Climate Controllers





EDGE is a single platform that is versatile and intuitive, allowing it to handle all control applications, including breeding, gestation, farrowing, nursery and finishing. The unique design makes EDGE the only controller on the market that can be configured to match your operation’s specific requirements. It is also flexible enough to be adapted to new construction or existing system upgrades. Throughout your animals’ growth stages, you and EDGE are in control, managing and monitoring the ventilation, cooling, heating, feeding and watering systems.

• Monitoring & Management

• Built To Last, Built To Grow

• Easy To Setup, Easy To Operate



Truly good ventilation systems don’t just happen. Sophisticated microprocessor based climate controllers that are at the heart of each AP system must be chosen carefully and set to achieve maximum results. Cooling and heating systems need to be properly sized and located to get the most from your investment in an environmental system. These are all reasons to purchase an AP system that is totally engineered and guaranteed to perform as specified.

Our team of experienced professionals will work with your plans to produce an engineered system that comes complete with recommended placements, settings and wiring suggestions.

To be a player in today’s international marketplace the modern pork producer needs a competitive edge. The efficiency of the modern facility depends on many issues of which the efficiency and longevity of ventilation fans are a substantial part. When the design team at AP was given the challenge of developing a new fan line, three points were paramount. Performance, efficiency, and longevity all needed to be maintained while keeping the price as competitive as possible.

You will find the Performer Series ventilation fans have met and exceeded the goals set forth in this challenge. The progressive pork producer is the winner, with tremendous air output, extremely low power consumption and a warranty far beyond the competition’s. This package, combined with a very competitive price and AP's reputation for service puts you in a much better position to compete in the world marketplace.
