Milk level checked by digital dipstick

INSTANT read-out of milk volume in the bulk tank is provided by Japys electronic meter.

The digital dipstick measures volume by means of a float, which sets up an electric current according to the height of liquid in the tank. Digital readings are displayed on a separate tank-mounted liquid crystal display panel.

Available as an optional extra on all new Japy bulk tanks over 900 litres (198gal) capacity, the digital dipstick is claimed to be accurate to within two litres in every 1000 (+/-0.2%). Price is £800 (01296-436101).
