The pulsation of any machine is the heartbeat that runs it, it is one of the most important parts of the machine. The Lectron pulsation system and the Hi Flow pulsation systems are both very reliable systems and can be used on all types of parlours for cows, sheep and goats. Both are electronically controlled and are supplied with a fresh air breather line. The average milk yield of the modern day cow has increased substantially, these increased milk yields create higher udder stress that can then lead to a higher risk of health problems. Therefore, it is essential that the pulsation system provides an optimum performance at all time. At Boumatic Gascoigne Melotte Ireland we supply two different types of pulsation. Both 2×2 and 4×0 pulsation are available. The fact we use a fresh air breather line and that our pulsators have a very low consumption of power makes the pulsators very quiet. Both are controlled by a central control box, a transformer to give it power and then either a pulsator per unit with the 2×2 option or a pulsator every 2 units as with the 4×0 option. The central control box allows the ratio of open and close motions on the pulsators to be adjusted and also to change the number of pulses per minute that the pulsator produces. With some of our more advanced automation systems like the GMi or AMi milk yield indicator or the milk meter we have the added bonus of having individual pulsation per unit, meaning if you were only using one unit of the machine then only one pulsator will be going. This reduces noise and cost.
Two types of pulsation controllers are available for the Lectron pulsation system. The Lectron 312 or the Lectron 612 Controllers. The type of controller you use will depend on the parlour you are looking for. The speed and ratio can be controlled by either controller and will work for 2×2 pulsation and 4×0 pulsation. Both Controller work in an alternate flow, meaning that not all pulsators are pulling on the vacuum at the same time, therefore this minimises excessive vacuum use and also reduces milking fluctuations. The 612 controller also has the added function of been able to have variable ratios between the front and rear teats. The 312 controller can control up to 12 units and the 612 can control up to 24 units.
Hi Flow Pulsation:
The Boumatic Hi flow Pulsators are the most effective and easy to maintain pulsators on the market. With very few moving parts it is very easy to put together and take apart by hand and without the use of any tools which reduces maintenance costs greatly. The HiFlow pulsator is ran on 24volt energy. It is only available in 2×2 pulsation meaning there is a pulsator per unit ensuring the most comfortable and complete milk out for your cows.
