Waste Milk Pasteurizing
Value and Performance in a Compact Design
Having West Tech Boiler Works partnership with Thermosteam®, Systems, Inc. means it takes up as little room as a 100 gallon water heater, but packs a powerful steam producing punch!
An Alternate Approach
Less Floor Space – ThermoSteam®, industrial boilers have a unique, vertical tube design.
Efficency – Our Insta-Therm™ design provides efficient pre-heating of feed water which delivers maximum speed and recovery.
Efficient Preheating and Fast, Efficient Steam Generation – Typically a 500 gallon milk bulk tank can be raised up to temperature in just over 1 hour, leaving your waste milk bacteria-free, and nutrient-full!
With the Three E’s
Effective – When performed correctly, heat treatment in waste milk is effective in killing “garden variety” pathogens in milk.
Efficient – Pasteurization kills M. Para tuberculosis which leads to Johne's Disease. If only there was an easy way to kill bacteria in the waste milk prior to feeding, you could stop buying replacer, thus lowering your feed costs, and improving your herd's health by not feeding contaminated milk.
Economical – Why buy milk replacer when you have valuable waste milk? You can save anywhere from $1500.00 to $3000.00 a month. You also save money by spending less on medication and vet bills.
West Tech Boiler Work’s innovative temperature monitoring system is a very safe and user-friendly component. With a flip of a switch waste milk can be brought up to a secure pasteurized temperature. It maintains the set-point for duration and notifies you (via an audible alarm) when the batch is complete.
The Bottom Line
The future of your farm depends upon keeping your calves healthy. Your time is valuable. With a healthier herd you have more time to get things done. Pasteurizing waste milk can provide an opportunity to produce a low-cost, high-value liquid feed for calves, which if managed properly has the potential to substantially reduce the cost of rearing calves.
