Dairy processing facility


Dairy products derive from natural ingredients that spoil easily. They require strict control over production and storage conditions, along with unwavering hygiene.

These are some of the pitfalls you might encounter:


  • Uncontrolled airborne moisture giving rise to unexpected hygiene issues
  • Condensation on piping and on building structures, which can give mould problems
  • Unpredictable levels of moisture in the air can wreak havoc with quality control
  • Inconsistent production conditions risk decimating profits and damaging brand reputations
  • Combating fluctuating humidity and its effects throughout the dairy process is costly

Controlled humidity ensures better production conditions and better hygiene

Humidity challenges in processing dairy products

Better living conditions, global commerce and accelerating consumer expectations have resulted in rapidly expanding markets for dairy products. But such products have to be in consistently good condition – poor quality decimates profits and demolishes brand reputations.

With dairy products – inherently delicate and perishable – effective end-to-end control of production and storage conditions, along with a bullet-proof, standards-complaint hygiene regimen, is sine qua non for consistent product quality and commercial success.

Unfortunately, fluctuating levels of moisture in the air tend to wreak havoc with full control and good hygiene.

Preventive action – getting rid of the problem

Risk is never good for business. Cotes dehumidifiers enable you to eliminate a key imponderable in pathogen-sensitive dairy processing setups – the unseen humidity present everywhere, fluctuating round the clock as well as with the seasons and the weather.

Uncontrolled airborne moisture provides a perfect substrate for bacterial growth – and all the hygiene issues this involves. In the world of dairy products, this has to be dependably dealt with in order to ensure compliance with all-important quality standards and health codes.

Cotes dehumidification technology gives you effective end-to-end control over the air conditions throughout your dairy processing setup, so you can maintain the consistent standards-compliant product quality essential for commercial success.

Effective control of humidity levels also brings you more energy-efficient, accurate control of temperature – essential when working with dairy products.
