Melasty Cow Acrylic Shell
Why transparent teat cup shell?
Melasty Cow Milking Cluster Acrylic Shells (240cc):
1.- Allows you to see the pulsation rhythm in the liners.
2.- Allows you to see the pulsation rhythmic that stops moving due to the tear vacuum hose attached to the teat cup
3.-Allows you to notice the bending of the liners that may occur.
4.-Allows you to see milk leakage that may occur as a result of a puncture in the liner.
Milking cluster includes:
(4) Short Air Tubes
(4) Acrylic W/Stainless Steel Shells
THE LINER AND SHELLS ROLL ON A MILKING MACHINE:
The farmer attaches teat cups to the cow’s teats for protection. The vacuum tube creates the suction that draws the milk out of the cow’s teats. The milking machine has four teat cups for the four teats that cows have. They have an inner rubber liner and an outer acrylic shell. The teat cup has a thin inner rubber liner and a thicker rubber liner within the tube. This teat cup has two chambers: one inside the liner and one between the acrylic shell and the outside liner.
The milk leaving the cow’s teats travels down the claw. The milk then travels from the claw to the milk tube. The vacuum tube provides constant negative pressure that draws the milk from the gland. When the vacuum tube enters the rest phase, the air entering the tube collapses the rubber liner, massaging the teat and maintaining the blood flow. The teat-end vacuum has 11 to 12 inches of mercury. Incorrect vacuum settings, flooded milk lines and uneven milk-out quarters create air leaks that can cause teat-end vacuum fluctuations. Farmers can identify this phenomenon by a vacuum sound.
The milking machine automatically turns on and off via the pulsator. The pulsator ensures that blood and lymph do not accumulate near the teat, causing damage to the teat. Some milking systems automatically remove the teat cups after the milking machine has extracted all of the milk so that the machine does not damage the cow teat. The farmer should clean the pulsators with regularity to ensure that they function properly.
