Unveiling the Art and Science of Agriculture Ventilation: How our Ventilation Experts Design Ventilation Systems

Ventilation is not just about air movement; it’s about creating an environment where productivity thrives and efficiency reigns unsurpassable. At J&D Manufacturing, we are committed to pushing the boundaries of ventilation technology, delivering efficient solutions that meet the unique needs of our customers. From initial consultation to final installation, our process is driven by a relentless pursuit of excellence.

Understanding Your Needs:

Before we embark on the journey of designing your ventilation system, we take the time to truly understand your requirements. Our consultation process begins with a series of in-depth questions aimed at uncovering the specific goals and challenges of your facility. Some key considerations include:

  • New construction or retrofit?
  • Dimensions of the barn or building.
  • Location and orientation of the structure.
  • Desired ventilation system type (e.g., tunnel, cross, hybrid).
  • Number and type of animals occupying the space – each animal gives off body heat we need to account for.
  • Required air changes per hour to manage heat and humidity.
  • Desired airflow velocity and distribution.
  • Potential obstructions or equipment hindering airflow.
  • Additional features such as circulation fans, cooling mechanisms, and smart controls.
  • Material and drive preferences for optimal performance and longevity.
  • Energy efficiency goals and preferences.

Armed with a comprehensive understanding of your needs, our team of ventilation experts gets to work. We leverage a combination of scientific principles, cutting-edge technology, and years of industry and observable experience to craft a customized ventilation solution that will exceed your expectations.

We know what our fans produce because they have been tested in our AMCA accredited air test chamber or by BESS Lab. Our designs are not guesswork; they are meticulously calculated and validated through advanced airflow simulations. If performance data on a fan is not available, that should raise some concerns. How will the ventilation designer know how many fans are needed to get the desired velocity if the fan’s CFM at the correct static pressure is unknown? Using state-of-the-art software, we model the airflow dynamics within your facility, identifying potential dead spots and optimizing airflow distribution.

Every product we manufacture undergoes rigorous testing to ensure maximum performance and reliability. Whether it’s our fans, control systems, or other equipment, you can trust that it has been engineered to deliver unparalleled results.

At J&D Manufacturing, we design, manufacture, and sell all the way through. We pride ourselves on consistency, quality, and reliability at every step. This is vital because it grants us complete control over any adjustments or enhancements to the components within our product line. We maintain an inventory of parts for legacy products, which addresses a common challenge faced by companies that do not handle their manufacturing. In such cases, frequent changes in products and components can lead to a lack of available replacements when issues arise. Don’t get hung out to dry – we will have what you need.

Ventilation design is both an art and a science, and at J&D Manufacturing, we excel at both. We have a team of ventilation experts on-site to help you with everything you need. We use ventilation calculators, the AMCA accredited air test chamber, blueprints, spreadsheets, simulations, and more. We live for this stuff. Let us do the work for you and provide you with a comprehensive, tailored ventilation solution that is right for you. Contact us today!
