Preparing for Cold Weather Ventilation

It’s time to start thinking about and preparing for cold weather ventilation. Even though minimum / transition ventilation is important year round, it is even more important to get things right during cold weather to assure the welfare of the chicken and control of litter conditions. It is not as Read More . . .

Retrofit to Reduce Labor Costs and Improve Your Barn Performance

Retrofit projects allow producers to use existing structure(s) to add new components. Double L offers several replacement ceiling and wall inlets that fit into your current rough openings. As production costs continue to rise, we need to do all we can to help minimize these expenses. University articles have listed Read More . . .

Circulation Stir Fan System Maximizes Litter Moisture Removal

A circulation fan system is used not only to break up temperature stratification and create more uniform conditions from one end of a poultry house to the other – but just as importantly – stir fans are used to increase the level of air movement over the litter to aid Read More . . .

What Is The Difference Between Recessed Wall Inlets and Flush Mount Wall Inlets?

Ideal broiler flock performance is greatly affected by correct ventilation management. It is important to note not all poultry sidewall inlets are created equal – some poultry sidewall inlets are better at directing air across the ceiling than others. As the poultry industry is evolving, house design and construction are Read More . . .

The Evolution of Hog Barns is Progressing – Your Equipment Should Too

Technology: always evolving, being modified, and improving over time. Swine barns follow this exact model. Think back to barns built almost 30 years ago. The production practices, barn construction, ventilation practices, and equipment to service the animals have all evolved drastically. The driving factor to these changes is usually to Read More . . .

Poultry Ventilation System a Major Factor in Flock Performance and Your ROI

High Broiler Flock Performance Depends Predominantly on Accuracy and Efficiency of Ventilation System. During minimum ventilation periods, producers are concerned about moisture, litter condition, keeping the birds warm, and air quality. The more control producers have over air quality, air temperature, and energy usage the more control they will have Read More . . .

Lack of Static Pressure Detrimental to Hog Building Performance

Inlets will not perform without Static Pressure and if you have no negative Static Pressure, you have NO ventilation. Static pressure is defined as “the pressure exerted by a still liquid or gas, especially water or air.” This simply relates to the occurrence of a slight decrease in pressure within Read More . . .
