Sprinkler systems wet the cows with a large droplet and then use fans to blow across the cow's bodies to evaporate the water and cool the cows. In most cases a pipeline has been installed next to the feeding area and mounted with low pressure 180degrees nozzles spreading the water over the cows back. A spray pattern with a radius of max. 2.40m is wanted so the freestalls don't get wet.
Nozzle size determine the waterflow rate . Only the correct pipe diameters, pressure regulators , thermostats and timers make the system complete and successfull. Abbi-Aerotech can help you making the correct installations.
High pressure fogging systems evaporative cooling is used to cool the air above the cow and not wetting the cow.
A fog-ring is mounted on the fans consisting of 6, 8 or 10 nozzles. A high pressure waterpump supplies the water at 70 Bars to the nozzles, where a fine mist vaporizes , absorbing the heat and transferring it away from the cow. Depending on the humidity level in the barn, temperature drops of 3-5 degrees C are reached. Important is the control of humidity levels and the settings made on the controls.
Abbi-Aerotech can help you making the correct installations.
The fogging system works with high pressure pumps at 70 Bar and by means of special nozzles the water is nebulous into drops of just 10 microns. The nebulous water evaporates instantly, lowering the ambient temperature. The soaking system works with a low pressure system 1,3 Bar. The soaking nozzles are placed above the feeding table with a pipe or the nozzles are placed above the holding area.
Water is pumped across the pad . The airflow evaporates the water and the air cools down. Temperature can be lowered by 8-15 degrees , depending on local conditions.
The highly efficient “Aerocool” panels are easy to install and control. Pads are very effective in dry climatic conditions. In humid regions not all systems are equally suitable. In that case pad cooling is a better solution.Download product leaflet
