Energy efficiency has become the need of the hour with ever-increasing costs causing difficulties to businesses across all industries. If you are planning to set up a dairy unit, it’s important to think of solutions that will help you cut costs in the long run. Energy expenses take up a major chunk of the monthly operating costs in a dairy unit with electricity required for water heating.
Dairy farms make use of large volumes of hot water daily for cleaning equipment. A lot of hot water is required and it is quite a long and complicated process. There are three cycles as follows:
This is the general cleaning process and differs in every dairy set up depending on their specific requirements. But one thing they all have in common is that the entire process requires a large quantity of hot water.
Water heating solutions that run on electricity, propane (LP) or natural gas are commonly used, but they add considerably to the monthly expenditure. Switching to a solution such as a heat exchanger can help cut down the water heating costs considerably.
