Smart Sense® Heating System

The Guardian with Smart Sense™, L.B. White's Auto Control Pig Heater

Smart Sense™ - Automatic Variable Rate Heat
U.S. Patent No. 9,328,937

Smart Sense™ is an auto control, technologically-advanced swine facility heating solution.

This innovative heating technology eliminates the inefficiency of conventional on/off heaters that require manual adjustments and always run at 100% Btu ouput. In comparison, Smart Sense™ heaters are automatically managed through the facility control or L.B. White SmartBox control and operate at firing rates as low as 25% of maximum Btu output.

Smart Sense™ generates only the amount of heat required to reach, maintain, and hold a desired temperature by automatically modulating Btu output—a proprietary technology engineered for L.B. White forced air heaters and radiant-heat brooders.

  • Automates building temperature management
  • Saves up to 35% in fuel costs
  • Maintains consistent room temperature

Smart Sense™ Manages Pig Building Room Temperature Automatically

Smart Sense™ automatically provides heat at only the rate required to reach a set point, and then maintains that temperature. This technology has been field tested across the upper Midwest with results that reflect significant increases in fuel-cost savings.

Actual Field Test Results for L.B. White Forced Air Heaters and Brooders

L.B. White Guardian Forced Air Heaters with Smart Sense™

Guardian™ heaters with Smart Sense™ provide an automatic variable-rate control, compared to manual control in today’s standard Guardian heaters. The Smart Sense™ upgrade allows the heater to run longer at lower firing rates and become part of the circulation system. This results in a much more consistent room temperature.

Available Smart Sense™ configurations:

  • 15,000 to 60,000 Btu/h
  • 25,000 to 100,000 Btu/h
  • 65,000 to 250,000 Btu/h

Ignition types:

  • Spark Ignition
  • Hot Surface Ignition

Ignition Control Enclosure

  • All corners and seams are sealed with silicone
  • Liquid tight / air tight "pass throughs" are used for wiring entrances and exits
  • All terminations have 'flags'

Certifications:

  • CSA

Only L.B. White Guardian heaters are capable of operating at firing rates as low as 25% of max Btu/h while maintaining acceptable carbon monoxide levels and ignition characteristics.

L.B. White Infraconic Radiant Brooder Heaters and Smart Sense™

L.B. White Smart Sense™ technology provides the ability to set and manage temperatures at pig level, independently of the ambient room temperature. Gain control of the pig occupied zone with Smart Sense™ versus 3-stage or hi-lo control panels that are not controlled by precision-based technology.

  • Both standard manual and spark ignition I-17 brooders function with Smart Sense™
  • Fires at 10% of max btu output (17,100 btu/h).
  • Requires sensor mounting kits for existing and new installations
  • Operates with an existing 0-10 vdc control or with the SmartBox™ controller

I-17 Brooders with Smart Sense™ auto managed heat control

The L.B. White Smart Sense™ Sensor is a critical component in our variable-rate heat technology. Our sensors are not restricted by a shield or isolator, and are less sensitive to wire length or gauge. Combined with proprietary control logic, the sensor is always locked into position by a bracket to achieve precise results based on suggested protocols and a desired swine pattern.

More Info About Smart Sense™ Heating System for Pig Buildings

Smart Sense™ automatic variable rate heat technology for Pig Buildings can be used in multiple pig production phases, including: farrowing, nursery, wean-to-finish, and finishing applications.
