Our French sister company Fancom Eurl in Vitré has won an Innov’star for a special ATM adapter for central exhaust ducts. The adapter box reduces the air resistance in the central duct and thus improves the efficiency of the central ventilation, which results in energy savings of up to 30%.
Less resistance in the central duct
In a central exhaust system, the air is extracted by exhaust fans in the central duct. Each section has a highly accurate measuring and control unit that continually measures and regulates the amount of ventilation in each section. The system ensures the control valve is in an optimal position, under all circumstances. All the sections are supplied with enough fresh air using minimum energy.
In the French pig houses, the central duct always runs underneath the sections, creating a large distance between the measuring and control units in the exhaust duct and the connected pig sections. The ATM adapter connects the measuring and control units to the central duct. The position and shape of the special ATM adapter reduces the air resistance and ensures that the air can flow into the central duct much more easily. This makes central ventilation much more efficient and results in energy savings of up to 30%.
This ATM adaptor is only available for the French market and can only be bought from our French distributor Fancom EURL.
The Innov’star award will be presented during the SPACE trade show that will take place from 10 to 13 September 2019 in Rennes, France. You can find us in Hall 2-3 at booth C22.
