Production process of Amul Milk Reception Milk receipt process is done in Amul 3 Process and reception lab. Raw Milk brought in from trucks is unloaded, tested and processed. Milk from Amul 2 is brought here in cans . Three reception points are available to unload milk from tankers. Each reception line is equipped with centrifugal pumps having a capacity of 30000 LPH, Air decompressor to remove air from milk, filters, pre heat exchange chiller and raw milk silo that is used to store milk. Amul 3 Milk Pasteurization Process Pasteurization process follows following sequential steps: From Raw milk tankers, milk flows to chiller for cooling. There is a raw milk buffer tank where milk gets stored. From Raw milk buffer tank it is stored in milk silo and from there milk goes to pasteurization tank to complete pasteurization of milk. After that it goes to regeneration section to separate cream from pasteurized milk. cream separation section consist of two parts, one of skimmed milk section and other of cream buffer tank. From cream separation section to skimmed milk section, milk is heated at 80 degree Celsius and then stored in milk silo. Skimmed milk after pasteurization is issued to powder section, Milk Powder Section has two units one for skimmed milk pasteurisation and other for whole milk pasteurization. After proportionate mixing in milk storage tank, pasteurized standard milk is converted into milk powder, sent to Amul 2 section, or transported via rail or road tanker to distributors. From cream separation unit, cream is sent to cream buffer tank where it is pasteurized at 80 degree Celsius and then transferred to Cream Balance tank. Afterwards it is issued to butter section unit. Amul 3 Milk Dispatch Milk processed at Amul is sent to different sections such as Amul 2 for pouch packaging, Flavoured milk section, Milk Powder section, butter section, ghee section L& T section and transferred to different dairies. Amul 2 Milk receipt process Amul 2 receives milk in cans at RMRD. Both cow and buffalo milk marked with separate colour is received in morning and evening. Two reception lines are available. Cans are verified for sour or curdled milk. After that milk is added to weighing tank. Empty cans are shifted to washer. Samples are collected for checking fat and SNF calculations. After that it is sent to Amul 3 section for further processing. Milk at Amul 2 is also used for producing butter milk which is packed at packaging department. Milk Pouch Packaging section Pouch packaging sections deal with packaging of milk into pouches. 3 packing machines having two identical heads for packaging, each head drawing heat sealable polythene sheet from distinct separate roll which is supplied with milk to be packed from overhead tank by gravity. Butter Section Separator vessel separates excess fat from milk, which is used to manufacture butter. Butter is manufactured using fresh cream of milk. Coloured salt is added with cream to make butter Cream from Milk 3 and Milk 2 section is brought to Butter section where they are pasteurized at 90 degree Celsius and then cooled to 10 degree Celsius. After that it is rotated in pipe for 20 hours and after that it is moved to cream balance tank. Plate heat exchanger is used to maintain heat level in the process. From there churning process starts which results into production of butter milk as well as butter. After churning butter milk is cooled in chiller from where it is transferred to butter milk silo. Churning leads to butter grains which are washed with butter milk and salted and non salted butter is prepared. Non salted butter is used to make ghee and salted butter is grinded for adding colour and then blended thereafter it is stored in butter silo. From where is packaged into 10 gm chiplet, 8gm blister pack, 100 gm refill pack and 500 gm refill pack.
