Duck-billed pig drinker consists of valve body, valve plug, sealing ring, return spring, corking, sieve, etc. The valve body and valve plug are made of brass and stainless steel, the return spring and corking are made of stainless steel, and the sieve is made of engineering plastics. The overall structure are simple and corrosion-resistant.
The Working Process of Duck-billed Pig Drinker
When pig wishes to drink, they hold the drinker in its mouth and bite the valve rod to let the water go through the gap of the valve plug and sealing ring. When pig stops biting, the return spring will haul back the valve rod, and the gap is sealed again to stop the water flowing. This kind of drinker has good sealed performance and slow water flowing, convenient for pig to drink.
Duck-billed Pig Drinker Application
There’re two kinds of duck-billed drinker, the small one with flow of 2-3L/min, and the big one with flow of 3-4L/min. The small one is suit for piglet, and the big one is suit for fattening pig and adult pig.
The greatest feature of pig nipple drinker is simple structure. It is composed by shell, mandril and steel ball. When pig wishes to drink, it pushes the mandril and the water goes through the gap of shell, mandril and steel ball. When pig stops pushing, the water pressure and the weight of steel ball and mandril will make them tight coupling, so the water will stop flowing immediately. This kind of pig dinker has strong filtration capacity for sands or other impurities. Nipple drinker must reduce the pressure when it is put into use, in order to avoid the water flow too fast for pig to drink.
Install Method of Pig Drinker
The angle of installation is 45º-75º, and the terrain clearance for piglets is 25-30cm, for growing pigs ( 3-6 months’ old ) is 50-60cm, and for adult pigs is 75-85cm. he drinker should be installed in defecation area, which is away from pig’s resting area. The pig drinker needs to be checked regularly, clean the dirties, adjust and strength the screws. The component should be changed timely if there’s any malfunction.
