Chill Your Water For Faster Milk Precooling and Lower Energy Costs
Mueller chillers chill water that will be pumped through your plate cooler for faster cooling of warm milk. This rapid cooling inhibits bacteria growth, ensuring better quality milk. Chillers also help your milk cooler refrigeration system run less often for significantly lower energy costs.
A complete chiller system requires these basic components: the chiller itself, one or more refrigeration units, refrigeration tubing,a circulating pump and an Accu-Therm plate heat exchanger. The refrigeration units circulate refrigerant through evaporator plates within the chiller and drop the temperature of the water flowing over the plates. This chilled water then flows from the chiller reservoir through the plate heat exchanger where warm milk is passing in the opposite direction. The warm milk transfers its heat to the water before flowing into the milk storage vessel. The milk cooler refrigeration unit finishes any necessary cooling, running substantially less than if warm milk had been pumped in directly. The warm water in the plate cooler then flows back to the chiller for recooling.
