CAP Ventilation

Another innovation from Aerotech

CAP by Aerotech

CAP ventilationAerotech introduces a revolutionary new concept for ventilating pits in hog facilities during the cool weather months, Cold Air Pit Ventilation or “CAP”. Aerotech has used this design for specific projects over the years and have found very positive results.

A simple and effective design created through a collaborative effort between Aerotech Field Representatives, Aerotech engineering staff and innovative customers. CAP ventilation allows better air quality, less pit gas generation, lower fuel bills, and wider building design, thus lower construction cost.

The design uses a series of inlets, pipe fans and ducts that pull cold winter air from the attic and inject it into the pit. Then a pit transition pulls the cold air across the pit and caps the majority of gases below the floor. Aerotech provides the design and equipment needed at a minimal cost.
