Design of Positive Pressure Tube Systems for Milking Center Holding Area Heat Abatement
Hits : 853

It is common practice to combine moving air and soaking for effective heat abatement, yet holding areas remain the hottest spot on the dairy. Drs. Ken Nordlund and Nigel Cook

will present problems in holding area cooling, and how positive pressure tube systems provide a lower energy,  effective solution for heat abatement. Participants will gain a better understanding of the deficits of common holding area ventilation and cooling systems, and learn basic principles of positive pressure tube systems, including static pressure, uniform discharge along length of tube, and estimating throw distance of air from the tube. Participants will receive and learn to use the Dairyland Initiative's Positive

Pressure Ventilation Tube Calculator. Dairyland Initiative staff will be onhand to work with participants one-on-one to answer questions and assist in learning the program through design examples. Following the workshop, participants will be listed on The Dairyland Initiative website as trained consultants in positive pressure tube design for holding area heat abatement.


Participants must bring a computer to each  workshop that can run an Excel spreadsheet.
