Please bear with me while I try to connect my vision for life with your vision for how a sterile tank should operate in your liquid foods plant. (Trust me on this one.)
For quite a long time, I aspired to live a minimalist life, but then I read Greg McKeon’s book “Essentialism” and realized a far better goal is to live a life filled with what is essential for me. The former is about stripping away as much as possible, while the latter is realizing what matters most to you… even if that answer is different than what others need. As you know, a sterile tank is a buffer between your food processing and your filling equipment. Stated simply, it prevents downtime… and downtime costs you money. It’s easy to over-engineer a sterile tank, adding options that you really don’t need. Such options add complexity, and complexity often leads to (you guessed it) more downtime. So what’s essential when it comes to your sterile tank? In the vast majority of cases, it’s that the tank is always ready when you need it. That implies that most sterile tanks should be as simple and reliable as humanly possible.
