Milk Silo

Cooling and storing large quantities of milk

In addition to Mueller's range of horizontal milk cooling tanks, we also offer an extensive selection of high-quality, vertical milk silos. These silos are specially designed to cool and store large quantities of milk in places where space is limited.

The Mueller silo combines fast cooling with very low energy consumption through Mueller Temp-Plate® cooling plates that are installed in the lower part of the tank. To generate even more cooling capacity, the milk silo is available with a side evaporator.

The Mueller milk silos are available with capacities from 12,000 to 60,000 litres.
