How to clean your cow milking machine?

Updated: Mar 20

Step 1 / Rinsing:

Don't forget to take the milk away!

Turn on the cow milking machine before starting the cleaning. Put the clusters in a bucket of warm, clean water. Open and close the rubber valve of the claw a couple of times. You can check the water flow through the transparent plastics. Take the clusters out. Open and close the rubber valve a few times until no water is left in the hoses. Turn off the milker and wait for the pressure to drop. Empty the bucket.

Step 2 / Alkaline Cleaning:

Restart the milking machine. Add the recommended amount of alkaline-based detergent to a bucket of hot water. Check the detergent instruction manual to find out the volume and the hot water temperature. Detergents produced for the dairy industry are suitable for milking machines. Put the milking clusters in the bucket and repeat the same processes as Step 1.


Step 3 / Rinsing:

Repeat Step 1 with hot water (at the same temperature as Step 2)


Step 4 / Acid Cleaning: You can use acid-based detergents to prevent the milk stone once a week. Check the detergent instruction manual to find out the volume and the hot water temperature. Detergents produced for the dairy industry are suitable for milking machines. Put the milking clusters in the bucket and repeat the same processes as Step 1. Repeat Step 3 after acid cleaning.
