With the company’s new, simple method of measuring ammonia emission from livestock housing, VengSystem A/S has attained a three-star New Product exhibit at Agromek 2018.This new measuring system – the VE118 System – has been approved as a New in Europe exhibit.
The VE118 can measure the factual emission from the livestock housing. The system does not apply an ammonia sensor. Instead, the VE118 is installed as a central unit which is linked to one or more measuring impeller interfaces positioned in the ventilation outlets.
These register the amount of air flowing through the livestock housing. An electric volume pump leads a fraction of this air via a fluid container which retains the ammonia present in the air.
Once a year, the fluid container is removed and forwarded to a laboratory for analysis to determine the nitrogen content in the fluid container.
One unit of the VE118 system can measure the emission from three different livestock housing units, for example, a sheep cot, a mating pen and a gestation pen.
With this new measuring method, VengSystem can contribute to simplifying the authority’s environment inspection. The company stresses that this is attained due to the fact that the measuring is based on the factual emission instead of tabular values.
