Milking Equipment

Vacuum Pump Systems

VDrive - Variable Speed

All Pearson vacuum pumps are robustly constructed, highly efficient and are manufactured to the most stringent quality controls. The drive shafts are robust and are cast into the rotor. Large bearings are fitted ensuring a long trouble free operating life. Each vacuum pump has a double oil reservoir unit supplying fresh oil lubrication that guaranties minimum wear. Should the primary translucent oil bottle indicate empty, then there is enough oil in the secondary oil reservoir to maintain the vacuum pump for a further time period.

VDrive Vacuum Saver System The Pearson VDrive System is a frequency controlled vacuum pump system developed to only give the required vacuum needed to run the units in operation. While milking, the machine needs much less vacuum, than when the machine is washing due to air loss . Installing the VDrive unit will manage the required vacuum needed by the machine. Coupled with Pearson’s individual smart pulsation control on their ACR and Electronic Meter systems, savings of up to 75 % power usage may be made on the electric motors running the vacuum pumps, leading to great savings on the environment and great savings in your pocket.

Pearson offer a range of vacuum pump units depending on the requirements for the milking plant.. The EPM 60 , B4 and B5 pumps make up the family. All vacuum pumps may be controlled by the VDrive system.

The VDrive system is available in three phase and single phase power supplies .

All Pearson Machines are supplied with Stainless steel vacuum tanks to ensure long life and durability.
