湿垃圾通常来自泄漏的饮水器,湿垃圾不仅会严重影响鸡群健康,还会恶化鸡舍室内垃圾和气候条件。滴杯有助于减少湿垃圾问题,但不能停止饮水乳头泄漏。为此,我们需要采取更强硬的措施。

Wet litter, often caused by leaking drinkers, may result in serious flock health issues and worsen the litter and climate conditions in a poultry house. Drip cups help to reduce the wet litter problem but do not stop nipples from leaking. More drastic measures are needed.

坚持使用良好的高品质饮水器可减少泄漏的发生率水是所有生物最珍贵的营养品。因此,我们必须提供足够的高质量的水资源,不轻易浪费有限的可用成分。更重要的是,泄漏的饮水乳头会导致严重的湿垃圾问题,降低禽舍室内气候条件,从而影响鸡群的健康和表现,由此产生的损失可能是巨大的,随着时间的递增,损失的价值相当于重新安装一个新的高品质浇水系统。 Impex公司总监Richard Wentzel先生曾遇到过许多这样的问题。他成功地向众多生产商提出建议如何处理这个问题。他将泄漏问题归类为三大部分:水质,水压,设计和材料都不好的饮水器。


  • 提高水质看起来似乎是一件很简单的事情,但“普通”的水通常可能含有阻碍水流的因素,所以需要安装一个过滤器系统,并定期进行保养。如果因为不良水源而引发其他问题,就应考虑使用另一个水源或水井。
    • 改变水压并不复杂,但它对乳头泄漏的影响往往被低估。
    •          最重要和经常被忽视的往往是饮水器的设计与取材。


作为饮水器乳头制造商,Richard从家禽生产商和设备经销商中听到了许多故事,这些故事大多围绕人们在经营中出现的问题,以及该如何最大限度减少泄漏的可能性。饮水乳头通常被认为是一个简单的饮水工具,但要被承认是一个好的乳头必须符合很多前提条件。因为它必须向禽类提供健康的饮用水,它必须能够提供适当的剂量,并且保证使用多年后没有出现溢出和/或泄漏问题。这需要我们去选择坚实耐用并且几乎没有磨损的材料,而且,它还必须耐化学和硬水。


几年前,Richard经历了来自低成本生产商的激烈竞争,但今天,大多数当时选择低价格的客户都回来了。他们的故事充满了戏剧性的经验,现在都明白了质量意味着什么。有些客户被Richard带到他的制造厂,在那,他们体会到生产优质饮水乳头的重要性。他向他们展示了生产高质乳头所需要的材料和顶级机器以及生产和流程管理。每个生产出来的乳头配件之间的误差不超出0.005毫米。为了改善水流,所有金属部件在移动到装配线之前,必须清除残留的钻井油。Richard工厂的装配线配置有精密仪器(机器人),以确保在将所有不同部件组装在一起时不会损坏部件。为确保乳头没有泄漏,对每个乳头进行三次试验以检查气密性。一旦成功地通过各种质量测试,乳头便自动地转入管道中。


一旦亲眼看到现代化的生产工厂,并意识到质量的重要性,许多(潜在的)客户毫不犹豫地选择了Impex公司生产的饮水乳头,在这些客户当中不乏来自中国的各种生产商。

 

Water is the most precious nutrient for all living creatures. We therefore have to take care of providing sufficient water of high quality and not spilling this limited available ingredient. More importantly, leaking nipples may cause serious wet litter problems, affecting the in-house climate conditions and consequently flock health and performance. The resulting losses can be dramatic and over time be as high as installing a new high quality watering system. Richard Wentzel, director of Impex, has seen many of these problems. He successfully advised many producers how to deal with the issue. He divides the leakage problems in three major shortcomings: water quality, water pressure and drinkers of poor design or material quality.

  • Improving water quality seems to be a simple issue, but ‘plain’ water often may contain elements that can obstruct the water flow. Installing and frequently maintaining a filter system is needed. If the source is causing to many problems one should consider using another water source or well.
  • Changing water pressure is the least complicated, but its effect on leaking nipples is often under estimated.
  • Most important and often neglected is appreciating design and material of a drinker.

Being a nipple maker Richard heard many stories from poultry producers and equipment dealers about what can go wrong and what has to be done to minimize the chance of leakage. A nipple is often regarded to be a simple item, but requires a load of preconditions to be considered as being a good nipple. Since it has to provide water to birds it has to offer it at the right dose and without spilling and or leaking over many years. This requires material that last long and shows little wear and tear. In addition it should also be resistant to chemicals and hard water.

Years ago Richard experienced tough competition from low cost producers, but today most of the clients who at that time chose for low price have come back. Their stories are filled with dramatic experiences and all do now understand what quality means. Some have been taken by Richard to his manufacturing plant to show what it means to make quality nipples. He showed them the material and the top-class machines as well as production and control. Every single nipple part is made and measured up to a 0.005mm precision. To improve water flow all metal parts are cleaned from remaining drilling oil before moving them to the assembling line. The assembling line in Richards’ plant consist of precision machines (robots) to assure that no parts will be damaged when bringing together all different parts. Since nipples should show no leakage every single nipple is put on trial three times to check on airtightness. Once successfully passing the various quality checks the nipples are mechanically drilled into the pipeline.

Once having seen the modern production plant and realising what quality includes, many (potential) clients had no doubts anymore to choose for Impex drinking nipples.  Among them are various producers from China.
