New poultry ventilation brochure from Hydor

Salisbury based, agricultural ventilation experts, Hydor Limited, have produced a new A4, 40 page, full-colour brochure for the poultry market, demonstrating the company’s many standard and specialist products and systems for the ventilation of poultry housing.
The new brochure gives an insight into the many different products and effective and flexible solutions that Hydor can offer the poultry producer to help enhance animal welfare, growth and feed conversion. Ventilation is a major component in maintaining a healthy poultry environment.
With over 40 years’ experience of helping create and maintain the correct environment for successful poultry production, the Hydor range includes high-efficiency belt-driven fans, plate-mounted fans, roof-mounted fans, ventilation units, winches, air inlets, cooling pads, infra-red heating systems and control systems as well as evaporative cooling systems to cover every aspect of poultry care.
Whatever the application: hatcheries, pullets, free-range eggs, barn eggs, battery hens or broilers, Hydor have the product range and expertise to evaluate customers’ requirements and develop the most effective and suitable solution.
As all Stockmen know, poultry are susceptible to respiratory problems and stale air only heightens the problems of airborne, disease-carrying micro-organisms. This is just one more reason why getting their ventilation, lighting, heating, cooling and control of feed and feed-mixing right, is so important.
Maximum ventilation requirements are usually calculated to maintain an internal temperature at no more than 23°C as anything above this will cause distress for the birds. Sometimes the provision of the correct amount of air may not be sufficient and in extreme conditions some form of supplementary evaporative cooling may be required. Correct placement of fans is vital and calculations must take into account the resistance of inlets or outlets, suspended items and restrictions to a smooth airflow. Hydor’s team are on hand to help design calculate and install every aspect of these systems in order to provide the correct environment for the birds inside.
As well as giving a simple overview of each Hydor product group and their relative features and merits, the brochure also discusses the different ventilation techniques – conventional, tunnel, combination and reverse-flow, used in applications such as broiler houses and larger sheds – in order to impart as much relevant information to each potential customer. The brochure also features a ’Poultry Product Selector’ – a double-page spread that, at a glance, gives a simple overview of each group’s functions and characteristics.
The new Hydor brochure is available on tel: 01725 511422, email: or by visiting where a copy can be downloaded.
