Milk Condensing Addition

Laurel, MD

This is a compact and heavily engineered project.  It is 7,000 square feet, 95 feet tall, with 6 levels of processing equipment.  This addition to the existing milk drying plant will increase the evaporation capacity by 25%.  The addition utilizes 260 tons of cooling from the existing plant.  New Variable Frequency Drives were added to the existing system to improve efficiencies, along with a new Motor Control Center.  This new configuration improves the cycle time, by allowing the plant to continue drying while going through a cleaning process in parallel.
