All Botngaard delousing tarps are tailored to the individual locality. Through surveying our customers' needs, factors as cage size, desired volume, durability and design we can deliver a product that eases the job for fish farmers as much as possible.
Our delousing tarps are made of polyamide fabric with a tensile strength of 3800 N/5cm. The weight of the fabric is 210 gr/m². An important element of a successful bath treatment is the ingress of water. To have control of the amount of medical used the tarp should let through as little water as possible. For a virtually completely sealed delousing tarp Botngaard recommends a tarp produced with a coated polyamide fabric.
Our experience shows that it is very important with right volume when delousing. Botngaard delivers therefore tarps with a design that ensures this. Our experience is that correct equipment for the actual biomass will provide better economic and environmental benefits.
For delousing all types of cages. Customers have different requirements for design and strength. Botngaard tailors tarps based on individual basis.
