LS-PWT

LSPWT Savings ChartLS-PWT contiene el ácido mineral de grado alimentico animal disponible más fuerte. Se requiere una frecuencia mucho más baja para acidificar el agua potable a niveles biológicamente eficaces de bajo pH. Esta tasa de adición inferior proporciona la reducción del pH que no tiene sabor amargo. Las aves y los animales no se mantendrán alejados del agua tratada con LS-PWT2, por lo que se mantiene el consumo de agua óptimo.



Química del Producto

Cuando LS-PWT2 es aplicado se descompone en sodio, hidrógeno y sulfato.

NaHSO–4 >  Na+  +  H+  +  SO–4

El hidrogeno reduce el pH. LS-PWT2 es seguro, es un ácido mineral seco que se descompone en productos encontrados de forma natural en el ambiente.

Química Ambiental

LS-PWT2cumple con las directrices de un ingrediente verde. Es:

  • Biodegradable
  • No tóxico
  • Inocuo al ozono

LS-PWT2 sigue los principios de la Química Verde descritos por la EPA y el Departamento de Control de Sustancias Tóxicas de California: •

  • El proceso de producción no genera residuos y no utiliza disolventes
  • El proceso se analiza en tiempo real para evitar la contaminación y maximiza la “eficiencia atómica” porque contiene todos los materiales de partida en los productos finales
  • Está diseñado para ser totalmente eficaz y tiene poca toxicidad
  • Se degrada después de su uso y su descomposición resulta en sustancias inocuas
  • Está diseñado para minimizar el potencial de accidentes, incluyendo explosiones, incendios y emisiones al medio ambiente.

Alcalinidad

La alcalinidad es la capacidad del agua de actuar como agente tampón. Mide la capacidad del agua para neutralizar los ácidos manteniendo así un pH estable. La alcalinidad del agua se compone de bicarbonatos, carbonatos, hidróxidos que se combinan con los iones H + para neutralizarlos. El agua de alta alcalinidad requiere más ácido para reducir el pH.

How do I decide what rate to use?

Two factors determine how much LS-PWT2® is needed on a given farm: end-use of LS-PWT2® (crop acidification or chlorine management) and characteristics of the water source (pH and alkalinity). Refer to the rate chart for the appropriate amount in each situation.

PWT-usage-rates

How much LS-PWT2 is too much?

The pH of the drinking water should not go below a pH of 3.0.

Is alkalinity important when testing water?

Yes. Alkalinity is a measure of the carbonates in a water source that will bind to the LS-PWT2® or any water acidifier. Only after all of the carbonates in the water are bound by the LS-PWT2® will the pH begin to drop. The higher the alkalinity of a water source, the more LS-PWT2® or any other acid will be needed to reach the target pH.

What is the difference between LS-PWT2 and citric acid or vinegar?

LS-PWT2® is a strong, mineral acid while citric acid and vinegar are weak organic acids. LS-PWT2® has a low addition rate and a pleasing taste to birds while organic acids such as citric acid taste bitter causing birds to reduce water consumption.

How long should I run LS-PWT2?

LS-PWT2® should be run for the first 7-10 days the birds are placed in the house, around feed changes, and prior to processing. More information about usage for different types of birds can be found here.

What is pH?

pH is the measure of the number of hydrogen ions in solution. The more hydrogen ions in a solution, the lower the pH will be.

Will birds drink water at a low pH of 3.5?

Yes, if it is acidified with a mineral acid such as LS-PWT2®. Because mineral acids easily donate hydrogen ions into a solution, they have a low addition rate and a pleasing taste to birds.

I have never run LS-PWT2 before. Is it ok to run it mid-flock?

If you have never used LS-PWT2® before, it is recommended to use it for the first time while the house is empty. Because LS-PWT2® cleans the water lines so thoroughly, dislodging lots of biofilm and residual material in the lines, a high pressure flush is needed to remove that debris from the water lines. Using LS-PWT2® with birds in the house for the first time will make it difficult to remove all of the debris dislodged by the cleaning process possibly causing clogged nipples and birds to ingest the dirty material.

How do I properly test water to determine addition rate of LS-PWT2?

A sample of the water can be taken either at the well or at the entrance to the house. A pool test kit or test strips can be used to determine the pH and alkalinity of the water source. Once that is known, use the chart below to determine addition rate.

PWT-usage-rates

Do I need to make fresh solution everyday?

No. Unlike antibiotics and other water additives, LS-PWT2® is very stable when mixed. A stock solution of LS-PWT2® will maintain its potency for at least 30 days.

Does LS-PWT2 help bird performance?

Yes. By acidifying the crop, LS-PWT2® helps the bird in digestion and the maintenance of healthy gut microflora.

How does crop acidification work?

Many have experienced success with water acidification programs that are properly designed to deliver the right pH at the right times.. But given that water acidification doesn’t seem to change the pH in the intestines, how does it work? The answer seems to lie in the difference between the original pattern of gut movement and digestion in birds and the altered pattern on modern commercial diets. There are several areas in a bird’s gut where movement is actually a two-way street. When a bird was eating whole grain and bugs, the meal would go from the proventriculus to the gizzard for grinding. Then the gizzard would send the meal backwards to the proventriculus for another acid bath. This might happen 5 or 6 times until the meal was ground finely enough to move on to the intestines. In a commercial mash or pelleted diet, this back and forth movement between the gizzard and the proventriculus is dramatically reduced so there is very little acid contact time of the meal in the proventriculus. With a diet that includes whole grains this back and forth movement is frequently repeated before the meal is allowed to enter the intestine increasing acid contact time many fold. The most plausible explanation for the efficacy of acidifying water below a pH of 4.0 in improving performance and in impacting Salmonella and necrotic enteritis is that by acidifying the ingesta in the crop, that low-pH contact time lost to impaired gizzard reflux is being compensated for.

Will LS-PWT2 clog my drinker lines?

No. It is the debris being dislodged from the dirty drinker system that could possible clog the lines if it isn’t flushed out promptly and thoroughly.

How long should I leave LS-PWT2 in the lines when I clean between flocks?

The first time you use LS-PWT2® in a house for cleaning, it should only be left in the lines about 8 hours due to the large amounts of debris that is removed during the cleaning process. This will facilitate the removal of this gelatinous material from the drinker system. After LS-PWT2® has been used to clean the drinker system, then it can be left in the lines as long as 24 hours prior to flushing.

How often should I clean my drinkers?

At the end of every flock and after running any type of water additive such as electrolytes or vitamins.

Should LS-PWT2 be run after I use electrolytes or vitamins?

Yes. This will remove any residual material from the water additives that can be a food source for bacteria.

Is LS-PWT2 approved for animal consumption?

Yes. LS-PWT2® is approved by the FDA as an animal feed additive.
