Ozone gas and ozonated water are widely used in egg hatcheries, potable water in poultry houses, disinfection of the interior of poultry houses during period changes, production areas, chiller units and process water disinfection.
Thanks to ozone application in poultry farms, ozonation of drinking and potable water, harmful bacteria (E.coli), which are transmitted from potable water to chickens are destroyed. Chickens grown in poultry houses will become less sick. Since production is made using fewer vaccines and medicines, healthier and higher quality products are offered to consumers. It is extremely important for disinfection to use the water consumed in poultry slaughterhouses by ozone.
Another usage area of ozone gas in the poultry industry is the disinfection of incubators, nest boxes, production farms. E.coli, Pseudomonas fluorescens, etc. Disposal of microorganisms that increase harmful disease and death rates with ozone gas is an important and most effective solution.
Ozone application in production farms, healthier feeding of animals, thus less sickness is provided. In parallel with this, giving much less medication and making fewer vaccines plays a big role in the convenience of the manufacturer, financial advantage and the provision of a healthier, quality product.
Since ozone gas is a natural disinfectant that does not leave residues, it does not pose the risk of chemical residues caused by chemicals such as formaldehyde, methanol, peracetic acid, chlorine.
Ozone also plays an important role in extending the shelf life of eggs and reducing microbiological distress. When the eggs lose moisture due to their breathable shell, they shrink and need about 90% moisture in their stored areas. As is known, 90% of humidity causes bacteria to grow easily and mould. With high humidity, mould and bacteria growth can be eliminated for 8 – 9 months at 0 degrees. Storing the product in this way causes the egg to remain healthy, fresh and quality; Thus, a great financial advantage is provided to the producer.
– Prevents bacteria growth by breaking the gases in the chicken farm environment and improving the air quality.
– Chicks and chickens eat healthier
– Reduces the rate of the sickness of animals by improving environmental factors
– It provides less use of vaccines and drugs for production.
– It does not leave any residue on the product, it is environmentally friendly.
– Microbial load on the product is significantly reduced and the shelf life of the product is extended.
Drinking water for poultry is an important dietary requirement. Under normal conditions, birds will consume, approximately, double the quantity as food on a weight basis.
Poor water quality can retard growth, curtail egg production, or produce lower egg quality.
Feed conversion has been positively correlated to the presence of sulfate and copper concentrations in the water and ozone effectively oxidize them and can be easily removed by filtration.
Over the years, genetic advancement for increased weight gain, feed intake and feed conversion has led to the current commercial broiler which attains heavier weights in less time with greater yields. It is estimated that birds consume approximately 1.7 pounds (771.11 grams) of water for every pound of feed. Therefore the amount of water a bird consumes is critical to how much feed they intake. See this data in the graph below
When water looks clear and tastes okay we believe it to be good – right? Well this isn’t necessarily true, actually water quality is impossible to judge adequately except with laboratory testing. Field experience has conclusively shown that un-observable differences in water quality, from farm to farm and even from one well to another within a complex, can result in significant differences in bird performance.
It is important for your delivery lines and related water infrastructure to function at peak performance. Often when water is contaminated with bacteria such as iron and manganese, a bio-film forms and those supply lines can slowly degrade and become a problem when peak demands are required. Providing a purified water before distribution lines is critical to any large poultry operation.
