The GEA standomat has been designed for continuous cream fat or milk fat standardization in combination with the separation process. Skimming separators split the incoming whole milk into skim milk and cream. If milk with a defined fat content is to be produced instead of skim milk a certain part of the cream has to be dosed back into the skim milk. This procedure is called standardizing. Besides the control of the cream or milk fat content, the units can also provide a proportional dosing of additives.
