During our initial discussions we listen carefully to your plans & requirements and carefully identify all the factors that will be important to you.Â We will carefully match solutions best suited to your needs which we then explain in detail and demonstrate with visits to similar sites. We explain the value of your planned investment by highlighting potential bird performance, energy efficiency and product durability.
We prepare a detailed specification for your project. This will include detailed instructions for your house builder. A schedule of works is planned and equipment logistics are organised. Equipment from all over Europe is centred on the draperDEPOT where rigorous quality checks are carried out and final assembly completed prior to batching for delivery to your site in line with your constructorâ€™s build program
Our commissioning engineer will thoroughly check everything is fully functional and conforms within our expectations. Everything is measured and checked against the specification. Sheds are smoke tested to ensure air flows are to specification. Hot water systems are checked in detail for temperature delivery, for any leaks, and rust inhibitor is introduced. Communication networks are fully tested to ensure remote monitoring is fully active. A comprehensive initial training program covering all items of equipment is conducted with both owner and mangers prior to hand-over.
Chick start temperatures are carefully measured with thermal imaging across the whole floor area. A little variety is sought by the new flock for their comfort. We usually aim for the floor to be a little cooler at 28oC, the litter at 30oC and air at 31,5oC. This variation generates a good spread and healthy activity.
Air flows and circulation patterns are important. They demonstrate thorough mixing at high level in order to achieve even uniform temperatures across the entire floor area and to avoid chilling the chicks. We smoke test every shed as part of our commissioning program.
We seek strong lamina flow through the inlets to ensure thorough circulation across the entire width of the shed.
Our growers receive as much training and support as they require.
Exhaustive attention to detail is essential when commissioning to ensure every feature of our system is functioning to our specification.
WeÂ grow with you!
