  • 2. Aqua-4D® Physical Water Treatment- Livestock - Permanent elimination of biofilm in water pipes without chemicals Improved dissolution of additives and medicines Elimination and prevention of scaling, iron and manganese deposits An eco-friendly solution to increase the profitability of the integrator and the farmer 2
  • 3. Water propertiesWater, at the base of the life, is the most current of the liquids but remains diverting andmysterious from its anomalies.Electrical dipole Hydrogen bridge Water, due to its properties, is very sensitive to electromagnetic fields 3
  • 4. Aqua-4D® principleBecause of its dipole properties,water behaves like a magnet andcan be influenced (electro-) magnetically. Planet Horizons Technologies patented key know-how is the frequency and intensity combinations which can resolve specific problems. 4
  • 5. What are biofilms ? Complex matrix of bacteria, fungi, and algae bound together in a sticky gel of polysaccharide and other organic contaminants attached to a surface Generally form on any wet surface and are consequently found in many types of environments, especially in livestock drinking water systems biofilm harbor harmful microorganisms 5
  • 6. Why biofilms are found ? Organics particles coming from tape or Where are biofilms found ? wells water and nipples forms the biofilm. Enclosed watering systems operate on low Especially in animal production drinking water pressure, producing no turbulence that can systems breakup biofilms. High water temperature. Nutrients supplied by glucose used with medicines 6
  • 7. Consequences of biofilms presence? Poor feed conversion Lowered egg production, Increased mortality Negative impact on medication and vaccines delivered through the water lines Clogging of nipple drinkers Large variation in production This will affect the profitability of the integrator and the farmer 7
  • 8. Classical chemical approach to fight biofilmsTraditional disinfectants Chlorine Chlorine Dioxide Hydrogen peroxide-basedTraditional disinfectants do not effectivelypenetrate the biofilm matrix Most disinfectants are active against planktonic (unattached) microorganisms but are not effective against microorganisms in biofilm 8
  • 9. Elimination and prevention of biofilm with Aqua-4D® Elimination Prevention 1 2 First layers of water molecules Surface Surface1. The existing biofilm is detached. The structure of the water at the interface of the biofilm is modified.2. The biofilm will not attach any more thanks to the modification of the interactions forces at the interface. 9
  • 10. Mineral scalingWhat is scaling ? What are the consequences ? Hard water contains a large proportion of  Clogged plumbing and regulators minerals such as calcium and magnesium,  Pressure loss and sometimes iron and manganese.  Nipple drinkers sticking or leaking Over time, water containing these minerals  Scale has a rough surface that contains will attach to plumbing and form scale. pitting, cracks, and crevices which can harbor microorganismsOver time, this is a substantial cost when one considers the time and money of replacement of the water system. 10
  • 11. Classical chemical approach to remove scale The pH of the water must be reduced by adding an acid to dissolve the mineral scale Cleaning process of pipes with acids between flocks 11
  • 12. Aqua-4D® physical water treatmentThe ecological watersoftener Minerals are kept dissolved or suspended in water No more deposit inside the piping system Chemical-free Maintenance-free 12
  • 13. Benefits in the use of medicinesMedicine dissolution test Dissolution of the medicine (Aviapen 0.5 g/l) with tap water not treated Comparison with the dissolution of medicine with Aqua-4D® treated tap water Diagnostic with a microscope Analysis of the shape and the distribution of the minerals of dried drop of water samples 13
