  • Advantages

  • Water is recirculated

  • Only 10 gallons/min is added into the system at all times

  • Going to a smaller chiller system has saved us $$$$$

  • Ability to control water temperature to the Heath stacks

  • Disadvantages

  • Having to be more diligent in making sure that chemicals are discharged

  • out of the system

  • More time consuming for personnel to perform egg treatments

  • Inability to adjust individual stack temperatures
