Automated teat dipping and backflushing milking unit

The Apollo™MilkSystem is an innovative, automated milking unit exclusive to GEA Farm Technologies. This first-of-its-kind product incorporates patented technology to automatically apply post-dip, through the head of the liner at the end of milking, and automatically backflush after detach — facilitating a superior milk harvesting process every time the cow enters the parlor.

With the Apollo™MilkSystem:

The results provide dairy producers:

The Apollo™MilkSystem allows you to focus your team on other areas of the operation. With less time spent on the repetitive task of manually dipping cows, you can reassign milkers to other duties in the parlor or around the dairy, without sacrificing parlor performance. In fact, automation of the post-dip process streamlines operator procedures, which can increase parlor throughput. It also allows your operators to devote their complete attention to cow prep, which benefits udder stimulation and milk flow, and can also aid in getting more cows through the parlor.

Approved, accepted and safe. In addition to its proven safety, Apollo sets itself apart from the competition with its separation technology. With this technology, a patented milk safety valve is used to separate the teat dip or backflush sanitizer from raw milk – preventing contamination and ensuring milk safety.

The milk safety valve on the Apollo™MilkSystem is approved by the Atlantic‑Midwest Dairy Equipment Review Committee (AMDERC), and therefore accepted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and State Inspectors.
