The filter to prevent introduction of the PRRS virus
Helping you maintain healthy stock is important to us. As such, our experts have collaborated with climate technology specialists and other experienced experts to develop a fresh air filter which reliably prevents PRRS viruses from entering pig houses through fresh air.
While you may have the most stringent bio-security measures, PRRS can be transmitted through the air. This poses high risks for those in regions with a high livestock density. AirProTec can help protect your barns from this invisible predator, with efficient fresh air filtration that significantly reduces the introduction of the PRRS virus, by up to 95%!
- Introduction of PRRS virus via fresh air can be reduced by up to 95%
- Livestock not infected with PRRS show better biological performance
- Less secondary infections in piglet rearing and pig finishing reduce required medication
- Different AirProTec models are available, depending on the conditions on the farm and the type of fresh air distribution system
- If requested, fresh air can be cooled simultaneously with the APT 20000 or APT 10000
- Specially developed filter cassettes are easy to replace
- Low maintenance requirements
How AirProTec Works
AirProTec is a mechanical filtration system and installed in front of a corresponding fresh air inlet. Thanks to this dual filtration method, the AirProTec is is able to filter dust particles which may be contaminated with the virus. The filtered fresh air is then pushed into the house by means of a fan is also known as positive pressure ventilation. Apart from PRRS viruses clinging to the dust particles, other airborne aerosols, including influenza viruses and mycoplasmas, are also filtered efficiently from the fresh air. This considerably reduces the risk of infections and reinfections of the PRRS virus. AirProTec is available in two versions: for central or decentralized distribution of air.
What is PRRS?
PRRS (Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome) is a highly infectious virus, found in pigs, that affects reproduction and respiration. It is responsible for some of the highest economic losses in global pig production to date. Breeding companies, multipliers and centers for artificial insemination must make sure that they maintain a negative PRRS status. A PRRS infection among your herd can be extremely devastating, not only economically, but to your animals as well.
