Less Noise, More Money
MADISON, Wis.- Bou-Matic,
a company of DEC International,
Inc. has developed a way for
dairy producers to save money
while making the world a qui
eter place to live in.
Most dairy operations use
constant-speed vacuum pumps
that turn out much more airflow
(cfm or L/min) than is actually
required for milking and for
cleaning a milking system.
Traditionally, one or more vacu
um pumps are installed in a
milking system to produce a
minimum constant airflow of six
cfm (170 L/min) per milking unit
(teat cups and claw assembly).
Recent scientific research has
determined that the amount of
airflow actually used for "steady
state" milking - when all milk
ing units are attached without
any squawking teat cups or air
leaks - is as little as one or two
cfm (30 or 60 L/min) per unit.
According to Bou-Matic
Marketing Manager Joe Prazak,
"Even a superb, sanitary clean
ing of the milking system
requires as little as two to two- -
and one-half cfm (60 to 70L/min)

per milking unit, if the CI_P sys
tem is properly set and bal
Prazak said, “There are times
during milking, however, when
additional airflow is required,
such as when attaching units or
when there is a squawking liner
or when a milking unit falls off.
Likewise, when cleaning the
milking system there are also
some instances when additional
airflow is needed, such as when
on air injector admits atmos
pheric air into the milk line to
form a wash slug."
As as result of research and
on-farm tests, the ASAE
(American Society of
Agricultural Engineers) and the
ISO (International Standards
organization) have officially
revised their standards to reflect
this new scientific knowledge.
With this new knowledge, it is
no longer necessary to run a vac
uum pump at a constant speed
to produce the maximum
amount of airflow that you may
need for only short periods of
time during milking or cleaning.
