MISTING FOR HORSES IN STUD FARMS, BOXES, STABLES, BARNS, VANS
FOGGING FOR HORSES
ABAISSEMENT DE LA TEMPERATURE AMBIANTE
Horses are often kept in barns that may be substantially warmer than the outside temperature. High temperatures also increase the risk of heat stress. And they often lead to potentially fatal conditions in horses: heat stroke and anhidrosis.
In short, our misting systems and misting fans eliminate this threat in the stables. Fogging ensures a healthy and comfortable environment for horses. Note that more than half of the energy that is used for a horse’s muscular activity is converted into heat. When the horse is working in the warmer months and is in a building where the temperature remains higher than outside, then there is a danger. Indeed, heat exhaustion and stroke can strike even the hardiest of horses. One of the first symptoms observed is a loss of muscle control.
Similarly, when the horse is hot, it sweats and naturally regulates its temperature using a process that is very similar to the way our foggers work. This is called adiabatic evaporative cooling (heat exchange of sweat with warm air).
In fact, sweating represents about 85% of the horse’s capacity to regulate its temperature, whereas breathing only represents 15%.
In fact, to try to cool its body, the horse will inhale even more air until it risks hyperventilating. The hotter the air breathed in, the more danger the horse is in. He therefore needs to breathe a refreshed atmosphere at a much lower temperature than his body temperature.
This is why our fogger for horse stalls, stud farms and riding schools acts directly on lowering the temperature without wetting.
The misting system will have the additional function of knocking down dust and other airborne particles. The high-pressure nozzle bars spray filtered water in the form of a fine, heavy fog that knocks the dust to the ground.
We also design ready-to-use misting systems for horse trailers.
In summary, our high pressure fogger will :
- to air-condition studs, stables, boxes and riding arenas by misting
- prevent dust from escaping
- to hunt flying insects
- to improve the living conditions of horses
- to increase the performance of horses
FOGGING TO REFRESH AND SANITISE BOXES AND STABLES
As horses sweat profusely in hot weather, they should be hosed down regularly. The heat knife should also be used to remove water and perspiration from the horse’s coat to avoid the risk of catching a cold or attracting flies and mosquitoes.
Equestrian foggers cool the living and care areas of horses. This prevents heat stroke, dehydration due to abnormal sweating and the discomfort of a dry and dusty atmosphere.
In this respect, the high-pressure fogging system regularly diffuses a fine mist that maintains a refreshing atmosphere without wetting and without dust or insects.
From now on, with the misting in the stalls, grooming remains a privileged moment, pleasant for the horse and its keeper.
FOGGERS TO PROTECT HORSES FROM HEMATOPHAGOUS INSECTS
FOGGER TO DISINFECT
Summer dermatitis is a disease of the horse, caused by an allergy to the bites of certain insects. As its name indicates, it usually coincides with summer and affects the animal’s skin, creating itching. Also when it reappears year after year, it is said to be “recurrent”.
Finally, high pressure misting does not wet and refreshes, creating an area free of biting insects and airborne dust.
