Eco-tube tubular cooler
Pre-cooling of the milk before it reaches the milk cooling tank.
Advantages concerning energy:
- Free (!) heating of water from milk.
- Considerable savings when using well or mains water as pre cooling. Up to 50 % less energy consumption when cooling the milk.
- No maintenance. The Packo tubular cooler need never be dismantled for cleaning purposes, contrary to a plate cooler or bundle tubular cooler!
- Easy cleaning, together with the milking machine.
Quality advantages milk:
- Immediate milk cooling slows bacterial growth.
- Low blend temperature during subsequent milkings. Less chance of bacterial growth.
- No seals, the milk is only in contact with stainless steel. This avoids pollution or contamination. Very reliable in comparison with plate cooler or bundle tubular cooler.
- The heated water can be used as drinking water for the cattle. The animals like to drink warm water. They drink more; the milk production remains stable, also during wintertime. Tests on the farm have proven this.
- Possible subventions for environment friendly solution
- Smaller cooling unit possible. This means lower investment
- Short return on investment (only a few years)
- Suitable for spring water
