Livestock cooling system
Livestock cooling systems are used to provide comfort to the animals living inside, by maintaining the temperature level.These systems include combination of Fans, sprinklers, and evaporative cooling pads to maintain optimal temperature range for the animal’s well-being. The best results from a misting system are achieved when the mist is produced in an area which already has good airflow.
System is manufactured in such a way that it keeps animals comfortable and healthy. The system helps to reduce stress ,prevent heat related illness, along with that helps to improve growth and productivity.
These systems are very commonly used in
- Dairy Farms
- Swine farms
- Goat farms
- Stud farms
- Rabbit farms
- Cow and Buffalo farms
Aim of the system is to maintain optimal temperature and humidity to protect the animals from death cases ,decreased fertility and reduced production. This ensures wellness of animal and birds.
Cattle are subject to heat stress, which eventually affects milk production , and also leads to weight gain. Cooling system plays a vital role in controlling the temperature , drive cow to eat more and produce more milk. Horses are kept in barn, where the temperature is hotter than outside. Horses face difficulty in cooling themselves in such temperature. A correctly installed misting system creates a curtain of mist, which can reduce temperatures in the immediate area (depending on the outdoor temperature and relative humidity).
VAI Misting systems ensure that your facilities retain an appropriate climate providing maximum comfort for your animals (cooling for poultry foggers, buffalo, cows, pigs, chickens, horses, etc.).
Poultry fogger systems are used to dispense a fine mist or fog of pesticides or disinfectants in the poultry farms or chicken coops. They are used to control pests and diseases that can harm chickens and other poultry, such as mites, lice, and avian influenza. The system creates mist or fog by creating high pressure atomize the pesticide or disinfectant solution. Mist or Fog can penetrate anywhere , or any part of the room.
Birds and animals, like humans, are happier and more productive when comfortable. Misting reduces heat stress and increase productivity.
- Poultry Foggers provides heat stress relief for all categories of poultry
- Mortality is dramatically reduced. Stress-free broilers continue to eat and grow. Layers produce more eggs.
- Breeders are more active and produce higher quality eggs. In the hog world, Poultry Foggers increases the farrowing sow’s appetite, which improves eggs production.
- This, in turn, boosts the litter weight at weaning, increases the size of future litters and allows the sow to go back into heat quicker. Cool conditions increase sex drive and sperm count, as well as sexual development.
- Increases egg, milk, and meat production
- Reduces animal heat stress
- Reduces water and energy consumption
- Extends breeding period and growth rate
- Results in cleaner, drier surroundings
- Dust suppression and Odour control
VAI is one of the leading brand , which offers you systems that are -
MINIMAL OPERATING COSTS
Easy installation, minimum maintenance and low energy consumption. There are many proven cost-effective uses for evaporative cooling that make it the preferred choice. The installation and operating cost of Misting Systems can be much lower than traditional air conditioning.
Less expensive to install
Estimated cost for installation is 1/8 to 1/2 that of refrigerated air conditioning.
Less expensive to operate
Estimated cost of operation is 1/4 that of refrigerated air. Power consumption is limited to the fan and water pump vs. compressors, pumps, and blowers.
The constant stream of air from intake to vent through the building freshens the air in the building.
There are two types of cooling systems: (i) Air cooling system and (ii) Water-cooling system. In this type of cooling system, the heat, which is conducted to the outer parts of the engine, is radiated and conducted away by the stream of air, which is obtained from the atmosphere.
Fogger System consists of a high pressure pump, pipe line, fogger nozzles and timer unit. Water is sprayed in the form of very fine mist, some of which evaporates by the time it reaches the ground in process absorbing the heat in the atmosphere, and the balance is effective in surface cooling of birds.
