Replace BIL Inlets with TJW Inlets
and Increase Airflow by 39%

If you are building new, remodeling, or retrofitting, you can increase airflow by 39% by replacing the BIL4000 inlet with the TJW4334 wall inlet. Replacing the BIL with the TJW is a very efficient way to manage the incoming air. The TJW’s translucent louver blades allow light into the room, are easy to clean, and won’t break. They are available in four sizes and are all Bess Labs tested.

Stir Fans Break Up Stratification &
Save 10 - 25% of Heating Costs

In this month's Production Tech Bulletin, Burl discusses the benefits of using a temperature gun to address inside air temperature fluctuations of your hog barn. Temperature fluctuations can mean higher fuel bills and poor pig performance.

As seen in Temp Gun 3D Video Simulation, you should measure the temperatures both at the ceiling and the floor near the outside wall, as well as at the center of the hog barn.

By addressing these temperature fluctuations, you can improve your air stratification and improve pig performance. One easy way to do so is to use stir fans. Stir Fans break up air stratification and save between 10 - 25% of heating costs.

Burl Moody Production Tech Bulletin:
Is the Air Coming Through the Inlets?

This month, Burl discusses the challenges of controlling airflow in livestock buildings and ways to achieve adequate static pressure.

Discussed both in the newsletter and in a new 3D Video Simulation, air leaks come from many different areas including shutters that don't seal well, holes in curtains, and inlets that leak. Condensation and air leakage on C2000 / Quad Inlets will result in inlet freeze-up in very cold winter.

If your hog barn doesn't have static pressure, the minimum ventilation system will not mix the air properly and result in poor pig health and performance, as well as increased heating costs.

Heating Costs Going Through the Roof!

In November's Production Tech Bulletin, Burl discusses the importance of replacing old C2000 / Quad Attic inlets with Insulated Inlets for better pig and barn performance. C2000 / Quad Inlets allow air leakage back into the attic, deteriorate the structural integrity of the building, and freeze-up in very cold weather.

In the C2000 / Quad Attic Inlet Replacement Video, you are able to see how easily it is to replace the old inlet with the new JD2900 Insulated Inlet. The JD2900 has the same size rough opening as the C2000 and is insulated to minimize condensation, dripping, and freeze-up during very cold weather.

Using GC1140 Gravity Vent with Machine Actuator
to Prevent Air Leakage in Attic

When fresh air is needed in the poultry house, the vent machine will release tension from ceiling air vent. Once a static pressure of 0.06 is achieved, the ceiling inlets will open, bringing fresh air into the room. When fans shut off, the attic inlets will immediately close. The vent machine will then pull tension against the attic inlet, ensuring a tight seal and eliminating hot air from entering the attic. Learn more

Everyday Equipment Issues Affect Static Pressure

If you have ever been to the doctor for a check-up you know the first thing they do is check your blood pressure. Why? It is critical to the proper metabolic functions performed by other organs in your body. Static pressure (as it pertains to the air pressure in a building) is equally important to the proper functioning of a ventilation system. This article helps you detect problem areas and explains how affects static pressure and gives suggestions on how to improve environment for your animal. Read More
