Northland's Heating & Cooling specialists, catering for all your Heat Pump, Air Conditioning, Underfloor Heating, Solar Energy, Ventilation & Refrigeration needs
This system is based on chilling a large quantity of water which is then pumped through a heat exchanger alongside your existing primary cooling farm water supply to cool down the milk so that it’s at a temperature of around 8 - 10°C before it reaches the vat.
The vat refrigeration system therefore only needs to cool the milk down a further few degrees to reach the 6°C regulation, meaning there is a lot less pressure on the vats refrigeration system to chill the milk than is currently the case.
Advantages of a Daikin Chilled Water System
"The milk is going into the vat cold which is the best thing. It also draws very little power; you hear the refrigeration stop as soon as the milk goes into the vat – that’s impressive. Chilltech were great to deal with, I’m really pleased with my system." - Greig Alexander – Farmer
Chilltech installed a Daikin Chilled Water system on a Northland farm in March 2016 and the team instantly saw improvements in not only milk temperature but also the speed and power used to achieve the results. Each of our case study systems have been fitted with data logging equipment in order to track performance and monitor water and milk temperatures.
Milk cooling data logging is a recommended part of the new MPI requirements. Information should be held for 30 days. Chilltech can install a data logging mechanism on your system to take the hassle out of recording your own temperatures everyday. All data is instantly downloadable to USB for storage.
