GREENHOUSE HEATING. Ecology, economy and innovation
In the greenhouse agriculture sector, there is a remarkable interest on the part of professionals in increasing the hygiene parameters of cultivated products.
Within this, the temperature and ventilation of the enclosure represents a factor to be taken into consideration for greenhouse crops. It is common to find in these farms heating systems that improve the environmental and thermal quality of the facilities.
Likewise, it is also remarkable the awareness that the sector shows with and for the natural environment, adopting environmental measures increasingly demanding and efficient to help improve the operation and the environment.
In order to respond to these two needs, IAXXON Energia has developed a specific product for greenhouses that promises to be an indispensable element for those crops that require an exhaustive control of the relative humidity inside the installation. The novelty of the IAXXON Energy System lies in the decrease of the environmental relative humidity of the greenhouse thanks to a mixed system between the system’s own fans and fully automated axial fans, providing the control of humidity and temperature inside the greenhouse.
The installations developed by IAXXON Energía are adapted to each greenhouse as a tailor-made suit, since we implement our technology according to the customer’s needs and the size of the farm.
How IAXXON greenhouses work
IAXXON greenhouses is the only product capable of offering you, in the same installation, heating, ventilation and hot water. The operation is based on the interaction of the installation, which consists of two types of fans: axial and centrifugal.
The function of the axial fans is to control the absolute humidity present in the greenhouse, introducing or expelling air.
The centrifugal fans are incorporated into the circuit of the solar collectors, thus achieving the introduction of heated air thanks to the thermal jump provided by the IAXXON patented collectors, reducing the relative humidity inside the greenhouse, as well as a homogeneous diffusion of air inside the enclosure.
In the same way, the IAXXON Energy System provides homogeneous air extraction through its ducts, avoiding the difference between the center and the sides of the greenhouse. In addition to the above, the system provides hot water to your farm, thanks to the Water-Air exchanger that we have developed, which can be stored in tanks that will provide hot water to the operation.
Advantages of IAXXON greenhouse heating:
- Efficient and cost-effective heating.
- Constant hot and dry air.
- Decrease of the environmental humidity at the same time that an increase of temperature is provided.
- Forced ventilation included in the installation.
- Reduction of heat loss by reducing condensation in the greenhouse enclosure.
- The controlled environmental humidity reduces the effects of fungal diseases.
- The thermal stability of the crops is improved and the evapotranspiration is compensated.
- Powered by clean and renewable sources.
- Possibility of integration to other conventional systems.
- Minimum maintenance costs and low life cycle costs.
