Aug 2020 - DeLaval announces its latest Parlour milking system P500, the only parallel parlour in the dairy industry with three options to control the cow flow and no sequence gates in the floor. This innovation is a continuation of the countless customer solutions launched over the years by DeLaval to help farmers around the world in their daily lives.
“The DeLaval Parlour P500 has been designed to do more on a smaller footprint, making it an ideal choice for both new builds and retrofits,” Gavin Strang, DeLaval Market Development Manager, Capital Equipment, said.
The DeLaval P500 features all of the significant functionalities of the existing DeLaval parlour assortment, plus a newly developed synchronized milking process with these patented technologies:
DeLaval SynchroArc™ is more than an open-bottom neck rail with no obstructions. Its design promotes free-cow flow for optimum throughput, offers better indexing of mixed herds, and accommodates a 30 percent smaller footprint.* Ceiling heights can be as low as 2.45m
DeLaval SynchroSweep™ features independently controlled, suspended, non-overlapping sequence gates, which also lift up during milking to minimize stress on cows and components. This design and process creates a quieter environment that can speed up cow-exit cycle times by 56 percent.*
DeLaval SynchroControl™ puts the operation of the milking system at the fingertips of the dairy producer. This feature makes it possible to configure multiple indexing management styles, contributing to its safe, comfortable and efficient operation.
