NEW WAY OF MAKING BUTTER.…

NEW WAY OF MAKING BUTTER. Australian papers give a full description of a new progress of butter-making without churning, which has been on exhibition for about two months in Australia. The butter. globules are separated by passing air through the cream, and at least two advantages are claimed for the process. In the first place there is a great saving of labour, and, secondly, it is said, the butter is purified by the circula- tion of air through cream tainted by strong fodder or by being kept too long. In a recent trial three strong glass vessels were provided for the cream, large enough to make about 80 lbs. of butter at one time. To obtain the air-power water is run into an empty tank, forcing the air therein through a pipe into a second tank filled with water, with which some unknown material is mixed to purify the air passing through it. After being forced through this intermediate tank, the air enters each of the glass vessels near the bottom, and rises through the cream, escaping, pre- sumably, by a valve at the top. In from twenty to sixty minutes, according to the the condition of the cream, the state of the weather, and other circumstances, the butter rises to the top of the vessels, and the butter- milk is drawn off from below. No details are given as to the proportion of butter to milk, as to the percentage of butter fat left in the- butter-milk. These points must be investigated before the progress can be regarded as of any value. It seems unlikely that the butter globules can be sufficiently extracted by the mere concussion of air in the cream.
