Milk vat insulation savings calculator

On hot days your refrigeration system has to work harder to chill your milk. Insulating your vat reduces the energy needed to chill milk and speeds up the chilling process. This calculator will help you work out how much you could save.

Insulating your vat protects it from heat gain, especially on days that are warm, sunny and windy. Insulation reduces the amount of heat your refrigeration system needs to remove from the vat, speeding up the chilling process. This means your milk chills faster, using less electricity, and saving you money.
