  • Monitoring Equipment for Fish Farms

    OxyGuard was founded as the first company in the world dedicated to providing metering, monitoring and control equipment to fish farms. The oxygen probes and multi-channel systems were revolutionary, and helped fish farming grow into the Aquaculture Industry that it is today. 

    Whether you need a hand-held DO meter or a system that can control your entire fish farm, OxyGuard equipment will help you run a profitable business. The return on investment time for OxyGuard equipment is short, even if you already monitor water quality the improved accuracy and stability of OxyGuard DO probes and control systems will give you considerable benefits.

    OxyGuard gained a reputation for excellence that led to a demand for other products and from other markets, but the company`s main focus is still on aquaculture. Improvements and the introduction of new technology have taken place, but the company philosophy is still to provide the fish farmer with precisely the equipment that is needed.

    Previously a simple oxygen measurement was enough - this is not the case today. The Aquaculture industry has grown; the demands to fish farming methods and the equipment used have grown with it. OxyGuard have designed the Commander system to meet these demands - and have made sure that Commander has the scope and flexibility to meet future demands.

  • Pollen Control

    Many plants will produce abundant quantities of very lightweight pollen grains. Transfer of grains or pollination is generally mediated by the wind, which is a requirement for any healthy indoor garden. When it lands on a compatible pistil or female cone, it germinates, producing a seed. This is an undesirable process when farming certain crops. Pollination control is one of the major concerns of gardeners as it can affect the final outcome of different types of crops.Pollination occurs when pollen from the male plant reaches the female stigmas and finds its way to the egg cell of the female plant that is inside the pistil. After the process of pollination, the seed is produced. To ensure pollen is effectively controlled, AgriAir equipment will destroy airborne contaminants finer than even the smallest grains. AgriAir machines are capable of destroying up to 99.99% of airborne pollen through our process of photo hydro ionization.

  • Ozone generators for pest control application

    Pesticides were commonly used for the pest control in farms since they have high and rapid insecticidal effects and enable us to increase yields of crops. However, the pesticides cause some problems: soil and groundwater pollution and residual chemicals in crops harmful to consumers. Recently, wider implementation of ozone sterilization in agriculture seems to be one of the promising techniques to secure the safety of foods.

    Measurement of oil & moisture in fish feed for agriculture sector

    The measurement of oil and moisture in fish feed is essential within fish farming, an important and growing industry providing high quality food for a growing global population. Fish feed is a key part of the ecology and economics of the industry making the control of the nutritional content and perceived quality of the product essential. Our Benchtop NMR Analyser - MQC system provides a fast, simple and accurate method of measuring the key parameters of oil and moisture in fish feed without the need for solvent extraction and oven drying which are slow, labour intensive and require skilled operators. In addition, the instrument is directly and linearly related to hydrogen content (of the oil/moisture) which means that chemometric analysis in comination with a very large set of calibration standards are not required.

    Measurement of oil and fat content in animal feed without drying for agriculture sector

    Animal feed is a key component in modern agricultural production ensuring that livestock receives the correct nutritional input for optimum animal health and farm productivity. The amount of fat in animal feed is one of the key nutritional and quality control parameters in the manufacture of animal feed. Our Benchtop NMR Analyser - MQC system provides a fast, simple and accurate method of measuring fat in animal feed without the need for solvent extraction which is slow, labour intensive and requires skilled operators. In addition, the instrument signal is directly and linearly related to hydrogen content (of the fat) which means that chemometrics in combination with a very large set of calibration standards are not required.

    Solutions for the agriculture, food & beverage industry

    Our products have a number of applications in the agriculture and food industries and help with safety, analysis and tracking. Quality control for consistency of food products from field to fork is of prime concern to manufacturers and consumers alike. Making products that look, smell and taste good ensures consumers come back for more. So, with an ever-growing population demanding more food products than ever before, simple instrumental test methods are required to provide quick and reproducible data from the field to the factory via the shopping cart to the consumer. For example, the measurement of oil and fats are invaluable in the control of many foods, particularly in snack food products such as potato chips. In a similar way, the quality of the simple bar of chocolate may be judged its solid fat content using a rapid measurement which will determine a perfect product while on the farm, oil in seeds is vital to productivity and yield, ultimately dictating the price the farmer is paid for his products.
