Variable Speed Milk Transfer Systems (VSMTs)
A VSMT consists of a variable speed pump and controller that regulates or slows down the milk flow through the plate cooler. A VSMT system can result in milk that is the same temperature as the farm’s well water (an average of 50 degrees). The milk then goes into the bulk tank and is mechanically cooled down by compressors to 38 degrees.
VSMT systems are usually cost-effective for dairy farms with 75 cows or more.
