The compact anti-spill feed dosator
Interesting for DeLaval
Bumping against the milking robot or the concentrate feeding station in order to try to get a few extra pellets after the feed dispensing has stopped, can be very frustrating for dairy farmers. The result is a broken feeding station, cows that are getting more feed than is good for them and a great deal of unrest in the entire parlour.
The Black-V RIM tackles this problem! The name says it all; this product is the tried and trusted compact feed dosator Black-V combined with the new RIM motor.
The Black-V RIM is design fitting in very small spaces, like for example it fits very nice in the VMS milkrobot or DeLaval feed station. The Black-V RIM does not have a concentrate stock such as the PipeFeeder. Because of that the dispenser is very robust and efficient, the dispenser consist of: RIM-motor, auger with a variable screw blade, auger cup and an option for an extra outlet.
Black-V RIM is anti-spill. No more pellets are wasted. The RIM motor ensures that the time pulse from the control is converted into a rotation that drives the auger. The collection tray that is mounted onto the auger is subsequently after one rotation again in the correct position and no pellets fall over the edge. Now when cows bump against the dosator, pellets are no longer released and so they are not rewarded for this undesired behaviour.
The Black-V is not only anti-spill, it is also very precise. The plastic auger ensures that 50 grams is dispensed every rotation. The total amount of feed concentrate can be spread out in small portions over the feeding time, which stimulates the DeLaval dropper system.
Installation and user-friendliness
The Black-V RIM ensures for a mechanical anti-spill system in contrast to an electronic solution, as previously was the case with the DosPrint. The Black-V RIM does not contain any complicated circuit board, which makes it easy to calibrate. In its development, thought has also gone into the ease of installation and speed. The colours of the cables, for example, correspond with the colours of DeLaval cables. This makes this system easy to connect according to our “Plug and Play” principle.
