Milk collection centres
The location of milk collection centres is mainly in rural areas where the farmers bring their raw milk after each milking to be cooled in a bulk milk cooler. The truck of the dairy collects the milk from this centre. Packo has equipped many centres worldwide, often operating under difficult climatic conditions.
The milk collection centre is mostly equipped with a small reception tank, a milk pump and a milk cooling tank.
Ideal for this application are the tanks with ice water cooling, type OM/IB and RM/IB:
- as the milk is supplied in small quantities, there is never freezing of the milk thanks to this type of cooling system
- In these areas there is often a problem of power supply. In this case a smaller cooling unit can be installed in comparison with the traditional cooling systems.
