There are many things that can upset the air balance in a hatchery, some of which go unnoticed for years as they only effect hatchabiity at certain times of the year or under certain load conditions
Random unexplained, well investigated variability in hatches often due to mid to late deaths in the incubator and hatchers.
Noticeable seasonal variation in hatches
Noticeable variation at different capactities and demands
Higher incidences of mushy chick during certain times of higher capacity
A few things to note:
Some of the new generation hatching/incubaton machines, at times, have much higher demands for air than older ones, due to the adoption of more efficient variable fan speeds, controls and emergency ventilation systems. Often these go un-noticed until the warmer season arrives and all machines are demanding higher volumes of air to cool
Any addition to rooms in the hatchery, be it a new machine or even a heater fan, can often upset the airflow balance of the incubation and hatching rooms.
We offer the following services relating to air flow:
One off air flow investigation & Recommendations
Annual or seasonal air flow monitoring
Installation of monitoring/alerting devices
Air quality and air flow within hatcheries and incubators, is one of the environmental factors which has a huge impact on hatchability. Yet is is possibly one of the most unmonitored and under-estimated!
