Vacuum Pump Systems
Blower Vacuum Pumps
The Waikato Milking System range of blower vacuum pumps are designed to be robust and reliable. Designed specifically for vacuum applications and suited to dairy farm conditions, the four pump sizes available offer airflow from 1000 to 11500 Litres per minute. With this type of capacity, only 1 pump is required for even the largest dairy.
Optioned with a variable speed drive like the Waikato SmartDRIVE device, the blower pump will operate quietly while producing reliable on demand vacuum and speed control.

• Heavy duty design
• Can be controlled by a Frequency drive
• Low maintenance
• Very little oil required
• Clean running
• Environmentally friendly
• Works well with SmartDRIVE
Control vacuum pump speed, reduce the noise and save money
A Waikato SmartAir variable speed vacuum pump controller is a highly specialised control system designed to dynamically control the operation of a vacuum pump. Using digital sensors the milking system vacuum is continually monitored and the vacuum pump speed adjusted according to air flow demand. Ideally suited for use with positive displacement vacuum pumps the system not only helps improve milking but saves valuable energy and reduces pump maintenance costs.
Enclosed in a high quality IP65 rated stainless steel lockable cabinet a Waikato SmartAir variable speed vacuum pump controller is supplied with four fixing lugs and is easily mounted onto a wall. The system works by constantly measuring the milking system vacuum level from a point nearest the receiver and adjusting the vacuum pump speed to accurately maintain a pre-set vacuum level. A digital pressure sensor relays a signal to the controller that responds instantly to even the smallest change. Using the latest electronic touch screen technology programming changes can be made easily and quickly. Manual – Milk or Wash mode is selectable.
There are good reasons to include a Waikato SmartAir variable speed vacuum pump controller in your specifications. Milking and animal health is improved as a result of reliable and stable milking vacuum. A constant set-point milking vacuum is assured. You benefit from considerable power savings to operate the vacuum system, up to 47%. The vacuum pump runs quietly and maintenance is reduced.
SmartDRIVE Vacuum Pump Controller
A Waikato Milking Systems SmartDRIVE Vacuum Pump Controller is a specialised control system designed to dynamically control the operation of your vacuum pump.
Using digital sensors the milking system vacuum is continually monitored and the vacuum pump speed adjusted according to airflow demand.
A highly advanced device, the SmartDRIVE vacuum pump controller works best with a positive displacement vacuum pump by taking advantage of its instantaneous airflow response capability. Our controller not only helps improve milking but also saves valuable energy and reduces pump maintenance costs.
• Enclosed in high quality stainless steel, lockable cabinet
• Touch screen displays green under normal conditions – switches to red if fault detected
• Selectable milk or wash mode
• Vacuum stability greater than standard regulator system
• Power savings of up to 47%
• Stable vacuum improves milking and udder health
• Constant set point milking vacuum is assured
• Easily program changes or software updates
• Low vacuum pump speed and noise means quieter milking environment
