Milk Cooling

The quicker the milk is cooled after milking, the better the quality when it is collected.

Milk cooling accounts for about a third of power costs, so it’s important to find the most efficient cooling system for your operation. Reduce costs by choosing options that have heat recovery (usable hot water) from your cooling system.

Nind Dairy Services can help you meet the new milk cooling standards.

New milk cooling standards come into effect for all farms on 1st June 2018, and may mean that changes are required for your system. Contact the Nind Dairy Services team now for an assessment of compliance to the new standards and discuss cooling options.

Glycol chilling (snap chilling)

Chilling milk to 6°C immediately upon harvest is the most reliable method of suppressing bacterial contamination. The experts at GEA have developed the market-leading snap chilling and heat recovery systems aquaCHILL and aquaTESS.

Nind Dairy Services install aquaCHILL systems

For either retrofit or new install, aquaCHILL is the ideal booster for your cooling system. It is most efficient because it only runs when it is needed (no thermal storage) and hot water can be reclaimed for use in the shed. A 'plug and play' solution that can be moved from farm to farm.

Nind Dairy Services install aquaTESS systems

This is a thermal energy storage system that can be configured in many options and sizes - giving the best of both worlds, snap chilling and cold storage using off-peak power to maintain efficiency.

Nind Dairy Services offer Conventional Cooling solutions

The Nind Dairy Services team supply and service the full range of cooling systems including:

  • Water Chilling
  • Plate Coolers

If your current cooling regime does not meet the new milk cooling regulations Nind Dairy can recommend a secondary cooling option that may include heat recovery, giving you the added benefit of hot water as a by-product of the cooling process. Contact them now to discuss the most cost-effective solution for your dairy farm.

We needed some future-proofing for compliance with changes in the dairy regulations so we had Nind Dairy install an aquaCHILL snap chiller. This had the additional benefit of increased reliability as our vat chiller was getting older. Now the vat chiller is hardly switching on as the milk arrives at temperature - with the resultant saving in power. The glycol chiller also preheats water to our hot water cylinders to around 40 degrees.
