Aqua King specialises in the sanitation of water and has a patented treatment technology to deal with pathogenic micro-organisms. Its treatment systems have proven themselves over a wide variety of different applications in the agricultural and food industries.
Aqua King’s electronically controlled system ensures quality potable water for wine cellars (influent and effluent), animal production, agribusinesses, and food and beverage manufacturing, as well as any other industry that requires high-quality water with the ability to purify and/or sanitise.
The treatment technology includes an oxidation and ionisation process and is also capable of reducing the heavy metal content of the water. The chemicals used are environmentally-friendly and less sensitive to pH levels than chlorine-based products. The system can remove biofilm from pipelines and the residual effect of the treatment maintains a prolonged resistance against recontamination.
A safe and adequate supply of water is essential for efficient animal production. For example, chickens and laying hens drink double the amount of water per day than the amount they eat. Good drinking water is involved in every aspect of poultry’s metabolic process, and as such is needed to help the digestive process, the transport of nutrients in the body, the regulation of the body temperature and the elimination of waste. Unsuitable water can reduce performance, retard growth, curtail egg production, produce lower egg quality, cause illness or in severe cases cause death.
The basic system consists of an electrical control box, copper and silver anodes. A circuit between the copper and silver anodes is set up, whereby copper and silver ions are produced, to be oxidised by upstream bromine ions to form silver, copper and bromine (AgCuBr2). This pre-mentioned ionised water creates a condition in the water, the so-called “redox potential”, which allows for chemical species to be reduced. The electronic control is a hands-free approach to ensure pre-determined quality water to an entire system.
The system comes with a life-long maintenance and upgrade programme, 24-hour remote monitoring control, automatic process handling and supervision, and a data logging system that compiles ORP levels and then forwards the information to a central server hosted by Aqua King. This data is available to specific users by means of a unique password and username.
Some advantages of Aqua King’s system is that it is environmentally-friendly due to quick bio-degradability; has a fast micro-organism kill reaction; has control over the redox potential; it is cost effective and has minimal inherent system corrosion; it is effective over a wide pH range; and provides excellent results on Polio, E-coli, Cholera, Bilharzias and other water-borne ailments.
