The system of milk dividing plates or discs used in the separating bowls of the ''Alpha" De Laval
machines makes all the difference in the world in the efficiency and general practicability of the cream
A virtually complete separation, without loss of a material amount of butter-fat in skim-milk, is
possible only with the "disc" type of separator. This is particularly true with separation at low temper
ature or in running heavy cream.
The "disc" construction at the same time permits of the separating bowl being made smaller and
run at much less speed. 25,000 rev. will not accomplish as good results in the same bowl without discs
as 6,000 rev. with them. Hence the "Alpha" disc machines require only about one-third the power.of
other separators, use only about one-half the fuel in power operation, and are three times as durable
and easy to keep in repair.
The closer work of the "disc" system insures a smoother cream and a complete removal of dirt and
fibrous matters, thus producing a higher quality of butter than is possible with any other separator or
creaming system. The universal prize winning record of "Alpha" made butter bears witness to this
The "Alpha" De Laval machines are as superior in mechanical construction as in scientific principle.
The De Laval factories are reckoned among the finest machine shops in the world. The De Laval ma
chines are not made for "cheap" sale and the item of cost does not enter into their construction, finish
or completeness. They are simply the best that can be made.
The attention of the public is called to the difference between De Laval Separator and other make-3,
both in capacity and price.
