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 dioxide functions perfectly between pH 4 and 10. With chlorine dioxide, it is much easier to influence and improve poultry growing conditions.

AQUA Industrial Watertreatment is an experienced supplier of wastewater treatment systems for the poultry industry. Many AQUA systems have been installed worldwide at satisfied customers. The waste water produced during the processing of poultry is highly polluted with proteins, fats, carbohydrates, blood, feathers and meat particles. Extensive knowledge of the poultry slaughtering process is essential in the design of an adequate water treatment installation. The method used for the internal transportation of feathers or soft offal determines the pollution fraction in the water. AQUA can advise you on treatment systems specifically tailored to your situation.
