The safer formic acid
ProPhorce™ AC 628 is formic acid that can be handled with minimal risk. It is formic acid buffered with sodium formate which can be used in feed and drinking water for piglets, pigs, sows, broilers, and layers.
ProPhorce™ AC 628:
- – is equally effective as formic acid
- – is far less dangerous and corrosive to man and equipment than formic acid
- – has an antibacterial effect
- – has no ADR restrictions on transport and storage
Same advantages, less corrosivity
Buffering formic acid with sodium formate gives benefits on transport, nutritional value, safety and corrosion. The evaporation, corrosion and the pungent smell of organic acids are significantly reduced by the buffering in ProPhorce™ AC 628.
Comparison of corrosion effects on metal strips
Formic acid has shown to improve Feed Conversion Ratio and Average Daily Growth (Mroz & Partanen, 1999). Buffered formic acid has been compared to formic acid on these variables and proved equally effective as straight formic acid.
ProPhorce™ AC 628 increases feed hygiene without harming your equipment. It has a strong antibacterial effect against pathogenic bacteria such as:
- – E. coli
- – Salmonella
- – Staphylococcus
