PWT®-pH water treatment contains the strongest animal feed grade mineral acid available. A much lower addition rate is required to acidify drinking water to biologically effective low pH levels without creating a bitter taste. More palatable water means birds won’t back off from PWT® treated water allowing optimum water consumption to be maintained—thereby improving weight gain and feed conversion, resulting in a reduced flock cost.
As the strongest and most affordable acidifier on the market, PWT® has a minimal addition rate that saves even more money as part of an acidification or chlorination program. Plus, regular use of PWT® is a safe and effective way to clean scale and bio-film from poultry water lines, creating a maximum flow rate.
When PWT® is applied it breaks down into sodium, hydrogen and sulfate.
NaHSO4 –> Na+ + H+ + SO4-
The hydrogen lowers pH, a measure of the number of hydrogen ions in a solution. PWT® is the safest mineral acid that breaks down into products naturally found in the environment.
PWT® meets the guidelines of a “Green” ingredient. It is:
PWT®follows the principles of “Green Chemistry” as described by the EPA and the California Department of Toxic Substances Control:
Alkalinity is the buffering capacity of water. It measures the ability of water to neutralize acids thereby maintaining a stable pH. Alkalinity of water consists of bicarbonates, carbonates, and hydroxides, which combine with H+ ions to neutralize them. High alkalinity water requires more acid to reduce the pH.
