Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil by using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent. It is an area which requires a very carefully controlled environment. Humidification, dehumidification, or both may be required to maintain optimum growing conditions.
In our most recent install Humidity Solutions supplied a cold water high pressure system from our partner Airtec for an application in the north west of England. Previously, stand-alone small capacity units had been forbearing in this industry, but the advantages of using an Airtec system soon became apparent.
The Airtec system offers the advantages of being able to control multiple areas off one control panel which in turn reduces maintenance and simplifies installation. Installation is further simplified using easy to install flexible hose and push fit connections. Control is via a sensor per zone with a different humidity level able to be set for each area if desired.
Mobile dehumidifiers are also often used in this environment with Humidity Solutions able to select from a wide range of desiccant or refrigerant dehumidifiers alongside the mobile equipment.
Similar processes where humidity control is beneficial are:
- Micro herbs
- Root Hydration
- Medicinal Cannabis Humidification
- Medicinal Marijuana Humidification
- Ripening Rooms
