    An optimal environment is of great importance to poultry. Especially the first days of growth creates the foundation for the animals’ further development. Research has shown that the use of infrared heating stimulates the growth of young animals. This is because of the radiant heat that warms the animals. This radiation can be compared to the heat from the sun.

    The model AP2 is mainly used in the poultry industry. The brooders are standard equipped with Stainless steel dust filter and a safety device in combination with thermocouple. We are offering the version complete with the thermostat; making your life easier.
