Enerdes® Cannabis Climate Systems

convection tubes

Convection Tubes (⌀ 470 mm till 940 mm)

For precise climate control in greenhouses, efficient air distribution is crucial. Enerdes leads in air hose technology, having developed the double air distribution hose to optimize air flow. Working in concert with our clients, we tailor the perforation patterns of our hoses to meet the unique demands of each greenhouse operation. This dedicated approach is central to our role as specialists in air distribution, reflecting our sober commitment to agricultural advancement.
Greenhouse cooling pads

Cooling Pads: Fan and Pad Cooling System

When the recirculation of air in the greenhouse is not enough to create a perfect climate for the crop, air from the outside is required. When outside air is drawn in, the use of cooling pads is the most efficient way to cool the greenhouse. By using cooling pads, the ambient temperature can be significantly lowered.

Advantages of Enerdes Cooling Pads:
  • Long product lifetime
  • Use of frames to increase stability
  • Universally applicable
  • Low maintenance
  • Environmentally friendly

AC fan in Greenhouse

Air Extraction Fans (AC Fans)

AC Fans excel at supplying fresh air to your greenhouse’s cultivation zones, enhancing both the comfort level and the efficiency of your agricultural enterprise. These fans play a critical role in boosting the quality and productivity of your greenhouse operations. For added functionality, these units can be equipped with automatic self-closing louvers. These louvers open seamlessly as the fan activates, providing efficient air regulation.
Air extraction fans

EC fans (Axial Flow)

EC Axial fans, electronically commutated for optimized energy efficiency, are designed to move air axially, parallel to the shaft around which the blades rotate. These fans excel in environments with large air volume needs and low-pressure constraints, such as Greenhouses. Ideal for cooling, ventilation, and air circulation, these axial fans are an excellent choice for specialized applications. Our engineering team possesses the expertise to tailor these fans to your project’s unique specifications.
Air extraction fans

EC fans (Radial Flow)

Radial EC fans are an excellent choice for greenhouse settings, delivering a range of benefits uniquely tailored to such environments. By circulating air in a radial manner, they ensure even airflow throughout the entire greenhouse space. Additionally, the state-of-the-art, energy-efficient motor technology in these fans substantially cuts down on electricity usage. This makes them a more economical option compared to traditional fan systems.

Enerdes offers the ideal climate control for every stage of industrial cannabis growing:

  • Growing areas
  • Processing areas
  • Drying rooms

Our greenhouse climate installations provide air with the optimal temperature, humidity conditions and air circulation for growing cannabis on an industrial scale.

Enerdes take the special requirements for cannabis growing into account, such as:

  • Evaporation of water by the plants
  • Heat effects of the growing lights
  • Air filtration
  • Odour control

Enerdes has engineered and developed air conditioning installations for cannabis climate control that are suitable for warm or cold, dry or wet climates and every combination in between.

Automatic Cannabis Climate Control

For the cultivation of medical cannabis, the lights-on and lights-off cycle is of utmost importance. The lighting has a huge influence on the temperature and on plant evaporation and thus humidity. Therefore, industrial cannabis greenhouses require an automated cannabis climate control system.

It is very important to realize that accurate greenhouse climate conditions during both lights-on and lights-off periods, are crucial to optimal plant growth and consistent cannabis quality.

Enerdes air handling units (AHU) are controlled based on sensor information of temperature and humidity:

  • The sensors are placed at many locations spread over the greenhouse area
  • Each AHU adjusts its heating, cooling, humidifying and dehumidifying capacity based on the air conditioning requirements of its allocated area
  • Set points for temperature, humidity and air movement may be changed during the crop life cycle
  • Set point adjustment and accurate control throughout the day

The result?

Perfect and homogeneous growing conditions at every location in the greenhouse!

Enerdes provides a complete solution for cannabis climate control that will be engineered and optimized to your specific greenhouse requirements.

Cannabis Climate Control Heating and Cooling

There are many aspects that make cannabis HVAC a climate control challenge and that is why it is wise to have an expert company design your climate control.

Enerdes has decades of experience in greenhouse climate installations and has completed many projects in medical cannabis related industries.

3 example factors that determine cannabis climate control:

  • Water evaporation:
    The large amount of water that the plants evaporate. The air in the greenhouse must be dehumidified and compensate for the latent energy load.
  • Heat effects of growing lights:
    The large production of heat created by the growing lights when they are ON, which is completely absent when they are OFF. This is sensible energy load.
  • Outdoor climate:
    Heat and cold from the outside

When selecting HVAC equipment for growing cannabis, we first look at the outdoor climate your greenhouse operates in. Depending on the temperature and humidity conditions outside, it can be determined how much capacity is required for heating, cooling and (de)humidifying your greenhouse.

At many locations, the climate has seasonal changes. Some greenhouses may need to be cooled in the summer and heated in the winter. Enerdes can supply air handling units that very efficiently do both.

Regulations for Industrial Cannabis Cultivation

Not only air conditioning is important when growing cannabis on an industrial scale. Many areas will have strict regulations for medical cannabis cultivation operations.

Several important areas to consider are:

  1. Air filtration, HEPA filter grade
  2. Fresh air intake and air exhausts
  3. Odour control

1. Air filtration
The HEPA filter grade is important when one wishes to clean the air from even the smallest particles like viruses and bacteria. It requires powerful fans because the pressure drop over such a fine grade filter is significant. Besides climate control, Enerdes air handling units include filtration with several filter grades, depending on the customer’s wishes.

2. Fresh air intake and air exhausts
Any professional cannabis greenhouse operation will be very careful with fresh air intake and air exhaust. It is essential to be able to control the fresh air and exhaust air volumes and filter the fresh air for high crop quality and prevention of mold, mildew and plant diseases in your greenhouse.

3. Odour control
At the air exhaust, a commercial cannabis cultivation must consider odour control. This can be achieved through activated carbon and charcoal filters or through air purifiers.

All these systems are engineered and supplied by Enerdes and work together very well with the other air handling units.
