Milk cooling tanks ensuring accurate temperature control
Dairy farms rely on highly efficient cooling of the milk to keep the milk at a consistent temperature of about 4°C in the milk tanks until the milk is collected for further processing.
Milk is stored at the farms in either closed or open milk tanks. To maintain the quality of the milk it is quickly cooled from 38°C leaving the cow to 4°C in the milk tank. The milk tank is typically equipped with a mixer to accelerate the cooling process and homogenize the milk.
In the Danfoss range of solutions for efficient cooling of milk tanks you will find solutions suited for any tank size, any evaporation temperature and for all types of refrigerants, including low GWP refrigerants. The accurate temperature control of the Danfoss components also ensures that the milk does not freeze to avoid depleting of the fresh milk quality. Our solutions are tailored to comply with national/regional legislation.
