of the newest poultry customers in the U.S. for Lonza Water Treatment’s
sanitizing feeder systems sells a premium, natural brand of chicken that is
free of antibiotics and growth hormones or steroids.
chickens and other poultry clean from harvest to table is where the megatrend
needs for both clean water and safe, abundant food intersect -- and
where Lonza is an industry leader with our decades of expertise in water
treatment and microbial control. The
need is enormous, as Purdue University’s Food Animal Education Network
estimates that 8 billion chickens are consumed in the U.S. each year.
this new customer’s site in the Midwestern U.S., Lonza’s Industrial,
Commercial, Municipal and Surface Water (ICMS) Water Treatment business worked
with a poultry dealer to build and install a chlorination system to sanitize
the process equipment used in preparing the harvested chickens for market.
MC4-150P feeder system creates a sanitizing solution out of our dedicated
DryTec® FG sanitizing briquettes made in Lonza’s facility in Charleston,
Tennessee. The sanitizing solution is
applied by many spray nozzles onto the processing equipment, helping to protect
the chickens from potential pathogens.
chlorinator is the most elaborate feeder system we offer to the poultry
industry, complete with pH control and a reverse osmosis device used to filter
the feed water coming into the system. Many
chicken and turkey processing farms and plants throughout the Americas and
elsewhere around the world use Lonza Water Treatment equipment and products.
