  • Automated Control Systems for Aquaculture

    Argus is an automated control systems pioneer with over thirty years of leadership and innovation in control technology. We were among the first to use computers for integrating the control of greenhouse environments and irrigation systems. Today our systems are used in horticulture and biotechnology research facilities, universities, aquaculture and aquaponics, and many other custom control applications at sites throughout the world.

    Gas Sensing for Horticulture

    Controlled Environment Horticulture is a vast topic, and has been utilised in varying forms for centuries. Excavations of the city of Pompeii showed remains of early greenhouses dating back to AD79; and the modern greenhouses are thought to originate in the thirteenth century in Italy. Most people recognise the use of greenhouses for growing flowers and vegetables, whether in their own garden, at garden centres or on a commercial basis. Indeed most people will be conversant with irrigation systems that are used to supply water to such greenhouses and the use of heaters to control the temperature and thereby extend the growing season. However, modern systems have been developed for Controlled Environment Horticulture that are designed to further optimise the growing conditions; with sophisticated computer controlled sensors, combined with advanced software models, that can control not only the temperature, light level and water, but also the level of nutrients, humidity, pH and CO2

    Continuous emissions monitoring for fertilizer industry

    Process control and emissions monitoring in a fertilizer plant is a challenge due to the high concentrations of HF. To use an extractive system in this environment will demand a lot of maintenance.

  • Liners for Aquaculture / Aquacultery Hatchery Liners

    MPC Containment’s Aquaculture/Hatchery Liners allow for a controlled environment to minimize disease.  The liner must not emit any harmful chemicals and in many cases, it must confirm to FDA or other stringent requirements and regulations.  The liner must have excellent puncture and tear resistance. The liner must be fabricated and installed so that it is watertight as preventing seepage can be a major cost savings.  MPC recommends Reinforced Polypropylene or PetroGard™ VI for these applications as they meet the criteria listed above.
