BMC – Bulk Milk Cooler

The most important part of a collecting center of milk is the bulk milk cooler/Bulk Milk Chiller (BMC). When the milk is extracted, it is at around 36-37°C. If the milk continues to remain at room temperature after extraction, bacterial growth will affect the quality of the milk. The BMC is meant to cool the milk to 4°C in a prescribed time. The BMC is available in different shapes and sizes (like start from 250 ltrs to 10000 ltrs capacity) which depend on the amount of milk to be cooled and the system of cooling.

Advantage

  • Faster cooling owing to direct expansion.
  • Durable tank made of AISI 304 SS.
  • Hermetically sealed compressor.
  • Digital temperature controller.
  • Occupies minimum space.
  • Energy conscious.
  • Designed to be user-friendly

 

Evaporator Cooling

In the direct expansion (DX) type, the refrigerant system directly extracts the heat via evaporator (Dimple Jacket) which is a part of the bottom sides of the cooling tank. The tank is insulated to maintain the temperature and is provided with an agitator for uniform distribution and cooling of milk. Efficient evaporator ensures quick and trouble-free cooling and space-saving installation. A high cooling capacity is guaranteed and freezing is prevented for small amounts of milk. The tank is made of stainless steel completely welded and polished. A smooth slope is also provided in milk tank for drain outlet such a way that total milk will drain perfectly.

Refrigeration Unit

  • Designed to work up to 45°C in Indian weather condition
  • Minimum noise & easy to maintain
  • As tank is attached with unit so the unit, the shifting cost is free and also protected because of grill cover

Refrigeration system is designed in such a way that only 3°C temperature will increase in 12 hours after switching off the working unit at 2°C.

Facility to Measure Milk Volume

Dip-stick with dip-stick chart is provided to measure quantity of milk in the tank.

Insulation

Thickness 60 to 75mm. Insulation Polyurethane Foam (PUF) CFC free. Density 38 Kg/M3 ±2 kg, all Body PUF pouring by automatic Imported Machine.

Control Panel

  • Temperature display with control system MOB for compressor
  • P. / L.P. in selected models
  • SPPR with under cover voltage protection Overload relay in selected models
