Reduce energy consumption to 6 kWh per pen place with Dynamic MultiStep® Heating and ventilation are some of the worst offenders when it comes to high-energy bills for pig production. Yet in actual fact, power consumption for ventilation can be significantly reduced.
Stepless regulation extends minimum ventilation It is well known that considerably more power is consumed at high fan capacity than at low capacity. This is why SKOV has developed Dynamic MultiStep®, whereby the fans are connected in groups at approx. 50% of their output. Once all the fans are connected, they are regulated in parallel up to 100% of their output, should additional ventilation be required. Or in other words, because more fans are employed, they can run at a lower output. This reduces power consumption significantly while still maintaining a good climate inside the house.
Significant reduction of energy consumption Studies conducted in a Danish pork production showed that energy consumption can be brought down to just 6-10 kWh per pen place annually. Energy consumption is reduced, and the animals have the same good climate conditions – the only change that was noted was that the noise level was also brought down, much to the pleasure of both employees and animals.
