DeLaval Clover ™ liner achieves low, stable vacuum without vent

The DeLaval Clover™ liner performs with a low level of mouthpiece chamber (MPC) vacuum due to its patented design which eliminated the need for a mouthpiece vent, according to a new study.  Low, stable MPC vacuum is essential for good teat health and optimal milking performance.

Presented last month at the National Mastitis Council’s annual meeting in Fort Worth, Texas, the study also found the vacuum level of DeLaval Clover liner to be 33% more stable compared to another liner.

“The study showed a 1.4 inch Hg (4.7kPa) difference in mouthpiece chamber vacuum fluctuation, favoring the DeLaval Clover liner,” said Nathan Brown, Solution Manager, Milk Extraction, DeLaval Inc. “Its more stable vacuum levels mean less liner slips and squawking and a more comfortable milking experience for the cow – all great catalysts for better milk yields.”

The DeLaval Clover liner features large, rounded corners to keep the milk flowing and its thin side walls optimally massage the teats. The new shape eliminates the need for a mouthpiece vent while still delivering both gentle milking as well as high milking performance. Mouthpiece vents are susceptible to gathering manure and other debris, which can enter the milking system and possibly increase bacteria and somatic cell counts.
