    Abstract

    This specification covers commercial bulk milk dispensers for dispensing milk in commercial and institutional food service establishments. These specified commercial bulk milk dispensers are self-contained, manually-operated, gravity-fed, mechanically refrigerated cabinets with lift-up valves used for dispensing refrigerated milks and milk fluid products. Commercial bulk milk dispensers covered in this specification are classified by type, electrical class and size. In this specification, types 1, 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A are determined and covered. For electrical classes of bulk milk dispenser, the classes 1 and 2 are described. Sizes 1 to 3 of milk dispenser are used in this specification to describe commercial bulk milk dispenser. The physical properties of commercial bulk milk dispenser are also covered in this specification wherein the design and manufacturer, the cooling system, the controls, the standards and compliance and the accessories are specified in accordance with agreed requirements and specifications. Sampling, testing, and quality assurance of finished units are also covered in this specification wherein these tests and procedures must be met in accordance with ANSI/UL 471 and NSF/ANSI 20
