Seeking sensor technology to localise fouling in dairy processing equipment

Posted by FrieslandCampinaVery responsive · Ready to Market Technical Innovations and Products · Deadline at 21/09/2019 · Netherlands

Desired outcome

We are interested in evaluating new/novel technologies that can detect the location, composition and amount of fouling in heat exchangers and evaporators.


Details of the Technology Call

In the dairy industry, runtimes of thermal dairy processing units like heat exchangers and evaporators are limited by fouling: deposits of milk components on the heat transfer surfaces. Fouling of heat exchangers reduces heat transfer efficiency and thus affects the energy use and the economy of dairy processing.

Description of the need
We are interested in evaluating new/novel technologies that can detect the location, composition and amount of fouling in heat exchangers and evaporators.

What we know already
We are aware of in-line sensors that measure fouling at one specific spot within the heat exchanger.
