`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...
Globalization puts ever-increasing demands on the food and agriculture industry. Highly sensitive analytical instrumentation is key for reliable monitoring of food products along the food chain starting from agricultural production over food processing and packaging to distribution and consumption. Analytik Jena analytical solutions help you meet industry standards during both development of new products or quality control assessment.
The use of Refrigeration and Temperature control systems in AGRICULTURAL and FARMING applications is fundamental to preserve the freshness of the materials across the entire food supply chain, but also for their processing, during sorting, processing, packaging, and storage.
Wineries use refrigeration for a wide variety of purposes. In particular temperature control is a critical parameter of quality in wine production and surprisingly, cooling units make up the bulk of energy consumption and costs in wineries (about 50-70% of total electricity usage).
Hilliard offers a broad line of motion control products for the Mining Industry including caliper brakes and backstopping clutches for conveyors, brake systems for draglines and ball mills as well as the Brake Boss brake control system. Hilliard products are designed, manufactured, and sold according to the customers` applications.
Delta-T Devices has over thirty years experience in designing and supplying environmental monitoring equipment – from a single sensor through to a complete advanced automatic weather station. Our range includes: data loggers, sensors, weather stations, mast and mountings, battery and solar power, a variety of communications options, and enclosures. Complex systems can be created with ease. These often include a wide range of inputs, such as soil moisture sensors, solar radiation sensors and meteorological...
Accuracy and ease of use make SM300 Soil Moisture Sensors well suited to irrigation applications. Readings can be used to optimise irrigation scheduling, or the SM300 can be installed as part of an automatic irrigation system. The sensor`s compact size allows it to be installed in plant pots or grow bags.
There are areas in which complete respect for the environment is a fundamental must. Consider, for example, the creation or maintenance of public parks, both in urban and rural areas, or worksites in agricultural areas. MB`s range permit the immediate crushing, recycling and reuse of materials for the completion of works in total respect for the natural characteristics of the area. Gardens and parks are completed with the same materials that were previously extracted without altering the elements that they are...
Delta-T Devices supplies high quality equipment to help horticultural growers and sports turf professionals monitor irrigation and control irrigation – using proven technology. Accurate measurements of growing conditions is key to effective precision irrigation – and we provide instruments that deliver reliable data to support critical decisions. The proven benefits of precision irrigation for growers include enhanced crop development (improved yield, quality and shelf life) alongside reduced fertiliser...
The agriculture industry is a water intensive industry that needs a constant contaminant free water supply to ensure high harvest yields and healthy farm livestock. Agriculture in the U.S. is dominated by large, specialized crop and animal farms. These industrial farms focus on short-term productivity, often at the cost of creating environmental and public health problems. This focus on short term productivity, requires agriculture water treatment solutions and specific soil additives that are sustainable and...
Delta-T Devices has been providing high quality instrumentation for plant physiology and intercepted solar radiation studies for over 30 years. Our plant science products are renowned for their build quality, accuracy and ergonomics – and are used by researchers around the world. Our range includes instruments for measuring stomatal conductance, Leaf Area Index in crop canopies and forest canopies, and to quantify healthy/diseased/pest-damaged leaf area.

The water supply and irrigation industry provides drinking water treatment to residential, commercial, municipal and industrial sectors of the economy. This industry requires products and solutions for soil vapor extraction/groundwater remediation; chemical, biological and mechanical odor control; and fluid handling and filtration.
The Aquaculture industry is one of the fastest growing segments in the agricultural industry accounting for over 1.13 billion dollars in the USA alone. However, this industry is suffering with several water quality challenges requiring sustainable aquaculture water treatment solutions to enhance fish health, and population yield while meeting environmental discharge regulations. The challenges facing aquaculture companies include emerging growth rates of specific bacteria and viruses, water usage, and environmental...
Cambridge based Delta-T Devices specialises in instruments for environmental science, in particular: agronomy, plant physiology, eco-physiology, data logging, meteorology, soil moisture, solar energy studies and environmental monitoring.
Delta-T Devices solar radiation measurement instruments are well suited to scientific research, meteorological applications, and commercial photovoltaic validation/monitoring. Our range includes the SPN1 Sunshine Pyranometer and BF5 Sunshine Sensor – both of which measure global (total) and diffuse radiation, and sunshine state (all in a single instrument). They are also easy to use and need no routine adjustment or polar alignment.
