Preconditioning the incoming air is a must for a healthy climate in animal houses
Changing welfare standards and efforts to reduce the use of antibiotics have set high requirements on the climate that animals live in. Furthermore, operating results benefit from minimising risks such as draught and heat stress. This has led Stienen BE to develop the AeroX. This heat exchanger heats or cools the incoming air, balancing out the extremes of the outdoor climate. This results in an optimum climate in the animal house. The energy needed for this water/air heat exchanger is generated by an external source of energy (e.g. a groundwater well or surface water) or is recovered from the residual heat of the exit air from the animal house or a biogas plant.
