Item #: DPC-102

Published: 2006

Pages: 28

This guideline provides a practical discussion, for dairy producers and equipment dealers of the installation, cleaning and sanitizing of bucket milking systems and around the stable pipelines. The installation sections cover basic information regarding applications and approvals, the electrical power supply, the vacuum system and sanitary piping and components. The recommendations are kept in line with those of 3-A Accepted Practices for the Design, Fabrication and Installation of Milking and Milk Handling Equipment, the Milking Machine Manufacturers Council of the Farm and Industrial Equipment Institute and the American Society of Agricultural Engineers. Subjects discussed pertaining to cleaning and sanitizing include: steps in cleaning mechanical cleaned pipeline systems, cleaning and sanitizing bucket milking machines, cleaning pulsation lines, and troubleshooting cleaning problems. Also provided are: model application forms, scheduled maintenance services for milking and cooling systems, and other useful references. Related Guidelines would be Guideline 2 for basic parlors, Guideline 4 for Double 10 and larger systems and Guideline 70 for small ruminant milking systems.
