INOXPA solution

Two automated skids for milk reception: 15 and 25 m3/h.

This kind of skids is usually designed to be installed below the tanker outlet so that the milk can be transferred there by gravity.  It resulted impossible at this factory site and a PROLAC HCP SP self-priming pump had to be installed between the tanker and the deaeration vessel. Under these conditions, the obtained accuracy ranges from 0.4% to 0.5%. 

The control panel houses a printer that prints a ticket with the quantity of milk received.
