CR35 Cluster Remover CR35 Cluster Remover

CR35 Cluster Remover

The CR20 cluster remover is one of the most useful additions to a milking parlour.

They allow the operator to reduce milking times and improve teat health by automating the removal of the milking cluster from the animals.

They can be used on cow, goat and sheep parlours.

Automation for Cows CR35 Cluster Remover

The CR20 cluster remover includes flow and time-based removal, along with conductivity measurement, pulsation control, data connection to allow communication with each other and the Micro M5, and are upgradeable to milk meters.

Control Features:

  • Simple numeric display of milking time (minutes:seconds) and conductivity (mS - millisiemens)
  • 6 keys - automatic milking, manual milking, wash, conductivity on/off, left and right
  • 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
  • User selectable ACR pull off resistance and time
  • Lift to start ACR cylinder input
  • M2 communications bus - enables all CR35 controls to be put into milk or wash from 1 control
  • 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

Upgrade Features:

  • These features are available if the CR35 controls are upgraded to connect to the Micro M5 parlour control system
  • Sending animal numbers and warning flags to CR35 control
  • Sending of milking time and conductivity to Micro M5
  • Upgradeable to milk meter by adding milk meter flask

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
