SANPHAR: Impact of water on cleaning, disinfection discussed at SBSA
Addressing the impact of water on cleaning and disinfection processes is an attempt to address the problems faced today, Luiz Felipe Caron, veterinarian and professor of veterinary microbiology at the Federal University of Paraná, told professionals at a session held by SANPHAR (Campinas/SP), during the South Brazilian Poultry Symposium.
Analysing flaws within relevant processes is required, when water (although essential in cleaning and disinfection) becomes an unwanted source of excessive moisture.
Other industry professionals also commented on mistakes made in the daily practice of these processes.
"The first is that, sometimes, we dilute the disinfectant significantly; and the second is about the environment: The chicken bed receives much organic matter when water raises humidity and (as a result) the disinfectant loses its effectiveness," Caron added.
"Overall, the idea is to see water as something fundamental, but innovations and new alternatives need to be seen as viable, valid processes in the current reality. "
It is in this section of the market that Stalosan F positions itself as a new tool for rural producers.
As pointed out by SANPAHR's, technical manager of Latin America, Ana Caselles (pictured, right) the solution is a sanitising powder that can be used in the presence or absence of animals. It also has as a special characteristic in its absorption of water when mixed with ammonia.
"This solution will help by lowering moisture which is a major challenge for producers trying to mitigate the multiplication of pathogens. In addition, due to the reduction of pH, the environment will be even less favorable for the development of these pathogens," Caselles said.
At another event held on the second day of the symposium, SANPHAR addressed more than 200 professionals on hygiene and available alternatives in the market.
"The importance of bringing our product launch to SBSA is because it is one of the most important events in the country, with a big capacity to reach the general public," Caselles elaborated.
She highlighted Stalosan F as "an effective tool for the hygiene and improvement of the poultry environment", noting its "characteristics (which) make it a very innovative and important tool within the integrated actions of controlling microorganisms."
