Metering System for Milk Collection
Follow the milk - all the way from collection at the farm to the delivery at the dairy with an IT- and pump solution from POUL TARP A/S.
To meet today’s demand for food safety & transparency within the food & dairy industry, POUL TARP A/S offers a complete solution for milk collection and transport registration
covering everything from route planning to milk quality control and sampling at the farm to transport and delivery at the dairy.
The POUL TARP A/S meterings system solution:
The TOC Computer mounted in the drivers cabin keeps the driver informed of today´s route and locations of the milk collection and delivery points.
Our unique pump S12 Computer is mounted in the pump cabin where it controls and monitors the pump speed, where the milk comes from and which tanker compartment it is loaded to, the milk temperature and the on-board sampling system.
All data is automatically forwarded to the MTC program at the dairy where farm data is analyzed and settlements are completed on the basis of the registered milk quantity and quality.
Using the Milk APP it is possible for the driver, the farmer and the dairy to track and monitor the milk tanker and the milk quantity from the moment the milk is collected to it is delivered.

The Pump System
The high capacity pump- & metering system from POUL TARP A/S is designed with a two-pump unit system with two samplers.
The high capacity pump system consists of:
- A S12 computer with two printers. The S12 computer is online with the dairy’s MCT IT-system
- The pump unit has a pumping capacity from 800 l/min. to 1500 l/min.
- The S12 computer controls and regulates the pump preventing the milk to get damaged during pumping and ensures that the milk keeps its quality
- Data is transferred via GPRS to the dairy’s MTC IT-system
- Flow meter
- Air separator
- Liquid detector
- Proportional controlled pumps
- Load sampler and farm sampler
With a TOC computer from POUL TARP A/S in the drivers cabin of the truck it is possible to receive route & collection information from the dairy.
Below shown is a schematic display of a complete pump-system installed in a milk tanker.
The pump-system is equipped with both a sampler for individual farm sampling in order to determine the milk quality from the individual supplier and a Load sampler for full-load sampling to document the quality of the collected milk (Load) present in the milk tanker at any given time:
Track the milk all the way from collection at the farm to delivery at the dairy with an IT solution from POUL TARP A/S
Our TOC Computer which is mounted in the cabin of our milk tankers, informs the drivers, which route to take and also the location of the milk collection points.
While the milk is being pumped into the milk tanker, the S12 Computer takes 1-2 samples for testing in the laboratory. The S12 Computer registers data such as the collection point, the quantity and the temperature.
Data collected from the TOC Computer and the S12 computer is automatically sent to the MTC system, which is administered by the dairy. The route for milk collection, which is available on the TOC Computer is in fact planned by the dairy using the MTC system. The MTC system will also handle the settlement to the farmers and data on the milk quality results. The Milk APP makes it possible for, the driver, the farmer and the dairy to track the milk tanker and the milk quantity from the moment the milk is collected and until it is delivered.
S12 Pump Computer
S12 Computer from POUL TARP A/S gives the dairy traceability in the milk collection, traceability in the milk quality and an accurate measument of the collected milk.
TOC Cabin Computer
TOC Cabin computer from POUL TARP A/S supplies the driver with an on-screen a list of today’s route and helps the driver navigate to the next pick up place/farmer. The dairy can send and receive data from the TOC cabin computer, make route changes etc.

Milk Sampling Solutions
While pumping the milk into the tanker, the S12 Computer takes 1 or 2 samples of the milk. The samples are taken continuously throughout the pumping of the milk, as the milk quality is different at the bottom and at top of the tank. The samples are sent to the laboratory, where the fat and protein content in the milk is analyzed. All data from the samples will be sent to the MTC program, where the dairy can get an overview of the milk quality from the various suppliers.
