TankAssure – Automatic Milk Sampling System

Prompt TankAssure

Automatic Milk Sampling System with RFID and GPS technology

Accurate data of the milk quantity and quality collected by milk tankers from various milk collection points on different routes, is an essential piece of information in the milk value chain. Even minor deviations from the expected milk quantity and quality may hinder effectiveness and profitability of the entire chain of milk collection process.
Prompt has leveraged the RFID and GPS technology, and developed a solution for automatic milk sampling – TankAssure. TankAssure is a closed, containerized and digitally password protected system which consists of 6+1 / 14+1 sampling pumps, and RFID tagged tamper-proof sample vials. It comes in the form of a box which is mounted on the milk tanker, and functions to automatically collect BMC milk samples, record milk quantity (through magnetic flow meter) and milk temperature (through in-built temperature sensor).

Key Features

The entire system is electronically locked (password protected) and can be opened only at the dairy plant through authorized persons only with mobile app.

Prompt Logistics App and /or Prompt AMCS software can be integrated in this system for route management.

The entire operation is controlled by a web-based application system operated through Tablet device. The data can be transferred to the central system at the dairy for further analysis & evaluation.


The bottles and frame are mounted in an insulated enclosure to ensure that the temperature of the milk sample collected is maintained and it does not deteriorate before it reaches the main dairy.

The RFID tag on the bottle stores the location and milk collection details, at the milk collection point, from where the sample has been collected. This data can be read only at the main dairy through RFID reader.



Transparency: The system will show the quantity of milk transferred in the tanker and temperature of milk at the DCS location in real-time – bringing transparency between collection point and Dairy.

Reduction in Sampling Error: As sampling is done automatically, the chances of sampling error are greatly reduced and accuracy of samples is ensured.

Composite Milk Sampling: The system also does automatic sampling of composite milk sample collected from all milk collection points.

Profitability of Dairy: With accuracy in sampling and quantity of milk, the overall effectiveness and profitability of Dairy shall increase.

Minimize Manual Intervention: The data is automatically recorded, hence there is no need to enter data manually, thereby reducing the chances of human error.

Ease of Data Management: The system automatically and digitally records the data which is stored directly in the server.

Farmer Assurance: Due to Auto sampling, milk samples are secured, so farmer and Milk Union can feel assured about getting correct payment for their milk poured.
