Ismet Mamode Air speed can be varied by simply changing the number of fans operating. This is far less expensive and simpler than installing variable speed exhaust fans.

Muhammad Faeooq Qureshi If a measurement at floor level is not accurate then in accurate conclusions will be drawn about the level of bird cooling in a house. By measuring the air speed accurately higher above the floor and realizing that air speed at bird level is around 100 ft/min lower that is better than taking a possible incorrect measurement at bird level.

Dr. Derbi: Measuring air speed in a tunnel house is not a precise science. What we are trying to do by measuring air speed a few feet above the floor is to get a relative idea of what the air speed is in the house so we can make comparisons between houses. In general it takes air speed differences of at 100 ft/min or more to result in a significant differences in bird cooling and therefore perfo ...

Figure 1. Air speeds in fifteen locations across the cross-section of a 40' X 500' broiler house with market-age birds.   Keeping market-age birds cool during hot weather is all about air speed. It’s quite simple. The greater the air speed in a house, the greater the amount of heat removed from the birds, the lower their body temperature, and the better weight gains and feed convers ...

Humidity would play a significant role in the need to tunnel-ventilate young birds. The higher the humidity the more likely you would need to tunnel-ventilate a house. The guidelines provided in the article should provide a starting point for house operation. The best way to know if you need more air speed is to monitor the front to rear temperature differential as well as the birds. If the temper ...
