The efficiency of charcoal coolers for holding cream on farms

Few, F.G. (1945) The efficiency of charcoal coolers for holding cream on farms. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 2 (3). pp. 190-197.



For some considerable time charcoal coolers have been used for the holding of cream on dairy farms in the Wowan district, which is situated south-west of Rockhampton. Investigations were conducted during February and March, 1945, for the purpose of ascertaining the requirements in design and construction, the procedure needed for most efficient operation, and the possibility of extending the area of profitable use of such coolers. As a result of the investigations it has been possible (Few, 1945) to indicate to farmers the range of usefulness of charcoal coolers, details of their design and construction, and particulars regarding their use. The purpose of this paper is to present and discuss the data secured.
