 45 degrees celsius for about 10 min. Then it will heat only up to 45 degrees celsius. Not one degree above nor below. 10 min means 10 min. It will stop functioning after the specified time. But human efforts in this regard will be appreciable but will be prone to many mistakes and blunders.
● Reduction in human efforts
Automating manual tasks will reduce human efforts. It does not imply that human labor will not at all be needed. Of Course, it will be required. If human labor will not be present then who will operate and determine the functioning of the machines.
For Instance: When human labor was deployed for carrying out the work of churning the cream, then this work would take 1 hour for 5 kg of cream but when this work is done with the automation techniques, it would take half the time.
- Hire the relevant employees
If one is focusing on heading to the industry fully and wholly automation-driven, then it is of utmost significance that you must hire the employees who are really suitable for your industry. They should be the people who have full know-how of every aspect of your machinery and techniques. Machinery is not the same with every industry.
Once in a while it may happen, some human may fall ill and he is still working. That will spread the harmful toxins and bacteria in the milk and other products.
