Balanced and objective treatment of a topical area Extended coverage of plant maintenance, cleaning, and waste management A wide range of authors from both the industrial and academic sectors With contributions from a wide range of international experts from both the industrial and academic sectors, this book offers balanced coverage of a topical area. Mechanisation and Automation in Dairy Technology covers the main sectors of dairy technology, their basic science and manufacture, mechanisation and automation, and quality control. It introduces the basic principles of automation, such as objectives, levels and tasks of automation systems, operation and programming of control systems, use of automation in HACCP applications, and designing a process line. The following chapters deal with the individual sectors of the dairy industry, examining the special problems that have been, and remain to be, solved in conversion from manual to mechanised operations. The book also shows how the principles of automation can then be applied or adapted to make the mechanised process interactive within its component parts.
