We offer a wide range of parlour wash down kits to suit your budget and requirements. There are two basic methods of washing down your parlour with a pressure system,
High Pressure - typically a high pressure pump is a multi-stage pump which uses small bore hoses (0.5" - 0.75") and uses little water. The water it does use is at a high pressure (around 100psi), but there is not much volume. (10 gallons/minute). This method is ideal for stubborn dirt, and for cleaning your scraper tractor and collecting yard walls etc. this type of system is usually plumbed in with a galvanised main pipe line, with take off points in different parts of the dairy. It would be a system that has to be installed by your dairy engineer.
Volume - as the name suggests, this method typically uses a pump with an impellor arrangement, and a fairly large amount of water (20 gallons/minute), but a low working pressure (around 50 - 60 psi) and large hoses (1" plus). One advantage with this system is that you can use MDPE pipe and fittings, and it is simple for any one to install.
Various options are available from stand alone pumps to full systems which just need plumbing in with MDPE pipe.
Spares are available including hoses, guns, clips and fittings, pipe work, water fittings.
We also service and repair Pumps, and can supply seal kits and impellors by post if you want to repair your own pump.
Our wash down solutions include Grunfos, Agri pumps, Loheat, DeLaval, Kingston Somerset and Springfield Systems.
