Air conditioning in the agricultural sector

Cooling systems, heating, ventilation and measuring equipment: for the best climate in agriculture

The more efficient the air conditioning in farm halls and stables, the more productive are the animals kept there. Hence, Trotec offers industry-specific solutions also for this sector. Deployed are specific cooling systems, heating and ventilation technology, all geared to their individual surroundings. The appropriate measuring equipment for monitoring the climate values is given into the bargain – for optimum climate conditions in the agriculture.

The outdoor climate is at times capricious and unsettled. Therefore, constant air conditioning is particularly important for agricultural holdings. Only thus can a reliable and efficient production in the agriculture be ensured. For farmers to be able to work and keep livestock regardless of the season and sudden weather changes Trotec developed different climate solutions: ranging from cooling systems to heating technology and mobile ventilation.

Protection during cold spells

Cold periods can be bridged by means of powerful heating systems – that way poultry, pigs, cattle and other breeding stock and fat stock are comfortable in the winter as well. Trotec oil heaters are an ideal solution for the highest demands in the agricultural sector. Depending on the dimensions of the application site and the on-site conditions farmers here can find the appropriate devices: ranging from the attractively priced oil heater fans of the IDS and the IDE series to the especially powerful and robust oil heating units of the ID series right up to the high-quality central oil heating units of the ID series. All of these can be used most flexibly and provide a cosy warmth for the livestock.

When temperatures are too high

Trotec cooling technology guarantees a precise indoor climate in stables and halls of agricultural businesses, especially for the summer. Both an excellent and well-directed air conditioning and an effective production in large halls is ensured by the commercial air conditioners of the PT series.

Air conditioning in the agricultural sector

Ventilation to prevent heat build-up

Furthermore, at high outside temperatures there is the risk of heat build-up in the stables, which is giving your animals a hard time. Due to excretions and the humid climate the germ load is also extremely high in hot conditions. A systematic and consistent ventilation is indispensable. A reliable circulation of the air in the stable and thus permanently fresh air for the livestock is ensured by the axial fans of the TTV series from Trotec. They are of a handy size, powerful and work at full speed to keep your animals healthy – whenever additional ventilation is required. Humid, dusty and often contaminated air is replaced by air containing oxygen in next to no time.

Dehumidification – the Alpha and Omega of livestock farming

Another important aspect in the agricultural business is the high humidity level in stables, originating from the animals’ perspiration and excretions, from cleaning and watering. Humid air is discharged using the desiccant dehumidifiers from Trotec – be they stationary or mobiles devices. Quickly and reliably.

With a close eye on climate values

Farmers can be on the safe side when checking the climate values on their farm on a regular basis. The moisture measuring devices and especially the climate data loggers from Trotec make strong and accurate partners, which never fail to capture climatic details.

Make use of Trotec's best practice industrial services

Since every industrial undertaking has characteristic process flows, installations and facilities, every air treatment solution demands case-specific device configurations. All in all, the combined effects of air currents, humidity conditions and temperature fluctuations are often hard to calculate on a purely theoretical basis, e.g. in airlock areas or on conveying paths. The consequence: Unnecessary additional costs due to an overestimated demand or – even worse – solutions not working sufficiently in real life.

You can count on our experts

In order to precisely calculate the demand in the industry and to develop tailor-made concepts for climate conditioning experienced climate specialists are needed. Rely on our team of experts as well as the industrial services: We analyse the individual requirement situation with you present on site, determine the specific demand for devices and develop a tailor-made project solution right up to the exact positioning of the devices.

Before the planned stationary units are installed, our service team first works with mobile versions of the drying units as part of a trial run. These can be put up without any difficulty or the need for structural changes.

During this validation phase we document all relevant climate parameters such as air temperature, relative humidity, dew point or flow rate for a final optimization of the requirement calculation.

Trotec is the only provider of this advantage:

Thanks to the unique option of non-binding trial operation you will invest solely in solutions which have verifiably proven their worth in everyday operation meeting your individual on-site requirements. The stationary units will not be ordered until you are fully satisfied with our concept. The only costs incurred consist of an inexpensive hiring flat rate for the time of test operation.

Just give us a call at +49 2452 963-777 – our industry consultants will be pleased to help you personally and provide information regarding our best practice industrial services. Or send a request indicating your personal requirements directly to our industry experts. We will answer promptly!

Application examples from practical experience:

  • Equine thermography

    The horse is one of the most popular animals in Germany. If a horse suffers a disease or an acute injury, however, costs for medical examinations can be comparatively high. The later the physical impairment is detected, the more time-consuming and cost-intensive the healing process will be. This is why thermography is increasingly used for prophylaxis, acute diagnostics and rehabilitation.

  • Air conditioning for poultry farming

    From a temperature of 10 degrees Celsius the laying performance of hens decreases substantially. On a meat chicken farm the temperatures also mustn’t drop too much in the cold season. For not all breeds are robust enough to survive a sudden drop in temperature in the coop. Therefore, farmers must be well-equipped with an appropriate heating system to offer their animals ideal climate conditions...

  • Humidification in greenhouses

    Warm temperatures and a high humidity level – those are the key factors required by tropical and subtropical plants, if you want them to grow and thrive. Mushroom farms also prefer warmth and moisture. Regular watering is not sufficient, for the majority of exotic plants absorbs moisture from the ambient air. Required for the generation of this special climate is not only a systematic heating...

  • Dehumidification for pig breeding

    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'...

  • Infrared thermography for stock breeding

    Thermal imaging cameras have for several years proven their worth in the industrial stock breeding of cattle, pigs, sheep, goats and poultry. They constitute an inexpensive and very early temperature measuring method providing important information about the overall condition of the breeding animal for both the breeder and the vet. Trotec offers a wide range of devices for infrared thermography.
