Cooling and Humidification
At Forever Flowering we approach cooling in two stages:
FOGGING VS. WET WALLS
Wet Walls are created by dispersing fresh and recirculated water onto pads placed on the air intake walls of your greenhouse. As air enters through the wet wall, it moistens and cools. When this cool, moist air travels across your greenhouse, it begins to warm and dry as it moves further from its entry point, decreasing the environmental consistency needed to grow top shelf flowers
Forever Flowering is committed to creating efficient and sustainable greenhouse solutions with the lowest carbon footprint. To this end, our fogging systems are connected to fully charged, low pressure piping that allows the fog to be dispersed immediately upon being triggered. This reduces the transition time between cooling and ventilation cycles.
A Case Study:
In an attempt to determine how much water he was consuming per day, he installed a water flow meter on the inlet of his pad vent system. He measured just under 40,000 gallons of water being used each day in his wet wall cooling system.
That equates to one gallon of water per square foot of canopy to cool his greenhouse. We determined that, considering his environmental location, using a fogging system would enable the farmer to decrease his water usage by approx. 25% per day. From 40,000 gallons per day to 29,000 gallons per day.
Health Of Your Plants:
Fogging systems can be adjusted as needed. If a certain part of your greenhouse needs less fog due to a shadowing obstruction, or if an area needs more fog, these situations can be easily addressed and reconciled. Less than ideal environmental conditions encourage molds, mildews, pests, and diseases within your cultivation space.
