Hamby / GEA WestfaliaSurge Sheep Bucket Milker
Practical teat cup design is user friendly for the humans and provides fast gentle milking for the sheep. Sliding on the teat cups (liners) causes the vacuum to switch on automatically in one quick easy step with almost no air loss. Exclusive GEA valve technology ensures that the vacuum supply will be immediately stopped should the liners fall off. Direct ventilation at the teat cup allows in a small amount of air to push the milk continuously through the silicone milk hoses to the bucket. This maintains a stable teat end vacuum. Even at high milk flow rates, there is an uninterrupted, smooth flow of milk to protect the udder health of the sheep. The transparent design of the silicone liners, the clear shells and opaque silicone milk hoses allow continuous visual monitoring. Low-vacuum fast milk out for optimum udder health. Single Teat sheep can easily be milked with the GEA TopFlow milking unit.
