Integrated Solutions for Milk Powder Filling

Milk powders represent key ingredients in many consumer products, and are relied on as a source of milk nutrients by millions of people around the world. These products are often processed and packed to offer prolonged shelf life and easy transportation so that they reach consumers in perfect condition.

GEA offers fully integrated solutions for handling and packing milk powders, which couple leading-edge filling technologies with upstream and downstream systems including bag handling, palletizing technologies and quality checks. Our range of state-of-the-art bulk powder and retail filling lines minimize exposure of the product to the atmosphere during manufacture, and ensure no human contact with the milk powder.

Modified atmosphere filling

Long shelf life and flavor retention are important milk powder properties for many of our customers who fill products that must be transported or stored for prolonged periods of time. Temperature and oxygen are critical to the overall quality of these products, and many oxygen-sensitive powders need to be filled under inert conditions. Our integrated nitrogen and nitrogen/CO2 mixed gas solutions allow customers to achieve the finished product quality that they expect.
