pump and plate cooler or bulk tank. Note inlet and
outlet of filter in Figure 1.

2. Filter can be installed either horizontally or vertically

as shown in Figure 2.

Outlet 3. Filter should not be installed in any location which

does not allow filter to drain completely.

down and slope the filter 1-1/2 inches per 10 feet
(13 mm/m) downward toward the outlet as shown in

filter must be sufficiently supported using hooks as
shown in Figure 3.

6. Plan the installation so that when the filter sock is

being removed, the milk residue will fall to the floor
where it may be readily cleaned away.

2. Dual Filter Installation

1. To increase filtering capacity, two filters can be
Inlet installed in parallel as shown in figure 4.

Under average conditions, the filter sock will need to
be replaced after 200 cows have been milked through
one filter sock.

2. Dual filter arrangements should be installed vertically

to permit proper drainage.
Possible 3. When mounting dual filters directly on milk pump,
locations for some means of support to clamp the filters in place
milk filter must be fabricated. The entire weight of both filters
should not be put on the milk pump.
