Dutrion chlorine dioxide products can be used in turkey, broiler, layer and breeder facilities.

Dutrion® can be used anywhere and in all stages of poultry production. Water quality is one of the lowest input costs on the farm with significant impacts. Most of the time a reduction of 0.01 point of feed conversion can pay for Dutrion water treatment up to 3 times.

Profitable livestock production takes a lot of management skills that have a big impact on the technical results. Factors such as health status, barn temperature, ventilation, water quality, and nutrition all play a big role in reaching the animal’s genetic potential and improving the bottom line.

Field cases on performances in commercial broiler and turkey production often show:

  • Lower mortality
  • More even flocks
  • Lower condemns
  • Fewer medication cost
  • Lower feed conversion
  • More consistent weights
  • Better return on investment

Oxidation to kill Micro-organisms:

A micro-organism, or microbe, is a microscopic organism, which may exist in its single-celled form or in a colony of cells. (Include bacteria, protozoans and certain algae and fungi) When bacteria are eliminated, the cell wall is penetrated by ClO₂. Organic substances within cells and on the surface of cell membranes react with chlorine dioxide, causing cell metabolism to be disrupted.

ClO₂ also reacts directly with amino acids and the RNA in the cell. This reaction is not dependent on reaction time or concentration. Unlike non-oxidizing disinfectants, ClO₂ kills microorganisms even when they are inactive. Microorganisms are unable to build up resistance to ClO₂, in practical terms however, few bacteria live alone, and they are most often found in water and on surfaces in the form of a “biofilm” which is a close association of many millions of bacteria.

US broiler breeder flock comments:

  • Cleaner belts
  • Firmer droppings
  • Improved shell quality
  • Reduced daily mortality
  • Cleaner eggs (less time loss)
  • Increased water consumption
  • 1-1.25% increase in hatching eggs / hen housed

Molecular Size Matters

As can be seen in the chart above, the size of a chlorine dioxide gas molecule is 0.124 nm, much smaller than microorganisms and viruses, allowing the gas to easily penetrate any areas where these microorganisms might be concealed.
