Energy Savings are on the Moo-ve



Working with a dairy machine company, we have developed some parameters for milking machines which enable energy saving by matching the speed of the motor to the demand.

A simple vacuum sensor is fitted in the line and the onboard PID controller is set to ensure a constant suction is delivered as cows are fitted or removed from the machine. The stringent  criteria for the safety and comfort of the cows being met along with all hygiene legislation.

This has proved a highly successful energy saving project without compromising the milk production process and so it’s happy farmers and happy cows!

APDS work with many types of businesses and sectors, but our goal is always to save energy and reduce costs.
