ITB has launched a new ventilation system for free-range livestock housing with equal-pressure ventilation, called ClimaMix.
ITB said accurate distribution of intake air is a vital requirement for a good climate in livestock housing in order to prevents cold, damp and draughts for animals. ClimaMix has been specially developed for equal-pressure livestock housing, which keeps pressure in the housing the same under all conditions, preventing problems when the exhaust hatches are opened.
ClimaMix consists of a reinforced fan housing with a distribution plate welded on to it. The distribution plate has a number of equal-sized compartments into which the air is blown with laminar flow. The climate concept has been designed so that the throw of the intake air is adjusted to the housing dimensions, helping animals distribute themselves optimally throughout the area and remain health.
ClimaMix is completely made from HDPE plastic which provides long-term resistance to the extreme conditions in livestock housing. ClimaMix is also available as a construction kit that is easy to transport and simple to install.
