The Nutridose is the most sophisticated, safest and reliable water medication dispensing unit currently available in the market and has been designed to accurately deliver the correct dose of urea, phosphorus, trace minerals and vitamins into the reticulated drinking water systems of cattle and sheep. The Nutridose is able to self-monitor this process and adjust any incorrect dosages with the use of a flow sensor. The Nutridose is also compatible with satellite and radio monitoring and therefore can be operated and monitored remotely.
When feeding urea to cattle and sheep it is vital to have a safe dosing unit and the Nutridose system, along with specially developed formulations, provides users with this assurance. The Nutridose incorporates several built-in mechanisms to achieve maximum safety.
Conductivity Monitoring: A recent addition to the Nutridose system, the conductivity monitor measures the conductivity of the water downstream from the injection point. Pure urea in water is not conductive however the urea mix includes salts that do increase the conductivity of the water. When the conductivity reaches a level above what has been pre-set the monitor can provide a water meter lock out that blocks the pulse from the water meter. As well as this, the monitor can trigger an alarm which trips the system and shuts it down.
Maximum Pump On Time: Irrespective of any of the other settings, the maximum time that the pump can be switched on when the unit is dosing is capped to so that it cannot overdose.
Nutrient Meter: The actual dose is measured on every dose via the nutrient flow meter. The time that the pump is on is then adjusted to ensure that the correct dose is injected each time. If any erratic dosing occurs, the Nutrient Meter will shut the system down and report a check nutrient sensor alarm.
Double Water Meter Pulse: If a second water meter pulse is received from the water meter while the system is dosing, then the system will shut down.
A radical development in water medication for livestock is the PROMATIC- a new age in dispensers which is able to directly inject supplements into the water line without the need for a nutrient mixing tank or for product dilution with water. The PROAMTIC is able to dispense U-Pro liquid 60, U-Phos liquid 60 and U-Trace as well as bloat oil and electrolytes throughout reticulated watering systems. With the incorporation of a peristaltic pump, the PROMATIC provides its user not only the same accuracy and efficiency that can be found in hospital grade drips but the extra safety feature of locking the delivery line regardless of error.
The PROMATIC is the only water medicating unit available that connects to its own app via Bluetooth, from which the operator can adjust and customise all parameters relating to the dosing. As well as this, the operator can view up to date information on water flow and animal intake. Like the Nutridose, the PROMATIC is able to connect to a next g modem- it is therefore now possible for the user to monitor and control operations remotely. Solar or mains power units are available.
