02. Introduction EXAFAN is positioned today as a world leader in the development of automation systems for the poultry sector. Our aim is to create the optimal conditions, both for the housing of the animals and for the management of the farms.

bilateral relationship, which will finally result in the achievement of the project.

This excellent status is achieved by combining climate control, automation of feeding and the remaining parameters that influence the development of the farm activity, without forgetting a very important part: obtaining and recording all the data relating to the breeding of the animals, which will allow us to dispose of valuable information to take the most suitable decisions.

A suitable climate, a system of intelligent feeding, precise observation of the animal behaviour, as well as their most suitable comfort, create a synergy that will result in healthier animals, while providing better farming yields.

The analysis of the data obtained with our control systems, together with long experience in the interpretation of data, allow us to obtain the information necessary to carry out the design of the poultry housing. In its projects, EXAFAN supplies the most advanced technology, with the aim of its customers obtaining a high level of production on their farms, with attention to the smallest detail so that the animals have a habitat with conditions that are similar to, or even better than, the natural one. The nature of our products is technical, just as the providing of services and customer attention has to do with the personal side. EXAFAN works with the customer on the basis of collaboration, taking their needs and suggestions as a source of inspiration and improvement, and generating a close

EXAFAN offers you total control of your farms, as well as a global solution to your needs.

Therefore, for us, feeding, ambient temperature and housing form a single entity, which translates into total Management of the farm, providing, in turn, highly valuable and constant information of priceless value for your business. You will be able to control, react, direct, execute and decide, always maintaining complete control of your farm, from inside or from outside. Innovation Our company’s policy of continuous improvement, together with the seeking and obtaining of products and solutions that best adapt to the new market needs have required continuous effort by EXAFAN in R+D+i, the basis for our innovative spirit and source of our origin.

04. Energy Efficiency


A Whole Farming World inside


Energy Efficiency

Efficiency is the future; the future is EXAFAN

ginning of each project:

The poultry sector is immersed in a continuous transformation, motivated, on the one hand, by the application of new health and environmental protection regulation; and on the other hand, by the restructuring of the sector itself with the purpose of adapting to the levels of competitiveness that allow them to lead the market.

• The climatic conditions of the region.

Making farms more competitive is also our objective, for which EXAFAN is working to obtain the maximum automation, equipping them with greater levels of mechanization. At EXAFAN we are convinced that there is no better and more direct benefit than saving. Another of the important aspects for reaching a high degree of competitiveness is energy efficiency: savings of energy to reduce energy costs and promote economic sustainability, increasing effectiveness and maximizing profit.

• The local particularities of the zone. • The environmental needs inside the housing according to species, age and physiological condition of the poultry. • The cost-efficiency relation of the investments in the elements and machines comprising the poultry installation. Thus, we achieve energy efficiency designing a balance combination of rules for construction and equipment of the material units that will mainly comprise the project, such as: insulation, ventilation, heating, cooling and lighting. In this way, we ensure the correct integration of the different systems without the operation of any of them supposing a waste of energy.

To obtain a higher energy efficiency index, a series of factors that are directly involved must be taken into account, which EXAFAN will analyze at the be-


05. Types of houses

One of the main lines of business of EXAFAN is the poultry sector where we aim to accompany breeders in seeking greater profitability in their business, always keeping in mind the well-being of their animals. Other products obtained are those produced by other livestock orientations, from which meat (turkeys, ducks, quail and partridges) and eggs (quail) are commercialized.

Depending on the type of product desired, the technical characteristics of the installations change considerably, as well as the number of cycles and the operation of the farms. In this way, depending on the type of animal to be bred, we will have to define the installation.

06.Construction Characteristics

Modern agriculture and livestock farming activity must, in order to achieve its objectives, know how to perfectly conjugate the following factors: Installations, equipment, genetics, and human team. One of the main concerns of EXAFAN is that the installations provide the animals with the maximum climatic comfort that allows us to reach the desired level of production at the same time as a comfortable environment so that the human team can carry out their work. In the design and dimensioning of the compartments built by EXAFAN factors are taken into account that are essential to achieve good breeding results, that is, the suitable dimensioning of the same is essential to obtain adequate air speeds in order to ventilate, cool and heat, likewise planning the location of the necessary machines and systems for this purpose. Likewise, it is very important to not forget that the design and dimensioning of the compartments must include, in a very rigorous manner, the interior housing of elements such as nest boxes, laying batteries, feeders, feed distribution systems, watering troughs, etc. which are directly linked to the structure of the house, as they depend on them not only in their fastening, but also in their installation and form for daily operation.

One aspect we cannot ignore due to its importance is insulation. EXAFAN insists strongly on the area of insulation, both in the enclosures and in the roof, as not only the comfort of the animals will depend on it, but also the energy savings that will make the production unit efficient. It is necessary to have a preliminary study that will allow us to make necessary housing in the enclosure so that the air inlets are installed at the suitable height and distance to maintain the perfectly atmosphere perfectly renewed; Likewise, in order for such important elements as water and feed to be effectively placed, it will be necessary to have a good design of the structure that plans for the suspension systems as well as the distribution and the appropriate measurements so that when the feeders and watering troughs are installed the animals access them easily, eliminating the risk of stress that is involved when having to compete for its access.

Everything is perfectly calculated; no detail is left to chance, more than 25 years of experience constructing livestock buildings allow us to have studied and controlled even the most insignificant details, applying this criteria for the choice of factors such as the pitch of the roof, the nature and shape of the metal structure, the dimensions, the choice of the materials, the insulation, etc.

Design of the house and its climate control

The direction of the air currents, the flow volume and its speed are essential parameters to be taken into account in order to ventilate efficiently, always aiming for the air currents to strike the animal as little as possible, as this would affect its well-being considerably;

In the same way, the choice of a slight slope limits the air volumes of the interior of the shed, something very important to be taken into account with “tunnel� type ventilations.

The system of aerial distribution of the feed is the ideal system for the rebreeding of pullets, which

Rebreeding of pullet have restricted feeding (they only eat once a day and in a small amounts), because distributing the feed uniformly over the entire surface of the shed the poultry access the feed without competition, the poultry breed more uniformly and the mortality levels decrease. The number of animals per square metre is greater due to not having obstructions on the floor, which improves the animal well-being considerably.
