Optimal livestock cooling in stables! How does it work?
Cold water of 10°C is produced with a cooling machine and is then sent through an air/water heat exchanger to the incoming air, which cools and dehumidifies it. In the past few days, we see moisture dripping down the heat exchangers in stables, which is a good thing as it means we are not adding moisture to the incoming air. Such as we would experience with other solutions such as pad or mist cooling.
The combination of this cooling method for cooling stables with solar panels is ideal. At times in the summer when there is a peak in the production of solar energy, there is also a peak in the energy absorbed by the chiller. The energy costs of the chiller are then eliminated by the company’s own production of solar energy.
