Chore-Time's CUBO™ Heat Mixer equalizes the house temperature by circulating hot air from the ceiling back to the floor. Its built-in heat exchanger can also add heat to the house. Click Here for a video on how the CUBO™ Heat Mixer works.
The CUBO™ Heat Mixer performs three functions:
• It draws in hot air from house's ceiling and expels it near the floor, resulting in tempered air blowing horizontally just above the birds and in constantly circulating air. The Heat Mixer is suspended and adjustable in height.
• When additional heat is needed for bird comfort, hot water flows through the CUBO Unit's heat exchanger, and warmed air is blown out at bird level, where it enters the circulating air stream.
• During minimum ventilation, the Heat Mixer's air stream lifts cooler air from the sidewall inlets and moves it together with warm air from along the ceiling into the Heat Mixer's inlet. The air is mixed, and the fresh, tempered air is distributed to the birds.
The CUBO™ Heat Mixer's centrifugal fan easily moves air horizontally up to 12 meters in all directions. This contributes to a more uniform temperature throughout the house.
CUBO™ Heat Mixer:
Significant saving of energy costs:
• Hot air near the ceiling is distributed/mixed with the house air near the floor.
• Temperature difference in the house of < 2ºC (as measured in test houses).
• Less heat loss due to more uniform temperature in the house.
• Less minimum ventilation needed since the hot water heater is not in the bird area.
• Improves airflow during minimum ventilation.
Better climate for the birds:
• Dryer litter - heater does not introduce moisture to the house environment
• The air speed at bird level remains less than 0,2m/sec. - comfortable for the birds
• More even temperature for bird comfort
