We at ARM Buildings offer a ‘MOT’ service for buildings to help pig farmers run their controlled-environment houses more efficiently. An annual routine check will let farmers know that their piggeries—particularly finishing houses– are performing to optimum levels.

This service will include: Calibration settings for fans and inlets, building performance, Dicam training, building settings and pressure test and air speed measurement.

Inlet calibration can be undertaken along with checking of Dicam drivers; if electrical work or fan replacement is required then advice can be given.

A fee of £300 will cover the visit and advice. If you would like to be included in this planned annual performance calibration please contact Tim Miller on 07 976 701 144
