Pasteurization Process

Technological advances in refrigeration and food preservation have made an abundance of products readily available the likes of which people never would have dreamed of hundreds of years ago. One of the most important innovations, especially for the dairy industry, has been pasteurization. This process, which was developed by Louis Pasteur in the mid-19th century, is what allows us to have access to a variety of fresh, safe dairy products.

Pasteurization doesn’t destroy all of the pathogenic organisms in a substance, but rather reduces the number so that it is less likely to cause disease. Pasteur and his colleague, Claude Bernard, originally developed the process for use in wine and beer, but today it is most notable in milk. The process is quite simple: the product is simply heated to a certain level for a specific amount of time, which kills many of the antigens and increases its shelf life.

Focus on Energy

In these rough economic times, every penny matters, any chance you have to save a penny, take it!  A great way to save money (and energy) for farmers is to apply for the Focus on Energy Grant.  Currently, Wisconsin is offering various grants to those who switch (and meet the specified criteria of the applicable grant) to energy efficient means through bioenergy.    Bioenergy is energy from any biological material that can be used as fuel.  This fuel is in turn burned or converted in systems to produce heat, electricty, or even both!  It can even be as small as using energy efficent light bulbs or updating your operations to a variable-speed drive on the vacuum pumps, or even updating your pasteurization system, which Koss Industrial, Inc. can help you with today!
