Instant cooling - protect milk quality with less than half of the energy requirements
Energy recovery systems
A DeLaval energy recovery system generates warm water using a milk cooling process. This solution can recover up to 60 percent of the heat extracted from cooling milk and convert it to hot water for use in all your pipeline and parlour cleaning.
Milk is refrigerated to maintain its quality for as long as possible, and to reduce the growth of bacteria. You can achieve more cost-efficiency in on-farm milk cooling if the milk is pre-cooled using well water through a heat exchanger – before it enters the milk tank for cooling by refrigeration. Both these cooling stages must work efficiently to maintain maximum milk quality. Making sure you have the correct water-to-milk flow rate to pre-cool the milk before it enters the bulk tank will optimise pre-cooling efficiency. We recommend 2.5:1 or 2:1 water-to-milk flow rate.
