DISINFECTION AND DECALCIFICATION OF MILKING MACHINE
Citrolive is a liquid concentrate with a single step process used to disinfect and decalcify the Milking Machine. It is a very effective disinfectant because of the synergistic effects of its natural ingredients.
Formation of Ca/Mg salts or salt complexes helps in removal of calcium and magnesium deposits to reduce Milking machines breakdown.
Citrolive works effectively by :
Destructing the phospholipid layers.
Activity strongly increased by an increase in temperature, i.e at 83oC with an exposure time of 15 minutes gives excellent
virucidal, bactericidal, fungicidal, tuberculocidal properties.
Citrolive should be fltted to the machine.
Citrolive should be heated (≥60 C) for efficient results.
Ensure that power and water supply to the machine are operational.
Turn on the machines.
Important steps to be taken into consideration before activating the disinfecting program
Disinfecting routine for the milking machine.
Disconnect from the tank & remove the milk filter.
Rinse cluster & set up for disinfecting routine.
Pre-rinse immediately after milking (before cooling down ), with lukewarm water.
Washing phase (65- 80 c)
Flushing (with cold water, until all chemical residues are removed)
It is not necessary to test residual citric acid if Citrolive is used, since it is a decaying agent which is formulated
in a non-toxic solution.
