MECHANICAL SYSTEMS

Venting options

Ceres sizes your exhaust system for your specific greenhouse and grow operation rather than using a white glove approach like most greenhouse companies. Depending on your climate and crop we engineer the optimal ventilation system taking into consideration, greenhouse size, relative humidity, air flow throughout the grow space, prevailing wind direction, and surrounding buildings if necessary. A Ceres ventilation system is controlled by a greenhouse controller specifically programmed for each greenhouse. This unique approach allows us precisely control the grow environment with a granular approach by only using the fans, intakes, and components we need at the time slowly ramping them up as they are needed based on temperature and relative humidity to be as energy efficient as possible and reduce temperature swings throughout the day giving you a much more precise and stable grow environment.

Wet Wall

Vents allow for outside air to enter the greenhouse where hot air passes through an evaporative water wall. Hot air picks up moisture as it passes through the water-wall, increasing humidity and lowering air temperature (by up to 30 degrees Fahrenheit) .

The vent for the wet wall is both automated and insulated, and operated by a controller, set to open when air is needed and close when insulation is needed.

  • Air passes through a perpetually watered screen.
  • Most effective in hot, dry climates.
  • Low energy consumption, high water consumption.
  • Requires exhaust vents to create airflow in greenhouse.

Ceres EcoLoop™ Geothermal

  • Utilizes the temperature of the earth in order to stabilize climate in the greenhouse.
  • Water, or glycol, is moved through subsurface piping to pull warmth or coolness from the water and force air over the warmth and / or cool air to regulate climate.
  • Provides cooling in the summer and heating in the winter
  • Dehumidification can be reduced by 40%
  • A Ground Coupled Heat Pump (GCHP) pulls moisture out of the air as it cools. Water can be collected in reservoirs and used on site.
  • High life expectancy and significantly lower energy consumption.
