Why rapid cooling?
Rapid cooling of milk with the plate heat exchanger safeguards milk quality because the storage temperature can be reached sooner. Subsequently, the heat exchanger slows down the growth of bacteria in the milk. Pre-cooling the milk via a plate heat exchanger before it reaches the cooling tank also saves costs. The heat exchanger is supplied with well water or tap water. Both pre-cooling and storage cooling must operate efficiently to preserve milk quality. Pre-cooling with the plate heat exchanger depends on the water to milk flow ratio. Optimum pre-cooling is achieved using plate coolers with a ratio of approx. 2.5: 1.
Pre-cooling the milk using the plate heat exchanger saves energy during subsequent cooling in the cooling tank as the milk enters the cooling tank at a lower temperature. You can save up to 60 percent on your milk cooling energy costs with a well-dimensioned plate cooler from Risto.
