New-Style Claw Milks Each Quarter Separately
New from New Zealand is the Isolator Milking Claw, being hailed as a "breakthrough" in mastitis prevention and control.
A special isolater device in the claw prevents milk from being splashed from infected quarters and spreading the infection," explains Ken Addie, president of Ken-Way International, importer-distributor of the new device.
Milk enters the Isolator body, which is divided into four sections, from the inflation. Each quarter drains into a separate exit hole and spiral port before joining the milk from the other three quarters in the collection chamber. The spiral ports and silicone diaphragm seal prevent the milk from backflowing into the other quarters.
The silicone diaphragm also balances the pulsation vacuum across the liner during the milking phase of pulsation, which also prevents back movement of milk, Addie points out.
The claws sell for $190 and can be used with your existing inflations, shells, hoses and pulsators.
