Disinfecting Vehicles / De-contaminating Personnel (Biosecurity for production sites)

Biosecurity on farms has become a major issue, especially in view of the number and frequency of outbreaks of animal diseases that cause significant operating losses, excessive use of antibiotics, restrictions on consumption and exports, and a collapse in meat prices, not to mention the media coverage, which has a major impact on the industry and is all the more damaging as these diseases can sometimes cross the species barrier and end up infecting humans.

In addition to protecting against contamination from wildlife, pests, etc., it is important to ensure that vehicles (including tyres) are properly disinfected and that personnel entering a site are decontaminated.* 

*Transport can be a major biological risk factor in the spread of pathogens, whether they be viruses such as those responsible for Avian Influenza or Newcastle Disease, bacteria such as Salmonella or parasites.
According to the FAO organisation, 90% of the Avian Influenza virus is spread by vehicles, equipement and people.

The Advantages of Dosatron Technology

The Dosatron proportional dosing pump ensures simple and accurate dosing of disinfectants / detergents in accordance with the approval standards for the various disinfectants (including compliance with the correct dosing and minimum contact time).

The dosage will remain constant regardless of variations in the flow rate and pressure of the water.

Dosatron technology is easy to install and use (since there is no need for an electrical connection at the site entrance) and is the perfect solution for ensuring accurate dosing of detergents and disinfectants, whether they are sprayed manually (with a spray lance) or via a drive-through disinfection tunnel or arch (+ wheel bath) installed at the entrances for vehicles and personnel.

The self-priming Dosatron pump ensures consistent dilution and makes it easy to read and adjust the dosing percentage. It can run empty (without additives) without any risk of damage and is quick & easy to service and maintain.

Tips for installing, Using & Maintaining your Dosatron

  • Install a 300 micron filter before the dosing pump.
  • If installed on a drinking water main line, the installation shall comply with the applicable disconnection standards (non-return system such as Class B disconnectors...).
  • Always rinse with clear water before replacing the detergent/disinfectant.
  • Calculate your maximum spray water flow rate (this depends on the number of nozzles and the flow rate of each nozzle) to select the appropriate Dosatron range..
  • Remember to change the dosing pump injection seals at least once a year.
  • Please contact us for the chemical compatibility of the additives used with the different Dosatron models (Additive Safety Data Sheet).

Recommended Dosing Pumps

Dosing Sodium or Calcium Hypochlorites

Alkaline biocide - Increased effectiveness in water with a pH of less than 7.2 - Usually added before the buffer tank to ensure minimum contact time.
+LC+L(2)CLC installed in parallel to increase the flow range (10 l/h to 6m3/h).
