Achieve higher operational efficiencies and improve sustainability by automating your dairy plant public health controls.
The pasteurization of milk products is a heavily regulated process and is critical to public health and safety. Pasteurization process regulations such as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service and FDA Grade “A” Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO), have specific data requirements for milk pasteurization areas and equipment. These include, safety thermal limit recorders (STLR), flow recorder/controllers (FRC), storage tanks, clean-in-place (CIP) equipment and aseptic packaging. Whether your plant utilizes HTST (high temperature short time) pasteurization methods or produces UHT milk, Eurotherm has the solution to fit your needs.
Data recorders/controllers used for milk pasteurization play an important role in helping to ensure every particle of milk product is exposed to the appropriate temperature for the appropriate time.
Eurotherm digital data recorders offer a range of features and solutions to help dairy processors meet the data recording and control requirements of the PMO and other regional regulations.

Eurotherm helps to bring improved efficiency and sustainability to dairy plants by enabling digitization of the data collection for milk pasteurization and other dairy plant processes. The digital recording of contextual metadata helps to improve data integrity and increase the trustworthiness of dairy plant process data.
Tamper resistant features in Eurotherm digital data recorders help to meet:
Increase the reliability of dairy plant data and processes by moving away from paper data recording to digital solutions
Recognize cost savings associated with a movement from paper to digital data recording
Future-proof your business by reducing risk and increasing manufacturing intelligence
In the US dairy industry, the PMO requires data recorders to be configured to prevent any milk product being pasteurized from falling below a specific pasteurization temperature. Regulations also state that data recorders in pasteurization systems with variable speed timing pumps must ensure that pasteurized product flow does not exceed machine design.
Similar regulations exist in other regions around the world. For example:
Best practice guidance advises the use of digital data recording solutions, which should comply with the requirements of the Grade “A” Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO), FDA 21 CFR Part 11 standard for Electronic Records and Electronic Signatures, and the ALCOA+ data integrity principles.
As part of our digital engineered solutions (DES), we have developed standardized STLR/FRC solutions for Safety Thermal Limit Recorder (STLR) and Flow Recorder Controller (FRC) applications.
