Ventilation Control and Automation

Bird health – Variability – Constant Monitoring/Operation

01

Ventilation control is important to any poultry facility, because it is critical to ensure and improve health of the birds. Proper conditioning and movement of air will help ensure the desired climate for the birds.

02

A control system is required to automatically manage ventilation devices:

  • Fans (mixing, stir)
  • Cooling devices (cool cells, misters)
  • Heating devices (gas-fired burners, in-floor, hydronic, geothermal)
  • Inlet devices (baffles, inlet doors and curtains
  • Exhausting devices (curtains, inlet doors

03

Reasons for ventilation is to provide ample and clean oxygen to the birds (at least ½ CFM per bird per minute), air movement to manage barn moisture and remove ammonia, and manage dust.
