World Dairy Expo new products: Milking equipment and supplies

Published on 30 September 2016

Evolution X1 increases milking speed without increasing vacuum levels
Evolution X1 by Conewango combines gentle, low vacuum with high-milking-speed design. This liner is ideal for dairy producers who want a higher-capacity liner with faster milkout.

The shallow vacuum chamber allows for reduced vacuum levels at the mouthpiece for gentler milking, while a two-stage controlled collapse creates more stability with virtually no slip.

The patented short milk tube design with compression ribs and hinge points offers greater flexibility. The oval-bore design shortens barrel wall movement from open to collapse, which creates a quicker response to pulsation and a faster milkout.
