In modern farming there is a big incentive to reduce energy costs, including the costs for heating the livestock house. At SKOV, we are constantly striving to develop and manufacture products and systems that ensure optimum animal conditions and the greatest reduction in energy consumption for the producer. SKOV offers a heat recovery unit that will lower your heating costs without compromising the livestock house climate. The heat recovery unit utilises the heat in the exhaust air to heat the fresh air being introduced into the house.
Reduce your energy consumption with a heat recovery unit
62% heating cost reduction
Test studies by the Danish energy provider Energi-Nord have documented a 62% heating cost reduction for a broiler producer with 40,000 animals when using a heat recovery unit. In addition to reduced heating costs, the report also demonstrated reduced air humidity and CO2 concentrations. Lower air humidity means drier litter and better air quality, meaning better animal health.
Integrated part of the system
The heat recovery unit is a fully integrated part of the overall ventilation system, controlled via the house computer which displays all relevant heat recovery unit data, including the amount of recovered energy.
Flexible and easy to clean
The heat recovery unit is suitable for nearly all house types and offers a capacity suitable for 10,000 broilers. In other words, 3-5 heat recovery units would typically be required per broiler house. The heat recovery unit can be quickly and easily cleaned between batches.
