Zinc Sulphate Hydrometers

Zinc sulphate testers are used by sheep farmers to check the concentration level of zinc sulphate in sheep footbaths.

The product consists of a small glass tube with an enclosed weight to keep it standing upright in a liquid footbath. The tube is marked by level indicators and can then be easily read to measure the level of concentration of zinc sulphate in the liquid.  

Zinc 020 Hydrometers provide an instant zinc sulphate measure

  • Allows the farmer to keep the Zinc Sulphate level as close as possible to the recommended 10 % level
  • Maximizes the effectiveness of the footbath treatment
  • Reduces the excess costs of wastage associated with overdosing the footbath  

These specialised hydrometers can also indicate if solutions have become too dilute. If the concentration of the Zinc Sulphate in the footbath drops to below 10 %, the footbath mixture is too dilute, and will no longer work as well as it should to achieve the aims of the intended foot treatment.

If used twice daily in footbaths these specialised hydrometers will reduce wastage in chemicals and control the footrot problem.
