Abstract
With an increasing volume flow and, in particular, the pumping of larger, semi-hard curd, the median of the particle size distribution is reduced by 0.61 mm. The comminution of small, hard curd was low (<0.20 mm) and independent of the tested volume flows. No differences between pumps regarding all of the measured parameters were observed. Due to the small amount of curd fines uprising during pumping (<0.28 g l(-1)), no factor shows a significant influence on the evaluated parameters. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
