What Are The Different Kinds Of Cooling Methods That A Lot Of Dairies Use?

There are a couple of different kinds of chillers that are the mainstay for Dairies.  There is an older design that uses a double walled tank where water and cooling coils fill the space underneath and around the milk tank itself.  With this style all day a compressor is running and building ice up around the coils inside the double wall area.  Once that ice reaches a set thickness the cooling compressor turns off and the ice is used to rapidly cool the milk.  This system works out well for small dairies or roughly up to about 40 cows.  If you go beyond that a different type of system is needed.  In this system a plate chiller is used.  A plate chiller can meet large demands for cooling and really work well, there are a couple different designs from using cool ground water and then using a milk storage tank to chill it the rest of the way, to another type with a chiller that is cooling glycol for the other side of the plate chiller that can rapidly cool the milk by pushing the milk through stainless steel plates on one side and chilled water or glycol/water mixture on the other side of the plate.  If you have any questions regarding ways to chill milk we are more than happy to meet with you and help you figure out what method will work for your application the best.  Just drop us a line and we will get your milk cooling needs figured out for you.  From a repair standpoint we can work on either kind of system so just let us know what you need.
