Universal FAQ: CO2 Enrichment

Where does the gas come from? Burners, Bulk Tank, Micro Bulk?

We utilize CO2 bulk tanks. This is the most efficient, and environmentally friendly method of supplying CO2 gas to your grow area.

How does the system work?

A 9-inch touch screen monitor and control center allows for complete automation of CO2 enrichment to each and every grow area.

Why do we need alarms and sensors?

In Denver, where the system was developed, Areas Having Jurisdiction have deemed it necessary to have safety monitoring and alarms in each CO2 enriched area. Our company prides itself in researching and complying by international and state specific Fire and NFPA Code in each CO2 enriched zone. 

I already have CO2 monitors in my grow areas. Can I just keep those and add your monitors and controls?

Most CO2 monitors installed in grow do not have alarms integrated. To meet AHJ regulations our system is networked with all safety and alarms.

How do we get more CO2 gas?

We offer a system that will automatically contact the gas supplier when you tank starts running low. The gas supplier offers services to come and fill you tank immediately.

How much more will our facility grow when enriching with CO2?

Typical grows see a yield increase of at least 20-40% 

Is it okay if we already have plants in the areas you want gassed?

Yes, though it is easier for us to work in empty areas, we can provide gas to rooms that are already occupied by plants and ready to be enriched.

Who supplies the bulk tank for the CO2?

No need to worry, we will set you up with a bulk tank provider in your area.

Do I have to be on site to track trends and control the system?

Your system is networked; you can track trends and manage CO2 levels from anywhere.

Is gassing an area with CO2 bad for the environment?

If kept at levels under 1500 ppm with sufficient lighting, the plants actually recycle the CO2, replacing it with oxygen.
