Application of ammonia gas sensor in breeding industry
With the development of large-scale, intensive, and modernized aquaculture industry, the aquaculture environment has become a prominent problem. Data show that in high-density livestock and poultry breeding areas, the excessive release of ammonia in agricultural production leads to direct or indirect destruction of the ecological environment.

Ammonia is a toxic, colorless, water-soluble, and strongly irritating gas. Generally speaking, the ammonia gas in the farm generally comes from two sources. One is from the digestion and feces of the poultry and animals. The nitrogen compounds in these substances are easily decomposed by urease to form ammonia; the other is It comes from the feces, feed residues and bedding accumulated in the pen. If the humidity and temperature in the pen are high, it will accelerate the production of ammonia.

Ammonia has high water solubility, so it is often adsorbed on the skin and mucous membranes of pigs and conjunctiva, causing irritation and inflammation, reducing production performance and resistance. Ammonia entering the respiratory tract can cause symptoms such as coughing, bronchitis and pulmonary edema, difficulty breathing, suffocation, and even organ necrosis, causing respiratory disorders, increasing the susceptibility to airborne diseases, and also other diseases, reducing the body’s exposure Disease resistance. Ammonia can also affect the growth and development of pigs, and has a negative impact on pregnancy, childbirth and other reproductive links.

In recent years, domestic farms are facing continuous expansion of the scale of breeding, but it is difficult to reduce the stocking density, facing environmental pressure (a large amount of feces and waste water and odor urgently need to be properly discharged) and frequent respiratory diseases. It is getting more and more difficult. Relying on vaccines cannot solve major disease problems. At present, many experts and pig farm owners are paying more and more attention to the improvement of the breeding environment. At the same time, they have a clearer understanding of the threat of harmful gases such as ammonia. It is the large and medium-sized pig farms that are indeed facing these urgent problems that need to be solved. In the face of this problem, an ammonia sensor that can be used in the breeding farm is introduced.

Ammonia gas sensor is a universal ammonia gas component detection sensor on the market. It can monitor the concentration of ammonia gas online for 24 hours. Once the concentration limit is exceeded, it will immediately send an alarm via SMS, phone, email, etc. The administrator takes certain measures, or links the fan to exhaust the ammonia gas.

The ammonia sensor RS-NH3-*-2-* adopts the imported first-line big brand acquisition chip, which has the characteristics of rapid response and strong anti-interference ability. It has passed our unique compensation algorithm and multi-stage Standard gas calibration also has the characteristics of long life, high precision, high repeatability and high stability. The measurement accuracy is high, within ±2% FS, and the repeatability can reach within 2%. Optional high-quality OLED display, the value can be viewed directly on site, and can be displayed clearly at night. It adopts wall-mounted waterproof shell, which is easy to install and has a high degree of protection, which can be used in harsh on-site environments.

Ammonia gas sensors are available in various ranges of 0~50PPM, 0~100PPM, 0~500PPM. It is generally recommended to use ammonia sensors with a range of 0-100ppm in poultry farming.

In a farm, if the environment is high temperature and humidity for a long time, not only the concentration of ammonia will be high, but also high concentrations of hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and other gases will be easily generated. Therefore, the farm is monitoring the concentration of ammonia At the same time, other gas sensors (such as ammonia, hydrogen, carbon monoxide, oxygen, hydrogen sulfide, methane, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, ozone, carbon dioxide) can also be selected to monitor the environment of the farm, from daily management, feed formulation, and internal Comprehensive considerations such as metabolic control, timely measures to dilute harmful gases, reduce the concentration of harmful gases in the pig house, reduce the occurrence of diseases, and obtain greater economic benefits.
