Effective cleaning of your bulk milk tank requires the cleaning water to be a constant 45ºC throughout the complete cleaning process. Under certain conditions it may be necessary to maintain this temperature and installing the Mueller 'In-Line' water heater will ensure you maintain this constant temperature throughout, resulting in a clean and hygienic milk tank at all times.
Cow milk is collected at an average temperature of around 37°C, the body temperature of the animal. In fresh milk from healthy cows one can hardly find harmful micro organisms. However, since fresh milk is an excellent growth medium for bacteria, the milk must be protected against contamination after milking. If the milk is stored and cooled immediately, at a temperature of around 4°C, the growth of bacteria will be minimal
