Design of Positive Pressure Tube Systems for Milking Center Holding Area Heat Abatemen
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 on-hand to work with participants one-on-one to answer questions.
