Cannabis Air Conditioning Systems
Whether it is Cannabis Sativa or Indica, it needs special air-conditioning systems to be used in medicine. Climatic conditions must be handled sensitively, whether in covered or indoor growing. Depending on the climatic conditions of the growing region and the growing country, special air conditioning systems are developed. Below, we will talk about how the air-conditioning equipment Keyway-Timfog makes and uses are specific to cannabis.
• Plastic Greenhouse Fog
Fogging is the product from which Timfog takes its name. When this product is used on the cannabis plant, various adjustments are made to prevent the greenhouse exhaust fans and the vents where the outside air is drawn in from being exposed to different climatic conditions. For example, the nozzle frequency, line spacing, and angle of the nozzles on the tube are changed. In this way, one tries to eliminate the temperature difference caused by the radiation gradient of the sun in the greenhouse and achieve a homogeneous course.
• Semi-Closed Greenhouse - Completely Covered Greenhouse GAHU [Greenhouse Air Handling Unit]
GAHU [Greenhouse Air Handling Unit] can be connected to the climate corridor in Semi-Enclosed Greenhouse structures, or GAHU can operate as a stand-alone unit integrated into the curtain to form a fully enclosed greenhouse. GAHU is designed for maximum energy efficiency due to its operating principle and its unique algorithm. However, it cannot reduce the work to be done. Therefore, combining cooling and dehumidification with curtains may be possible to limit energy gain during the day. This, of course, would require much more energy than evaporative cooling during the day [fog or fan and pillow]. However, it also allows for climate control that combines humidity and temperature control that is completely disconnected from the outside air and almost wholly reduces the use of fungicides and pesticides. In short, it is possible to size the GAHU in two stages.
Since the first solution has lower energy consumption than the second one, it will come first in initial investment and operating costs. However, CO2 cannot be supplied and requires constant circulation of outdoor air for evaporative cooling during the day, allowing various biological factors present in the atmosphere and undesirable in production to be transported via the air. If you use GAHU entirely, the greenhouse is also suitable for some kind of indoor cultivation.
• Completely Closed Environment [Indoor] GAHU [Greenhouse Air Handling Unit]
GAHU is indisputably the only indispensable solution for “indoor” cultivation in a completely closed environment. With its VPD-based algorithm that adapts according to the reactions of the plant, equipped with special filtering and allowing the supply of fresh air and CO2 or responding to the lighting regime, GAHU is the only device that meets the needs not only of cannabis but also of anyone who wants to grow indoors. GAHU differs from conventional air conditioners in its structure, prioritizing the plant’s needs for years during the development phase on site. Conventional air conditioners do not have a control system that understands the requirements of plants. In nature, for centuries, there have been no plants that have a constant temperature and relative humidity throughout the year. Therefore, GAHU supports the plant with the necessary conditions, just as in nature, adapting to the changing conditions of the plant.
The purpose of the existence of GAHU is to remove the pressure of climate adaptation on the producer. Farmers working with GAHU can focus on other variables by keeping the climate stable and finding ways to manage nutrition and other conditions better to improve production in each new cycle.
