We have an older Saf-Gard pasteurizer that only heats to about 145* F. Does anyone know how to adjust the temperature so we can get it up to 165* F? I haven't had much luck on online searches.

Luckily, we check the temps on the milk anyway, so have known that it isn't fully pasteurizing. We usually just run it three times per pasteurization, as the temp will hold for about 20 minutes each time.

On the front cover of the SafGard Pasteurizer is a small hole. If you have a small screwdriver that will fit through it, you can reach the adjustment screw on the thermostat. If you can't get to it through that hole, then just remove the screws from he cover to get to it. Turning the screw clockwise will increase the temperature. I would start with a quarter of a turn.

Thank you so much for the info on the pasturizer temp adjustment. I had a goat dairy in the 80s, but once the pasturizer is set up, you don't have to think about it as long as you check each batch. I now have a cow.
