Drive-Over Disinfectant Ramp
To control disease on poultry and livestock farms, a British company with offices in Texas is doing a booming business with its wheel washing system. Ian Jolly of Agriwash says, “Our products are perfect for disinfecting large or small numbers of vehicles per day in a commercial or farm setting. We can install a unit that’s 130 in. wide in 2 to 4 hrs. It has a 42-gal. tank and sells for $16,499, plus shipping.”
The Defender can be buried in the ground or driven over like a portable grain or material dump. The wash deck supports vehicles up to 10 tons per axle. Spraying starts automatically when a vehicle is detected driving onto the ramp. Disinfectant is sprayed through nozzles in the floor and side screens about 2 ft. tall so it reaches all around the wheels of a vehicle and onto the undercarriage of a trailer.  The misting spray provides maximum disinfectant coverage rather than a high pressure washing that completely cleans a vehicle.  Nozzle configuration and fluid pressure can be modified to suit weather conditions and the types of vehicles using the systems.
Agriwash also offers a boot cleaning and disinfecting unit for poultry or livestock facilities and food processing plants.
