It is impossible to achieve an optimal climate during colder periods without a proper heating system. The most suitable system for room heating is the twin-pipes system. This system can be installed anywhere, inside the air channels, along the walls or under the ventilation ceiling. We will calculate the required heating capacity for you, per compartment, building, and if necessary, for the entire farm.
Due to the years of experience with the supply and installation of the twin-pipes heating system we are able to help you with all of the questions you have regarding this system. In the leaflet below there is more information about the installation and the pros and cons of this system.
It goes without saying that we are ready to answer all the questions you have. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
The basis assumption underlying this overview is that the buildings are well insulated and that the heat generated by the animals is sufficient to offset the building’s transmission losses. In this case, the Twin-pipes are only used for heating the ventilation air. Because the heat production of young animals is still only slight when they are first stalled in, additional heat will be required in the first weeks. This additional heating cannot be delivered with the quantity of Twin-pipes calculated below. If the aim is to heat the farm with only the Twin-pipe system, we recommend that at least 30% more Twin-pipes be installed. Additional heating needs must also be taken into account when a new facility is first put into use.
Due to the pipes tapered connection with the fins, heat is channeled to the fins with maximum efficiency. Our Twin-pipes consequently provide exceptionally high heat emission. The twin-pipes heat emission was tested by the German research center DLG. At a 70 °C supply temperature the standard twin-pipes heat emission is 230 Watts/m.
When the twin-pipe system is installed in the air inlet channels, they must be filled with glycol and a heat exchanger is also required. The use of glycol prevents the Twin-pipes from bursting due to freezing. Because the temperature difference in the event of low outside temperatures is much greater when the twin-pipes are installed in the air inlet channels than when they are installed directly in the room, the heat emission for the application is much greater.
Standard twin-pipes can be counted on to provide a heat emission of 400 Watts at an outside temperature of -10 °C and a water temperature of 70 °C. In that case the black Twin-pipes will have a heat emission of 500 Watts. Due to the possible dirt accumulation on the Twin-pipes and the fluctuating water temperatures of the heating system, we recommend to install 10% more Twin-pipes than required according to the calculations.
