Cooling Hydroponics Systems

Cooling hydroponics systems in greenhouses, outdoors and growing indoors for optimal root health and plant growth becomes an important consideration during warmer months and when looking to increase cooling efficiency and climate control in CEA (Closed Environmental Agriculture) growing. There is a strong relationship between the amount of oxygen that will be available to plant roots, nutrient absorption and prospects for serious root diseases when it comes to maintaining optimal temperatures in your hydroponic reservoir and directly in the rhizospere (root zone).

 

For optimal results, incorporate the tips we just shared with cooling hydroponics systems via water chillers:

Stainless steel (below) or titanium coils are available for cooling hydroponics systems and reservoirs.  A solenoid valve with a temperature sensor equipped thermostat can open or close a steady flow of very cold water through the cooling coil placed in the system Epi Center or a central reservoir-or even in each grow module in a daisy chain. Once the temperature of the reservoir reaches the optimal set point, the flow stops via probe and thermostat control to solenoid valve.  Multiple reservoirs may be linked from the same cold water supply and capture from a central cold water reservoir because the cold water never mixes with the solution in the reservoir.  The stainless steel cooling coil prevents corrosion in the saline and acidic nature of hydroponics solutions.
