This APV Gaulin MC120 homogeniser is a 5-cylinder machine which is designed for 25.000 liter per hour with a maximum pressure of 210 bar. The homogensier is equipped with 2-stages with poppet valve cylinder and a MICRO-GAP homogenizing valve assembly which is especially for non-abrasive, low viscosity dairy products. The highly efficient MICRO-GAP valve will enable to operate at up to 40% lower pressure, while giving you the same or better product quality and saves energy and reduction in the machine drive-end loading. Manometer on both stages. Piston diameter: 70 mm. Motor: 160 kW - 380 V - 281 Amp - 50 Hz - 1483 rpm. Oil pumping system inside the machine. Stainless steel cladded. Feetplates available. Note: the head is cracked, needs to be repaired / renewed.
High pressure homogenizers are used to break up the fat globules contained in the milk under high pressure and thus distribute them evenly in the milk. The fat droplets are crushed by forcing the milk through fine nozzles under high pressure. This process prevents a layer of cream from forming on the milk.
No typeshield on the machine, but confirmed by Krones HST the model of the machine (they reconditioned it in 1996)
Head is cracked, needs to be repaired / renewed.
