On the pulse of ice cream processing

Producing consistently smooth, uniform ice cream every time is a challenge. There are many factors to consider throughout the process – from blending, pasteurization, homogenization, and cooling through to flavouring, colouring and freezing. To ensure the highest quality ice cream without compromising integrity, uniform mixing of dry and liquid ingredients requires optimal dispersion and operational efficiency. Temperatures and timing also require precise control, and gentle handling is critical to safeguard product quality. 

Alfa Laval offers a broad portfolio of hygienic equipment designed to meet strict dairy standards while ensuring product excellence, the highest degree of cleanliness and increased yields. Throughout the various ice cream processes, our equipment portfolio helps ice cream producers get the most from raw materials as well as reduce product loss and energy use while ensuring product integrity. All this gives ice cream manufacturers total peace of mind.
