Glossary of Terms

Bulk Milk Tank – Important in the production of dairy, bulk milk tanks are used to cool and store milk at a cold temperature
 
Heat Recovery System – Heat is often extracted from ice water or milk, the heat is then absorbed by a heat exchanger and is then used for other purposes such as udder washing on a farm eliminating the need for any water heating.
 
Air conditioning – Wall mounted, ceiling mounted or ceiling cassettes that control temperature, ventilation and humidity in buildings often used to cool the temperature.
 
Ice builders – Ice is produced to provide chilled water. This chilled water is then passed through a plate cooler which helps to cool milk. The warm water then returns to the ice bank ready to be cooled again.
 
Condensing Units – A condensing unit is typically used to cool milk no matter what the weather. In order to prevent the growth of bacteria it is important milk is cooled to around 4 degree Celsius
 
Tank Cleaner – The milk tanks are cleaned as dirty water is pumped away from the tank. The chemicals used to clean the tank are automatically dosed switching between acid and alkaline. A digital flow meter technology is also used to regulate every wash process controlling water level and cycle washes.

We are over the moon with the savings we are making. We have gone from hot washing 3 times a day with a heating time of 6 hours per hot wash, to washing twice a day with a heating time of only 2 hours per wash. We also use the water for domestic central heating and using to feed freshly calved cows. They will consume about four times more hot water than cold. This has reduced the number of DA (Twisted Stomach) significantly and this has greatly reduced my vets bills.
