When it comes to renewable energy, nothing can beat the sun. It has an expected lifespan of another 5 billion years. Yet, the sun and its solar power remain underutilized in many parts of India and most parts of the world. Too much electricity comes from sources that pollute the earth with harmful byproducts. Every day, there are scientists working on increasing the amount of power that solar panels trap from the sun and battery technology is also advancing by leaps and bounds to creates sources of power that are green and require a one-time investment and some occasional maintenance in the future as opposed to paying a company steadily month-on-month for the electricity provided to you.
One of the biggest obstacles to regularly using solar power to run appliances and equipment is the weather. In a tropical country where the sky is filled with rain and clouds, it becomes difficult to fully harness the sun for all the things that need electricity. This is why the design of our milk vat solar powered milk cooler is designed to use the sun’s energy as well as take electricity from the grid. Both power sources actually charge a batter which powers the cooling of the milk in the solar bulk milk cooler.
The milk vat solar powered milk cooler uses a multi-point power tracking module that does the job of effectively cooling milk down without losing power on this open vertical type of solar bulk cooler. The battery backup is 6 hours. It comes with under and over voltage protection. It’s even designed to be protected from lightning. The LED display on this piece of equipment also gives you a visual indication of any faults going wrong with the machine or the process. If anything does go wrong, the whole system is equipped with an emergency stop switch that should prevent any faults produced while the machine is one.
Still, solar power is a great choice for those who want a greener planet with renewable energy that gives no waste by-products. Look at the brochure for more details about the features and technical specifications of a solar bulk milk cooler.
