Sanitize your pasteurizer to keep low SPC levels

 Resize text         Printer-friendly version of this article Printer-friendly version of this article

Sanitizing feeding buckets, bottles and tanks used to hold pasteurized milk is critical and best accomplished manually with a water rinse, followed by alkaline detergent and an acid rinse. Bacterial growth can be rapid and exceed 100,000 cfu/mL or more within one hour if pasteurized milk enters unsanitized buckets, bottles or transfer tanks.

  • Clean after each use.
  • Use cleaners and sanitizers in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Water temperatures when cleaning should remain between 170 and 180 degrees Fahrenheit.
