Oxi-Tech launches Pulse Oxidation Dairy (POD) for Robotic Systems
A new retro-fit clean-tech system for existing automated milking systems will be launched at Dairy-Tech by the UK based innovation company, Oxi-Tech.
Called Pulse Oxidation Dairy (POD) for Robotic Systems, the technology can be integrated into existing robotic systems and features next generation software with secure cloud data and remote phone App monitoring which optimizes Oxi-Tech’s unique chemical-free disinfection system.
“We have harnessed the most effective industrial biocide on the planet using just water and low voltage electricity in a process called Pulse Oxidation,” explains Oxi-Tech’s Paul Morris. “Compared with an automated milking system’s existing cleaning system requiring energy to heat the cleaning water, this unique technology uses approximately 50 times less energy, equating to running just one laptop and four low energy light bulbs. We consider typical return on POD investment to be three years based on two milking robots.”
“Pulse Oxidation energises cold water to create a clean but powerful disinfectant that includes a range of activated oxygen molecules which are globally recognised as powerful microbial biocides, killing bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa, including chlorine resistant Cryptosporidium, providing a more effective disinfection treatment than hypochlorite or peracetic acid.
“Furthermore, it is both operator and environmentally safe. Once the activated oxygen has undertaken disinfection, any remaining molecules simply revert to oxygen and water, consequently there are no side effects to the milk or water. There are no residual chemicals left behind to leach into the soil or groundwater.”
POD for Robotic Systems is estimated to reduce a 250-cow herd’s carbon footprint by over 5t per year. The figure includes the carbon associated in producing and transporting cleaning chemicals in blue plastic barrels and their disposal.
