Chilled Water

Pre Cooling

Selecting the right pre-cooling system for your farm is an important decision. There are many factors to take into consideration before deciding what type of system will suit your farm best.

Cow numbers, shed size, water temperature, milk pump flow rates, power availability and primary cooling design are just some of the things that need to be considered before a solution can be proposed.

Chilled Water

A Qubik chilled water system chills a large volume of water to 7˚C outside of milking time. It then circulates the water during milking through the second stage of your plate cooler reducing milk temperature to 9-10˚C before entering the milk vat. This unit is smaller than a glycol unit but needs to run over a longer period of time each day. Chilled water systems are the most common pre-cooling option available in New Zealand.

  • Ability to snap chill milk to 10°C within 3 minutes of leaving the cow.

  • Built in heat recovery producing hot water up to 60°C at 3 litres per minute.

  • Designed in New Zealand for New Zealand conditions.

  • Independent from your vat refrigeration system giving you peace of mind.

  • It can use off peak power outside milking time to chill the water.
