529. Pulsation and milking rate

  • P. A. Clough (a1), F. H. Dodd (a1) and E. W. Hughes (a1)

Extract

The pulsator mechanism of the double-action milking machine causes the rhythmical expansion and collapse of the rubber teat-cup liner during milking by alternately applying a partial vacuum (usually 13–15 in. Hg) and admitting atmospheric air to the space between the rubber liner and the teat-cup shell. The inside of the liner is subjected to continuous partial vacuum.
