6″ ICE Box Heat Exchanger
Gain complete control of your garden’s climate regardless of the temperature outdoors with the cooling power of the new Ice Box Heat Exchanger. Ideal temperatures mean happy plants!
The Ice Box is a water-cooled heat exchanger that can be used to cool the hot air generated by your lights. With this system, you can do away with your in and out ducting and keep everything but the water chiller inside the garden. There are several great advantages to sealing your room, including superior CO2 efficiency (by keeping your CO2 in), reduced opportunities for pests or disease to reach your plants, and easier odor control. With this system, you can get and keep absolute control of your garden temperatures and not be at the mercy of the climate outdoors. It can be used simply for controlling the heat from your lights or for replacing your air conditioner altogether, but either way, you will see a significant drop in your cooling energy requirements. Chillers are typically twice as efficient as air conditioners simply because water can absorb heat 20 times faster than air. To use the Ice Box heat exchanger efficiently, you will need a high-quality chiller, appropriately sized for your application, a 30-50 gallon reservoir, a properly sized pump, Ice Boxes for each of your reflectors, quality tubing and miscellaneous plumbing parts. To help understand the way the system works, there are instructional videos available on Youtube.com and on the Hydro Innovations website.
