  • Patent number: 11116232
    Abstract: A method for producing a first milk product having a first fat content and a second milk product having a second fat content. The method includes separating raw milk into cream and skim milk, diverting a first part of the cream into a first cream pipe, and a second part of the cream into a second cream pipe, dividing the skim milk in the main skim milk pipe, such that a first part of the skim milk flows into a first skim milk pipe and a second part of the skim milk flows into a second skim milk pipe. Flow rates for the two cream parts and the skim milk parts are determined, and valves are adjusted based on the determined flow rates, such that the milk products are obtained when mixing the cream and skim milk parts.

  • Patent number: 11096397
    Abstract: A method for highly concentrating aqueous solutions containing thermally sensitive organic constituents and with or without mineral constituents, wherein firstly, a major portion of the water is extracted by membrane filtration from the solution for pre-concentration and is discharged from the process and the solution which is pre-concentrated is then subjected to a freeze concentration procedure, in which, in the form of separated ice crystallisate, further water is extracted from the solution. To promote results, that concentration may be effected in the freeze concentration procedure until a viscosity of the mother solution of at least 0.0002 m2/s is achieved, and in that the separated ice crystallisate from the freeze concentration with the mother solution adhering thereto as a suspension is returned to the membrane filtration upstream of the membrane filtration or after melting of the ice crystallisate.
