Chlorates - Chlorine-free cleaning of milking equipment

If chlorine-based cleaning products are used as part of milking equipment cleaning protocols, it is increasingly difficult to achieve dairy product specifications with regard to Chlorate and Trichloromethane residues. 

The removal of chlorine would significantly reduce the risk of these residues in milk and consequently, in final products, such as lactic butter and milk powder.

View below video, podcast and guidelines giving detailed information on the chemical content of chlorine-free products and cleaning protocols.  

Following the steps outlined is critical to maintain good microbiological quality of milk while minimizing residues.

Chlorates - Chlorine-free cleaning of milking equipment

Five new chlorine-free (CF) cleaning protocols have been evaluated at Moorepark for the cleaning of milking machines and three options are recommended for the cleaning of bulk milk tanks
