Keeping You Cool
With recent changes in milk cooling, the teams at Stockers have come up with some ingenious ways in being able to help you meet the milk cooling requirements, as well as saving you money.
Monitoring in Real Time
Stocker’s have invested in accurate milk temperature monitoring equipment and developed a way of monitoring your milk temperatures right from the source through to the vat.
This approach allows you to target key underperforming areas without the need for large capital outlays. In some case adjustments to water intake by our plumbers can make the world of difference.
PLATE COOLER UPGRADES
Cooling where it counts
With our advanced monitoring procedures, and access to a large range of GEA plate coolers, we can carry out upgrades to your existing systems to provide you with great water cooling abilities.
We can offer specialist plate coolers able to bring milk within 1°C of the cooler intake water in a lot of cases.
If your ground water supply is a little hot, or you are milking a large number of cows, or sometimes you just want a system that will bolt straight in between milkings, GEA has a large range of water chillers, or glycol snap chillers.
We can provide you with the right solution for your setup and cow numbers avoiding over capitalising on equipment not required.
The GEA chillers are also proven to be one of the most power efficient chillers currently on the market in New Zealand.
