A gas assisted solar heating system for commercial chicken brooding


, : A gas assisted solar heating system for commercial chicken brooding. Transactions of the ASAE 24(1): 182-186

The design and performance of a solar heating system which can be fitted to existing poultry houses is described. A flat plate collector 185 m2 in area, and 180 t of rock storage supply heated ventilating air to an 8000 bird house. The solar heated house showed a fuel saving of 65% compared to conventional houses in the 1978-79 winter season. A considerable part of this saving is attributed to energy conservation.

A method employing six minutes of regional curarization with 0.5 mg D-tubocurarine and single fibre electromyographic measurements (SFEMG) was used in order to study the effect of an additional small dose of D-tubocurarine. The effect of the addit...
