Reconstituted Liquid Dairy

ZHM GROUP FLOW has extensive experience in the design of systems for recombined milk. The manufacture of these products has been known for many years and a variety of processes and items of equipment has been developed.

In general, recombined milk products are used for a variety of end-products:

  • Low viscosity
    – pasteurised fluid milk
    – sterilised fluid milk
    – UHT fluid milk
    – cultured products such as yogurt and cheese
    – various types of cheeses
    – cream
    – milk based drinks
  • High viscosity
    – evaporated milk
    – ice cream milk
    – sweetened condensed milk
    – desserts

ZHM GROUP FLOW’s in-depth knowledge and active involvement in the development of the world’s dairy industry, combined with proven experience in project management of major capital projects, makes ZHM GROUP FLOW the ideal partner for the design and installation of state-of-the-art recombined milk processing equipment


The preparation of recombined milk can be broken down into:

  • Raw material handling
  • Weighing and mixing
  • Filtration, deareation, homogenisation and pasteurisation

If these steps are carried out correctly and the proper raw materials have been used, then further processing in the manufacture of each product usually follows the standard method of manufacture of the product from fresh milk.
