Dual Dry, our new desiccant for baby pigs

January, 2017

TechMix Global announces the introduction of Dual Dry™, an innovative new drying agent to support newborn and pre-weaned pigs to have a healthy start in life. Dual Dry is specifically formulated to dry the environment and the pig itself. The dark color of Dual Dry promotes absorption of radiant heat and increases the young pigs core body temperature. Applying Dual Dry to mats absorbs moisture, creating a better environment for the caretaker, as well as the baby pig. It also helps to reduce the microbial load present.

“We at TechMix pride ourselves on listening and working directly with our customers to provide innovative, quality products to fit their needs, and this product is no exception,” says Mike Nelson, TechMix CEO. “The color for better radiant heat absorption, the multi-texture formula for drying and membrane removal, the polybag for disinfecting, and even the weight was all considered, tested, and trialed before launching this product.”

Dual Dry logoDual Dry is not only a leading product due to its innovative characteristics but it is the more economical choice. Dual Dry is twice as absorbent as other drying agents available, leading to a 30-50% reduction in product usage during day one processing.

It is recommended to use Dual Dry immediately after birth by holding the newborn piglets over a container of Dual Dry and rubbing the product on the pig vigorously from the neck to the tail until the pig is dry. When it is cold, wet or pigs are susceptible to scouring, sprinkle Dual Dry on comfort mats and/or flooring to soak up moisture.
