How do our 3 absorbent bedding powders compare?
We stock Stalosan, Biodri and Agrisec 250. All have similar claims – to absorb excess moisture and to disinfect but which is the best? We can’t measure the amount or effectiveness of the disinfectant as that’s a bit complicated but we can compare how much moisture each one is capable of absorbing.
We started with 50g of powder in each glass. We then added 200g of water to each one, stirred and allowed to settle. This was repeated later. The initial results were quite conclusive with stalosan in third place, followed by biodri and than Agrisec. Although this photo doesn’t show it, the Stalosan had separated into 2 layers, one quite dense and the other very fluid.
24 hours later we filtered each sample to extract the water.
