Industrial process cooling brought straight to the farm
Drake brings over 30 years of experience to the table when designing a chiller for your dairy. Industrial grade chillers with precise and customizable temperature control ensures the chiller will work as hard to rapidly cool the milk as you do to produce it.
Off-the-shelf chiller manufacturers take a one-size-fits-all approach, while Drake has a wealth of experience in working with customers and designing systems for each specific application. We understand that dairy farming is a way of life for you, so let Drake provide the reliable solution to your chilling needs.
1) On-Demand Chilling: Large scale chillers designed to reach proper milk temperature in a single pass without the need of storage tanks. Single pass chilling reduces the cooling time and extends the shelf life of the milk. Cleanable, plate and frame heat exchangers combined with precision controlled glycol tanks make short work of even the biggest dairy job. Our experience in working with dairy farmers has given us the understanding of the tough conditions on a farm and allows us to design a chiller that can take the heat.
2) Jacketed Milk Tank Cooling: Glycol jacketed tanks eliminate the need for long runs of refrigerant piping therefore, reducing the risk and expense of losing refrigerant to the environment. Glycol chillers offer a variety of redundancy options to ensure that your milk is always chilled when you need it. From multiple refrigeration circuits with standard lead-lag control to auto-changeover pumps, our units are designed to ensure that your process
is not halted.
3) Energy Conservations: Drake understands that the operating cost of the chiller is just as important as the initial expense. Our chillers provide economical solutions for energy conservation through the use of variable frequency drives (VFDs),
EC fan motors, and heat reclamation
to minimize the cost of operation.
By using multiple refrigerant circuits or digital compressors our chillers can work less to get the job done. In the end, the more energy you save, the more money you earn.
