BIO – SPARGE SMB – SH (240 volt supply)
The Bio-Sparge SMB – SH 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, this is the most
basic model that Bodo Ltd manufacture and
does not come with integrated housing, heating, warning signals, etc
that the SMB 160/120 come with.
This system is designed to be situated in a
pre-existing shed/housing unit which is kept heated at an ambient temperature
to protect the system from freezing temperatures. It does come with a external
frost protection stat so if the outside temperature drops below freezing the
system will switch off for safety of outside water residue from freezing.
The Bio-Sparge SH is designed for low
traffic farms and can cover a farm entrance of a maximum of 3.6m (12ft) this
system cannot be lenghtened.
The 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 external water
tank (220 ltr) to prevent any back flow of chemical / detergent into the water
The Bio-Sparge SMB uses Smart Movement
Beams to trigger the Bio-Sparge’s management system which operates the pump and
valves for a pre-set time. The water and chemical / detergent solution is
pumped through the spray bars to disinfect the vehicle at a pre-set dosage
The 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.
Prices: Starting from £3700.00 (Standard 3.6m width cannot be altered). Additional Width: £180.00 per meter.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED FOR THE BIO-SPARGE SMB SH – SERVICES REQUIRED.
230v 50Hz, 13A, Single Phase
A qualified electrician should undertake
the electrical installation. All electrical components are CE Marked and the
Control Cabinet wired to EN60204-1.
Note: We recommend that an RCD is fitted to
the Electrical supply to the Bio-Sparge SMB. General use: 30mA – 20
millisecond, Equine, Racehorse installations: 30mA – 5 millisecond.
We recommend that a tap, or isolation valve
should be installed in the water supply to the Bio-Sparge Cabinet, to allow the
water supply to be turned off for maintenance of the Bio- Sparge SMB.
Clean Mains water, or a Borehole water
supply, minimum pressure 2 bar (29 PSI) maximum pressure 7 bar (100 PSI).
If the water supply is not clean then an
inline filter should be fitted to ensure that only good quality water is supplied
to the Bio-Sparge SMB.
Note: The Bio-Sparge SMB incorporates back
flow protection (WRAS classification ‘Type AF’ Air Gap with Circular
Overflow’). However some Water Authorities may consider that the fitment of a
reduced pressure zone valve, or other ‘verifiable backflow prevention device’
for protection against backflow in fluid category 4 or 5 is necessary. If in
doubt contact your local Water Authority or a qualified ACP (Institute of
Plumbing & Heating Engineers – Approved Contractor Person).
CHEMICAL / DETERGENT
It is recommended that a biodegradable PH
neutral Chemical / Disinfectant is used with the Bio-Sparge SMB.
Consult with your chemical supplier and
ensure that the chemicals used comply with all regulations and local bylaws.
