Poultry house air quality

poultry air qualitry monitoring

Achieving ideal environmental conditions for birds ideally request to monitor three most important air quality variables: relative humidity, carbon dioxide and ammonia

Carbon dioxide

Carbon dioxide is produced by heating systems and birds. To high carbon dioxide concentrations can lead to lethargic birds and results in reduced weight gains.


High ammonia concentrations can lead to poor feed conversions, reduced weight gains, and increased susceptibility to diseases.

Relative humidity

Low relative humidity (i.e. lower then 50%) will tend to result in higher heating costs and a dusty environment. Higher relative humidities (i.e. higher then 70%) can lead to wet litter and high ammonia concentrations.

Opticon computerized poultry air quality monitoring

Our computerized air quality systems provides the possibility to monitor relative humidity, carbon dioxide, ammonia allowing farm managers to maintain proper air quality without over ventilation and driving up heating costs
