GEA Farm Technologies Introduces an On-Farm System to Manufacture Hygiene Products

01:55AM Dec 05, 2014

GEA Farm Technologies is proud to bring dairy producers an on-farm system to improve operational efficiency and create high quantities of economical, safe and effective germicidal solutions. The new NCharge™ Hygiene Production System is a sophisticated, patented technology that combines automation and chemistry. This unique system combines soft water from a dairy and a sodium chloride solution together with electrochemical activation to create an extremely active germicidal solution called NCharge Concentrate. The NCharge Concentrate can then be diluted or blended with unique and exclusive NCharge additives to create a wide range of dairy hygiene products.

The NCharge technology provides dairy producers the ability to produce pre-dips, post-dips, footbath solution, premise cleaner, water treatment, backflush solution and clean in place (C.I.P.) products on-farm with the push of a button.

“The NCharge hygiene products have been put through rigorous testing, including University, National Mastitis Council (NMC) protocol and on-farm testing, to ensure their efficacy and microorganism killing power. Dairy producers can have complete confidence in the efficacy of NCharge hygiene products,” explains John Brooks, U.S. national sales manager for hygiene and supplies at GEA Farm Technologies. “The flexibility to produce a wide variety of hygiene products through one on-farm system provides dairy producers with an opportunity to maximize their economic potential. The ability to produce teat dips, footbath solutions as well as other products at the farm level, provides substantial freight cost savings. Most raw materials used in the production of hygiene products are not getting any less expensive so GEA Farm Technologies is doing as much as possible to lower costs and reducing freight is one way we can do that.”

Plus, with the NCharge Hygiene Production System, dairies can reclaim storage space previously used for bulky totes or vertical storage silos. And, the non-iodine based teat dip formulas mean that dairies are less dependent on the price volatility found in the iodine market. Also, NCharge is the only on-farm production system that can create post-dips – and with this addition to the product mix, NCharge provides an even quicker return on your investment.

“The system allows for product to be mixed ahead of time, ensuring product is ready and available when needed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” says Brooks. “In addition, dairy producers can be confident in the system as it is installed and supported by GEA Farm Technologies dealers.”

The NCharge Hygiene Production System is available in select markets. To find out if NCharge is a fit for your operation, contact GEA Farm Technologies at 1-877-WS-Dairy (1-877-973-2479).
