Intensive livestock farming

 Cows and pigs consume an enormous amount of water, making high water quality crucial. To further prevent diseases and contamination, the surfaces must also be free of bacteria and diseases. VGE Pro UV-C guarantees the quality of a livestock farm, both via water, air and surface.

UV-C for the welfare of a livestock farm

The welfare of animals in a livestock farm is strongly related to the quality of the drinking water. Contaminated (drinking) water contains many germs and other micro-organisms that are not conducive to the health of the livestock. Disinfection with UV ensures that the drinking water is always of high quality. The radiation inactivates the micro-organisms without leaving any residue, resulting in clean and safe drinking water. A completely safe and sustainable way of water disinfection.


Safe and healthy drinking water

Our UV systems ensure that the water is safe to consume for livestock. The radiation is so strong that it is able to disinfect surface water until it is drinkable. For example, it can also reduce biofilm pollution, which is important because bacteria such as legionella like to settle in it. UV-C inactivates biofilm-producing bacteria, without leaving residue.

Treat a break tank with UV-C

The water in a break tank can also be disinfected with UV. By placing the system in a bypass, you ensure that the water that recirculates is 100% clean. You often see that break tanks form a warm environment in which contamination by biofilm occurs quickly. By placing a VGE Pro UV system you deactivate the micro-organisms and thus prevent the production of (new) biofilm.


Not just water

Not only water, but also surfaces and air can be disinfected with UV. For example, stables full of bacteria that must be disinfected without chemicals. UV-C is a safe and sustainable way of doing this. Pathogenic micro-organisms that spread through the air can be inactivated by a VGE pro ceiling UV unit that circulates air. In addition, a liquid feed tank can be disinfected, as it easily creates organic pollution.

Which UV solutions apply?

Legionella prevention

The legionella bacteria is a major problem for human safety. The pathogenic bacterium spreads through water mist and can thus infect the respiratory tract.
