Food processing machinery - Bulk milk coolers on farms - Performance, safety and hygiene requirements

SIST EN 13732:2022 (MAIN)


Agricultural enterprises operating in the livestock sector have to solve many problems related to ensuring their correct operation. company Animal products require special storage conditions. In particular, we can talk about dairy products. If you are involved in the production of bulk milk, you should familiarize yourself with this international standard.


1.1 This document specifies the design, performance, safety, and hygiene requirements and associated test methods for refrigerated bulk milk coolers. NOTE Information Annex J contains some elements related to the evaluation and calculation of energy consumption. This document covers all significant hazards, incidents and events associated with on-farm milk coolers when used as intended and under conditions of abuse reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Section ). This applies to air-cooled condensing units and automatically controlled refrigerated milk tanks intended for installation on farms or milk collection points. This applies to two-milk (2 h), four-milk ( 8 h) and six-milk (72 h) containers, where cooling takes place completely (non-pre-chilled milk) or partially in the tank. This also applies to tanks with continuous milking (eg robotic milking).


1.2 This document does not cover:- mobile containers; - containers intended to be turned upside down for emptying;

- equipment to deliver milk to the tank;

- equipment for pre-cooling milk;

- risks arising from the use of energy other than electricity;

- the pressure aspect of vacuum containers (ie containers whose interior is designed to operate under atmospheric pressure).


1.3 The noise is not considered a serious hazard but is important for milk coolers. Therefore, this document includes the information in Section 7.1 and Annex A about the manufacturer's declaration about the noise level of the chiller.


1.4This document does not cover calibration requirements for a tank used as a payment system.

1.5 This document does not apply to on-farm milk coolers manufactured before the date of its publication in EN format.


Industrial production of dairy products is a complex technological process that requires many nuances. To make it easier to adapt your work to international requirements. If you are interested in the international standard mentioned above, please follow the link below.


Electric power tools, hand tools and lawn and garden machines security Part -2: Particular requirements for hedge trimmers

SIST EN 628 1- -2:2019/A11:2022 (AMENDMENT)


Modern agricultural complex is a high level of modernization of its production. Modern equipment makes it possible to obtain a high-quality product in larger quantities. This situation has become possible thanks to companies that produce equipment for farmers. If you are such a company, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with this international standard.


2021-0 -12: This PRAB contains general changes to EN 628 1 -2:2019/A1 (PR=73662)DOW=DOR 8 months Agricultural machinery manufacturing is a fairly competitive market that gives the consumer a choice .


Therefore, companies must be able to adapt to the current needs of the market. The international standards that we regularly update can help you with this. You can read the full text of this document by following the links below.


Vapor products - Determination of e-liquid vaporized mass and aerosol collected mass

ISO 24197:2022 (MAIN)


One of the natural processes occurring in agricultural products is product evaporation. However, this process must be regulated and defined. To properly manage it, you should familiarize yourself with this international standard. This document specifies a method for measuring the masses of vaporized e-liquid and aerosol collected from vapor products. It does not specify the vapor product being used, the operating settings of the vapor product(s) or the e-liquid. NOTE Implementation of this document may be required for preliminary analyses. Some technological processes can be more complex. Therefore, international standards can be useful. One such useful document is the aforementioned standard. If you have questions about whether you should use it in your work, you can ask our experts on our website.


Agricultural sprayers — recording of spray measurement parameters

ISO 4444 :2022 (MAIN)


Modern agriculture actively uses such devices in its work as sprayers. Their purpose of use may be different, but the companies involved in their production must meet certain requirements. In particular, we can talk about the provisions described in this international standard. This document specifies requirements for electronic measurements (during spraying) and recording of user-controlled spray parameters that affect spray drift when intended for certain drift reduction techniques (DRT). The measured and recorded values ​​can be used to compare the injector configuration with the allowed regulations for a given DRT. The document is suitable for spraying both field and tree and shrub plants.


This does not apply to handheld and portable sprinklers. This document deals with the following parameters:


a) injection pressure (pressure of injection fluid and air in dual fluid nozzles);

b) nozzle height (growths of crops);

c) rotation speed of fan (for air-powered sprinklers);

d) nozzle travel speed.


This document does not define:

- the exact duration of the storage period;

— verification of measured and recorded parameters;

— data format and data exchange requirements, as they are covered by other ISO standards. This document does not specify which of the four parameters to monitor.


This International Standard is a very useful document that manufacturers of agricultural sprays should consult. Since these devices are widely used in agricultural work, you must pay attention to the parameters that they must meet. You can read the full text on our website.
