Repair kit for pulsator by Melasty

Save some money fixing your pulsator with a repair kit!


Benefits of an effective pulsation system include:

  • Cows are milked out in the least amount of time.
  • Pain and discomfort felt by the cow when milk flow ends is minimized.
  • The fluid that can collect in the teat tissues when there is no milk flow (potentially causing teat end damage and mastitis) is reduced.

How pulsation works

The pulsation system allows cyclical changes in pressure (vacuum) in the chamber around the liner. This causes the teat cup liner to open allowing milk to flow, then closes the liner again around the teat, massaging the tissues and reducing congestion.

All pulsation systems are made up of a pulsator (an air switching device), a source of vacuum, and connecting pipelines and flexible pulse tubes that connect the pulsator to the pulsation chamber, formed between the teat cup shell and liner.

The purpose of pulsation is to limit the amount of congestion and oedema occurring in the teat tissues during machine milking, which can lead to cow discomfort, teat congestion and potentially teat end damage (hyperkeratosis). Pulsation helps maintain a high rate of milk flow from the teat within each pulsation cycle and helps stimulate good milk let-down.

As with all machinery, maintenance of pulsators is important. Ensure milking machinery is completely assessed, and faults rectified, at least once every 12 months.
