Instrumentation for a progressive dairy company project
MILEI relies on measurement technology from Endress+Hauser
MILEI 2.0 refers to the new plant in Leutkirch that boasts an additional 15,600 square meters of production space, where the highest quality products are manufactured with maximum efficiency. In this large-scale project, Endress+Hauser is responsible for the instrumentation that is used for both standard and more-demanding hygiene applications.
More than 2,500 measurement points reliably monitor the various values around-the-clock
As part of a stringent instrument standardization strategy, the variety of devices was reduced to less than 50
Endress+Hauser proved its value as an effective link between Milei and the equipment manufacturers
Standardizing the equipment of our new systems involves a tremendous amount of effort. For this reason, we decided to place the measurement technology completely in the hands of Endress+Hauser.
With this new plant, the challenge for MILEI involved replacing the entire system technology, improving quality standards and manufacturing new products in the area of whey and milk while increasing capacity and efficiency at the same time. MILEI was aware from the beginning that the biggest challenge would be the harmonization of the measurement technology and hygiene standards across all the system partners. That meant finding a competent partner capable of tackling all of these challenges.
Endress+Hauser was involved the project as early as the planning phase. Given our reputation as an expert partner and complete supplier with extensive industry and application know-how, Milei outsourced the "instrument standardization" project to Endress+Hauser. This ensured the installation of the right instrumentation solutions for hygiene-sensitive areas, while providing standard measurement technology across all equipment providers wherever possible.
