`A technique of growing plants in nutrient solution”. Hydroponics literally means water-working or water-activation. It is a cultivation technique for growing plants in highly oxygenated, nutrient enriched water, rather than soil. The nutrient solution and its management are the cornerstone for a successful hydroponics system. The function of a hydroponics nutrient solution is to supply the plant roots with water, oxygen and essential mineral elements in soluble form. In soil, biological decomposition breaks down...
Delta Hydronics Inc. is recognized as the leader in the Hydroponics Industry by designing, engineering and installing water heating and cooling systems for the hydroponic growing, harvesting and produce processing industries.
Your hydroponic growing media should do several things: wick and retain water, provide a stable pH, drain well and not fall apart so your system stays clean. Quick Plug North America offers the hydroponic grower several product lines with these characteristics. Our FlexiPlug® and FlexiTray® growing medium is optimized for all industry standard systems: Nutrient Film Technique, Ebb & Flow, Deep Water Raft, Aeroponic, and Drip. We have been working with hydroponic and aquaponic companies all over the...

Aptisens Digital or Mobile Multiple Ion Kit
Aptisens multiple ion conditioning solution
Aptisens multiple ion HORTICULTURE calibration solutions
Sample Preparation:Typically, it is not a requirement to filter a hydroponics sample.
Calibration:Before use the multiple ion probe must be conditioned in Aptisens multiple ion conditioning solution. Ensure the correct calibration solutions for a three-point calibration are set up on the Mobile meter or MeterLink....
Accurate measurement of flow rate is an important factor in aquaculture research. With aquaculture playing an increasingly important role in the provision of global fish supplies, there is a corresponding growth in aquaculture related research to support the industry and optimise its activities.
F VA Trogflux rotameter flow meters have been supplied to a number of marine science centres and environmental laboratories to monitor the flow of water through fish tanks / cells and assess the impact of flow on fish...
UV disinfection is popular for treating water used in horticultural applications, as it introduces no chemicals or by-products which can stress plants and lower crop quality.
Leading OEMs manufacture specific UV systems to continually disinfect the water being used in various soil based and soil-less plant cultivation techniques, such as hydroponic systems. UV disinfection does not affect the pH or chemistry of the water and neutralises many organisms problematic to commercial horticulturalists such as fungi,...
Rendering is a process that converts waste animal tissue into stable, value-added materials. Edible rendering processes are basically meat processing operations and produce lard or edible tallow for use in food products. Edible rendering is generally carried out in a continuous process at low temperature (less than the boiling point of water). The process usually consists of finely chopping the edible fat materials (generally fat trimmings from meat cuts), heating them with or without added steam, and then...
Cofilea is founded in 2005 in Biella, in the north-west of Italy. In 2013, we patented ET-1000 a electric heating technical textile. Cofilea uses this to produce:
EH-POWERGROUND. It is a light, water-resistant radiant mat, that can be used for flower farming and horticulture as ground heating on racks, with the purpose of reducing and controlling the duration of the growing period, between the seeding or transplantation and the moment of marketability of the plant. This system is characterized by efficiency...
