The Bio-Sparge SMB 160 is a Farm Entrance
Security System designed to automatically spray vehicles entering or exiting
with a water and chemical disinfectant spray to help eradicate the challenges
that face farms and flocks from day to day visiting traffic.
Smart Movement Beam (SMB) technology

if you have a personnel walkway, so they don’t trigger the system off.).
Users can easily select vehicle spray
direction, Entry only, both Entry & Exit, or just Exit only spraying
System automatically mixes water and Chemical
to the pre-set strength depending on recommended rates from the chemical
Bio-Sparge uses either mains or farm bore hole water which is then
automatically mixed at a controlled percentage with a neutral PH chemical to
provide the disinfectant spray, Dilution / percentage rates are adjustable, but
once set, no further adjustment is needed. WRAC approved air gaps are
incorporated within the Bio-Sparge’s integral water tank (200 ltr) to prevent
any back flow of chemical / detergent into the water supply.
Bio-Sparge SMB incorporates internal heating to protect the Bio-Sparge’s
components in cold weather together with automatic visual status alarms. These
alarms provide protection to the Bio-Sparge in the event of a loss of water
supply, or when operating in cold conditions.
Bio-Sparge SMB is best installed on a concrete base with a camber to assist run
off and avoid puddles. When used with high volumes of traffic consideration
should be given to the drainage and storage of the run-off water. The
Bio-Sparge SMB should not be installed on soft ground, gravel, or tarmac and
will not be warranted.
