A SIMPLE STERILIZER FOR SMALL DAIRIES
tS"1-''
!
Getting Al! of the Milk-Souring Ger ms Out of Cream Separator Parts
With a Home-Made Sterilizer.
MILK KEEPS BETTER IN STERILIZEb UTENSILS
Washing Will Not Destroy Disease Germs and Harmful Bac
teria in Milk Cans, Buckets, etc., but Steam From Simple
Inexpensive Sterilizer, Here Described, Will Do It.
Approach of warm weather adds to
the dairyman’s problem of keeping
milk from souring. It is commonly
known that bacteria in milk produces
changes which spoil it and therefore
every means should be taken to re
duce the bacteria content of milk as
much as possible. This can be done,
first, by producing milk under clean
conditions, second, by producing,
handling and by keeping it in steriliz
ed utensils, and third by cooling it
and keeping it cold.
Dirty milk utensils, and even those
which apparently are clean but which
have not been sterilized, contain vast
numbers of bacteria which are added
to milk or cream when it comes in
contact with them. It is true that
even when milk is produced under
clean conditions it will contain a few
bacteria, for when such milk is
placed in unsterilized utensils or is
run through an unsterilized strainer
cloth of the separator, large numbers
of bacteria are added, which are apt
to spoil it quickly. When dairy uten
sils are sterilized by steam most of
the bacteria and all disease germs are
destroyed, and therefore milk and
cream in these utensils will keep
sweet much longer. Sterilization of
utensils on farms is neither difficult
nor expensive if the simple steam
sterilizer designed by dairy specialists
of the United States Department of
Agriculture is used.
For Smaller Or Larger Farm*.
This sterilizer is designed to be of
greatest use to those who have one,
two or three 10-gallon or smaller cans
with a similar number of pai!a and a
strainer cloth, but it can be used to
advantage where a large number of
cans are required. In its construction
are needed first roasting pan of stan
dard size (20 inches long, 14 inches
wide and 3 inches deen), a close fit
ting insulated cover to fit over thi.
pan, and a box with a removable top
to fit over the cover.
To make the cover, take a sheet of
heavy galvanized iron and cut it large
enough to allow it to project % inch
over the edge of the pan. Bend the
edges of the sheet so as to form a
shallow box with sides % of an inch
high. Then cut out a cover for the
shallow box thus made. Cut a hole
1 Vi inches in diameter in the center
of both the cover and the box. Iron
braces should be placed crosswise on
the box to strengthen it. Then fill
the shallow box with paper or asbes
tos sheets, after which the top of the
box is carefully soldered on. Solder
a round, galvanized-iron pipe 4 Vi
inches long and 1 Vi inches in diam
eter in the hole in the center of the
cover.
The box with the removable cover
previously referred to should also be
made of galvanized iron. This box
shou'd be 11 inches high and large
enough to fit on the cover just
described. The complete cost of this
outfit should not be more than $8 and
if a soldering outfit is available it can
be made at home, or any tinner can
do the job.
Using the Sterilizer.
To sterilize cans, the roasting pan
should be placed on two burners of
a cook stove or an especially built
brick furnace. The pan should be
filled with water to the depth of one
inch and the cover placed over it. As
soon as the water heats sufficiently,
steam will come out of the outlet pipe
and as a rule it takes less than fifteen
minutes to develop enough steam for
sterilization. When steam of sufficient
heat (at least 205 degrees F.) has
been reached, place the can over the
steam out'et for five minutes, then
remove, shake out any water and
place upright on the floor. The can
should be absolutely dry in two or
three mifiute*. If not dry In that
time it shows that the steam was not
as hot as 205 degrees F., or that the
can had not been washed clean.
Pails and other utensils are steri
lized in the same manner. But to
sterilize can covers, strainer cloths,
separator parts and other small uten
sils it is necessary to use box hav
ing the removable cover. When the
steam begins to issue from the outlet
pipe place tha box ovar the sterilizer
put the small utensils in it and place
the cover over the box. See that all
parts fit snugly so the steam will not
escape, and then proceed as in steri
liz' cans.
en properly operated, this steri
lizer destroys practically all bacteria
in the utensils including all disease
germs. It will accomplish the same
results as any sterilizer in which
steam not under pressure is used. Ex
periments with this sterilizer show
that the 5-minute steaming is, for
practical purposes, as good as the 15
to 30 minutes usually recommended.
Don’t Forget Washing.
Before sterilizing, rinse all utensils
in cold water, then wash thoroughly
with hot water and washing powder.
Sterilization is not a substitute for
I Sterilisation of dairy utensil* !
is necessary for the production |
of dairy products of high quality, j
particularly milk and cream, be- ?
cause the washing of dairy uten- I
sils, at least by the process gen* j
erally used, is not sufficient to i
insure freedom from infection I
and contamination. Steam is I
necessary to kill the disease I
germs and harmful bacteria that j
lurk in milk cans, buckets and I
other such equipment used j
wherever milk is produced. !
Dairy utensils on small farms I
I are not often sterilised efficient* |
ly, because steam is not avail* [
able. The United States Depart- |
ment of Agriculture has devised {
a simple and Inexpensive, yet |
efficient, steam steriliser which I
can be provided at such a small I
cost as to justify its us* on any i
farm from which milk or cream j
is sold. The additional keeping ^
quality which the sterilisization )
of utensils will give milk and i
cream probably will pay for the !
cost of the steriliser in one sea- |
son. Full particulars on how to |
make and use this device are de* |
scribed in Farmers' Bulletin 748, !
a copy of which can be had, so j
long as the supply lasts, on appli* 1
cation to the United States De- J
partment of Agriculture.
washing. If the sterilizer is to be used
longer than 40 or 50 minutes more
water should be added to the roasting
pan to make up for loss of evapora
tion. It is advisable to have an ac
curate thermometer with a scale
reading to 212 degrees F. in order to
determine when the •steam has .ea •h
ed enough heat for efficient sterilhi
tion. When sterilization is being
done in a cold room it is recommend
ed that some form of insulation be
used over the utensils. A blanket
easily can be made for this purpose.
This is desirable in order to keep the
pans or pails hot long enough after
sterilization to dry out quickly. After
the utensils are sterilized and dried
they should be placed in a room free
from dust and should not be touched
until milk is placed in them.
