What to consider before buying a milk pasteurizer
Your milk supply volume- before buying a milk pasteurizer, it’s very important you consider the volume of milk you receive from suppliers. If you receive a lot of milk you will need to go for a bigger volume of milk pasteurizer. This ensures you are able to heat large quantities of milk at a go instead of small repetitive cycles that are more expensive.
It’s therefore important you invest more initially in buying a large volume milk pasteurizer that boils more milk at a go than a small one that will force you to boil in repeated cycles.
The method of heating- there are 3 methods of heating you can use; gas, electricity or steam. Before buying a milk pasteurizer, first establish which option is convenient and economical for you. For smaller capacities of less than 300 liters single phase electricity is more preferable. However if you can access cheap gas it’s also a good alternative.
But for volumes starting from 350 liters we advice one to go for 3 phase electricity or steam if you have a reliable steam generator. Steam is always the fastest option especially if you can invest in a good steam generator.
The type of electricity you are connected to- as indicated above, there are 2 types of electricity connections you can have. The type of electricity to use also determines milk pasteurizer prices in Kenya because of the elements to be used. Normally 3 phase electric heating elements costs more.
Your budget- what is your budget? You budget determines the volume of the milk pasteurizer you can go for. Needless to say however; a small budget gets you a small capacity pasteurizer.
