All of our greenhouses offer evaporative cooling capabilities. We utilize both fog and cooling-pad systems.
FogCo Cooling Systems
Responds to outside climate conditions. When the outside climate is not favorable for passive cooling using ridge ventilation, these systems will engage via your environmental control.
Suitable for extreme weather. Evaporative cooling systems are made for use during extreme conditions in gutter-connect and free-standing greenhouses.
Lowers greenhouse temperature. When used in tandem with shade systems, evaporative cooling pads can decrease air temperatures in a greenhouse up to 27 degrees.
Increases CO2 absorption.
Plants gather carbon needed for growth in the form of carbon dioxide through the leaves; controlling the plants pores through the use of a properly designed misting system can allow for higher levels of CO2 absorption, and therefore more productive and disease free crops.
Evaporative Cooling Pads
Evaporative Cooling Pad Systems are used in conjunction with MagFan during periods of extreme heat to provide a productive environment for your crops to thrive in. When large quantities of air are pulled through evaporative cooling pads that are saturated with water, a substantial cooling effect is realized due to the evaporation of that water. Used in tandem with MagFan, a temperature reduction of 10-25 degrees is commonplace.
