Drinking systems

Complete systems with practical details.

We construct and deliver our drinking systems custom-made and based on individual planning for your stable. They have been especially developed for sow management, piglet rearing and pig fattening.

We have continuously developed and optimized drinking systems and invested great care and passion in useful and detailed solutions. Today our drinking systems can be found in many operations where they ensure the supply of fresh water and additives.

Holders for circulation flow drinking systems integrated into a loop line system. The circulation line is ideal for dosing medications. The return flow pipe is designed to serve as a guard bracket in front of the nipples.
This is the solution for piglet pens: Up to 5 nipples at the flow system. Show in the picture: 3 nipples for a pen with 30 piglets. All automatic feeders with circulation line, also integrated in the ring. This way it is possible to dose medication into the drinking water.


Standard drinking system for liquid feed.

Our drinking systems with branch lines leading to pens and supply line in the central aisle are ideal for stables with liquid feed. Also they are perfectly suitable for operations without dosing of medication through the drinking water. With our dosing unit MBDos it is also possible to add acids for the optimization of gastrointestinal flora.

 

Circulation drinking system for dosing medication.

Our circulation drinking systems consist of loop lines inside the pens and a separate loop line in the central aisle where it is intended to have an additional fresh water line. There is a chemical resistant ball tap in front of each pen to select between fresh water supply or medication solution feed-in. Due to the constant circulation of the drinking water even non-soluble medications remain in suspension and reach the animals safely.

All drinking systems are acid resistant. The supply lines are made of PVC. For parts within reach of the animals we use stainless steel exclusively. Depending on the requirements we install stainless steel holders with up to 7 nipples.

 

Drinking system holder with circulation and guard bracket.

The return flow pipe of the circulation drinking system holder serves also as a guard bracket. An ideal solution to prevent pigs from injury caused by nipple ends. The carcass can therefore be fully factored for billing. Moreover, the return flow pipe is easier to install compared with common holders due to only few mounting materials.

 

Drinking bowls comply with animal welfare criteria.

Drinking from open surfaces is one of the criteria of the initiative Tierwohl! In our stainless steel bowls the water accumulates on one side. Due to the optimized shape there is only limited open water surface. That increases hygiene inside the bowl. The pipe connection for a 1/2" water line is outside the bowl.

 

Mother-child bowl for sow management.

The perfect solution for the farrowing pen is our mother-child drinking bowl. It enables the sow and piglets to drink from open surface at the same time. The Aqua-Level keeps the water level up.

Different applications require individual solutions. We offer drinking bowls for any application from sow management to fattening pens. The drinking bowls fulfil the animal welfare criteria for "drinking from open surfaces"!
