Delta-Tube - Model EPDM SD - Rubber Tube Bench Heating
This bench system heats the greenhouse starting at the soil level. Heat rising from the bench warms the soil and the plant roots. Tubing spaced 2 to 3 inches apart provides even soil temperatures, which prove extremely beneficial to propagators. Seed germinators and plug producers have found that by heating the soil, they achieve a higher germination rate and quicker production time. Growers have found a reduction in rooting cuts by heating the soil directly.
The DELTA-TUBE EPDM rubber tubing used in this hot-water heating system offers superior heat transfer capabilities as well as excellent resistance to temperature degradation and chemicals. The SD system’s small tube design reduces water volume, enabling the system to respond quickly and efficiently.
The DELTA-TUBE manifolds use a unique plastic fitting that creates a watertight connection to the tubing guaranteed not to leak. Tubing is easily installed into the manifold, and each manifold is custom manufactured for each system. Cut to the bench width for ease of installation, tubing spacers secure the Delta T tubing at optimum intervals.
