Dosatron Solutions  – Livestock


livestock-dosatron

For more than 30 years, Dosatron has been contributing to improving the zoo technological performances of your livestock by guaranteeing control over doses of treatments administered through drinking water, which is the ideal distribution method. In all kinds of livestock (poultry, pork, cattle, rabbits, etc.), the Dosatron proportional dosing pump will enable you to dose treatments such as antibiotics, probiotics, enzymes, supplements (vitamins, minerals, etc.) and to vaccinate animals ie vaccines that can be administered through drinking water.

The proportionality of Dosatron pumps guarantees the correct dose independently of pressure and water flow variations (animal consumption). Dosatron pumps are self-priming and not very sensitive to degassing products, they guarantee uniform in line dilution, enable a direct readout and easy adjustment of the required dosing percentage, can operate empty without any risk of deterioration and maintenance is easy and fast at any time.

Dosatron offers a range of special purpose pumps accepting flows varying from 5 l/h to 20 000 l/h at pressures varying from 0.3 bars to 10 bars, dosing levels from 0.07% to 25% depending on your treatments, and new materials resistant to the most highly concentrated organic acids.

Technical Flexibility

For every type of livestock, there is a particular pump model and an installation adapted to the building configuration, water consumption of the animals and solubility or aggressiveness of the dosed products. Dosatron has developed other options such as PVDF pump bodies, seals and special alloys, micro-dosing (which is recommended for chlorination, acidification, hatchery health applications ). Please call us for the choice of options.

The Dosatron proportional dosing technology guarantees correct dosing and is independent from water pressure and flow variations. Dosatron pumps are self-priming up to 4 m, appropriated for high viscosities, insensitive to degassing products, guarantee homogeneous solutions, allow easy reading and adjusting of the requested dosing rate and can work without product (no risk of damaging the pump).

Hygiene & Disinfection - Click to expand

Dosatron can be used for secure dosing of disinfecting detergents or acids for pipe sanitation and descaling purposes (during depopulation period), building humidification (through the fogging system), disinfection of vehicles and personnel at the entry to breeding farms, disinfection of hatcheries and equipment, etc.

The Dosatron technology enables precise and uniform dosing regardless of variations in the pressure or flow in water networks. The Dosatron dispenser can operate empty without damage, it is self priming up to 4 m and is not very sensitive to degassing products (risk of depriming), can cope with viscous products, offers wide dosing ranges (displayed as a % or a ratio), uses optional materials resistant to concentrated acids or alkaline products and enables easy and fast maintenance at any time.

Technical Points:
AF seals are recommended for alkaline disinfecting detergents, VF seals are recommended for acids and the PVDF pump body option is recommended for very aggressive and highly concentrated products (peracetic acid or peroxides, highly concentrated chlorine derivatives, etc.).

Drinking Water Production

Dosatron water powered dosing pumps (water is the only driving force) are used to disinfect water by automatically dosing chlorine derivatives (NaClO, NaDCC, etc.) or peroxides. The proportionality of Dosatron pumps guarantees the correct dose independently of pressure and flow variations in water networks.

Dosatron pumps are self-priming at up to 4 m and are not very sensitive to degassing products, guaranteeing uniform in line dilution, and enabling a direct readout and easy adjustment of the required dosing rate. For hard water, it is recommended that a light descaling should be done from time to time by injecting pre diluted hydrochloric acid at 10%.

Technical points:
AF seals are recommended for alkaline products (NaClO, etc.), VF seals for acids (Peracetic acid, etc.). The PVDF pump body option is also recommended. Example installation: a Dosatron with low dosing rate (e.g. adjusted to 0.1%), a filter and a pressure reducer upstream and a 100litre pre dilution tank. For example, prepare a 1000 ppm (0.1%) mother solution of chlorine in the 100litre tank, which after dispensing at 0.1% will give a concentration of 1 ppm of free chlorine at the outlet from Dosatron. With a Dosatron adjusted to 0.1% and a 100litre mother solution tank, you will be able to treat 100 m³ water.

Drinking Water Acidification

The use of organic acids in drinking water is a practice that is becoming increasingly frequent since these acids have attractive zootechnical and sanitary properties (beneficial effects on intestinal flora, reduction of the pH, etc.). The proportionality of Dosatron pumps guarantees the correct dose independently of pressure and flow variations in water networks.

Dosatron pumps are self-priming at up to 4 m and are not very sensitive to degassing products, guaranteeing uniform in line dilution, and enabling a direct readout and easy adjustment of the required dosing rate and can operate empty (with no product) without any risk of deterioration. Dosatron has developed material options such as PVDF pump bodies associated with special seals and alloys enabling daily use of highly concentrated acids, in order to satisfy changes in the organic acids market.

Technical Points :
“Special acids” series : Pumps with PVDF pump bodies and special seals for highly concentrated formic and propionic acids. The usefulness of « special acids » models will be determined with the help of our technical services. The “Hastelloy” special alloy option may be necessary for mineral acids.
