BIO-SPARGE WHEEL WASHERS

Bio-security Wheel Washer

Introducing the BIO-SPARGE wheel spray disinfecting system for bio-security.

The cost-effective way forward in bio-security helping you protect your business from cross contamination and significantly reduce the risk of disease entering livestock enterprises.

The bio-sparge is a low cost efficient disinfectant vehicle spray system for use on farm, feed mills, livestock auctions, agricultural show entrances, zoos, veterinary practises and colleges, to help meet the challenges of preventing the spread of disease amongst livestock.


How does the Bio-Sparge Wheel Washer work?

The onboard computer controls everything so you don’t have to, which makes the system simple to operate, and robust enough to work in challenging environments. The programmable bio-sparge is automatically triggered by vehicles as they enter your premises. It incorporates a dosing valve to apply a disinfectant solution via stainless steel pipework and through brass spray nozzles to the sides and underside of vehicles as they drive through. A typical arctic lorry would use 9 litres in 18 seconds if traveling at the suggested speed of 5mph.

Our range of BIO-SPARGE automatic vehicle sprayers provide you with a low cost disinfectant wheel and chassis spray system to strengthen your biosecurity and significantly reduce the risk of disease entering your business.

We have a number of systems in our range to suit your requirements. The most popular are our SMB (Smart Movement Beam) systems which use sophisticated photo-electric sensors to automatically trigger the spray cycle when a vehicle approaches.

Users can easily select Entry spraying only, both Entry & Exit spraying, or Exit only and the BIO- SPARGE always automatically mixes the water and disinfectant / chemical to the pre-set strength. Our SMB systems also incorporate Adjustable Spray Times and Automatic Alarms providing you with a flexible and robust system which will reliably operate in the most challenging environments.

We have found the Bio-Sparge to be reliable, user friendly, effective and with a great back up service provided by Bodo Limited. It is used for the Royal Norfolk Show where there are approximately 800 to 1000 vehicle movements on the gates. We have two Bio-Sparges one is position on the sheep entrance and the other on the cattle, goat and pigs entrance. When looking at other solutions we found the Bio-Sparge to be the most simplistic and effective product on the market. We also like the fact that it is portable and can be moved easily to other entrances we have at the show.
