Indirect gas fired heater »Heat-X« Type G

Heating with no CO2-production in poultry stables – long-lasting and efficient
The »Heat-X« Type G is an indirect gas fired heater with a closed combustion system, especially designed for poul- try houses.

Increasing energy costs and legal regu- lations force farmers to use efficient heating systems with low energy con- sumptions. The »Heat-X« Type G-line fully meets there requirements.

A closed combustion system means that the combustion air is taken from the outside, and the combustion gases are transported back to the outside. As a result no CO2 and no water vapor are brought into the poultry house.

Therefore the big advantage is that the volume of the ventilated air can be strongly reduced so that energy can be saved.

Also, the closed combustion system decreases the humidity level. Consequently the feed stays drier which prevents from typical dieseases like Podo. So, the sickness and mor- tality rate decreases which leads to a higher output per bird flock.

There is no open flame with a closed combustion system so that this effects insurance costs positively.

Of course the heater is CE-certified and every single »Heat-X« Type G undergoes a final check. Electrical safety, correct emis- sion values as well as general functions will be tested within this check.

The heat exchanger
The heat exchanger is made out of S-shaped tubes, each tube is feautred with its own atmospheric gas burner that automatically sucks in the combustion air. With the atmos- pheric combustion mode the ambient air is used for the combustion and the combustion sucks in the needed amount of air autotmatically – analog to the direct combustion.

The chimney
The flue gas connection respectively the chimney port are connected to flexible ducts. These ducts allow a flexible installation of the heater. The heater can be mounted underneath the ceiling or be placed in a very handy mobile console. Flue gas tracts of up to 7 meters are possible. Short flue gas tracts outside of the building prevent from ice formation during winter time.

The »Heat-X« Type G is due to its big ope-nings easy to clean.

Israel announces creation of global seed company

Two Israeli seed producers, Nirit Seeds and TomaTech, have joined forces to create Israel’s largest vegetable seed company. This synergy will enable unique seed breeding research and development that will accelerate the company’s growth in the international seed markets.

Upon completion of the merger, the company will have more than 80 employees worldwide, including molecular biologists, breeders, agronomists, and others.
The company will improve its breeding activities in Israel, Spain, Mexico and Italy, as well as significantly expand its representation in the Netherlands and North America, with a particular focus on growing vegetables in high-tech greenhouses.

Nirit Seeds is one of the most successful internationally traded tomato and pepper seed producers, investing in the development of revolutionary genetic technologies. TomaTech is one of the leading tomato seed companies in Israel, developing premium varieties, including those resistant to the dangerous Tomato Brown Ruffle Virus (ToBRFV).

The production of crop seeds is one of the most advanced and high-tech sectors in Israel. According to the Seed Department of the Federation of Israel Chambers of Commerce, seed exports currently generate $200 million in annual revenue. There are about 25 large and medium-sized companies in the local industry.

For reference. According to market research, the global vegetable seed industry is valued at $8 billion a year and is growing at a CAGR of 8%.
