8 Ways To Get The Best Out Of Your Liner

  • Make sure the liner tailpiece is the right size for your claw
  • Check the claws for sharp edges. Sharp claws may cause impact damage on the short milk tube. Use emery paper to take off any sharp edges.
  • Always remove the liner from the jetters after cleaning, otherwise you'll get mouthpiece distortion. (It also lets air circulate through the system.)
  • When fitting the liner in the shell, ensure the indicator markers are aligned so the liner isn’t twisted in the barrel.
  • Clean with approved chemicals as per manufacturers’ instructions and use water at the recommended temperature. Cold water does not remove the butterfat!
  • Release the liner tension in the shell at the end of the season if the liners 2,500 milkings are not up.
  • The sun and ozone has an effect on rubber, protect your liners as much as possible.
  • REMEMBER: Change your liners after 2,500 milkings
