- Pigs2Heat delivers energy savings and concrete sustainability solutions for the livestock farming industry
Pigs produce ammonia, among other things. An air scrubber can be installed to filter the outgoing ventilation air from odours and ammonia. This installation prevents the emission of environmentally unfriendly gases.
Advanced air scrubbers can not only filter the air but also extract heat from the air into water. This air heat can be used purposefully. Depending on how the pigsty is heated, extracted air is between has a temperature of 25 to 30 degrees Celsius.
Water in the air scrubber is not pure, as all sorts of additions are present. That’s why a plate heat exchanger is needed to transfer the heat stored in the water to the Pigs2Heat unit. In this unit the water temperature is upgraded to 65 degrees Celsius, to be used to heat the pigsty. For example, the heat can be used in the floor heating installation. The Pigs2Heat unit needs to be adjusted to the available ventilation air and required heating capacity.
