Healthy and productive: Dehumidification for pig breeding

The well-being of your animals is a decisive factor for pig farming. Trotec desiccant dehumidifiers scrupulously fight excessive humidity levels.

Excessive humidity values and high temperatures are anything but agreeable climate conditions for the pigs kept on such farms. Be it breeding or fattening: The animals need an optimized stable climate in order to stay healthy and productive. The application of professional dehumidifiers ensures agreeable temperatures and an improved air quality, consequently immensely enhancing the pigs' well-being. The desiccant dehumidifiers from Trotec are the ideal equipment for a profit-yielding production and health in halls and pigsties.

Fresh air, permanently agreeable temperatures and of course the right food and care are the requirements for a successful and high-yield production on pig breeding and fattening farms. Only if the animals are comfortable, will they eat enough, make use of the food and so be of use to the business. If the pigsty is too moist, the animals suffer. The moisture is absorbed by the bedding, which can lead to hoof diseases. If a too high temperature adds to this, germs can spread faster. If, on the other hand, the ambient air is too cold, the pigs begin to freeze due to the cold and wet engulfing their bodies. Colds and other diseases are the result.

Optimum humidity: the Alpha and Omega of pig farming

The pigs' health should be the top priority in this business. After all, we are talking of their well-being, but also of the return yielded by the farmer. Therefore, it pays to upgrade existing individual or central exhaust systems by using additional dehumidifiers or even to establish an entire air-conditioning system. The Trotec group supplies a number of solutions in terms of air conditioning, dehumidification and ventilation. Proper dehumidification is essential, for ideal humidity values can significantly improve the entire climate and even out temperature fluctuations. The desiccant dehumidifiers from Trotec are particularly well suited for the heat recovery and dehumidification in pigsties. Whether for mobile or stationary use – the devices are durable, require little maintenance and can be configured flexibly; also they are genuine dehumidification pros – even at low temperatures.

  • Lyophilisation tunnels and frozen storage

    The food industry is facing a paradox: On the one hand, turning water into ice is the raison d'être of lyophilisation tunnels and cold stores. On the other hand, icing is a major problem in this process. Ice, hoarfrost and fog in the cooled production infrastructure lead to costly accidents and malfunctions right up to production losses. Setting up additional industrial dryers prevents icing by...
