With our customers in focus, we construct and manufacture cost-competitive and high-quality light-weight milk tankers. The milk segment is the cornerstone of VM Tarm (VM stands for “Western Jutland Dairy Service”). Over several decades we have developed and manufactured milk tankers in co-operation with our customers. This long-time experience has given us a wide knowledge of physical transport conditions, hygiene handling, pump cabin design, controls and tank types. Our milk tank constructions, carriers, trailers and carts can be delivered with top manlids as well as side manlids.
One of VM Tarm´s main focus points is weight optimization of tankers. In connection with the project ”Tank trailer of the future”, we are working on reducing the tare weight of tank trailers on a daily basis in order to increase the payload.
In July 2013 we handed over a considerably weight-reduced milk tanker to Arla Foods in Germany.
The milk tanker has a one-compartment cylindrical tank of 29,000 litres in total with 100 mm insulation and three axles as well as an axle lift device on the first axle.
Some of the means to reduce the weight include:
- Lining of the tank with fibreglass instead of stainless steel
- Modification of the tank gauge
- Optimization of the chassis
- Installation of aluminium wheel rims and light bar.
The weight of the milk tanker totals 5,400 kg.
