About the ATL 1 Phase Milk Pump Control?

The control includes receiving vessel milk level detection using either probes or float switches, a plate cooler water valve delay and a plate cooler bypass valve delay. The plate cooler water valve delay is used to ensure that the cold water flow is maintained through the plate cooler after the milk pump has stopped running. The plate cooler bypass valve delay is used to wash the plate cooler at the start of washing and then bypass it to maintain the wash fluid temperature during the wash. All the facilities have separate potentiometer controls to fine tune the timings. NB - Probes or floats switches are not supplied with the control.

What is different about the ATL 1 Phase Milk Pump Control?

The control uses solid state components as opposed to a mechanical relay or contactor. The solid state output provides many characteristics which are difficult to find in electro-mechanical devices. They have a high degree of reliability, significantly reduced interference, fast response and high vibration resistance. They also have no moving parts to wear out or arcing contacts to deteriorate. When the milk pump motor output switches on, it waits until the mains AC voltage crosses the zero threshold, providing much smoother switch on, reducing switch on noise spikes, and therefore should increase milk pump motor life.
