When it comes to maximizing efficiency on the dairy, a rotary milking system can be a great option. Also known as a rotary milking parlor, these systems make milking a large herd more efficient because cows consistently enter and exit the rotary dairy. Additionally, the operator stays in the same location to perform milking tasks. Thus, this reduces the total time it takes to milk. Quicker milking time ensures the milk is being produced at a lower cost.
Because the milking platform is rotating, a slip ring is needed. United Equipment Accessories (UEA) has many years of experience building slip rings for the unique application requirements of a rotary milking parlor.
Rotary milking parlors quickly and efficiently milk a cow while it travels around a large platform, completing a full circle. Some rotary milking parlors may require many data inputs to manage the data collected during the milking process. The extensive milking system also requires a good deal of power to move the large platform, not to mention the weight of all the cows!
Some dairy parlor slip ring requirements include:
