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 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® automatic variable rate heat for hog confinement buildings now works with these leading environmental controls:
May work with similar systems that have a 0-10V control
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.
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:
25,000 to 100,000 Btu/h
65,000 to 250,000 Btu/h
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'
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 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
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.
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.
