The idea for Dairy Geyser came about when a dairy farmer approached one of the founders, Martin Deady, at his pressure washing business, indicating that the traditional batch electrical water heating system was no longer viable for current dairy sterilisation demands. It could not provide the large quantity of hot water at constant high temperature now needed. This problem was compounded by the imminent banning of chlorine as the active ingredient in dairy detergents from the hygiene process.
In 2017, the Irish manufactured Dairy Geyser, designed by Irish Dairy experts over a number of years, was commercially launched at the National Ploughing Championships. It was immediately crowned the 2017 overall product of the year at the National Dairy show. Since then, hundreds have been sold onto Irish dairy farms and it is stocked by all major co-ops.
Since the initial success, Dairy Geyser has continued its innovation by developing three separate models and introducing the hybrid energy fusion system in line with its aim of increasing savings and decreasing emissions. Future plans include powering the machine on methane gas produced on farms, totally eliminating emissions.
Martin Deady is from Cork. He worked in the steel fabrication industry before becoming a Karcher agent for Ireland. He is the inventor and current managing director of Dairy Geyser.
