DeLaval Cream Separator Manual 1940

  1. Thank You for displaying this manual. It helped me get my cream separator up and running. A local dairy is licensed to sell fresh whole milk. My four year old twins and all of their cousins had a blast watching it work. Then getting to churn fresh butter and hand cranking homemade ice cream. I don’t know who had more fun them or me!

      That was my hope! This type of information can be hard to come by, so I’m glad you were able to find us!!

      From experience, I can tell you my best tip is to keep the milk warm & don’t stop the cones spinning until you’re all done (we would break between to milk cows and it cools the milk and gums up the machine). Last tip is to keep the nut on the top of the cones tight.

      Sounds like your family had great fun!! :)

    Your website displaying the De Laval Cream Separator Instruction Manual has been a great help to us in working with an undated separator. It is probably from the 1940′s era. It resembles the Manual pictures very closely. This particular separator came from a farm in South Dakota. It is now owned by the best ice cream store in Illinois.

    When a kid on a farm in Nebraska, my parents had a De Laval that I cranked hundreds of times. The frequency was twice daily to separate the milk from my dad’s 10 to 15 Holstein cows. I remember listening for the bell while cranking.

    Many thanks for re-producing the manual online.
