'A New Way to Wash'

October 5, 2011

DeLaval is introducing “a new way to wash” with a Reduced Temperature Detergent (RTD) for milking system cleaning here at World Dairy Expo this week.

The product could revolutionize dairy sanitation, since it requires water temperatures of just 113°F water to properly clean pipelines and milking units. This offers tremendous water heating savings over conventional cleansers that require temperatures of 167°F. The lower temperature water may also put less stress on sensitive components such as teat cup liners and rubber gaskets, and help extend the life span of these components, say DeLaval engineers.

DeLaval has applied for a patent on the RTD technology. RTD is moderately priced between low-end, generic detergents and premium grade branded products. For more information on DeLaval products, click here.
