Cooling Systems

Hemisphere® Mixing Fan (48″, 72″)

VAL-CO® is proud to introduce the latest in minimum ventilation technology – the Hemisphere® Mixing Fan. The innovative design of the Hemisphere reduces temperature variations dramatically… increasing profits dramatically. Users are seeing 2° or less in temperature variations throughout pullet and layer houses. This fan is ideal for all types of layer and poultry housing, as it moves high volumes of air with no draft on the birds. The Hemisphere also distributes heat evenly to help reduce fuel bills. The Hemisphere Mixing Fan is available in 48″ and 72″ models.

HyperMAX™ Galvanized Fans (36″, 48″, 54″)

The HyperMAX galvanized fan line delivers high performance and maximum value.  Using new technology in computer aided design, the orifice, blade, cone and motor combinations optimize the use of the motor’s power curve. With higher CFM and CFM per Watt per fan, producers need fewer fans per house to achieve the desired air moving capacity. The use of high quality galvanized steel provides superior durability and long life. The motor mount and drive assembly utilize a rugged box frame design that increases motor life while providing quieter operation. The HyperMAX galvanized fans offer a broad array of options including different drives, aluminum or PVC shutter and single- or three-phase motor with various operating voltages, depending on the model selected.

PolAIR EZ-Cool

VAL-CO® is proud to introduce the PolAIR EZCool water return trough and evaporative pad support system which has the latest in evaporative pad cooling technology. This proprietary system is manufactured by VAL-CO and uses a unique, raised ribbed pad tray, molded directly into the trough which keeps the pad elevated above the drain holes allowing for 100% drainage with no spill-over from the tray. The design of PolAIR EZ-Cool trough greatly reduces installation and maintenance time with its unique quick-connect coupler and full 8” cleanout at the end of the trough.

PolAIR High Pressure Fog Cooling

Engineered and custom designed using proprietary, Psychrometric Software, the PolAIR High Pressure Fog Cooling System generates sub-micron drops which flash evaporation upon contact with the air, lowering the temperature of the house. The PolAIR High Pressure Fog System is configured to your house with little or no structural modifications.

Heating Systems

Heat-Rite™ Brooders

The Glow Radiant Brooder from VAL-CO® uses infrared heating technology to quickly and efficiently warm the floor and chicks rather than wasting heat on the air that rises above the brooding area.

Modulating Tube Heaters

Heat-Rite™ VM Brooders. The Radiant Tube Heater For Brooders That Maximizes Fuel Savings.

Heat-Rite™ U-Tube

Heat-Rite U-Tube Low Intensity Infrared Heater. Effective and Field-Proven Infrared Brooder Heaters.

Heat-Rite™ VST Tube Heater

Radiant Tube Heating Offers A Convenient And Effective Alternative To Standard Brooders.

HI/LOW Gas Panel

This panel ensures the most economical and efficient use of gas and allows flexibility in controlling the desired animal comfort zone. In the case of power failure, rest easy knowing you have the ability to manually control temperature until power is restored.

M3 & M2 Infrared Heaters

Infrared heating from VAL-CO® has its advantages. Unlike other forms of heating that use significant amounts of energy to heat an entire building, infrared heat allows you to concentrate the heat directly to the animals and the floor. This will provide you with lower fuel costs and provide your animals with their own comfort zone created by the patterns of heat projected from the infrared heater.

The M3 & M2 are constructed of stainless steel and can withstand high pressure washouts and reasonable abuse. With no moving parts, the simple, straight-forward design of Gasolec’s M3 & M2 Infrared Heaters lead to low maintenance and easy service. Likewise, both of these heaters are available in propane and natural gas versions. The advantages of the M3 & M2 clearly make it a preferred choice in the animal confinement industry.

M8 & M5 Infrared Heaters

The M8 & M5 are constructed of stainless steel and can withstand high pressure washouts and reasonable abuse. With no moving parts, the simple, straight-forward design of Gasolec’s M8 & M5 Infrared Heaters lead to low maintenance and easy service. Likewise, both of these heaters are available in propane and natural gas versions. The advantages of the M8 & M5 clearly make it a preferred choice in the animal confinement industry.
