Ammonia sensor is a key control point for aquaculture profitability
Livestock and poultry farming is the major emission of ammonia gas, and these ammonia gas react with the oxidation products of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides to generate ammonium nitrate and ammonium sulfate, which are an important source of PM2.5. Ammonia gas comes from the feces and urine excreted by livestock and poultry. If the emission is unchecked, it will cause serious harm to the environment. Therefore, it must be recycled and reused, and the biomass in the feces and urine should be consumed as much as possible to reduce environmental risks.
Harmful gases such as ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, etc. produced in farms not only affect the health of livestock and poultry, but also have a significant impact on the human environment, especially ammonia. Therefore, the harm and pollution of ammonia gas in livestock and poultry production should be further paid attention to, establish a systematic and scientific standard testing technology for ammonia gas in livestock and poultry houses, carry out monitoring of ammonia gas emissions in livestock and poultry houses, and master the ammonia pollution. It provides important technical support for energy saving, emission reduction and efficient production. Winshen Technology is an expert in the development and production of ammonia sensor,H2S sensor,CO2 sensor.
After ammonia gas enters the blood, it will reduce the amount of dissolved oxygen in the blood and reduce the immunity of livestock and poultry. Long-term exposure to ammonia concentration of 10-15 mg/kg will significantly reduce the stress immunity of animals.
The effect of ammonia gas on chickens
When the ammonia concentration in the chicken house reaches 20ppm for 6 weeks, it will cause congestion and edema of the chicken's lungs, reduce the chicken's appetite and the egg production rate; when it reaches 50ppm, it will cause the chicken's throat edema within a few days, necrotizing bronchitis, pulmonary hemorrhage, decreased respiratory rate and death; 80 ppm at 2 months decrease laying rate by 90% and increases mortality. When it reaches 100 ppm, the mortality rate increases considerably. The ammonia concentration in the house should be kept below 20ppm.
The effect of ammonia gas on pigs
High concentrations of ammonia can stimulate the intestinal mucosa. The detoxification process of these ammonia is a highly energy-intensive process, and the energy used by animals for growth and production is correspondingly reduced, thereby affecting the growth performance. When the environmental ammonia gas reaches 50ppm, the animal weight gain rate decreases 12%, decreases 30% at 80ppm. The daily gain of piglets will decrease with the increase of NH3 concentration, while the feed weight ratio will increase with the increase of NH3 concentration, and other diseases could also be caused. The national pollution-free breeding standard stipulates that the ammonia concentration in the pig house is no more than 25mg/m3. Therefore, monitoring ammonia emissions with ammonia sensor have become a key control point for the profitability of livestock breeding.
Integrated sensor livestock breeding detection system collection layer solution
The livestock breeding IoT system is mainly composed of the collection layer, the transmission layer, the control layer and the application layer.
How to perceive the changes in livestock growth environment for the first time?
Mainly through the sensors of the collection layer, the Internet of Things in livestock breeding is to form a monitoring network with a large number of sensors, such as CO2 sensor, ammonia sensor, H2S sensor, temperature and humidity sensor are installed in the farm to realize online environmental monitoring. The transmission layer mainly includes wireless transmission terminals, which transmit the data of the collection layer to the upper computer platform. The main control layer is temperature control, humidity control, ventilation control, light control, as well as regular feeding, water feeding, dung removal, etc. The control equipment is linked to control ventilation, which can discharge dirty air in time and continuously absorb fresh air. At the same time,considering the impact on the temperature and humidity in the farm, the system will open ventilation when the temperature is high in winter, and open ventilation in cool night or morning of summer. The application layer is the user monitoring platform, which can remotely monitor the environmental conditions in each farm. Farmers can set thresholds on the intelligent breeding platform based on their experience. When the collected environmental data exceeds the threshold, the system can automatically alarm, and use the set alarm methods (platform alarm, mobile phone SMS alarm, etc.).In this way, managers can find problems in time and accurately locate the livestock and poultry individuals that have problems.
In addition, the intelligent breeding platform can also realize the intelligentization of environmental adjustment. When the environment is abnormal, the platform can link the control equipment, and automatically control the infrared lights, fans, wet curtains, etc. according to the set parameters. Make the breeding management more accurate, efficient and easy.
Carrying out the promotion and application of Internet of Things technology in the field of livestock breeding is an important means to achieve intelligent control, scientific management, information services, and full traceability of the production and operation process. The application of CO2 sensor, ammonia sensor, H2S sensor, temperature and humidity sensor etc. is very important to improve resource utilization rate and labor productivity, increase product output, quality and safety and farmers' income.
