BEE COOL VENTILATOR - VERSUS - NATURAL CONVECTION

 

    RE: FAN PERFORMANCE OF BEE COOL HIVE VENTILATOR

   PURPOSE: PRODUCT TESTING

  

   STATEMENT: “I estimate the air flow of the Bee Cool fan to be approximately 24

   cubic feet per minute at 12” static pressure.”

   SUMMARY: Natural convection in the hive with 2 hive bodies and 4 supers,

   decreases as the outside air temperature increases (When it is most needed)! At 70

   degrees Fahrenheit, natural convection changes air less than 1 (.83) time per

   minute! This decreases to zero times at 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

   Bee Cool hive ventilators will change the air in the hive 7 times per minute if hive

   temperature is 70 degrees and above and there is enough UV rays for the solar panel.

 

   CLOSING: As the outside air reaches the same temperature of the hive natural 

   convection will cease. The bees will assign workers that will fan the hive, and will

   begin to cluster on the front of the hive.

   Dependable ventilation with Bee Cool ensures that the workers are in the fields                  

   collecting nectar.
