If Light-tight Is Your Goal, Don’t Get Air-tight as a Consequence

ITALY - Termotecnica Pericoli understands the vital importance of keeping your breeder production house dark and light tight to maximise light management programmes.

At the same time, the company recognises the importance of maintaining optimum climate management with the provision of adequate fresh air.

The vertical design of the light restricting elements or vanes in the Pericoli LTP reduces the build-up of dust/dirt without impacting air flow. However, due to surface tension and the nature of the materials, there will be a build-up over time of dust particles, which require cleaning to maintain maximum performance.

Cleaning of light restrictors is generally not easy to accomplish. If a job is too hard to accomplish, it never gets done; if it’s easy, it will get done - a factor recognised during the design of the LTP.

To access and clean both the fan and the light trap, simply lift the bottom of the unit, as the vertical elements are housed in a sturdy and innovative housing, which is hinged with a simple mechanism for ease of installation (no tools) and operation.

The double wave shape, design, structure and pitch assembly create an optimal combination of light reduction (elimination - 58,259 lux to 0.0291 lux*) with a minimal pressure drop of 10pa at an air-speed of 2.0 metres per second.

If light control and management are important to your production, then the performance of the Pericoli LTP is worthy of a closer look.
