Cooling milk with an efficient cooling system of your choice
As a system provider we can also offer you compatible cooling systems for careful milk storage. When it comes to cooling, you have also the choice between different solutions to ensure the highest efficiency for different volumes of milk. The cooling of the milk is significantly more energy efficient with the new scroll compressors, and you can save up to 13 % energy by using cooling units equipped with scroll compressors. The cooling system is automatically controlled. This is carried out via the ICool control unit, which also adapts the cooling system automatically if it detects a rise in temperature. The ICool controls and monitors your valuable milk and warns of any problems in the cold chain at an early stage. The ICool control system enables you to tailor the cooling, cleaning and agitation parameters to your precise requirements.
Cooling and storing of milk on an area of only 14 m².
The greatest strength of the VCool is its construction. As a silo tank it enables you to store larger quantities of milk on a concreted base of only 14 m². The tank itself has a diameter of only three meters – irrespective of the capacity. The construction as a silo tank provides another decisive advantage in that the vertical positioning helps to ensure that the tank is always completely emptied. This lowers the time and costs required for cleaning. The milk tank is made of stainless steel with a double-walled construction for a long service life.
Efficient and gentle cleaning systems for the VCool milk tank
The VCool milk tank is equipped with an intelligent cleaning system to ensure high quality in milk production. The core element is a large sprinkler with six water outlets which disperses the cleaning water throughout the whole tank. To ensure that no water penetrates and contaminates the milk during milk storage, it is fitted with a patented safety valve. A filling level meter prevents the release valve from closing during cleaning and also ascertains the optimum cleaning agent concentration. And with the ICool control unit, you can program the cleaning process to suit your needs and monitor it conveniently via WebGate. So you can reduce your workload and save valuable time. As usual, you can also expand the VCool using modular units. Our solutions grow with your needs.
