Hygiene in drinking water for animals – Clean water – healthy animals
Biofilms are a serious problem in the drinking water pipes. They are a symbiotic community of different bacteria that support, help and protect each other. In addition, they often show resistance to conventional disinfection methods.
Consequences of poor drinking water hygiene
- increased mortality and morbidity
- increased cleaning and hygiene requirements, e.g. in water reservoirs
- reduction of feed conversion
- the current chemical, mechanical or physical systems for combating biofilm have been shown not to be fully effective
“Feeding and watering equipment must be designed, constructed and placed in such a way that contamination of feed and water is minimized. Watering systems shall be cleaned and maintained regularly, where possible.”REGULATION (EC) No 183/2005 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 12 january 2005 laying down requirements for feed hygiene, Annex III
Maintenance of hygiene in animal husbandry
Criteria for the suitability of drinking water are palatability, compatibility and usability (inorganic and organic ingredients and contaminants).
The suitability of drinking water fed into the system should be checked regularly, especially with regard to germ content and chemical quality. The drinking water should also still be of suitable quality at the time of the actual uptake by the animals. This may have to be ensured by appropriate construction, installation, regular cleaning and maintenance of the drinking facilities, according to the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture.
Biofilm control is still the key element in maintaining hygiene in animal husbandry. The addition of NADES 2.0 to the drinking water reliably eliminates bacteria and thus prevents cross-contamination. This in turn leads to better animal health. If the drinking water is treated, only approved processes or products should be used (substances approved for drinking water or substances approved as feed additives or biocides). The respective conditions and restrictions of use must be observed.
The killing of germs in the drinking water pipes takes place in seconds and also leads to reduction of the biofilm. From this point on the quality of the drinking water complies with the Drinking Water Ordinance.
The very good microbiological effectiveness, the reduction of the biofilm and the fact that NADES 2.0 is neither a hazardous substance nor a dangerous good are just some of the advantages. In addition, in-situ production, i.e. on-site production, avoids the transport, storage and disposal of canisters. Therefore we offer employee safety combined with microbiological safety plus sustainability.
Stable hygiene – Surface disinfection
The optimization of cleaning and disinfection processes with NADES 2.0 results in savings of staff, water and energy. The use of NADES 2.0 also means that aggressive chemicals for disinfection are no longer needed.
The distribution of the NADES 2.0 aerosol achieves an elimination of spores and bacteria in the air and basically creates a cleaner environment for the animals, e.g. in the incubation process. The nebulization of NADES 2.0 also reduces the smell of ammonia in the stables.
- safe disinfection effect (drinking water, stable hygiene)
- use also during operation
- no development of resistance
- permanent reduction of biofilm
- avoidance of cross-contamination
- easy handling
- not a hazardous substance
