Next level drinking water hygiene
Contaminated drinking water directly impacts animal health, welfare and performance. Adding medicines, vaccines and nutritional supplements to the drinking water creates a biofilm resulting in organic pollution of drinking water. Biofilm is the breeding ground for pathogenic microorganisms. There are many pathogens that are transmitted via the drinking water system, such as E. coli, Salmonella, Avian Influenza Virus, African Swine Fever Virus. Once such a pathogen is present in the drinking water system, it can quickly infect the whole population, as the pathogens are directly consumed.
Removing the bioﬁlm already removes 99% of all microorganisms, and the remaining pathogens will not stand a chance against Intra Hydrocare, which is effectively till the last nipple due to its strong stabilized character. This way, you can prevent the drinking water system from acting as a transmission route for pathogens and from infecting your pigs/poultry.
"Dosed in the drinking water system, the slow release effect of Intra Hydrocare allows it to react in a controlled manner with encountered biofilm and pathogens. During this chemical reaction, Intra Hydrocare will dissolve into oxygen and water. Both of which are completely safe for humans, animals, equipment and the environment."
The purest water for healthy flock
Intra Hydrocare is registered in Europe for the following types of use:
PT02: Private area and public health area disinfectants and other biocidal products
PT03: Veterinary hygiene biocidal products
PT04: Food and feed area disinfectants
PT05: Drinking water disinfectants
Governments around the world are increasing their demands regarding the safety and applications of disinfectants. Products that do not have government approval are simply not allowed. At Intracare, we attach great importance to obtaining proper registrations.
Biocide registrations have been assessed in accordance with new European standards. Whereas previously, each country had an individual registration and assessment body, the EU has recently switched to a new and strict registration system that is harmonised throughout the European Union, led by ECHA, also known as BPR (European Biocidal Products Regulation).
Intra Hydrocare is the only biocidal product based on hydrogen peroxide with EU-BPR PT05 classification. Intra Hydrocare is therefore the sole product in the market that is certified to be used in drinking water whilst animals are present in the poultry house, with a dosage up to 250 ml per 1,000 litres of water.
Intra Hydrocare has its own EU-BPR registration for use in livestock industries. As such, Intra Hydrocare is unique since it is not based on a derivative industrial peroxide. Biocide use is subject to strict regulations. Using agents that do not comply with the legislation is strictly forbidden.
On the ECHA website, you can easily learn more on which biocidal products are registered and for which application they are approved.
*Type: Hydrocare in the trade name field.
Intra Hydrocare contains 590 g/l stabilised hydrogen peroxide to ensure the slow release effect and optimize the biocidal efficacy.
Intra Hydrocare is available in the following packaging units: 1 L bottle, 5 L can, 10 L can and 20 L can. With Intra Hydrocare you get value for money. Besides the unique Money Back Guarantee, Intra Hydrocare is a densely composed product. Intra Hydrocare delivers 11.9 kg per 10 L.
Please note that Intra Hydrocare is classified as UN 2014 (8).
Intra Hydrocare can be used for 2 purposes: cleaning and maintenance. What dosage should be used depends on several factors, such as the quality of the incoming water, and if the house is empty or animals are present.
Cleaning with Intra Hydrocare in an empty house
Fill the drinking system with a 1-3% solution (1-3 liter Intra Hydrocare per 100 liter of water). The product has a self-working effervescent action, so brushing is not required. After filling all the pipes, drinking nozzles, cups or towers must also be filled so the whole system is treated. Ensure there is always air-escape in the drinking system. Allow the solution to stand for at least 12 hours and then rinse the whole system, including the drinking nozzles, cups and towers with clean water.
Cleaning with Intra Hydrocare in an operational barn
If necessary, the system can be treated when the animals are present. Start with a dosage of 0.010% (= 100 ml Intra Hydrocare per 1000 liter of water) for 5 days. If needed increase the dosage by 50 ml every two days until the maximum dosage of 0.020 % is reached (= 200 ml Intra Hydrocare per 1000 liter of water). Depending on the amount and type of contamination, this method will take app. 10 days. In case the water / feed intake changes, the dosage must be lowered.
In case of severe biofilm / pathogenic bacteria pollution, a water analysis is recommended and first clean the system when the animals are not present.
Maintenance with Intra Hydrocare
Incoming water polluted: dose 0.0030 – 0.0050% (= 30 – 50 ml Intra Hydrocare per 1000 liter of water) every day.
Incoming water okay: dose 0.010 – 0.015% (=100-150 ml Intra Hydrocare per 1000 liter of water) 1 – 2 day(s) a week.
Cleaning and disinfection of drinking systems in empty barns: Use a 1-3% Intra Hydrocare concentration, and leave it for one night in the drinking water system. Ensure there is always air-escape in the drinking system.
In case of severe bioﬁlm / pathogenic bacteria pollution, a water analysis is recommended and ﬁrst clean the system when the animals are not present.
The water quality can be easily measured with the Intra Clean Quick Scan.
If you want to see if Intra Hydrocare is dosage is still effective at the end of the pipelline, measure the water with the Intracare peroxide strips. A heavily polluted system will show no active peroxide at the end of the pipeline, which means that the dosage should be increased.
After overnight cleaning of the drinking water lines, empty the waste water in a white bucket to see the pollution that comes out of the lines.
Does Intra Hydrocare effect the taste or smell of the water?
No, Intra Hydrocare has no effect on the taste, smell of pH of the water. Therefore, it does not affect the water intake.
Can Intra Hydrocare be used in operational systems?
Yes, Intra Hydrocare has PT05 registration in Europe. This means the product has been proven to be safe for animals to consume in the recommended dosage
What is the difference between chloride products and Intra Hydrocare?
Where chloride products are good disinfectants, they possess no cleaning properties. This means that it cannot remove the biofilm, which is the breeding ground for micro-organisms, and the bacteria can survive hidden in the pipeline.
What is the difference between normal hydrogen peroxide and Intra Hydrocare?
Normal hydrogen peroxide reacts very quickly. When encountering the first organic pollution in the first meters of the drinking water line, it will immediately react, which can be corrosive for the system. However, the end of the pipeline is the most contaminated and therefore most crucial part. When dissolved into oxygen and water, normal hydrogen peroxide will not reach the end of the pipeline. Intra Hydrocare is very stabilized hydrogen peroxide. Therefore, it contains a slow release function which allows the whole pipeline, till the last nipple, to be cleaned and disinfected.
Can Intra Hydrocare be used simultaneously with vaccines or medication?
No, it is not advised to combine Intra Hydrocare with vaccines or other medication.
Can Intra Hydrocare be used simultaneously with organic acids, such as Intra Aqua Acid Mineral?
What type of pollution with be removed with Intra Hydrocare?
Intra Hydrocare removes all organic pollution and manganese deposits.
If my system has not be cleaned for a long time, can I still use Intra Hydrocare when my animals are present?
In this situation we would always advise to first clean the system when animals are not present. As Intra Hydrocare is very effective, it will remove all pollution form the drinking lines. If the animals consume this, it can impact animal health and welfare.
What is the shelf life of Intra Hydrocare?
How long is the pre-solution stable?
Make sure you use a clean barrel and clean water to prepare the pre-solution. The shelf life of the pre-solution is….
Can I keep Intra Hydrocare in another packaging unit?
No, Intra Hydrocare should never be put in another packaging unit. All packaging units from Intracare have air release in the cap, this is very important.
