Greenhouse protection is an intricate and fundamentally required part of protecting plants and grower yields. Many growers opt to cover everything in their greenhouse(s) with special polyethylene film to avoid any stall in growth, and protect plants from weather conditions and climate. This is a critical task to ensure plants grow to their full potential, and to maintain greenhouse maintenance integrity.
In order to provide proper insulation and strength to the greenhouse, you must have a method to control your polyethylene protection. By this, we mean you want to guard against over inflation to avoid stretching and pin hole leaks, but also prevent under inflation to avoid reduced insulation and damage from wind movement. We use a poly inflation controller to adjust and insulate air levels. Proper air levels ensure that the air being provided promotes a consistent moisture, temperature and insulation value. The goal is to achieve uniformity from one end of the greenhouse to the other. This is important for proper pressurization in your greenhouse. Additionally, you will want to draw air from the outside, as using air inside can often contain chemical compounds and excessive heat/moisture.
With the rising cost of heating fuel, the cost of poly and the labor to install it, our Poly Inflation Controller will pay for itself by lowering your heating cost and making sure you get the full life out of your poly.
Our poly inflation controller regulates airflow for twin-film greenhouse blowers to achieve proper pressure between film layers. This is important as using our controller will extend the life of your film coverings. Moreover, our controller maintains the proper pressure, prevents damage from under inflation and offers more stability in windy environments. It also increases the insulation value by inflating only as needed instead of constantly blowing cold air in between the poly layers. With the rising cost of heating fuel, the cost of poly and the labor to install it, our Poly Inflation Controller will pay for itself by lowering your heating cost and making sure you get the full life out of your poly.
There is no need to purchase an additional manometer, as this poly inflation controller has a digital manometer built in. Features also include a temperature gauge located in the inlet air intake. You will have freedom with this controller as you can set it to run on manual mode in order to hold a specific pressure, or you can adjust the pressure using an auto mode based on temperature and wind.
Supporting plant growth with a healthy greenhouse climate is essential. Our poly inflation controller will help maintain the optimal pressure, humidity and control you need to support healthy yields and provide a peace of mind.
