The tubing assembly consists of 3.5m of 19mm o.d. polyurethane tube. Polyurethane has a very smooth surface for minimum irritation of the cow’s oesophagus. It also withstands all cleaning chemicals and is more rigid the PVC for better ease of entry.
The rumen end of the tube has a fitting for attachment of one of the two supplied weighted end-caps. One cap is 30mm dia ( for young stock) and one 40mm dia ( for mature stock ).
At the top end the tube feeds through a strong plastic tubular gag which has a nose clamp and tie cord for securing firmly to the cow’s nose and jaws.
At the toe end of the tube is a quick-coupling to attach the Bovivet Rumen Drench Pump.
The pump is easily dismantled without tools for maintenance.
