The Next Generation cooling and ventilation system for Sow Gestation Barns.
TunnelPlus+ maximizes sow comfort with not only better air quality, but also uses high velocity, variable speed circulation fans combined with direct water cooling on the sows. Each system is fully automated, highly efficient and flexible for year-round control. With long-term quality and very low maintenance.
Traditional versions of sow cooling included drip cooling and evaporative cool cells which are high in maintenance needs, use lots of water and have issues with leaks and algae. The result is stuffy, humid, damp barns with restricted air flow, leaving room for bacteria to grow and thrive. Add in the new filtered barn trend and conditions get worse.
TunnelPlus+ ventilation and cooling systems provide direct cooling to the sows at floor level with even, powerful cooling.. The open design eliminates air restrictions and is simple to manage = low maintenance.
Results have found 72% less sow deaths in pre-farrowing rooms. TunnelPlus+ systems also stop piglet heat stress while in gestation.
