This plant is for the heating of milk directly on discharge from the milking installation and therefore essentially at body temp. (approx. 34-37AÂ° C initially). The steps comprise regenerative heating of the milk to about 50AÂ° C, indirect heating through plates to 72AÂ° C, holding in a coil holder for e.g. 15 s, regeneratively cooling it, and finally cooling it with water to 4-10AÂ° C. Because of the high initial milk temp. and heat regeneration the power requirements are low (about 5 W/l milk).
