"Egg Hatcheries Disinfection"
"Disinfectant for Poultry Farming"
Soft Protector Ltd. has combined the power of two novelties in order to aid poultry farmers across the world: Teflex (Basic) and Teflex+ (Disinfectant) which both serve to create clean and healthy environments at the different stages of poultry farming.
Teflex is a very efficient new water-soluble polymeric disinfectant that works at low concentrations against bacteria, viruses and fungi. It is odorless and colorless; its pH is close to neutral and it exemplifies the ability to provide a long-term antimicrobial protection. These factors distinguish Teflex from any other disinfectants available on the market. Also, in contrast to many other products, Teflex is environmentally friendly and does not contain any hazardous substances making it completely safe for humans and animals alike. Usage of Teflex for the purpose of disinfecting water supplies helps to resolve the commonly occurring problem of corrosion in the drinking fixtures.
Commercially available disinfectants today are corrosive and aid in the oxidation process of the metals leading to rust formation. Teflex+ (Disinfectant) represents a completely new type of natural, ester based detergents. Teflex+ (Disinfectant) is both user and environmentally friendly and readily biodegraded at +3 - 5 °C.
Modern technologies require the treatment of hatching eggs with harmful chemicals; such as, formalin and potassium permanganate. Direct spraying or fogging of trays with eggs with 1% Teflex provides two advantages when compared with currently used sanitation technologies:
- It allows avoiding the usage of hazardous chemicals, i.e. formalin and potassium permanganate also.
- It presents long lasting antimicrobial protection and re-contamination is virtually impossible for the whole period of incubation (2-3 weeks). This is due to Teflex thin polymer layer that coats the surface that it is being applied to (incubators and other equipment, walls, floors).
It is greatly encouraged that farmers wash machinery and equipment involved in the incubations and hatching process after each use. Teflex+ (Disinfectant) is an excellent way of washing the above mentioned surfaces; it has a foaming action which indicates the product is actively removing any harmful micro-organisms. After using Teflex+ (Disinfectant) to remove contamination, spray or fog the dried surfaces with Teflex (Basic) thus preventing bio-growth and infection for 30 days before the need for re-application. The same procedure should be followed when sanitizing the hatchery rooms. After washing with Teflex+ (Disinfectant) ensure all surfaces are dry after cleaning; then fog with a Teflex (Basic) solution for 30 minutes.
"Layers Rooms Disinfection"
Egg laying chickens are kept either in cages or on the floor. If kept in cages, wash cages with Teflex+ (Disinfectant) every 16-18 weeks (3 times per year). After proper cleaning with Teflex+ (Disinfectant) allow area to dry and fog 10 liters of 1% solution of Teflex (Basic) per 1000 m3. Furthermore, if the chickens are kept on the floor; ensure that dry organic material is removed from the floor then wash the floor with Teflex+. Afterwards, fog 8 liters of Teflex (Basic) per 1000 m3.
