THE LMS SYSTEM
The LMS water treatment system is composed of a water meter, an electronic control box and two automated dosing pumps. The system is designed to administer an acid blend through one pump and a chlorine product through the other. The acid product aims to lower the pH to aid biofilm removal and improve the efficiency of the chlorine product. The chlorine product acts to remove the bacteria from the water and prevent any additional biofilm buildup.
Upon commencement of the programme each farm is supplied with meters to test the pH and ORP of the drinking water and ensure they are within certain parameters. This has to be carried out daily with a sample of water from the end of a drinker line in each of the sheds on the farm. The system can be easily altered to ensure these measurements remain within the target range.
