The Amarillo Area Center for Advanced Learning needed a solution for the hard water scaling issues they were experiencing in their greenhouse. The cool cell filter for the greenhouse’s cooling system had to be replaced every two weeks, the mist heads in the propagation tent required cleaning every few days and salt deposits were apparent on the plant cuttings. These issues impacted results and incurred costs for replacement parts and labor.
On July 12, 2012, a ¾” Scaletron was installed in the greenhouse.
The installation has been a great success with the customer noticing improvements within days. Cool cell filter life has been extended greatly and the mist heads have not required cleaning following an initial clean following the installation of the Scaletron.
A full testimonial detailing results and photos appear later in this case study.
