Rotecna has created a line of hydraulic heated panels that prevent temperature fluctuations, thereby creating and maintaining a comfortable temperature for all stages of swine life including farrowing, weaning and wean to finish.
The panels are 1.2m tall and come in three widths: 400mm, 500mm and 600 mm. Farmers can personalise hogs pens based on their needs by using the panels in various configurations.
The hydraulic panels make use of water's ability to retain and accumulate heat. As the heating circuit heats up water in the panels, thermal inertia is generated. This inertia keeps the surface of the panels at a constant and even temperature, thereby preventing drastic temperature changes.
The heating panels are robust, easy to install and are compatible with all heating circuits. There is also lower thermal insulation and it features non-slip tread.
Besides being easy to install, another feature of the panels is the four-part "out-dirt" panel support that helps to maintain hygiene levels by preventing dirt from accumulating. In addition, the internal tank is easy to fill through the wide upper hole and the "non-air" system prevents air pockets from forming inside it.
