The company consists of two linked houses, which are located in a valley, miles away from civilization. In the right on the picture you see the sow house with piglet sections. The other house accommodates the growers and finishers. Both houses have a central exhaust channel with air scrubbers. This prevents inconvenience for the environment. This Western European ventilation principle is new for South Korea.
Fresh air enters the house at the bottom and is pre-treated. In the wintertime the incoming air is heated up and in the summertime it is cooled off. This indirect air inlet also prevents draught over the animals
The pre-treated air is brought to the sows through the grid floor in the central corridor.
Extra summer valves are automatically opened if the outside temperature exceeds 35 degrees. Especially in the Korean rain season with high temperatures in combination with a high air humidity this extra fresh air is the only way to get enough cooling.
De ATM meet- en regelunit in de afdeling meet continu de luchtverversing in de afdeling. Door een uitgekiende stand van de regelklep draaien de ventilatoren altijd op de meest ideale stand, nooit te veel en nooit te weinig. Zo komt er altijd voldoende verse lucht in alle afdelingen met minimaal energieverbruik.
PIC is the international leader in providing genetically superior pig breeding stock and technical support for maximizing genetic potential to the global pork chain. The great-grandparent house in South Korea, with a capacity of 550 sows, has been completely built according to Western standards. By applying the energy-efficient CentralFlow ventilation system including air scrubbers that reduce the emission of ammonia, dust and noise, PIC Korea goes far ahead of the Korean demands for a sustainable production.
