Dynamic Air: Proven to the best measurement principle!
Strong winds have always been the number-one enemy of minimum ventilation, as they make it difficult to maintain sufficient and constant exhaust levels.
The Danish Technological Institute has studied which technologies are best for measuring airflow from exhaust units in pig houses, in connection with a project they carried out. The test included 14 new and existing measurement technologies, including SKOV’s Dynamic Air.
32 out of 35
The technologies were assessed according to:
• robustness in relation to the aggressiveness and dust load of the environment
• possibilities for integration into new and existing systems
• unstable measurements in laminar as well as rotary airflow
Taking everything into account, SKOV’s Dynamic Air was the technology with the highest total score, achieving 32 out of 35 – none of the other technologies received more than 30 points! We can therefore rightly assert that Dynamic Air is the technology that provides the best results for the correct measurement of airflow in the exhaust unit.
The technology behind Dynamic Air
Dynamic Air is a measuring principle that constantly measures air performance in chimneys, which improves minimum ventilation and reduces heat consumption. The Dynamic Air sensor is a manometer that measures the pressure difference between the livestock house and the exhaust unit. The climate controller calculates airflow in the exhaust unit based on the pressure measurements of the sensor and other data.
The Dynamic Air measurements constantly make allowances for any pressure loss that may occur because the exhaust unit is exposed to strong wind impacts, and therefore the fan can be adjusted closer to the actual need.
