Industry-first Compact Design Nests Inside the Dual Draft Tray and Yields Space Savings for Crop Production and Increased Revenue
KELSEYVILLE, Calif., (March 8, 2022) – Integrated Hydro Solutions Inc., a product development company specializing in system improvement for the vertical cannabis industry, today announced the commercial availability of the Dual Draft Zero-Clearance Airbox. Vertical farm operators and cultivators who wish to eliminate the degrading effects of microclimates and poor drainage will benefit from the compact Zero-Clearance Airbox which is designed specifically for retrofits of existing grow facilities and space-constrained vertical farms.
Leigh Zalusky, CTO and Founder of Integrated Hydro Solutions, shares the intent behind the advanced design. “Cultivators and farmers seek airflow and drainage options that they can easily install into existing rack footprints and vertical farm facilities. The Dual Draft Zero-Clearance Airbox is the only integrated solution that enables indoor growers to benefit from improved airflow without sacrificing plant canopy.”
The benefits of the Zero-Clearance Airbox include:
- Patent Pending airbox nests inside the Dual Draft Tray for optimal space dedicated to plant canopy
- Improves gross square foot to canopy ratio by eliminating external airboxes at end of racks
- Suitable for compact grow rooms, including new builds and retrofits of existing rack systems
- System rated up to 1470 CFM for consistent airflow over longer runs
- 0-10V EC controllable brushless motors allow for precise airflow control
- Washable inlet filters remove contaminants for easy maintenance
- Energy-efficient 220V single phase input rated at 1.45A per motor
Mark Doherty, advisor and partner for Integrated Hydro Solutions, comments on the Dual Draft Zero-Clearance Airbox, “Operators of vertical farms understand the need for improved airflow to manage microclimates. However, many lack the available space required by externally mounted airflow solutions. The Zero-Clearance Airbox integrates the under-canopy and over-canopy Dual Draft solution without sacrificing valuable canopy for equipment.”
