AIRWASH PLUS – UNIQUE DIP AND RINSE SYSTEM

by T H WHITE on February 2, 2021

AirWash Plus is a genuinely unique and outstanding Automatic Dip and Rinse (ADR) system which offers several key advantages not available elsewhere.

A major factor in controlling mastitis, AirWash Plus improves parlour efficiency by automatically dipping teats and flushing liners clean, ready for the next cow. Unlike other systems on the market, AirWash Plus can be installed into ANY make or type of milking parlour, as well as ANY make and type of cluster assembly and liners. It can also be used with ANY sprayable dip. This allows farmers to choose the clusters and liners that suit their cows best.

The AirWash Plus system is being used successfully on farms across the UK to milk thousands of cows every day.

Dramatic improvements in somatic cell counts, mastitis levels and labour savings are possible when the system is used as part of a dairy hygiene programme.

As well as being suitable for all types of parlour and compatible with all types for clusters and liners, AirWash-Plus is also simple to install, either in new parlours or in existing parlours.

How does it work?

1. The cows are milked as normal. When the automatic cluster remover gives the signal that milking has finished, the AirWash Plus programme is initiated.


 

2. As the process begins a special Y-joint releases a measured amount of teat dip which is mixed with compressed air.


3. The compressed air propels the dip through the system towards the milking cluster where it is injected into the short milk tube.

4. The blast of air creates a fine spray of teat dip inside the injector spray-nozzle in the short milk tube of the liner. The dip goes on while the teat is extended and coats the teat end, while both the skin pores and the teat canal are open and receptive to disinfectant and emollients.

5. After the cluster is removed from the cow it returns to the ‘park’ position and the teat cup is
sanitised and rinsed repeatedly with compressed air and water. Dip residue on the inside of the liner is rinsed out and the entire liner is sanitised.
