Nipple drinker is an automatic water supply system, which is widely used in mechanized laying hen farms and breeder farms. It is suitable for laying hens, finishing chickens and chicks over 1 week old. Using a nipple drinker has the following advantages:
Water saving: According to experiments, the nipple drinker can save 75% to 80% of water compared with the constant flow of the water tank. Today, the application of the nipple drinker is of great significance in today's shortage of water resources.
Reduce disease: due to the good sealing performance of the nipple drinker piping system, the water is not directly exposed in the chicken house, avoiding dust and pathogenic bacteria entering the water, and also avoiding cross-infection caused by chickens due to drinking water, which is conducive to epidemic prevention of chickens and disease spread.
Reduce labor intensity: The use of nipple drinking fountains saves the work of manually rinsing the water tank, and it is also convenient for manual feeding, which improves labor productivity.
Save feed: According to the test of Shanghai Agricultural Machinery Research Institute, compared with water supply in water tanks, a 10,000-hen laying hen house can save about 8 tons of water per day, save 45.2 kg of feed.
The use of the drinking fountain has the advantages of cleanliness, water saving, feed saving, keeping chicken manure dry, without cleaning, saving labor, improving feed remuneration, and improving the management level of chicken farms. The design of the nipple drinker is sensitive and reliable, and has high sealing performance. It relies on its precise angle and smooth surface to achieve sealing. It is worn during use, and the more it is used, the more sealed it is. It is normally used for more than ten years.
