Milk cooling

A TCool bulk milk tankMilk cooling is an important part of the process to deliver high quality milk to the dairy. Fast cooling of the milk to 4°C helps to minimise bacterial growth, keeping the bactoscan low and maximising the milk price. This needs to be achieved using the minimum amount of energy if costs are going to be kept in check and milk production to be profitable.
