A New Lighting System For Cage Keeping Of Laying Hen. A New Level Of Energy Efficiency of the Ivelsy Svedios

31 03 2014 | Company News
Some attendants at the Ivelsy stand at the Agro Farm exhibition were surprised to learn the Ivelsy lighting systems parameters: "You must be joking. A system for a poultry house 18x96 cannot consume less than 1 kW".
 
In what follows, it turned out that the power consumed by our new systems is so small that seem to be unbelievable.
 
Remember the joke about a woman who wanted to grow thin very much. When her weight was about zero she got nervous that soon it would be nothing to strive for. They calmed her: "Dont worry, there are negative numbers as well!"
 
Today well give a review of new lighting systems for cage equipment. Those who can multiply kilowatts and rubles together will easily make certain conclusions and choose a system generating additional constant income.
 
Concerning negative numbers: we made progress and improved energy consumption figures. So,
 
A new lighting system for laying hen based on
TSLGG400SUL-4NEA30 / TSLG-G401PUL-4NEA30 lights appeared.
 
The first successful tests were made at four poultry farms in Russia and Ukraine where the excellent figures confirmed high efficiency of the new systems. The poultry farms specialists assembling the first system have dismantled 35% of lights and have used them in the next poultry house.
 
As a result of applying several engineering decisions, several parameters are achieved simultaneously: evenness is increased, consumed power is decreased, the number of lights per poultry house is reduced.
 
Lets revise 2 variants of installing the system and demonstrate consumed power for the following programme of growing the rearing flocks:
 
Period
Illumination, lux
1..8 days
50 lux
9..21 days
10 lux
22..120 days
5 lux
 
 
Here are the results of installing the systems for different types of cages:
 
   1. Poultry house of 96m x 18m, 6 batteries, 4 tiers
 
Poultry type: rearing flocks
Number of lights: 2x7=154 pcs.
Max power of the light: 9.6 W
Average illumination on feeding troughs of the cage at max power: 65 lux

Consumed power of the system at:
Minimum required illumination 5 lux for the given type of bird: 128 W
Maximum required illumination 50 lux for the given type of bird: 1280 W
Electric energy quantity in 120 days of keeping: 315 kW*h

   2. Poultry house of 30.6m x 6.6m, 6 batteries, 4 tiers

Poultry type: rearing flocks
Number of lights: 41 pcs.
Max power of the light: 9.6 W
Average illumination on feeding troughs of the cage at max power: 90 lux

Consumed power of the system at:
Minimum required illumination 5 lux for the given type of bird: 23 W
Maximum required illumination 50 lux for the given type of bird: 230 W
Electric energy quantity in 120 days of keeping: 57 kW*h
 
Special attention is required to evenness of illumination of the lighting system: illumination at the feeding trough of the bottom tier is only in 23-28% less that at the upper tier.
 
Having visited one of the poultry farms where the system of another producer was installed we noticed that the bottom cage is not occupied by the poultry. The illumination of the bottom tier was 3 times less than the illumination of the upper tier. That is why the zoo technicians from the poultry farm have made a decision to leave the bottom cage empty. It was strange for us that they were satisfied with such equipment though it was bought several dozens of the lighting systems. Any qualified specialist is able to estimate it the economy of electric energy is much larger than costs for heating the bottom tier and the loss of profit from absence of bird there. The workers did not meet the needs of the enterprise in this case.
 
Developing our systems we consider all the details of the lighting systems: we take care of increasing the energy efficiency, the evenness of illumination, we improve durability. We do it to increase the efficiency of the enterprises simultaneously caring about their stockholders, workers and uncountable consumers of the poultry products.
