Configured with the Flex option, an MTPS plant growth room becomes a highly adaptable environment for research programs requiring a range of plant heights and lighting intensities. The Flex option allows the MTPS to be converted from a tall plant/high light/single tier configuration to a short plant/low light/two or three-tier configuration. The flexible design means there is no need for special trades or services to adjust shelf height and airflow as research needs change. Simple plug-and-play design provides researchers with easily adjustable and removable cantilevered canopies.
The PGW40 equips the researcher with a walk-in environment accessible from two large doors on the front of the chamber. This model is ideally suited for research involving taller classified plants. The extended growth height ensures that most plants can be grown to full maturity within a moderate to high light regime. Also available with the PGW40 are low-temp options for running the chamber at temperatures below the standard 4˚C. A defrost option is also available which prevents a temperature rise during the defrost cycle.
The PGC FLEX offers the ultimate in flexibility. In its standard configuration, the chamber operates as a single-tier highlight growth chamber with a counterbalanced light canopy and upward airflow. A simple conversion alters the chamber’s configuration to either a double or triple tier configuration with medium light intensity and horizontal airflow.
The GR series of walk-in rooms, available in six standard sizes, is a highly economical platform for providing a controlled environment in a walk-in configuration. This series of chamber offers low to moderate level light intensities using multiple light canopies. The temperature range is narrower than on other Conviron walk-in chambers which affords greater energy efficiency and economy. The multi-lamp-canopy configuration enables researchers to have several experiments running simultaneously with plants at varying levels of maturity.
Conviron’s DR Series dew rooms are uniquely designed for testing in a high (100% RH) humidity, or ‘saturated’ or ‘mist’, environment. A typical application in plant pathology, for example, is the testing of plants infected with disease where the high humidity promotes disease propagation. Dew rooms provide horizontal airflow with air discharge via a perforated side wall plenum. Lighting on the standard configuration is for visibility purposes only.
The S10H plant growth chamber offers wide–range humidity control. Plant pathology, entomology, and plant physiology are prime examples of the type of research and teaching programs that are suitable with the S10H and that can benefit from its humidity control capabilities. The S10H accommodates tall plants, with its generous 59” (1500mm) growth height, and offers 10ft2 (0.93m2) of growth area. Barriered and ventilated canopies reduce the load on the refrigeration system thereby lowering operating costs.
The PGR15 offers 16 ft2 (1.5 m2) of growth area and 57 inches (1450 mm) of growth height making it suitable for a range of applications including the growth of many tall plant species to full maturity. Standard is a counter balanced light canopy system. Shipped fully assembled, the PGR15 fits through standard doorways. Please consult Conviron with your particular application and area of research and we will provide you with an overview of the available options.
The PGC20 offers an exceptional growth-area-to-footprint ratio. With the refrigeration and electrical systems entirely top-mounted, the PGC20 provides 20 ft2 (1.9 mm2) of growth area in a footprint of less than 25 ft2 (2.4 m2). Using a counter-balanced light canopy, the growth height extends to a maximum of 59” (1500 mm) making the PGC20 an ideal candidate for research involving tall plant species to full maturity. Please consult Conviron regarding specific requirements.
The E8 is a highly customizable plant growth chamber capable of achieving extreme conditions of temperature, lighting levels, and humidity. The product is well suited for research applications requiring a high level of control in a relatively small footprint. In addition to customizable environmental control parameters, options are also available for growth height, gas levels, and a variety of refrigeration configurations. The E8 offers a minimum growth height of 46” (1180mm) in an 8ft2 (0.74m2) growth area.
The BDW series walk-in chamber is based on a modular platform available in increments of 40 ft2 (3.7 m2). These units offer a precise chamber environment typical of research involving C4 high-light plants grown to maturity. Unique to this product is the top-down airflow pattern which ensures consistent plant canopy temperatures throughout the chamber.
