Modern agriculture has a strong focus on lowering energy consumption, and ventilation in particular is an area ripe for significant improvement. For the past many years, SKOV has worked on developing solutions for optimal conditions for animals in livestock houses that are also energy saving.
Energy-efficient and effective solution with LPC fans from SKOV
More fans and less power consumption
SKOV has developed the control principle Dynamic MultiStep, using much less electricity to exhaust air from livestock houses. Dynamic MultiStep starts fans up at 50% of their maximum performance, and only where additional ventilation is required will the fans be stepped up in parallel to as much as 100% performance. The advantage of coupling several fans is that they all run at reduced output, thus using less power.
6 kWh per pen place per annum
Tests in a Danish slaughter pig setting indicated that energy consumption could be reduced to just 6 - 10 kWh per pen place per annum. Reduced energy consumption and the same, pleasant climate conditions for the animals - only difference noticed was a reduced noise level, a bonus for both staff and livestock.
