"We went with the GEA aquaCHILL because we were sure it was the most efficient unit out there,” says Ferdinand. “It’s a very efficient unit; at the end of milking the unit turns off, milk goes in at 4ºC, you don’t have to worry about it.

"We are getting 700 litres of hot water every milking out of the unit, so it is a massive power saving on the water heating side of it,” Ferdinand adds.

“Milk is our source of income and we need to protect it and make sure it’s getting picked up. The best insurance policy was putting in the snap chiller – it’s income protection insurance”

“As per usual, Nind is very efficient, quick - in and out - done over two days between milkings. The second day was only maybe an hour just to finish off and go over how to operate it then we were into it. There was pretty much no interruption to us, which was ideal.

“We’ve always had good service from Nind Dairy Services, so it was a no brainer to go with GEA and have Nind install it.”

“Knowing how well the aquaCHILL works and how efficient it is, I wish we had put it in 10 years ago” Running in tandem with your vat, the aquaCHILL is designed to help farmers meet cooling standards with a simple ‘plug and play’ solution that can be retrofitted to work with any system, existing or new.
