Nozzle cleans up the bottom line

Written by  Mark Daniel

With water a finite resource under the spotlight, savings are always welcome.

The new Hydrofan wash-down hose nozzle newly released by Numedic has been tested on DairyNZ research farms, and found able to save at least 1 million L of water annually on a typical 400 cow farm.

Water emerges from the nozzle as a fan jet, and the rotary union in the nozzle body allows the user to clean the cowshed yard in a sweeping motion, saving water and cost.

Manufactured from high grade stainless steel, each nozzle is supplied with a swivel hose-tail in 32mm or 38mm sizes.

Hefty power savings are also possible, says Numedic: less water needs pumping and effluent volumes are lower after wash-down.
