Efficient climate control
Every grower wants to efficiently control the climate inside the greenhouse in order to achieve optimum quality and production output. The heating system is sometimes referred to as the greenhouse’s blood circulation, because the main objective of a greenhouse is to maintain a suitable temperature 24 hours per day. A properly regulated temperature ensures that the crops grow and that quality can be achieved. Controlling the temperature by means of the heating system makes it possible to meet production requirements. There are many climate-control options, so customised advice is key to achieving the right balance between quality, price and energy consumption.
Besides heat, an installation can also generate CO2. CO2 promotes the growth of crops, thus optimally using the installation. Debets Schalke provides tailor-made systems with a clear balance between quality, costs and returns.
Effective heating & CO2 management can be effectively achieved with a buffer tank. A buffer tank, also known as a heat storage tank, is primarily used for short term heat storage and smoothing out energy peaks, resulting in energy and cost savings. Buffer tanks can be supplied in a horizontal as well as a vertical configuration.
The buffer tanks are designed so that the CO2 from the boiler and/or the CHP plant can be used. Without a robust CO2 management system, some of the lighting’s impact will be lost. It is therefore important to maintain the concentration of CO2 within the greenhouse at the proper level. Lighting/sunlight combined with high CO2 concentrations has a tremendous impact on the growth of crops, which is directly reflected in the production output. For economic reasons, every grower aims to minimise the emission of CO2, fertilisers, heat, light and pesticides. Any loss of auxiliary materials costs money.
Besides a broad product range of standard buffer tanks, Debets Schalke also supplies customised work.
