SMART PRODUCTS FOR WATER USE
When working with hydroponic other soilless growing systems, precision and accuracy are key in obtaining the maximum quality and yield. Priva Nutri-Line fertilizer dosing systems offer the right solution fprecision fertigation, giving you the right tools to get the most out of your crop.
Priva Nutri-Line systems are compatible with all types of irrigation systems and suitable fboth protected and outdocrops. The systems are based on several mixing principles, all offering you precision and control. From entry-level to advanced: you choose the Priva fertilizer dosing system which suits your crops and business. The Priva Nutri-Line systems realize a stable pH and EC of your irrigation water. The right pH level is essential fthe optimal intake of nutrients fyour crops. This prevents deficiencies and diseases and provides excellent plant quality. The right amount of water and nutrients at the right time means the valuable nutrients are being used as effectively as possible. This is realized by our advanced controls and our robust and reliable water solutions.
You can control the Nutri-Line system via one central process computer. This way, you can link all your systems in your greenhouse: from water management, to climate control, to energy management even management information systems. Of course, it is also possible to use the Nutri-Line functions as a stand-alone unit.
1.1.NutriFit: The Priva NutriFit first doses the fertilizers into a mixing tank. This system can reach capacities up to 25 m3/hour. The number of dosing channels is flexible, and can be configured based on your desires.
1.2.NutriFlex: The Priva NutriFlex does the same as the NutriFit, but is able to go up to 100 m3/hour. This system can also automatically blend low doses of trace elements and cleaning agents by using separate low-volume dosing channels.
1.3.Nutri Jet: The NutriJet is able to dose directly into a closed mixing chamber with water flow capacities of up to 80 m3/hour with its inline-system. Due to smart design, the NutriJet doesn’t need a filling pump, which makes this system more efficient. With the Nutrijet Bypass, you can increase this capacity to up to 140 m3/hour. This system is also able to automatically blend low doses of trace elements and cleaning agents by using separate low-volume dosing channels.
1.4.Nutri Bir: The Nutri One does not use a mixing chamber tank. The fertilizers are mixed in the mainline. It has up to 4 dosing channels and covers main line capacities up to 120 m3 per hour.
The Priva Vialux-Line disinfects water with UV-C light, destroying all existing pathogens like fungi, bacteria and viruses. The system can be applied f(pre-)treatment of water, recycled drain and discharge water. UV disinfection allows continuous recirculation of irrigation water in a safe way. As a result, expensive fertilizers are not flushed down the drain and do not contaminate the environment. All Priva Vialux systems are fully automated and protected in many ways: against lamp failure, overheating, dry run, surges, lows in the power network and more.Through the reuse of water, you can realize substantial savings on water and fertilizers. In most situations, the Priva Vialux has a payback time of less than three years.
2.1.M-Line: The Priva Vialux M-Line series is based on mid-pressure UV. The modular system can be customized to meet your company’s needs.
2.2.HD-UV: The Priva Vialux HD-UV series is based on high pressure UV. It has a single UV-reactor, with full control. A system with over 20 years of experience in high-tech horticulture.
2.3.E-Line: The Priva Vialux E-Line can be used fthe treatment of discharge water and monitors the volume that has to be discharged. This module can be adjusted to almost every Vialux.
Water and fertilizers make your crops grow, but you also need a stable pH level in your irrigation water. The Priva Neutralizer makes sure you get a stable pH. This way, your plants can absorb the fertilizers more effectively, which results in better crop growth. Moreover, the vitality and taste of your crops will improve significantly.
Removal of bicarbonate
An unstable pH-level in the irrigation water, created by high levels of bicarbonate, has a negative impact on the uptake of nutrients by the plant. The Priva Neutralizer makes sure you get a stable pH by removing bicarbonate from all kinds of water. This way, your crop is able to absorbs minerals more efficiently. The reduction of bicarbonate also makes your drippers less susceptible fany kind of blockage.
How it works
How does the Priva Neutralizer remove the bicarbonate from the water? It combines acidification and aeration to reduce the bicarbonate concentration to a desired maximum value of 0.3 - 0.5 mmol/l. This makes the pH stable and makes it easier fthe plant to absorb zinc, boron, iron, and copper. These minerals improve the growth and taste of the crops.
4.Priva Moisture Balance Module
The precise control of water and fertilizers is essential in crop production to lift the quality throughout the chain at a higher level. Our Moisture Balance Module ensures precise and timely irrigation and dosing of fertilizers. This optimal irrigation start solution contributes a great deal to reaching a higher production and a better crop quality.
- Higher production and better crop quality
- Optimal balance between oxygen and moisture level in substrate results in healthy root development
- Environmentally sustainable
- The module results in less use of resources like water and fertilizers
- Control a larger growing area
- The module simplifies the irrigation management fmultiple varieties breeds
- Wireless sensoring
- Analyze the moisture level of the substrate wirelessly
Optimal irrigation strategy
The Moisture Balance Module makes sure that you can start the irrigation at the right moment and dose the right amount of water and fertilizers. This module determines the optimal irrigation start strategy, based on three important influences: the quantity of water evaporated, the desired amount of drain water and the water content of the substrate. This way, your crop can develop itself optimally because of the precise and timely addition of water and fertilizers.
A higher crop quality
The Moisture Balance Module automatically adjusts the irrigation control in line with the growing conditions, the condition of the plant, and the condition of the substrate. The Moisture Balance Module makes sure that you dose the right amount of water and fertilizer at the right time. The result: a higher crop quality. In addition to this, the module results in less water and less fertilizer usage. This is a very large benefit, especially in areas where water is scarce, water quality is poor, water is expensive.
The Moisture Balance Module requires sensors to execute the optimal irrigation. It’s possible to connect these sensors wirelessly to the Priva system. The module works with either the Priva GroScale weighing scale combined with a drain senswith moisture sensors. Both sensors analyze the moisture level of the substrate. The data is used by the Moisture Balance Module to control water and fertilizer dosing and timing.
