Environmental Sensors & Controls for Poultry Houses
Ventilation can sometimes challenge even the best poultry growers. However, it is necessary to maintain both air quality and litter (a mixture of poultry excreta, spilled feed, feathers, and material used as bedding) conditions. Dwyer offers the latest sensor and control technology to help maintain proper environments. By choosing reliable, repeatable, and sustainable solutions, it’s possible to prevent and plan for potential unwanted and detrimental factors that can affect bird health and growth. Moisture (relative humidity / RH), carbon dioxide (CO2), and carbon monoxide (CO) are three major issues most growers will face in the broiler house coming out of the winter season and daily practices throughout the grow process.

Monitor CO2 in Schools with the CDT-S Transmitters!
Dwyer recently released its new -S option for the Series CDT carbon dioxide and temperature transmitters. Built upon Dwyer’s standard carbon dioxide transmitter, the -S option has a front-facing LED that illuminates when the CO2 level exceeds 1,100 PPM.
This new feature addresses concerns raised by legislation, including California Assembly Bill 841 and Nevada Assembly Bill 257. California’s Assembly Bill 841 was signed into law in 2020, while Nevada’s Assembly Bill 257 was approved in 2021. These bills proposed several provisions governing indoor air quality in the public school system, including that each classroom will be equipped with a carbon dioxide monitor that: Continue reading “Monitor CO2 in Schools with the CDT-S Transmitters!”
