IQ Milking Cluster

IQ's revolutionary four-way technology ensures that you always have maximum milk quality, quantity and udder health. Using it is incomparably easy! Easier attaching, milking and maintenance.

The new milk guide piece has been designed following the natural structure of a cows udder. It is sub-divided into four guide chambers. The milk flows directly and quarter individual to the outlet. Thanks to the incline in the respective cluster chamber this process is faster and much more gentle.

Features & Benefits

Maximum milk quality - smarter vacuum control significantly reduces milk contamination.  Vacuum is greatly reduced when the liner is not attached, which means less manure and other soil/debris is sucked into the milk line. You won't believe how clean your milk filters are with the IQ Milking Unit. 

Improved udder health - with four separate guide chambers there is no threat of teat-to-teat cross contamination of mastitis-causing bacteria.  Unlike conventional milking units, the new IQ unit is subdivided into four quarters, and milk from each quarter is kept separate. 

Holds on any shaped udder - the short milk tubes are longer which allows proper placement on virtually any udder shape.  The unit weight is ideally distributed 80% on the teat and 20% in the claw. Plus, better unit alignment means fewer unit slips and squawks. 

Easy maintenance - unique and patented liner connection makes liner changes quick and easy.  Shells, liners, and air dividers can be pre-assembled to allow liner changes in minutes instead of hours. 

Faster milk-out times - improved vacuum stability increases flow rates and the sharper angle of the milk chamber speeds flow to the milk line. 

Quieter operation - the automatic vacuum shifting system makes for virtually noise-free milking - even during attachment or during a kick-off. 

More reliable performance - the slim profile of this unit is harder for cows to kick-off.
