HPC-Flex - Cooling System for Livestock Climate
The HPC–Flex (High Pressure Cooling) system is a multi functional system for cooling, humidifying, soaking, desinfection, and medication in buildings for any type of livestock production facilities. A correctly dimensioned cooling system will be able to remarkably reduce the temperature in a house for livestock production.
On a dry, hot summer day the HPC-Flex cooling system is capable of keeping an indoor temperature as much as 18oC below the outdoor temperature. The flexibility of the system gives you the opportunity to cool in in one, two or more climate zones.
Can be adjusted to all livestock buildings
The HPC-Flex can be adjusted to any given type of livestock building meaning that optimum placement in relation to e.g. ventilation systems is possible. The simple solution, where the system is cooling one climate zone, is a start/stop system that is activated by a climate controller.This system can be installed with one or two strings on the length of the building depending on the width of the building and on what kind of ventilation system is installed.
More climate zones
In buildings where more climate zones are needed – e.g. in a large complex for sows – the demand is cooling individually in each climate zone. Under these conditions it is necessary to install a high pressure valve at the entrance of every climate zone and from there lead the high pressure pipes to the individual climate zone. The magnet valve is connected directly to the climate controller. As the supply of water to the system varies depending on the number of rooms that needs cooling, it is necessary to speed control the pump itself with a frequency inverter.
The frequency inverter is linked to an electronic pressure gauge providing a constant water pressure of 65 bars. This ensures an equal fogging in the building and thus a constant cooling effect. The frequency inverter also works as engine protection for the pump and is programmed to stop 10 seconds after an eventual falling pressure on the system (e.g. caused by lacking supply of water or a leak on the system). In this situation the frequency inverter sends an alarm if it is linked to an alarm system.
