Centrifugal Separators are used to separate milk into cream and skimmed milk, or to separate particles from juice so it becomes clear, and therefore more appetizing.
We’ve got a new knowledge hub about homogenization and separation challenges, tips, tricks and what to think about in different situations.Read more about separation on Processing insights
The unique Encapt™ and AirTight technologies enable superior performance and end-product quality combined with broad operational flexibility – while using 40% less energy than the competition.Read more about our separators with Encapt™ technology
Besides the separation of milk and clarification of juices, Tetra Pak's centrifugal separators can be used for spore removal, whey treatment and anhydrous milk fat production… and more besides. What's special about our equipment is the AirTight technology. This industry-unique feature prevents air from entering the process and thus gives you excellent product quality, as well as high separation efficiency and production flexibility.
Tetra Pak’s design concept for separators, with its closed, AirTight (or hermetic) system, eliminates the limitations of open (also known as semi-open) separators. The AirTight system means a process that is gentler on your liquid, and one that considerably reduces energy consumption.

Tetra Pak Separators ensure high capacity and efficient performance in milk skimming. Smooth product treatment results in greater skimming efficiency and reduced energy consumption
Tetra Pak Bactofuge units are traditionally incorporated in the pre-treatment of cheese milk, where typically butter acid spores (Anaerobic spores) are removed.
The main purpose of clarification is to remove impurities, in whey, cheese fines. Many clarifiers can only be used for either hot or cold milk, with our clarifiers, you can process both.
