Description: The indoor environment conditions of mechanically ventilated piglet houses depend on the performance of exhaust fans. Owing to fan performance which has a great impact on the comfort of animals and pollutants emission, appropriate selection of fans should be properly considered. However, in-situ fan performance has reduced compared to design fan performance because of the various pressure loss factors. This study attempted to evaluate pressure loss factors by measuring airflow rate of fans and static pressure in piglet house. The experiments were conducted in a standard Korean pig house with a combined ceiling slot inlet, side window inlet, side exhaust fan, chimney exhaust fan, and so on. The pressure loss factors were evaluated Using the fan law and orifice theory. Analysis of the result showed that in-situ fan performance was reduced by 7 ~ 35 % compared to the design fan performance. Furthermore, the comparison of side and chimney exhaust fans showed that the side exhaust fans had a higher 20% airflow rate due to duct friction loss and aerodynamic difference. On the other hand, pressure losses due to inlet were different from inlet types and inlet opening size. Because the pressure losses depend on inlet and outlet type, location, size, and so on, those characteristics should be considered for the optimal ventilation design.
