Case Study: PROCAL

Posted on 22nd June 2017 in

Procal is a family owned fresh milk and dairy manufacturer. Their milk is sourced from local
farms and produced in a state of the art facility in Melbourne.

OBJECTIVES

In yoghurt packaging, gas is often applied to the vapour space of the containers in order to control their composition. This process, called blanketing, greatly improves process safety, product quality and equipment longevity. 

Nitrogen is the most commonly used gas for blanketing because it is inert, widely available and
relatively cost-effective depending on the source of supply. Marky Makalanda, Operations Manager at Procal, had found from previous experience that using a nitrogen generation system was far more cost effective than using bottled nitrogen.

SOLUTION

Personnel from CAPS visited Procal’s manufacturing facility and noticed that their existing compressed air system had excess capacity that could go towards an on-site nitrogen generation system.

Based on site requirements, CAPS recommended and supplied Procal a nitrogen generator system that is 9.2Nm3/hr at 99.5% purity with a storage tank.

BENEFITS

The nitrogen generation system supplied by CAPS came at a considerably low investment to Procal, especially considering they had no need to purchase an air compressor system. Opting for on-site nitrogen generation as opposed to using bottled nitrogen will ultimately allow Procal to achieve long-term savings between 40-80%, depending on current bottled nitrogen prices.

The nitrogen generator system installed by CAPS was a cost-effective and reliable solution that has given us no problems.
