Controlled environment agriculture (CEA) is an energy-intensive sector; HVAC is the second-highest energy use in most CEA facilities, depending on location, facility type, and crops grown.
Manage external influences effectively and create a stable climate to maximize crop growth and lower energy costs.
Totally control and create an optimal climate for crop growth in an energy-efficient manner to cut costs.
CEA facilities can range from automated glasshouses with computer controls for watering, lighting and ventilation to fully environmentally controlled enclosed closed loop systems.
Ventilation is critical in maintaining an optimal growing environment and improves overall efficiency. It is essential for both temperature, humidity and CO2 management.
Poor air circulation reduces plant activity and can lead to problems with diseases. If carbon dioxide levels are not maintained, plant growth is affected.
Whereas passive ventilation might be the most cost-effective solution, active ventilation or a fully controlled environment ensures precision control, enabling an ideal climate all year around.
The target is to maximize plant well-being and growth while reducing the marginal cost of energy usage.
An air-to-air heat exchanger reduces the load on air conditioning by saving energy on cooling and dehumidification, increasing system efficiency, and lowering operational costs.
There are two types of air-to-air heat exchangers, rotary and plate heat exchangers.
All our heat exchangers are made of aluminum, which has excellent properties such as efficient heat transfer, dehumidification, and an extraordinarily long life span.
Heatex high-performance air-to-air heat exchangers offer numerous design variables and options, enabling perfect fit and performance in every air handling unit (AHU).
Specialized HVAC systems with Heatex heat exchangers protect workers, boost plant growth, and reduce operational costs.
Model H2 is a lightweight crossflow heat exchanger with slim frames and outstanding efficiency.
Model H has a broad set of options and a particularly low pressure drop.
Both models are highly customizable in terms of sizing and well height.
