Solutions for the Dairy Industry

Agriculture is changing, and technology is playing a greater role in farming. Technidrive Ltd has been working along with many established manufacturers in this sector to develop efficient, reliable and cost-effective control solutions for milking systems, agitators and drive systems.

Challenges in the dairy sector

Remote Power Supplies of single phase 230v. Many farms operate daily from a standard 80-100A 230v domestic supply. This causes many problems such as:

  • High servicing/maintenance costs
  • Poor control on systems
  • Poor efficiency
  • High current spikes
  • Nuisance tripping
  • Restrictions on installing modern robots & variable speed systems

Variable Speed Vacuum Pump Solutions 

Vacuum on demand reduces the losses on the system by using variable speed drives (VSD’s) to change the speed of the motor and pump according to the pressure in the system. The sensor monitors the system pressure and provides feedback to the VSD where we use a specifically tuned PID loop to regulate the vacuum pump speed and provide vacuum on demand.

Technidrive will develop a specific system to suit your needs whether you are an original equipment manufacturer (OEM), dealer, or service engineer or just looking an efficient control system to improve reliability and efficiency of an old DOL system we can provide a cost effective solution.

  • Reduced running costs due to vacuum on demand
  • 230v single phase option using a VSD and a 3 phase
  • 230v motor which means there are no capacitors or centrifugal switch and provide a higher reliability
  • 400v three phase options
  • Can be supplied to suit your control sensors or with a vacuum sensor to suit
  • EMC filters to reduce electrical noise
  • Pre-wired, Pre-setup in IP55 enclosure with simple setup
  • Reduced noise
  • CE marked
