Modern milking machines "DeLaval" appeared in our market relatively recently and quite quickly gained a solid audience of fans. Swedish equipment in general, and the company "Delaval" in particular, has been famous for its quality for more than a hundred years. But for a man, when he buys a milking machine, it is important to know the specific parameters. And then we will try impartially, putting aside all the advertising tricks, to understand the advantages of the Swedish milking machines.
Why these devices
First, a few words about history. The first milking machines "DeLaval" were born in 1894. The company itself was established in 1883. Gustaf De Laval and his companion Oscar Lamm stood at its source. After a series of transformations and renames, we are now dealing with the international corporation "Delaval", which is engaged in the production and maintenance of a full range of equipment for animal husbandry.
We will not argue that the milking equipment of this company is very affordable. Quality things can not be cheap. For example, the price of a mobile portable model MU100 fluctuates around 75,000 rubles. But it is suitable for milking cows and goats. Absolutely on all models of milking units a double vacuum system (Duovac) is installed, which automatically switches milking to a sparing mode.
Simply put, if the owner did not turn off the machine in time, then at the end of milking, the system goes into a gentle mode, and the udder of the animal will not be injured.
Equally important is the presence of an extensive dealer network. As a result, a person purchasing DeLaval equipment can firmly count on professional service.
The company "Delaval" is represented by a number of models, but the most sold are the MU100 and MU480. The latter refers to professional systems for medium and large farms, with which we will begin.
Of the main characteristics of this professional complex are the following:
- the aforementioned Duovac system, better known as reverse vacuum;
- sensors of the level of intensity of the milk flow;
- fully automated pulsation system with electronic control;
- model MU480 is fully adapted to the electronic system of control and management of the DelPro herd.
In addition, if the machine is integrated into the DelPro system, then it is able to identify the cow and, based on the experience of previous milkings, automatically select the optimal milking mode for it. Moreover, all this information in a wireless, remote mode immediately goes to the central computer.
The company provides a choice of suspension parts, depending on the speed of lactation of the whole herd and even a particular animal.
Model MU480 is equipped with milk yield meters with reference to a specific cow. Plus there is the possibility of automatic sampling of milk.
Another popular model from DeLaval is the MU100 milking machine. This unit is more designed for farms and mini-farms. A model was developed specifically for cows with a tethered way of keeping. A special pride of the "Delaval" is the unified HP102 pulsator, which comes in conjunction with the Duovac unit and is installed specifically on the MU100.
Owners of small farms and subsidiary farms appreciate this model from "Delaval" for the presence of a mobile system. Simply put, all this equipment is based on a special trolley with reliable wheels, and a person does not need to strain, dragging heavy devices from cow to cow. Plus, according to the farmers, the engineers of the service center come without question even to the most remote villages.
We hope that the information on these models from "DeLaval" you liked.
