Abstract

MILKING machine operation depends mainly on the removal of air from the machine piping and components by the vacuum pump.

When a machine is new it is free from leaks, the pump is of the correct size and driven at a speed designed to give adequate displacement of air for efficient operation.

The air requirements of different makes of machines vary considerably, and the layout and installation are important factors.
