Gas Brooder with Infrared Functions

59,999.00

Gas Brooder with Infrared Functions helps provide a source of heat for floor-reared chicks. They utilize natural gas or methane, connected to a heating element hung 3 to 5 feet above the chick/pen floor.

  1. This product works well with brooder guards (often in a diameter of 5 which can hold about 200 chicks).
  2. Thus, the brooder guard is raised in the middle of the circle.
  3. The maximum heat source from this device can serve up to 1000 or more brooding birds
  4. Recommended gas use is 0.2kg/hr for 1000 capacity brooder and 0.4kg/hr for the 2000 birds capacity.
  5. This brooder does not come with a thermostat, thus it works via manual adjustment of the gas-flow/know and height level to control heat intensity. Kindly click here to buy the digital temperature and humidity meter which can be adapted as well.
  6. The 2000 capacity is based on pre-order and could take 3 weeks to deliver.

Newly hatched chicks are delicate creatures, and their survival hinges on maintaining a consistent, comfortable temperature. Traditional gas brooders, while effective, can have drawbacks like uneven heat distribution, air drafts, and potential burns. Enter the gas brooder with infrared functions, a game-changer in poultry farming.

Benefits of Infrared Gas Brooders:

  • Targeted warmth: Infrared radiation penetrates deep into the chicks’ bodies, providing gentle, localized heat that mimics natural brooding.
  • Improved chick health: Consistent, draft-free warmth fosters optimal development, leading to stronger chicks with better feed conversion and higher survival rates.
  • Energy efficiency: Infrared technology uses less gas compared to conventional brooders, translating to lower operating costs and reduced environmental impact.
  • Precise control: Adjustable heat settings allow you to tailor the temperature to the chicks’ specific needs as they grow.
  • Safer environment: The enclosed burner and infrared radiation minimize the risk of burns and fire hazards.

Functions of a Gas Brooder with Infrared:

  • Ceramic infrared emitter: This element converts gas energy into radiant heat, effectively warming the chicks without open flames.
  • Adjustable burner: Control the gas flow to regulate the heat intensity and maintain the desired temperature.
  • Pilot light: Ensures easy ignition and continuous operation.
  • Automatic thermostat: Maintains a pre-set temperature, eliminating the need for manual adjustments.
  • Hanging system: Allows for easy installation and height adjustment to accommodate different chick sizes.

Investing in the Well-being of Your Flock

A gas brooder with infrared functions is a worthwhile investment for any poultry farmer seeking to optimize chick growth and survival. By providing gentle, targeted warmth, you create a nurturing environment that promotes healthy development and maximizes your return on investment.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Gas Brooders with Infrared Functions

What are the drawbacks of traditional gas brooders?

Traditional gas brooders, while functional, can have issues with:

  • Uneven heat distribution: Chicks huddled near the heat source can get too hot, while those further away might be too cold.
  • Air drafts: Drafts can cause chills and hinder chick development.
  • Potential burns: Chicks can come into direct contact with the heat source and get burned.

How do infrared gas brooders address these issues?

Infrared gas brooders offer several advantages:

  • Targeted warmth: Infrared heat penetrates chicks’ bodies directly, mimicking the warmth of a mother hen and providing a more natural brooding experience.
  • Improved chick health: Consistent warmth with minimal drafts promotes optimal chick development, leading to stronger chicks with better feed conversion and higher survival rates.
  • Energy efficiency: Infrared technology uses less gas than conventional brooders, saving you money on operation costs and reducing your environmental impact.
  • Precise control: Adjustable thermostats and burners allow you to tailor the temperature precisely to chicks’ needs as they grow.
  • Safer environment: Enclosed burners and infrared radiation minimize the risk of burns and fire hazards for your chicks.

How does a gas brooder with infrared functions work?

These brooders use a combination of features to provide safe and efficient brooding:

  • Ceramic infrared emitter: Converts gas energy into radiant heat, warming chicks without open flames.
  • Adjustable burner: Controls gas flow to regulate heat intensity and maintain the desired temperature.
  • Pilot light: Ensures easy ignition and continuous operation.
  • Automatic thermostat: Maintains a pre-set temperature, eliminating the need for constant manual adjustments.
  • Hanging system: Allows for easy installation and height adjustment as chicks grow.

Are infrared gas brooders expensive?

While the initial cost might be slightly higher than traditional brooders, the benefits can outweigh the expense. Infrared gas brooders offer:

  • Improved chick survival rates
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Lower operating costs over time
  • Healthier chicks and potentially higher productivity

Are infrared gas brooders difficult to use?

No, these brooders are designed for ease of use:

  • They typically come with clear instructions and are relatively simple to set up.
  • Adjustable thermostats allow for effortless temperature control.
  • The hanging system makes installation and height adjustments straightforward.
