Pig Farming Applications
The water treatment issues confronting the Agriculture market today include an ever-increasing demand for irrigation water, compromised water quality, declining availability, and expanded goverment regulations. Water sources traditionally used for agricultural applications include groundwater, surface water, properly treated municipal and industrial wastewaters, as well as liquid manures stored in lagoons onsite at large dairy and swine operations. Dairy and CAFO manure storage, treatment, and handling regulation compliance are major issues confronting these segments of the agricultural producer market.

Cost-effective long term continuous measurement of CO2. Commercial greenhouse control systems measure and control temperature and CO2 concentration for optimum growth. Edinburgh Sensors’ low range CO2 Guardian NG is designed for long term continuous measurement of CO2 and is a cost effective solution for CO2 measurement in commercial greenhouse control systems. The Gascard NG CO2 is also widely used to detect CO2 in Pig and Poultry processing applications where high concentrations of CO2 are used.

The animal feed industry has its roots in the way traditional millers grinded the grains centuries ago, using (wooden) windmills. Nowadays feed is produced for chickens and other poultry, as well as for cattle, pigs and horses. There is a wide variety of feed and grains produced, with different raw materials (nutrients) applied in several compositions.
In this modern era electric driven pellet mills are applied and grains are cooled mainly in counterflow coolers. To remove dust from the used cooling air usually a baghouse filter is being used which can meet the current severe dust emission standards. After this the air eventually will be blown outside. Especially the cooling air of poultry feed and pig feed production should be deodorized to prevent complaints.
A factory usually has multiple pellet lines in service with about 15,000 to 25,000 m3/h of cooling air per line. Aerox has developed specific solutions for this industry.
On the one hand a compact Aerox®-Injector can be installed per pellet line. On the other hand, airflows of different production lines can be joined together and can be treated with one compact Aerox®-Injector. In practice, this can be added up to 4 lines with a total airflow of up to 90,000 m3/h.
Since the Aerox®-Injector can run on different capacities unnecessary power consumption is prevented when not all pellet lines are in service. This benefits the environment and reduces operational costs.

AQUA Industrial Watertreatment is very experienced in the treatment of wastewater produced in the red meat industry. Many cattle, sheep and pig slaughterhouses throughout the world rely on AQUA Industrial Watertreatment technology. The waste water produced during the production of red meat is highly polluted with proteins, fats, carbohydrates, blood and meat particles. The processes used largely determine the degree of pollution, such as the slaughter of the cattle, the disposal, or further processing of the tripe with content. The hair removal process at the slaughter of pigs, for instance, is an important parameter. AQUA Industrial Watertreatment can advise you on treatment systems specifically tailored to your situation.
