Implementation of destratification fans is the surest way to prevent air layers from forming in your indoor grow room. The Surna Destrat Ventilator promotes vertical air movement by pulling hot, humid air at the canopy and displacing it with cooler, dryer air when used in conjunction with a Surna-designed system. This creates a more homogeneous cultivation environment and allows your cooling and dehumidifying equipment to operate at their correct capacities for precise environmental control.
Stratification occurs as a result of a combination of several factors typical of indoor cultivation. Plant transpiration creates moisture that traps heat at the canopy level and doesn’t allow it to rise. Intense indoor lighting causes a layer of humidity and heat to form at the canopy level. In order to combat this polarizing effect on the environment, the Destrat Ventilator disrupts the canopy layer of air and redistributes dehumidified, cool air back down.
The destratification achieved by this unit has multiple benefits that effect your grow operation as a whole. By creating vertical air movement through the plant canopy, the Destrat Ventilator helps eliminate stagnant air and assists in overall biosecurity while optimizing uniform temperature and humidity distribution. Destratification will also enable the climate control equipment to effectively access warm, humid air that typically gets trapped at the plant canopy, resulting in an overall decrease in energy consumption, leading to a reduction in recurring monthly expenses and operating costs.
Features and Benefits
Comprised of an electronically commutated (EC) motor, offering modulating fan control via an external controls signal or, if you prefer, unit-mounted speed switch.
If properly maintained, this unit’s EC motor has the potential to significantly reduce energy consumption compared to other conventional fan motors.
Vertical Air Movement
Unit directs hot, humid air upward from otherwise potentially stagnant thermal layers, aiding cooling and dehumidifying equipment in dispersing cooler, dryer air where needed.
