Cluster Removers

Available to suit different sizes and types of milking parlours the ATL range of cluster removers allow the operator to improve teat health and reduce milking ties by automatically removing the milking cluster from the animals

The ATL Cluster Remover Systems are simple and easy to use with a large, bright LCD display unit.  The control units are IP65 rated and are designed to withstand the rigours of a milking parlour environment.

Suitable for cow, sheep and goat parlours the ATL Cluster Remover Systems have three different options:

CR10 Cluster Removers

Our entry level system which has a flow and time based removal

Control Features:

  • Simple numeric display of milking time (minutes:seconds)

  • 3 keys - automatic milking, manual milking and wash

  • Simple, bright LCD display

  • 2 automatic milking modes - 1 time-based cluster removal and 1 sensor-based cluster removal

  • Time-based cluster removal does not require a sensor

  • Accurate milk flow measurement for ACR timing

  • User programmable wash time

  • User selectable ACR pull off resistance and time

  • Automatic idle after user selectable period of inactivity

  • Milk sweep / purge

  • Small form factor, allowing for easy installation into existing parlours

  • Suitable for all herd sizes (small or large)

  • Can be retrofitted into abreast, herringbone or rotary parlours

Sensor Features:

  • Free-flowing sensor incorporating shut-off valve

  • The tangential entry and the wide discharge tube allow smooth passage and evacuation of high milk flows

  • The sensor shape reduces vacuum fluctuations

  • The diaphragm shape is designed to prevent accidental closure and allow rapid response, facilitating instant detachment of the milking unit

  • Swirl effect on inside surfaces of sensor induces effective washing

  • The vacuum nipple can be positioned in any direction

  • Milk inlet and outlet nipples - 21mm x 16mm

CR20 Cluster Removers

In addition to the flow and time based removal the CR20 also includes conductivity measurement and pulsation control.

Control Features:

  • Simple numeric display of milking time (minutes:seconds) and conductivity (mS - millisiemens)

  • 4 keys - automatic milking, manual milking, wash and conductivity on/off

  • Simple, bright LCD display

  • 5 LED windows for auto milking, pulsation, ACR, milk flow and conductivity milking

  • 2 automatic milking modes - 1 time-based cluster removal and 1 sensor-based cluster removal

  • 3 manual milking modes (ACR disabled, conductivity pull off disabled, ACR and conductivity disabled)

  • Time-based cluster removal does not require a sensor

  • Accurate milk flow measurement for ACR timing

  • Full pulsation control - 30 to 180 pulses per minute (ppm) and 35% to 75% ratios

  • Pulsation stop - pulsator only on when milking or washing

  • Stimulation pulsation

  • Washing pulsation - ability to run pulsation frequency at lower rate during washing to reduce liner wear

  • User programmable wash time

  • Wash time elapsed and remaining displayed (minutes:seconds)

  • User selectable conductivity warning and pull off levels

  • User selectable ACR pull off resistance and time

  • Lift to start ACR cylinder input

  • Automatic idle after user selectable period of inactivity

  • Milk sweep / purge

  • Small form factor, allowing for easy installation into existing parlours

  • Suitable for all herd sizes (small or large)

  • Can be retrofitted into abreast, herringbone or rotary parlours

Sensor Features:

  • Free-flowing sensor incorporating shut-off valve

  • The tangential entry and the wide discharge tube allow smooth passage and evacuation of high milk flows

  • The sensor shape reduces vacuum fluctuations

  • The diaphragm shape is designed to prevent accidental closure and allow rapid response, facilitating instant detachment of the milking unit

  • Swirl effect on inside surfaces of sensor induces effective washing

  • The vacuum nipple can be positioned in any direction

  • Milk inlet and outlet nipples - 21mm x 16mm

CR25 Cluster Removers

Designed for jar milking parlours the CR25 Cluster Removers also include the option to control jar valves.

Control Features:

  • Simple numeric display of milking time (minutes:seconds) and conductivity (mS - millisiemens)

  • 6 keys - automatic milking, manual milking, wash, conductivity on/off, transfer milk and hold milk

  • Simple, bright LCD display

  • 7 LED windows for auto milking, pulsation, ACR, milk flow, conductivity milking, data and dump line

  • 2 automatic milking modes - 1 time-based cluster removal and 1 sensor-based cluster removal

  • 3 manual milking modes (ACR disabled, conductivity pull off disabled, ACR and conductivity disabled)

  • Time-based cluster removal does not require a sensor

  • Accurate milk flow measurement for ACR timing

  • Full pulsation control - 30 to 180 pulses per minute (ppm) and 35% to 75% ratios

  • Pulsation stop - pulsator only on when milking or washing

  • Stimulation pulsation

  • Washing pulsation - ability to run pulsation frequency at lower rate during washing to reduce liner wear

  • User programmable wash time

  • Wash time elapsed and remaining displayed (minutes:seconds)

  • User selectable conductivity warning and pull off levels

  • High conductivity automatically switches on hold milk so operator can dump milk if required

  • User selectable ACR pull off resistance and time

  • Lift to start ACR cylinder input

  • Meridian 2 communications bus - enables all CR25 controls to be put into milk or wash from 1 control

  • Includes outputs to control jar valves

  • Automatic idle after user selectable period of inactivity

  • Milk sweep / purge

  • Small form factor, allowing for easy installation into existing parlours

  • Suitable for all herd sizes (small or large)

  • Can be retrofitted into abreast, herringbone or rotary parlours

Sensor Features:

  • Free-flowing sensor incorporating shut-off valve

  • The tangential entry and the wide discharge tube allow smooth passage and evacuation of high milk flows
