Pullet House Fan/Light Trap Comparison Worksheet (v4.3beta - August 2013)

Pullet House Fan/Light Trap Comparison Worksheet (v4.3beta - August 2013)

  • This excel spreadsheet allows the user to determine how the amount and type of fan/inlet light traps affect the air moving capacity of the exhaust fans and therefore air speed in a light-controlled, tunnel ventilated pullet house.  This replaces V4.2 which could produce inaccurate results if the General Shelters light trap was used.
  • Input:

    • Number of fans
    • Air moving capacity (cfm) of  the fan you want to examine @ static pressures from 0.00" to 0.25" 
    • Fan condition
    • Type and amount of tunnel inlet light trap
    • Type and amount of tunnel fan light trap
    • Type and amount of evaporative cooing pad
    • House dimensions
  • Output:

    • Total static pressure tunnel fans will be working against
    • Estimated static pressure along length of the house
    • Amount of air moved by each tunnel fan.
    • Average air speed
