Evaporative cooling against heat stress in a poultry house

News

A good climate in your house is the basis for healthy animals and optimal performance. During warmer periods it is important that the house air does not heat up too much. Too much heat causes heat stress for broilers, layers, rearing, and mother animals. A (too) high house temperature has also a negative effect on productivity.

A practical way to cool during summer days is mist cooling. Mist cooling or evaporative cooling fits well with the most common ventilation systems. With negative pressure ventilation, the cooling is often placed above the wall inlets. And with equal pressure ventilation, the nozzles are often placed around the blow-in fans.

In addition to pad cooling, Scan-Air also has a high-pressure evaporative cooling system in its range. Small drops of water are evaporated in the high-pressure mist cooling system. In this way, heat is extracted from the house. This leads to a drop in the house temperature. Part of the system is a pump unit that is securely installed and vibration-resistant. A plastic pipe with stainless steel nozzles runs over the length of the house above all inlets. As a result, the mist, which is created under high pressure, is distributed throughout the house. The system is easy to assemble and clean.

Other advantages of Scan-Air evaporative cooling:

  • Made entirely of stainless steel and plastic
  • Ease of assembly
  • Easy to clean
  • More in control over the house temperature
  • Prevents heat stress
  • Keeps animal growth on track

By means of evaporative cooling, the house temperature can be lowered by up to 8 degrees Celsius, depending on the relative humidity (RH) of the outside air. Due to the mist cooling system, the RH will increase, in order to lower the house temperature. In addition to cooling, a high-pressure evaporative system can also be used for soaking stables, which simplifies cleaning. And to spray additives on the animals.
