Guaranteed 85 Degree Hot Water for Claxton’s Dairy Farm
CALOR is Ireland’s oldest and most trusted supplier of LPG. Calor’s energy advisors have vast experience working with dairy farmers around Ireland to design systems that reduce costs and work for their business, helping to drive down costs and increase environmental sustainability on farms.
One of the most important considerations on a dairy farm is hygiene, large quantities of boiling water are required every day to wash milk lines and bulk milk storage tanks, ensuring hygiene and controlling the Total Bacteria Count (TBC) of milk and minimising contamination risks from Thermoduric Bacteria. Calor LPG-powered Rinnai instant water heaters provide an ideal solution for dairy farmers. They produce a reliable, instant and infinite hot water supply on demand, and minimise the need for chemical detergent use on dairy farms. Given that they run on LPG, Rinnai water heaters are very cost effective. Not only because LPG is a very economical fuel, but also because it is so flexible and quick to use.
Andrew Claxton converted his farm in Stradbally to Calor gas water heaters a couple of years ago and more recently has installed the same system in his new dairy farm in New Ross; “The Calor instant water heaters have been a great benefit to our dairy business. It’s a much more efficient system for us to heat the water we need for plant and bulk tank washing. We have all the hot water we need at any time, day or night and importantly it’s at the right temperature to ensure we maintain the hygiene level we need. We’ve definitely made savings since changing to gas.”
The Calor Rinnai system produces a reliable, instant and infinite supply of hot water on demand, providing temperatures of up to 85°C instantly. As water is only heated when it’s required, efficiency is optimised and hot water storage costs are eliminated. Damien Shirkie, Calor’s farm energy expert has over ten years’ experience in the energy sector and in particular the farming industry: “We are the only energy provider to guarantee an instant supply of hot water with temperatures of up to 85°C A rated achievable instantly. No waiting, no water rationing - you are guaranteed instant hot water at all times. Farmers know better than anyone else that efficiency, sustainability and value are essential to business success, and Calor water heaters can deliver in all of these areas.”
Origin Green and the Sustainable Dairy Scheme are placing greater focus than ever on improving the environmental performance of Irish farms. The Calor LPG solution also delivers in terms of environmental sustainability, as water is heated only when required. Calor’s telemetry system also ensure that users will never run short on gas, as a gauge continuously monitors gas levels. When you need a top-up, a transmitter sends a signal via GSM technology, and your local Calor depot will schedule a fuel delivery at a time convenient for you.
