Unmetered Drench System
WHY RISK IT ALL?
Adding minerals to stock drinking water is expensive and affects water palatability. Cows drink less and produce less.
DRENCHING IS BEST
Drenching cows minerals with a Numedic Drenching System is very cost effective and will increase production. Cows drink more, eat more and produce more.
Numedic drenching systems have been manufactured for 25 years. Unmetered drench systems rely on the operator to hold the drench gun open for a certain time interval to determine the volume of liquid the cow is drenched with.
Drenching is a means of orally dosing a cow with a liquid medication. Power Drenching is the term used to describe machines which take the manual effort out of drenching. (In other words, your hands no longer ache). Even a child can power drench, it really is that easy.
Numedic Power Drenching systems can handle a wide variety of medications, nutrients, vitamins, minerals and gritty powders. Power Drenching Dairy Cows is cost effective and will maximise production. “With Drenching, nothing is wasted”.
Non-corrosive stainless steel and nylon has been widely used in the construction of the Numedic drench pump. The pump is a purpose built drench pump and can handle a wide variety of materials. Gritty powders such as Magnesium Oxide(causmag) and Zinc Oxide are kept in suspension by the unique recirculating action of the pump. The casing has two separate chambers, the first is for the inlet and the second is for the return line back to the pump. This creates a vigorous stirring action to keep products in suspension. The nylon casing and impeller are both highly resistant to wear and corrosion from a wide range of products.
The Numedic drench tank is manufactured from polyethylene plastic that is used in a wide range of agricultural applications. It is both acid and alkali resistant, has good abrasion properties and has a high impact resistance. The tank has been designed with a sloping floor which optimises the mixing and delivery of the products that are drenched. 140 litres of drench is held in the drench tank which is sufficient volume for large dairy herd sizes. The tank sits in it’s specially designed galvanised frame and is bolted to the wall. There are two drainage holes in the bottom of the tank to enable the tank to be easily emptied when required.
Specially designed hoses manufactured to our own specifications are used in all Numedic Power Drenching Systems.
The diameter of the PVC non-toxic recirculating hose has been chosen to maximise flow rates in the line. When used with a Numedic drench pump sedimentation is prevented from occurring in the lines. The heavy wall thickness on the hose prevents kinking and reduces the risk of the hose “sucking flat” due to temperature and hydraulic pressure extremes.
The Numedic drench gun hose has a woven braid along its length, is very strong and is very difficult to be “kinked”. Manufactured from non-toxic PVC clear food grade hose it will provide many years of service.
All quality Numedic hoses have the Numedic logo on them.
The Numedic drench gun is a joy to use! It has been designed to fit easily into your hand and is manufactured from robust die cast aluminium. It is very light and the unique cam operation of the handle ensures easy operation. In fact, the more you “squeeze” the gun, the easier it gets. There are no seals, switches or “O rings” in the gun to go wrong or block. Both standard and hooked guns are available.
