VacuTrax™ Vacuum System Monitor

This patent-pending product provides the progressive and quality conscious dairy farmer a means of continuously monitoring the total health of the vacuum system.

The VacuTrax™ Vacuum System Monitor provides advance warning of pump degradation, improper vacuum regulation/control and system leaks.
