Gloucestershire-based Autonumis has launched MilkShot, a high volume portion-controlled milk dispenser with undercounter refrigerated bulk milk storage.

This unit, manufactured in the UK, is suited to busy coffee shop sites which are looking to save costs and be more sustainable.

The dispenser should help to speed up serving times as a result of its automated push button operation, says the company. Additionally, milk wastage is designed to be eliminated thanks to the dispenser’s accuracy in delivering portion sizes.

Operating from BIB milk pergals or stainless steel churns, the dispenser should eliminate the need for milk to be delivered to the coffee shop in plastic cartons. Plastic is reduced by 70% with the BIB variant (when compared with milk supplied in two litre plastic cartons) or 100% with the churn option.

The counter-mounted dispense unit has two outlets, each of which offers three programmable portion sizes that are said to be accurate to within plus or minus 1%. It can also operate on free-flow for any custom volume requirements. Laminar flow outlet nozzles should ensure there’s no frothing of the milk and no dripping.

Cleaning, which is required every 24 hours, should be quick and simple with the dispenser’s automated cleaning and rinse cycle. The complete system has been tested and certified to meet all relevant food hygiene regulations. The dispense unit comes with an integrated drip tray (three sizes available), drain kit and an optional jug washer.

The MilkShot’s fridge unit offers several supply options: 3 x 13.6 litre pergal bags or 2 x 10 litre churns and includes a patented universal BIB dispense tube connector. Designed as a high performance commercial refrigeration system, it is interchangeable with standard 600mm-wide catering fridge units.
