Growing plants indoors with the absence of soil and sunlight is possible with a hydroponics growing system. A grow lamp simulates sunlight, while a mineral rich water solution provides all the nutrients that plants need to grow and photosynthesise.
The lamps used in hydroponics systems, as with any other lamp, are liable to overheat if not used and cared for correctly. The excess heat generated by lamps can cause damage to your plants, and could even lead to a fire starting in some circumstances. It’s vital that you ventilate the area adequately in order to prevent hazards from occurring.
Here at DuctingOnline we supply ventilation kits for hydroponics,among other applications. The kit that you see here has a number of key features and specifications, which include the following:
Hydroponics 100dia Euro Ducting Kit
This hydroponics ducting kit comes equipped with the following parts:
100dia Carbon Filter 250mm long
100dia Euro Inline Fan
100dia Aluminium foil flex x 2.5mtrs
AFDT - Silver Tape 50mm
Measuring at 100mm 4” in diameter and 250mm in length, the premium activated carbon filter has a lifespan of up to 18 months under normal operating conditions. It includes a pre-filter, and the extra virgin carbon pellets allow for a better airflow. The filter also has a 0.1 second contact time, meaning that all odours are removed fully.
The ducting tube is made from strong yet flexible aluminium foil, which is multi-ply and puncture resistant. The tube is fully operational in temperatures ranging from-30°C to 140°C. It is manufactured in accordance with EN131080 and BS 476 which ensures that it is flame resistant and helps to stop the spread of flames and smoke in the event of a fire.
The Euro inline fan is fitted with a circular duct which is home to axial fans that move the air within the ducts. With and airflow rate of m3/h 100 and a motor rotation of 2650, the fan has an acoustic pressure of dB (A) 40. It runs on a power supply of V/H2 230/50 and 15 watts, and comes boxed but requires a UK plug.
