Dairy sector

The direct solar-powered refrigerated milk tank: the FREECOLD® solution for developing a fair and sustainable dairy sector in Africa and sunny countries.

TAL-300The FREECOLD milk tank cools a milking in 2 hours down to a temperature of 4 °C with an ambient temperature of 35 °C. It is available with a capacity of 300 and 125 liters
All in stainless steel, the tank has a smooth inner wall, rounded corners and polished welds for optimum conditions of hygiene and food safety. Its walls are insulated with injected polyurethane foam to limit heat losses.

The solar plant is delivered with supports in kit and preinstalled wiring for a quick and easy commissioning. The solar plant powers directly the milk tank and simultaneously recharges the battery to ensure the autonomy of the dairy installation.

The FREECOLD® smart management of energy ensures a high quality power supply and enables a second potential source, grid or generator. Solar batteries of the installation allow to smooth the peaks and hollows of the photovoltaic source as well as the intermittences.

The FREECOLD solar pasteurizer

FREECOLD solar pasteurizerThe FREECOLD solar pasteurizer is designed for heat treatment of milk or juices with a capacity of 60 liters. Its electrical power limited to 2 KW, allows it to quickly heat a volume of milk at an adjustable temperature up to 95°C without requiring a heavy and costly solar installation.

All in stainless steel, the tank has a smooth inner wall, rounded corners and polished welds for optimum conditions of hygiene and food safety. The heating and cooling of the milk are made by a water circulation in the double wall of the pasteurizer. The heating unit is coupled to the electronic control panel for easy control of the pasteurization process. A stirring device, a temperature controller with immersed sensor and a stainless-steel valve – allowing complete drainage of the tank – complete its equipment. The pasteurizer is delivered with 6 photovoltaic modules to increase the power of a milk tank’s solar plant. The pooling of available energy between the pasteurizer and the milk tank gives access to tank’s solar batteries to smooth the irregularity of the solar source.
