In one to two years pre-cooling gains the investment costs.
What does the plate cooler do?
The plate cooler saves electricity costs. An effective pre-cooling reduces the temperature of the milk. From 35 to about 20 ° C. Thus, the milk must not be cooled down from 31 to 4 °, but only to 16 °. This reduces the running time of the refrigeration unit by 40 to 50%, and your electricity costs are almost halved. Thus, the plate cooler pays off mostly after one to two years.
