Anderson-Negele Bulk Tank Recorders for the dairy farms are best in class
The Guardian recording thermometers and DS milk measurement system are specifically designed to continuously monitor the milk quality in farm bulk tank applications. This can reduce the risk of contamination and ensure a higher quality of the milk, leading to increased quality premiums. It also can help optimizing the entire cooling and storage system to reduce cost and avoid the loss of milk due to over-temperature conditions.
The Guardian chart recorders monitor and document the critical process and storage steps and the cleaning cycles by recording on a circular chart the temperature of the milk and cleaning agent in the bulk tank. For that purpose, the system provides a continuous hard copy record of the temperature values during milk processing. In addition, it gives evidence that the milk storage system has been cleaned properly by documenting the time and temperature of the washing and sanitizing processes. This documentation is compulsory in some states.
The Guardian bulk tank recorders also give active alert signals when the temperature goes above or below an individually adjustable temperature range, so that immediate counter measures can be taken to avoid any loss of milk. The two alert relays can be connected to any user supplied audible of visual alarm.
Three versions of the Guardian chart bulk tank recorders give you the choice for an adaptation exactly to your requirements. All versions are very easy to install by means of a pre-wired sensor, avoiding hard to install capillaries.
After the best possible storage control with Guardian bulk tank recorders, the DS milk measurement system provides high accuracy milk measurement for the control of direct transport loading. The high precision flow meter ensures a precise measurement of the milk and provides an automatic control of filling processes.
