In water processing units the water temperature is one of the main factors of influencing average growth rate of the fish.
Environmental control system must be able to control the temperature of the water, so the performance growth of thermophilic species (other than the sturgeon and trout) to be optimal in order to justify the cost of operation.
The water is heated directly by efficient heat exchangers by using electric resistances, electric or gas boilers, heat pumps.
Space heating, may also be taken into consideration, but is not as effective as other methods of heating the water.
Use of waste heat from the pumps and aerators can be used to heat water.
Thermostatic control systems are available for all equipment of heating or cooling.
There are also a number of other natural sources of energy that can be used to control the water temperature, such as solar heating, geothermal water and salt ponds….
