DA 4100 Floor heating
Precise temperature with automatic adjustment
The DA 4100 floor heating unit is exact and fully automated. It follows a preset curve for the batch, removing the need for manual temperature adjustments throughout the batch.
The unit measures the temperature of the water going in and coming out of the system. It enables the farm controller to precisely adjust the amount of hot water needed to maintain the preset temperature.
The controller follows a curve and automatically adjusts the temperature according to the age of the animals. It assures an even temperature throughout the batch and makes sure that the temperature setting for each batch is the same.
With the DA 4100 floor heating unit, you rarely have to adjust the temperature. If, however, the temperature needs adjustments, it can be done through the farm controller screen or remotely through FarmOnline.

Case story - Store Vognsbæk, Denmark
Danni Sørensen is very pleased that the system lets you pick a temperature curve and then sticks to it. Previously, they had to adjust the temperature between batches and whenever the heat from the boiler was unstable. “It has shown to be very precise and removed the need for manual adjustments" says Danni Sørensen.
The floor heating system can be controlled through the farm controller or FarmOnline. It has eliminated the risk that anyone walking the hallway can adjust the floor temperature. "It's a great comfort that the temperature can only be adjusted through the controller – although it hasn't been necessary for us to adjust anything because the temperature now automatically follows the same curve from batch to batch" says Danni Sørensen.
Store Vognsbæk is a modern pig farm with 2,700 sows, producing 75,000 piglets, 25,000 weaner pigs, and 16,000 finishers a year. The farm is run by the brothers Danni and Jonas Møller Sørensen, who are the fifth generation on the farm.
