Drinking water circuit sanitation includes descaling, cleaning and disinfection.
Sanitising the water system eliminates the biofilms that build up in the pipelines, but also in the filters and drinkers.
Biofilms are deposits of heterogeneous bacterial community (several families & strains such as E.Coli, Pseudomonas, Campylobacter, Staphylococcus..) solidly fitted on the surfaces thanks to real « anchors » named « pili » or « fimbriae ». The bacterial cells sank in the thickness of the bio-film develop a survival strategy and are protected against external aggressions (disinfectants, chlorine). They are much more resistant to disinfectant than isolated bacteria. These biofilms cause recurrent diseases in livestock and pipe clogging.
The water supply source may be potable, but may become contaminated over time (water temperature & stagnation, low flow conditions, nutrients..) and especially at the end of the circuit when the animals drink (retro-contamination through contact).
Low-dose biocides used in drinking water disinfection (such as chlorination) can only slow down biofilm development, but never prevent it. Hence the need for high-dose cleaning & disinfection (water system & drinkers Sanitation) when cleaning the barn in the absence of animals (respecting the dose and contact time of the disinfectant).
Dosatron proportional dosing pumps guarantee accurate dosing of sanitizers regardless of the variations in water pressure and flow rate.
The non-electric, self-priming Dosatron pumps, which also work with gravity pressure (header tanks), ensure a wide dosing range compatible with the various detergents / descaling agents / disinfectants available on the market. They provide consistent and uniform dilution and make it easy to read and adjust the dosing percentage.
They can be run empty (without additives) without any risk of damage. They are also quick & easy to maintain.
Water-powered proportional dosing pumps manufacturer since 1974. DOSATRON provides you with quality fluid handling equipment, service excellence, a high level of expertise, and customer proximity all over the world.
