Ice Bank Chilling System
A SNAPCHILL ice bank comes with an optional, full heat recovery system to provide all the hot water you need (at 82°C) which represents a significant saving (hyperlink the word saving)on your operating costs
With or without heat recovery you will have the milk entering the vat between 4-6°C giving you full compliance with the new MPI regulations as well as dramatically reducing the risk of milk rejection on temperature or bacterial grounds.
The SNAPCHILL™ is a fully self-contained unit built on a galvanized frame with powder coated panels, the unit dimensions are 2 x 3 meters, and 2.2 meters high.
The Snapchill units are fully weatherproof, designed to sit outside, no roof necessary.
Installation is only a matter of plumbing to the plate cooler and wiring to the switchboard.
Hot water units also require plumbing to hot water cylinders, so any competent farm serviceman or sparky can install the units.
We’ve even had one client install his own system, (a very nice job too!)
With the milk entering the vat at the much lower temperature your existing vat refrigeration load is much reduced resulting in lower running costs and much longer operational life.
As the SNAPCHILL™ H series unit charges off-peak (overnight) and between milking’s when the rest of the plant is not running, it does not add to your existing power load and as the SNAPCHILL™ charges it also provides FREE hot water at 82°C (3-5
