Oxygen, Ammoniac and Carbon dioxide concentration are indicatory of animal welfare, and its control lets optimize production indexes.
Ventilation's main goal is renewing gas concentrations by providing necessary oxygen and removing environmental pollutants, like carbon dioxide, ammonia and dust made.
Measuring of these parameters allows the farmer to set a preventive environmental management, instead of a reactive one. It is done by achieving an environment as optimized as possible to maximize productive results.
The so-called precision poultry farming is based on continuous measure and monitoring 24 hours a day, of the environment and many other factors influencing poultry farming production to anticipating potential problems.
Nowadays control of these gases is a requirement by law, being as there are now established maximum concentrations allowed. It is a matter of rigorous present that affects poultry welfare and productivity.
>> Real Decreto 692/2010
States that atmospheric ammonia concentration in the hall must not be over 20 ppm. Measurement must be done at the height of the chickens' heads.
States that carbon dioxide concentration must not surpass 3000 ppm. Measurement must be done at the height of the chickens' heads.
Hall temperature must not exceed outside temperature by more than 3ºC when the last one is over 30ºC. Humidity during 48 hours must not be over 70% when outside temperature is under 10ºC.
World's first commercial robot reading and recording:
Temperature, Humidity, Carbon dioxide, Ammonia, Carbon monoxide, Oxygen, Methane, Dust particles, Nitrogen dioxide, Hydrogen sulfide, Noise and Lightness.
Making measurement in all hall volume.
Gasmetric has achieved a multifunctional probe, first robot gear that only needs to be calibrated once a year with minimum costs, also registers and records all mentioned data above and it will become shortly an essential tool for every farmer.
Sensor box measuring: Temperature, Humidity, Carbon dioxide, Ammonia, Carbon monoxide, Oxygen, Methane, Dust particles, Nitrogen dioxide, Hydrogen sulfide, Noise and Lightness.
Data is stored in database and web. Accessible from any device with data access and cellphone alerts.
Sensor box may be moved automatically across hall, allowing to take readings on demand.
Productivity raising of farm exploitation (we will get better productive indexes in growth and fattening phases).
increased energy efficiency: Ventilations adjusted to need.
Producer will know the harmful gas incidence in profitability.
Farmer will decrease costs: Instead of facing expenses incurred from subcontracting measurements, he may acquire a quickly redeemable product which also brings value. It will become an asset for his business.
It offers farmer and administration a restricted access platform to check real readings along time..
Farmer will receive alert messages on his cellphone to aerate in case of emergency, will save in ahorrará widespread antibiotic treatments and premature deaths.
Raise quality of your product.
Farmer will know how much his farm really pollutes and will pay for real pollution values.
