Ventmax 1200 Acid Air Scrubber

The importance of ammonia and odour reduction

VentMax technology has huge implications for broiler and layer farms across the UK.  In areas where there is a high density of poultry farming, or farms are in close proximity to dwellings, it can often be difficult to obtain permission to expand operations.

With the Environment Agency (EA) and Natural Resources Wales (NRW) imposing tighter controls over ammonia emissions, farm owners experience planning application delays and sometimes rejections.

VentMax can help reduce ammonia and odour emissions to help support the case for planning consent.

Air scrubbing and extraction

VentMax units are fitted with dust filters and an advanced ammonia air scrubber system. These treat and clean the used air before it leaves the shed and is discharged to the atmosphere.
