OPERATIONS
Optimal uptime
E
Predictive maintenance and efficient cleaning solutions
allow dairy processors to reduce costly downtime.
by Allison Gibeson | dairyprocessing@sosland.com
very manufacturer wants to optimize uptime, maximize
profits and increase production, but both planned and
unplanned downtime can take a toll on those goals.
Dairy processors can help ensure operations stay up and
running by using predictive maintenance and equipment that
is easily cleaned.
SANITATION IN FOCUS
The three most common causes for downtime at a dairy
processing plant are equipment malfunctions, cleaning and
sanitation, and labor issues, said Zack Olson, manager of
growth strategy and innovation at BAK Food Equipment, Burr
Ridge, Ill.
To prevent unplanned downtime, BAK Food Equipment

simplifies the cleaning process by making its equipment
100% washdown proof, meaning workers don't have to
move control panels or cover electrical components prior to
cleaning, Olson said. The company also ensures spare parts
are readily available for processors while also performing
predictive maintenance on larger machines and supporting
smaller equipment with remote maintenance.
BAK offers bowl choppers and mixers for the dairy
industry, and these pieces of equipment are designed with
a dead zone between the motor and where the product is
being mixed. This ensures that if there is a problem with the
motor, no fluids or grease will get into the product, thereby
avoiding a shutdown and costly loss of product. This process
also prevents products from leaking into critical components
