Equipment

Environmental Controls

Environmental controls are essential to managing and monitoring any advanced horticultural project. With these controls you have the ability to monitor and maintain temperature, humidity, CO2, light levels, and virtually every aspect of the growing environment. A variety of sensors provide the systems with constant updates on the conditions and software can provide data logging so you can monitor and maintain records of each crop. Alarms are available to provide system notifications in the event any equipment malfunctions and you are at risk of losing crops. Environmental control systems vary in complexity and prices reflect capability. Finding a system that matches the needs and the budget of our customers is our specialty.

We offer the following brands of environmental control technology:

Argus is an automated control systems pioneer with over 30 years of leadership and innovation in control technology. They were among the first to use computers for integrating the control of greenhouse environments and irrigation systems. Today their systems are used in horticulture and biotechnology research facilities, universities, aquaculture and aquaponics, and many other custom control applications at sites throughout the world. Their software, Titan 900, together with their Titan controllers provide a powerful, integrated solution for managing your entire horticultural facility—all from your central command center, networked PC or mobile devices. Argus also offers a mobile app called Argus Live that allows you to view and manage your operation from anywhere, providing you with a live view of your operation and full control of your systems.

The Priva history started more than 55 years ago, when Cor van der Valk and Jan Prins started their business on the Kijckerweg in De Lier, The Netherlands. In 1959, the family business Priva began importing hot-air heaters for greenhouse horticulture under the name Valk en Prins. This ‘Hylo-salamander’ was an unbridled success: it was the first step in controlling the climate within greenhouses.

In 1977, Priva introduced its first climate computer for the horticulture industry. This was an enormous step forward in the field of process management. It was the first climate computer to combine control of the climate, energy and water dosing. In 1983, Priva started in the RAI with a simple building management system, based on the knowledge and products with which Priva made its name in the horticulture industry. Today, Priva is a leader in the Dutch building controls market. Priva products are used to manage the indoor environments of one in three commercial buildings in the Netherlands – and Priva’s presence in the international building control market is growing rapidly!

Fertigation

Fertigation is the injection of fertilizers, soil amendments and other water-soluble products into an irrigation system. By automating the process, facilities can save thousands a year on labor costs and ensure that crops are receiving the correct dosing of concentrates every application. Many facilities see a return on investment within a few years at most and within a year in many installations.

Argus Multi-Feed injectors, including the Multi-Feed RM, feature some of the most advanced capabilities of any nutrient control equipment including full single-element dosing options. The injectors are capable of ‘on-the-fly’ delivery of multiple stock concentrates regardless of the system flow rate.

With a Multi-Feed injector, you can use the same dosing equipment to deliver dozens of different recipes. You can also modify the feed concentration and chemistry to suit the current conditions. Fully integrated with the comprehensive irrigation and fertigation capabilities of the Argus Titan system, Multi-Feed systems enable you to simply ‘dial-in’ a precision feeding program for every crop.

The Priva Vialux-Line stands for affordable water disinfection with UV light for any horticulture company. With UV disinfection, significant improvements can be realized in regards to disease control and efficient water use. Discharge water can be treated safely. The Vialux Line is easy to operate, offers clear insight and is ready for the future. The systems are certified and provide 99.9% disinfection and at least 95% degradation of crop protection agents.

Healthy water for an optimal cultivation
The Priva Vialux-Line UV disinfection systems destroy all existing organisms such as fungi, bacteria and viruses, but also crop protection agents like Admire and Trinitec. The system can be applied for both new entry water, recycled drain and discharge water. UV disinfection allows continuous recirculation of irrigation water in a safe way. As a result, expensive fertilizers are not flushed down the drain and do not contaminate the environment.

Made to match your business size
The Priva Vialux lets you disinfect both large and small quantities of water. The Vialux M-Line series stands for a new generation of UV disinfection, based on mid-pressure UV which is unique in the market. The modular system can be customized to meet your company’s needs. Depending on the scale of operation, two, four, six or eight UV disinfection chambers can be installed. The Vialux HD-UV series is based on high pressure UV with a single exposure chamber where all the monitoring is taking place. The Vialux E-Line can be used for the treatment of discharge water, as a system or as hybrid solution with the E-line module. This module can be adjusted to almost every Vialux. The Vialux E-Line monitors the volume that has to be discharged.

All series can be operated as a stand-alone system via onboard controls or integrated as a sub-station of your (greenhouse) process automation system.
