SKOV will most often use the so-called Spiraflex heating pipes for livestock house heating. The heating system is based on the supply and circulation of water, the heating pipes providing efficient and economic house heating. The finned tube design results in a large surface area and when comparing with a traditional, smooth heating pipe the Spiraflex tubes provide higher heat emission per metre.

Larger surface, higher heat release
The heating pipes are mounted right by the air inlet as this ensures mixing of heat with fresh air prior to reaching the area occupied by the animals. Floor heating is particularly well suited for livestock house heating but is not recommendable as the only heat source, given the relatively long reaction time. Spiraflex heating pipes make it possible to raise the house temperature relatively quickly.
