The new Dol 53 sensor, from Big Dutchman, is the first ammonia sensor of its kind. Able to continuously read ammonia and provide real-time data, the Dol 53 is revolutionary

The Dol 53 has been designed especially to be used in animal houses. Created with robust electrochemical sensors, the Dol 53 can withstand the environment inside an animal house far above and beyond any previous ammonia sensors on the market. Even in the presence of fluctuating temperatures, humidity, methane, CO2, and hydrogen sulphide, the Dol 53 provides clear and continuous readings for ammonia levels in the barn.

Until now, the continuous measurement of ammonia concentrations in animal houses was difficult. Humidity in the air, dust, and the noxious aggressive ammonia gas itself would quickly impair the delicate electrochemical sensors previously available.

After exposure to the animal house environment, these sensors would stop functioning effectively and be unable to offer useful data. The Dol 53 has been tested in the laboratory and inside animal houses and has proven time after time to stand up to this harsh environment where other sensors could not.

The Dol 53 was designed to integrate seamlessly into already functioning animal houses; it uses a 0-10 Volt interface like other conventional sensors and can be installed directly into the animal house environment. Once connected in the barn the Dol 53 will begin transmitting continuous and real-time readings of ammonia levels. The Dol 53 can be used in conjunction with Big Dutchman’s new climate computer 307pro to automatically manage ammonia levels in the animal house

0-10 Volt interface like other conventional sensors and can be installed directly into the animal house environment. Once connected in the barn the Dol 53 will begin transmitting continuous and real-time readings of ammonia levels. The Dol 53 can be used in conjunction with Big Dutchman’s new climate computer 307pro to automatically manage ammonia levels in the animal house.

Even without upgrading to an automated computer, farmers can use the Dol 53 to monitor their ammonia levels and determine for themselves the best ammonia management methods. By experimenting with temperature and air circulation farmers can, as never before, see the results of these methods clearly, in real-time, without relying on rudimentary environmental indicators, such as smell.

New uses and applications for this product are conceivable in all areas where constant ammonia monitoring is useful and necessary. The Dol 53 is a product that will drive future innovations as more computers are developed to integrate ammonia management into their controls and other useful applications are discovered.
