The WSS-6 Sprinkler Controller utilizes the latest microprocessor technology specifically designed for poultry applications.

As birds age, aggressive cooling is required in times of extreme heat.  When used in cooling and activity mode, the new Weeden Sprinkler controller acts as the “brains” managing the duration and frequency of sprinkling, starting at the age desired by the grower or integrator.

With the incorporation of heat sensors, the need for re-programming for temperature changes is eliminated.

The Weeden Sprinkler System is the only sprinkler system to offer:

  • Automatic turn on/off depending on the age of the bird
  • Transition from activity promotion or dust control to cooling mode based on barn temperature

Kevin Weeden, President of Weeden Environments says “its unique concept of promoting activity during the onset of heat stress and then cooling down during extreme heat stress makes it a critical tool for all growers used alone or in tandem with other cooling systems. The Weeden Sprinkler System can also address the needs of several other industries such as hog and dairy.”
