Low-pressure cooling unit dairy cattle

Dairy cattle feel comfortable at low temperatures.

Also animals have an individual comfort temperature level and that is one target to be achieved. Best possible stable climate, comfortably cool air and reduced number of annoying flies. It became apparent with dairy cattle that the animals breathe calmer, eat more and prolong rumination what increases milk yields significantly.

Spray cooling vaporizes water above the walking area of cows. Vaporization makes the ambient temperature fall.

Low-pressure cooling in dairy cattle buildings achieves great success in maintaining milk yields due to the increased animal well-being and thus a consistently high feed intake.
The used double cooling nozzle atomises fine water mist and removes thermal energy from the air by evaporation.

Pressure of 3.5 bar is sufficient.

The low-pressure cooling unit is based on an easy to install system made of PVC lines and mist nozzles. A cooling branch made of PVC tubes is mounted above the cattle's walkway. Installation and distribution depends on the individual local conditions. Nozzles spray only in the walking area, resting areas remain dry. That way animals are free to choose whether they want cooling or not.

Water pressure of at least 3.5 bar is sufficient for the operation. Mist nozzles are available as single, double, triple or quadruple type. It is part of the system conception to determine which type of nozzle is best suitable for the pen.

Easy and intuitive operation.

Apart from an uncomplicated installation the low-pressure cooling systems convince with an easy to operate and menu-driven cooling control unit MBWeich 200. Cooling operation is controlled by a temperature sensor which initiates cooling in accordance with preset cooling temperatures.

The integrated pressure release prevents dripping of nozzles. For this purpose a magnetic valve opens for a few seconds and makes some water escape from the cooling pipe system. The pressure is then released and nozzles stop spraying immediately. This procedure allows short spraying intervals, such as 2 to 6 seconds spraying and 6 to 12 seconds break period. These intervals have proved effective in practice. They break temperature peaks inside stables by up to 5 °C and increase animal performance. 

Low-pressure cooling in dairy cattle buildings achieves great success in maintaining milk yields due to the increased animal well-being and thus a consistently high feed intake.
These special cooling nozzles in connection with the illustrated soaking and cooling control unit MBWeich 200 achieve best possible cooling results.

    Easy and intuitive operation of the soaking and cooling control MBWeich200 - spraying and break intervals set precisely to the second - incl. pressure release control.

  • Low-pressure cooling in cow stables leads to higher milk yields: when animals feel well their feed intake increases and thus the milk output.
