Ron Van Bakel designed, built and marketed a successful heat exchanger for barns. His innovative design has overcome conventional challenges of heat-exchangers and is being successfully demonstrated on a number of barns in the province. The low maintenance system has definite benefits for use in the swine sector. It helps to lower supplemental heating costs and ensures that minimum ventilation rates in barns are maintained.
