As every dairy farmer knows, a reliable hot water supply is vital for the effective cleaning of milk lines and storage tanks as well as controlling the Total Bacteria Count (TBC) of the milk produced.  Switching to LPG gives you hot water instantly and whenever you need it, whether it’s 20 or 100 litres and eliminates your hot water storage costs.

The Flogas solution

  • On demand hot water at any temperature (37°C to 80°C)
  • Up to 14 litres of hot water at 80°C per minute
  • Hot water storage costs eliminated
  • Only pay for hot water that is actually used
  • Controller to help you achieve your desired temperature
  • Single energy source for heating
  • Easy and hassle-free changeover process
  • A cheaper alternative to electricity and oil

Easy Installation

This LPG system can be easily installed by fitting an Andrew's Fastflo heater internally or externally, with no requirement for additional weather protection, along with an easy to use controller.
The heaters are connected to the Flogas LPG tank which will be installed on site and can be fitted with a state of the art telemetry system on the LPG tank to monitor your LPG usage. It will alert us when your tank needs to be refilled and we can schedule a delivery in a timely fashion.
