Double beam roller system

The iFLOW system is hailed as the trouble-free system that goes and goes, offering you the lowest total cost of ownership of any rotary platform on the market.

A simple, but clever modular system, it’s low maintenance and provides efficiency and flexibility for growing operations. In most circumstances, it only requires an annual service.

Trouble-free operation

Cups on iPUD

The iFLOW consists of a reinforced concrete deck on a raised plinth. The milking machine is mounted under the platform, so it’s physically protected and easily accessible for maintenance. It runs quietly and is hard wearing.

Under the platform is a subway roller carriage system. Heavy duty nylon rollers run between the upper and lower steel beams (double ‘I’ beam), with tensioners distributed evenly to maintain correct roller alignment. One roller every 600mm ensures an even distribution of the platform weight, meaning less wear on rollers. Also, it is equipped with the largest circumference drive wheels on the market, so there is less pressure on the beams to drive the platform, resulting in less wear and tear.

The use of nylon rollers means there’s no steel on steel, no wear strip is required and there are no bearings. Again, that’s less wear and tear, plus, fitted with an automatic lubrication system, there is no requirement for messy manual oil lubrication. Basically, the iFLOW design relies on simplicity, strength and ergonomics to ensure a long life and trouble-free operation.
