Liners are the only parts of a milking system which are in direct contact with the body of animals. As a result, their quality and properties affect milking process and livestock health to a great extent, so it is very important to use high quality liners for milking.

Liners have different varieties and are categorized according to orifice diameter, length, shape, body diameter, constituents and other features.

Why it is important to choose a good liner?

As a liner is opened and closed 2.5 million times during milking process, it deteriorates fast and after a while its orifice and body becomes loose which increases more pressure on animal teat, slips more and leads to problems such as mastitis or more pressure on milking machinery.

As liners are also exposed to heat and chemicals after milking, rubber gets decomposed by corrosive effects of such materials. Also, milk has negative effects on liners. Milk fat is absorbed by liner and so, there will be some residues on it.

What liners should be replaced?

When a rubber liner is used 2000-3000 times for milking, teat cup deteriorates and there will be no resistance against bacteria and pathogens. This causes an increase in somatic cells and mastitis. So, rubber liners must be regularly replaced after milking for 2500-3000 times. It increases livestock health and milk quality.
