Milk Tower

The Mueller® Milk TowerTM offers improved cooling capacity and enhanced features. Its inner tank incorporates the Mueller Temp-Plate® heat transfer surface. The heat transfer surface removes more heat from milk in the same amount of time when compared to other milk silos, and its horizontal orientation creates an increased cooling surface area allowing optimal refrigeration at lower milk volumes.

Reach maximum cooling efficiency and maintain temperature, even when the tower is not 100 percent full. A powerful, built-in evaporator supports temperature maintenance. The Mueller Milk Tower offers ultimate product protection, enabling you to deliver the highest-quality milk possible. It is also available in a 3-A sanitary finish.

A standard 4-inch vent makes this Milk Tower capable of a faster empty rate than previous vertical tanks. Mueller Milk Towers are ideal for extra large traditional and extra large robotic dairy farm needs. Milk Towers are available in six sizes ranging from 7,000 to 40,000 gallons and provide high capacity milk cooling and storage where space is at a premium.

Condensing Units

Mueller E-Star® units are specifically designed to handle the large temperature changes required to cool milk. They are manufactured with a true refrigeration compressor, rather than an air-conditioning compressor adapted for dairy farm use, and are designed for easy service. Electrical controls and valves are located for easy access, and an oil sight glass and fill port allow for easy changing of refrigerant oil to meet future HFC requirements.

With Paul Mueller Company E-Star refrigeration units, you can expect to outperform all other milk cooling units in terms of reliability, efficiency, and value.

Accu-Therm® Plate Coolers

Paul Mueller Company plate coolers, also known as plate heat exchangers, allow you to use your water supply to cut refrigeration costs. With the technology of Accu-Therm® plate coolers, your existing water supply can be used to precool warm milk before it goes into your milk cooler. The warmed water is then available for animal consumption at your dairy facility. Precooling milk reduces the time and energy needed to reach proper temperatures in your bulk tank by as much as 50 percent.

Accu-Therm® plate coolers have a series of stainless steel plates compressed into a frame. The plates are separated by gaskets that form flow channels on opposite sides of each plate. Cool water flows down the channel on one side while warm milk flows up the other side. The milk's temperature drops as it transfers its heat to the cool water on the opposite side of the plate. The plate cooler's design provides extremely efficient performance for fast precooling in your dairy milk cooling system.

Heat Recovery Systems

No matter the size of your dairy operation, you need ample hot water. With a heat recovery system you can capture the heat from the milk cooling process and inject it back into your potable hot water system. The energy removed from the cooling process generates warm water rather than hot air. An energy recovery unit can save energy, cut costs and improve efficiency to help increase your farm’s bottom line.
