What does the vacuum pump do in the milk house?

This is the control panel for the milk house’s vacuum pump. It removes all air from the pipelines and the milking units to create the vacuum needed to milk cows. If you push one button, the vacuum helps to bring the milk from the milking machines to the receiver jar in the milk house.

How does a dairy vacuum pump work?

Vacuum pumps create the negative pressure that helps draw the milk from cows and then transports the milk from the milk receiver to either the receiver bowl or the bulk tank. The airflow created by vacuum pumps also transports water and cleaning solution through the milking system when it is being cleaned.

How is a vacuum pump used?

Vacuum pumps remove air molecules (and other gases) from the vacuum chamber (or the outlet side in the case of a higher vacuum pump connected in series). As the pressure in the chamber is reduced, removing additional molecules becomes increasingly harder to remove.

Vacuum pumps are used to draw milk and power washing equipment on dairy farms. It is estimated that vacuum pumps are responsible for up to 25% of all the electricity used to operate a dairy farm.

Vacuum pumps create the negative pressure that helps draw the milk from cows and then transports the milk from the milk receiver to either the receiver bowl or the bulk tank. The airflow created by vacuum pumps also transports water and cleaning solution through the milking system when it is being cleaned.

Four main types of vacuum pumps are used in the dairy industry: water ring pumps, sliding vane rotary pumps, turbine pumps and rotary lobe or blower pumps. Different pumps are used for different applications because they all operate at their highest efficiency in different scenarios.

As the vacuum increases, vacuum pumps actually become less efficient. That makes it important to operate vacuum pumps at lower levels whenever possible to save energy costs.
