We can help you design multi-function systems consisting of proportioning, sanitizing, foaming and/or rinsing systems.

Proportioning & Foaming Systems

Our water driven chemical proportioning system will automatically refill a tank with ready-to-use chemical solution. When the solution in the tank drops below a pre-set level, the float valve triggers an air-activated solenoid to start the water flow. Using city water pressure, a venturi injection system draws and blends chemical concentrate into the water stream to create an accurately diluted solution. The system cycles continuously. Dual magnetic float valve design includes a primary valve to regulate normal operation and a secondary fail-safe valve to shut off the system if the primary float valve malfunctions.

Upon demand, an air driven pump system will transfer ready-to-use chemical solution to the foamer. The foamer creates foam by injecting compressed air into the solution to greatly increase volume and coverage ability. The foam is then projected through the discharge hose and nozzle on to any surface at distances up to 12 feet.

Proportioning & Foamer System

  • Heavy-duty chemical tank with drain
  • Magnetic float valves (primary and fail-safe) with polypropylene floats
  • Air inlet ball valve
  • Air-activated water solenoid
  • Machined injector body
  • Color-coded precision metering tips
  • Polypropylene 1/2″ air-operated double diaphragm pump
  • Compressed air ball valve & regulator/filter with gauge
  • Chemical solution suction tube with strainer
  • Discharge hose with MPT fitting
  • Machined foamers
  • Stainless steel inlet and discharge ball valves
  • 50′ hoses, polypropylene foam wand & fan nozzle
  • Stainless steel hose hangars

Sanitizing & Rinsing System

We can design combination systems for applying one chemical as foam, another chemical as a sanitizing spray and for rinsing. Using standard city water pressure, a venturi injection system draws and blends chemical concentrates into the water streams to create accurately diluted solutions using precision metering tips to control chemical usage. Compressed air is injected into the foaming solution which is then projected through the foam hose and fan nozzle. The sanitizer solution can be projected as a “flooding” spray for fast complete coverage. Finally, the system rinses at full pressure using stainless steel nozzles.


  • Designed for precision foam application, and to rinse and sanitize medium to large surfaces and objects
  • Adjustable foam consistency (wet/dry)
  • Stainless steel mounting bracket
  • Stainless steel inlet and discharge ball valves
  • Machined foamer and sanitizer bodies
  • Color-coded precision metering tips to set dilution ratios
  • Combo foam / sanitize hose, polypropylene foam wand and fan nozzle
  • Rinse hose and stainless steel nozzle

Cleaning and effective disinfecting are critical elements to maintaining a healthy farm. It is not possible to completely sterilize every surface but it is important to do as much as possible to ensure that disease transmission is not likely to occur.

According to most veterinarians, the best practices for cleaning and disinfecting animal farms generally consists of the following six steps:

  • Pre-clean – Pre-clean by removing excess organic material by scraping, shoveling, and sweeping. You can also pre-soak to soften dried waste and then pre-rinse. Soaking normally cuts down on the washing time.
  • Clean – Do your main cleaning with an appropriately-sized pressure washing system and detergent. Hot and cold water can be used. Although it will speed up cleaning, hot water may cause steam and visibility problems in the winter. Pressure washers come in range of flow rates and pressure ratings so choose one that fits your operation and does not cause harm to the staff or facilities.  Finally, choose a safe, effective cleaning solution to maximize your cleaning process. It will help break down and remove organics and grease better than plain water.
  • Rinse – After washing, rinse all surfaces very well to remove loose waste, grease and detergent.
  • Disinfect – Disinfection is the next critical step in the cleaning process to kill the bacteria. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maintains an extensive list of approved disinfectants. Numerous industry and university sources can be utilized to help you choose the best one to fit your target pathogen. Most disinfectants are designed to be applied as foam. Foamers are especially effective with disinfectants since they increase the surface dwell time and assure complete coverage since they show exactly where the disinfectant has been applied.
  • Final Rinse – A final rinse with the pressure washer is required to remove all of the disinfectant.
  • Drying – Sufficient drying time is required to remove all moisture from the building and surfaces. Eliminating residual water can greatly decrease the survival rate of viruses and bacteria. If available, heaters can be used to evaporate as much water as possible before moving livestock back into the area. Although timing and space is often limited, it is recommended that the rooms be completely dried 2-3 times per year before moving the animals back to the rooms. This extra time will help dramatically reduce contamination.

We can work with your staff and custom-design a complete washing and water treatment system based on your needs.

For washing, rinsing and disinfection, we offer a range of pumping and pressure washing systems featuring manual, automated and Variable Frequency Drive controls. A Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) system is one of the most cost effective units to run and maintain and allows multiple users at the same time. Critical disinfection foaming and sanitizing systems can also be added to the washing/rinsing systems.

We also can help you treat the wash water so that it can be properly discharged. If the washing process produces a lot of solids, we have a range of solutions to first separate the solids from the wash water.

We provide the following equipment:
