Stainless steel inline sock filters are used to filter the milk before the plate cooler or bulk tank. Double stitched socks are placed over a stainless steel coil spring and inserted to the stainless steel housing. Pearson supply a full range of filter sizes to suit all pump flow rates.

Plate cooling

By using an average ratio of two and a half parts water to one part milk, it is possible to reduce the temperature of the milk to within 2 degrees centigrade of the water input temperature.

Single Stage – The single stage plate cooler passes well or mains water through the cooling plates.
Double Stage – The double stage plate cooler passes well or mains water through the first half of the cooler and chilled ice water through the second half. Using the Pearson MDrive system with a double stage cooler can bring milk to 4 degrees before the bulk milk tank.

Save Water

Adding a water solenoid on the water input side of the plate cooler unit allows the water to be automatically turned off a short time after the milk pump stops, this reduces the amount of water going to a holding tank or to waste.
