New Cleaning System Uses Electrochemical Activation

03 December 2014

US - Dairy farms have a new germicidal solution combining water, sodium chloride solution and electrochemical activation to be used around the farm.

The cleaning system, from GEA Farm Technologies, can be used for teat dipping, cleaning premises, treating water or as a backflush or footbath solution. 

NCharge hygeine products can be blended or diluted with additives for a wide range of purposes and has been rigorously tested, according to GEA sales manager, John Brookes.

“The NCharge hygiene products have been put through rigorous testing, including University, National Mastitis Council (NMC) protocol and on-farm testing, to ensure their efficacy and microorganism killing power.

"Dairy producers can have complete confidence in the efficacy of NCharge hygiene products."

“The flexibility to produce a wide variety of hygiene products through one on-farm system provides dairy producers with an opportunity to maximize their economic potential.

"The ability to produce teat dips, footbath solutions as well as other products at the farm level, provides substantial freight cost savings. Most raw materials used in the production of hygiene products are not getting any less expensive so GEA Farm Technologies is doing as much as possible to lower costs and reducing freight is one way we can do that.”

Further benefits are that the production system saves room, not needing storage silos and there is less dependency on iodine, claim GEA Farm Technologies.

Non-iodine based dip formulas cut links to a very price volatile product.  

Mr Brookes added: “The system allows for product to be mixed ahead of time, ensuring product is ready and available when needed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

“In addition, dairy producers can be confident in the system as it is installed and supported by GEA Farm Technologies dealers.”
