Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR DETERMINING PARAMETERS OF A RINSING PROCESS FOR A MILKING SYSTEM
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for determining parameters of a rinsing process for a milking system, wherein a rinsing fluid circulates in a circuit to be rinsed in the rinsing process. The method comprises the following steps: filling a storage container (11) for rinsing fluid with a fluid up to a predefined filling level; circulating the fluid from the storage container (11), via the circuit to be rinsed and back into the storage container (11); refilling the storage container (11) during the circulation of the fluid up to the predefined filling level, wherein the necessary fluid volume (V20) is determined; and determining parameters of a subsequent rinsing process based on the determined fluid volume (V20). The invention also relates to a device for determining parameters of a rinsing process, which is configured for carrying out the method.
