For Milk Coolers

Ecolactis Company’s aim is to provide to milk producers in the world energy saving systems in order to reduce production costs and the environmental impact of dairy production.

Ecolactis has designed and patented a new heat recovery system suitable for milk refrigeration equipment. This system is marketed under the ECOLACTEO brand.

Ecolactis can rely on 20 years of experience in the field of milk refrigeration and has established industrial, commercial partnerships as well as collaborations with research institutes, to offer durable and efficient energy saving solutions to milk producers.

Research laboratory

CEMAGREF (Research Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Environment) and its Research Unit “Refrigeration Process Engineering” in Antony (FR) took part in the development of ECOLACTEO.

A laboratory test campaign was performed on a prototype system installed on a milk cooler.

The tests were designed to experimentally characterize Ecolacteo system’s performance relative to a reference system without heat recovery. They also compared the performance of the operating mode ECOLACTEO compared to former heat recovery systems and have highlighted the benefits of ECOLACTEO.
