    Abstract: A method and apparatus for regulating the fat content of milk, including that of cream, by separating whole milk into skim milk and cream, mixing part of the cream with the skim milk, determining the respective densities of the skim milk and of the mixture, and controlling the mixture ratio as a function of the difference between these densities by means of an electronic control unit connected to a dosing pump. The fat content of cream may also be regulated by using a pressure control valve, and the fat content of milk intended for cheese production may be regulated in proportion to the nonfat solids content.
