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.

Customized condensing units sized to fit tank dimensions and ambient temperatures
A wide range of controls to secure reliable refrigeration
Long service life
NRV refrigeration check valves
NRV and NRVH can be used in liquid, suction and hot gas lines in refrigeration and air conditioning plants with fluorinated refrigerants. NRV and NRVH can be supplied with flare and solder connections. They are also available with oversize solder connections providing flexibility in the use of check valves.
ETS electric expansion valves
ETS is a series of electric expansion valves for precise liquid injection in evaporators for air conditioning and refrigeration applications. The valve piston and linear positioning design is fully balanced, providing bi-flow feature as well as solenoid tight shut-off function in both flow directions. ETS valves are compatible with electronic control solutions from Danfoss and other manufacturers.
