Poultry house flame sanitizer for insect, disease and ammonia control

Let me introduce you to the Red Dragon Poultry House Flame Sanitizer. An old fashioned technology is now a new and improved way to eliminate pests, disease and ammonia from broiler house operations while reducing or eliminating the need for costly chemicals and time consuming, labor intensive wind rowing. Operating at one-half mile per hour, the poultry house sanitizer consumes approximately 47 gallons of propane to treat a 16,000-square-foot house by safely heating the litter to 1400F. This temperature effectively kills pathogens which cannot develop resistance to cell-rupturing heat. It is easily pulled behind a typical small farm tractor with a three point hitch, and is safe and economical to use.

Hands down – this is the best way to get your poultry house back up on top of the payout scale!

Chemicals are losing effectiveness in controlling poultry diseases such as Avian flu, LT, salmonella, E. coli, and coliform. Research on the effectiveness of the poultry house sanitizer conducted by Dr. Susan Watkins at the University of Arkansas showed that exposure to heat dramatically reduced pathogens. The results of this research confirm that heat is a consistent pathogen killer, as these microorganisms cannot build up a resistance to its cell-rupturing effects. 

Windrowing is one currently accepted way to handle persistent disease problems in poultry houses. That means 8-10 days until you can start your next flock of birds, and a lot of extra labor. The typical temperature ranges from about 135F, up to a maximum of about 170F, depending on moisture content and the amount of time the pile is left standing. These temperatures are not usually adequate throughout the piles to kill pathogens and pests. Meanwhile, ammonia levels in your house increase as does the need for additional ventilation and chemicals like PLT or A7. Darkling beetles also tend to increase, necessitating the use of even more chemicals. Growers are tired of the extra work and less than optimum results from windrowing and are ready for safe, quick, effective flaming!

“It is our recommended practice for growers to use flame sanitation to rid poultry houses of any pinfeathers, dust or other residue capable of carrying disease
– Carla Everett, Director of Public Information for the Texas Animal Health Commission.
Just about every grower has seen improvement in their flocks with the Flame Sanitizer or have maintained their top performance level. Farmers who were at the bottom of the scale in flock quality and were losing money came out on top after the first flock! Another benefit is the amazing reduction in the number of darkling beetles, while flaring off ammonia and drying out the litter in a very short time, only a few hours. All of this with only one or two passes of the tractor through the broiler house after de-caking. If you want to be really thorough, you might till up the litter and make another run through. There is no need to remove the old litter, another cost savings.

I’ve seen it- improved performance in your poultry house with only a few hours work. What are you waiting for?

Most notably, the growers are seeing increased livability in the third and fourth week, when they most need it. The 30-35 day livability rate is important because high mortality at that age has a direct negative effect on feed-conversion rate and the grower’s bottom line.
The poultry house sanitizer also flames off the ammonia vapors in the litter, allowing for the first three weeks of production to be virtually ammonia-free.

Think about it

Before: walking into your poultry house and needing to hold your breath on the way to turn on the ventilation fans.

After: Breathe comfortably with the fans off and the doors shut.

All without costly chemicals.

Your birds will appreciate it, too.
