The agriculture industry is a water intensive industry that needs a constant contaminant free water supply to ensure high harvest yields and healthy farm livestock. Agriculture in the U.S. is dominated by large, specialized crop and animal farms. These industrial farms focus on short-term productivity, often at the cost of creating environmental and public health problems. This focus on short term productivity, requires agriculture water treatment solutions and specific soil additives that are sustainable and...
`A technique of growing plants in nutrient solution”. Hydroponics literally means water-working or water-activation. It is a cultivation technique for growing plants in highly oxygenated, nutrient enriched water, rather than soil. The nutrient solution and its management are the cornerstone for a successful hydroponics system. The function of a hydroponics nutrient solution is to supply the plant roots with water, oxygen and essential mineral elements in soluble form. In soil, biological decomposition breaks down...
The water supply and irrigation industry provides drinking water treatment to residential, commercial, municipal and industrial sectors of the economy. This industry requires products and solutions for soil vapor extraction/groundwater remediation; chemical, biological and mechanical odor control; and fluid handling and filtration.
We engineer and supply innovative technological solutions to improve fruit and vegetable cultivations and animal breeding. Our commitment is to a healthier, safer condition of all the actors involved in the agri-food chain (farmers, plants, animals, consumers) increasing the quantity and quality of food available, while at the same time reducing pesticide contaminations on products and in the environment.
The Aquaculture industry is one of the fastest growing segments in the agricultural industry accounting for over 1.13 billion dollars in the USA alone. However, this industry is suffering with several water quality challenges requiring sustainable aquaculture water treatment solutions to enhance fish health, and population yield while meeting environmental discharge regulations. The challenges facing aquaculture companies include emerging growth rates of specific bacteria and viruses, water usage, and environmental...
applications that include:
Agricultural and landscape irrigation
Industrial water processing
Industrial wastewater treatment
Municipal water treatment (drinking and waste treatment)
Prefiltration to protect costly media and reverse-osmosis systems
In broiler and layer farms, drinking water is often acidified to obtain a lower pH in order to stimulate the feed intake of the birds. However, doing so counteracts the efficacy of chlorine, since this most commonly used disinfectant requires a higher rather than a lower pH of the drinking water. Consequently, more chlorine is needed to compensate the diminishing effect caused by the organic acid, which in turn results in uncontrolled (over)dosing. With chlorine dioxide, nothing of this kind occurs since chlorine...
Horticultural and greenhouse operations are facing increasing challenges in dealing with sanitation issues related to water treatment. Over the course of growing a crop, pathogenic microorganisms accumulate and algae flourish on moist surfaces posing a constant threat to plants and produce. The main challenges lie the areas of irrigation water, elimination of biofilm and algae control. Existing biocidal products, while effective in killing algae, are not effective in removing biofilm from the water lines. The...
Three reasons why ozone in aquaculture improves water quality and increase aquaculture productivity. As recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) operate by reusing the fish tank water it is essential to control the water quality. Many studies show that treating RAS systems with ozone increases productivity as fish health and survival is increased.
RK BioElements have over the years gained a very strong position in aquaculture, where experience shows that RK BioElements help to create optimum growth conditions with a healthier population, higher production and value added as a result.Danish know-how is world leading in aquaculture with recirculation, including biological water purification. Existing EU rules in the field are among others based on the results from the Danish model fish farms, most of which use RK BioElements in their recirculation systems....
Chlorine dioxide has a number of advantages over other biocides commonly used in the fish and fish processing industry. Chlorine dioxide in solution can be added to water/ice that is used in processing and packing any fish. The slow release of chlorine dioxide gas from the water onto the surface of fish as the ice melts helps to prevent spoilage and odors during transport. It maintains the microbial quality of water even in presence of high organic load, thereby impacting upon quality maintenance and substantial...
Delta-T Devices supplies high quality, research grade equipment to help growers monitor and control irrigation using proven technology:
improve water use efficiency

Water treatment in life support systems either in aquaculture or aquariums is fundamental for incoming water and recirculating water process. Our range of filters are designed in order to get the best water quality, controlling parameters such as: Suspended particles, toxic substances present in water, dissolved oxygen, pathogens and other microorganisms.
This industry is suffering with several water quality challenges requiring sustainable aquaculture water treatment solutions to enhance fish health, and population yield while meeting environmental discharge regulations.
Our UV water disinfection technology is used in fish farms, mussel farms, aquariums and hatcheries. The benefits of UV disinfection has led to the production of healthier and larger fish, improved water quality, possible increases in stock density and vastly reduces the risk of disease. UV light is a chemical free treatment that cannot be overdosed, ensuring the physical characteristics of the water, such as PH levels and temperature, remain unchanged whilst avoiding the introduction of harmful toxins, such as...
HYDROFLO is a powerful software tool that assists piping system designers in the modeling and analysis of pumped and gravity flow piping systems. These systems are commonly found in industrial process, water supply, wastewater treatment, fire protection, chemical process, mine de-watering, irrigation and HVAC applications among others. Used with PumpBase a complete fluid transport system with an optimal pump selection can be designed.
