Our natural livestock management products will help protect your animals from the dangers of high ammonia levels and moisture accumulation.
These products are efficient, easy to use and safe for all types of animals.
Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is composed of the fossilized exoskeletons of microscopic algae known as diatoms. DE is highly porous and, as a result, offers significant absorption capabilities.
Natural diatomaceous earth (non-calcined DE), like that found in our Livestock Management products, is prepared by drying at a low heat to prevent organic components from being lost. The delicate structural integrity of the diatoms is therefore preserved by this careful process. As a result, the naturally occurring amorphous silica remains in its natural state and contains less than 1% crystalline silica.
Zeolite belongs to a family of hydrated aluminosilicate minerals with a three-dimensional cage-like structure (similar to a honeycomb). Much like diatomaceous earth, zeolite is also highly porous. This highly porous granular mineral effectively absorbs ions and molecules. Most noteworthy, the cage-like structure of zeolite, and its strength as an absorbent and catalyst, make it useful in a variety of ways. In many applications, zeolites are reusable over and over again.
There are hundreds of different types of zeolites that occur naturally and many that are man-made.
Absorbent Products’ zeolite is a pure, natural mineral found in volcanic ash deposits. It comes from the mineral family heulandite‐clinoptilolite and is mined in British Columbia, Canada.
