Reduce your energy consumption
with Dynamic MultiStep®
Heating and ventilation are some of the biggest postings on the energy bill in poultry production, but there are, in fact, ways to reduce energy consumption for ventilation significantly.
Stepless regulation extends minimum ventilation
It is well-known that it takes more energy to power a high fan output than a low one. This is why SKOV developed Dynamic MultiStep, so the fans are connected into groups at approx. 50% of their output. Once all the fans are connected, they are all regulated in parallel up to 100% of their output when additional ventilation is required. More fans are used, but they run at a lower output. It reduces energy consumption significantly while also maintaining good climate conditions in the house.
Reduces energy consumption by 40%
Based on calculations and data from StaldVent, a study undertaken in a Danish broiler house with 40,000 broilers showed that the annual energy consumption can be reduced by 40%, which corresponds to an energy consumption of only 0.3 kWh per broiler annually. Energy consumption is reduced, while the animals have the same good climate conditions – the only change noted was that the noise level was brought down, much to the pleasure of both employees and animals.
