The IPGB Borlaug Growth Chamber Facility currently consists of the following Conviron growth chambers:
|Model||# units||Shelves||Total Growth area (ft2)||Intensity (umoles/m2/s)|
|PGC Flex||11||3/2/1||57/38/19||Top lights 1,000, ea. Shelf 500|
|MTPS Flex walk-in||4||3/2/1||72/48/24||Top lights 1,000, ea. Shelf 500|
Provides top-down airflow that ensures consistent plant canopy temperatures throughout the chamber.
The standard lighting package for the BDW series chamber generates moderate to high level light intensity
and incorporates metal halide and halogen incandescent lamps.
Key Product Attributes:
Highly flexible. In its standard configuration, the chamber operates as a single-tier chamber with a counterbalanced light canopy and upward airflow.
A conversion alters the chamber’s configuration to either a double or triple tier configuration with medium light intensity and horizontal airflow.
In its standard, single-tier configuration, the PGC FLEX combines T5 fluorescent and halogen incandescent lamps spectrum with
1,125 micromoles/m2/s intensity.
The multi-tier configuration reduces this light intensity to 500 micromoles/m2/s in the 2-tier and 3-tier configurations.
|MTPS Flex SERIES:
The Flex option allows the MTPS to be converted from a tall plant/high light/single tier configuration (1,000 umoles/m2/s) to a short plant/low light/two or three-tier configuration (500 umoles/m2/s).
Incorporates both T8 fluorescent and halogen
incandescent lamps for a broad based light spectrum ideally suited for plant growth.
Lamp canopies are secured to stationary plant shelves within the chamber while an option is provided for lamp canopies to be cantilevered from the wall to allow for rolling plant carts that can roll into place between the canopies.
