Modern milking machines extract milk from the dairy cow by applying a vacuum to the teat creating a pressure difference that results in milk flowing from the teat. Vacuum is applied by placing the teat into a cup in which the interior of the cup is subjected to a vacuum. The vacuum must be periodically reduced or removed to provide the teat with a rest period. The rest period is required because the vacuum causes the fluids (blood and other fluids) to accumulate in the teat causing congestion. Modern conventional milking machines attempt to provide this rest period by periodically applying a higher pressure (atmospheric) to the exterior of the cup causing the cup to collapse toward the teat. The typical conventionalmilking machine will thereby reduce the vacuum level on the teat.The periodic liner action created by the pulsing of higher pressure on the exterior of the liner is provided by apulsates.
