Carbon Filters for Hydroponics
Hydroponics is a method of growing plants by using mineral nutrient solutions in water and without the use of soil. Terrestrial plants may be grown by having their roots in the mineral nutrient solution or in a inert medium for example perlite, gravel or mineral wool. This process was first discovered in the 19th century, researchers found that plants absorb essential mineral nutrients as inorganic ions in water. This means that in natural conditions the soil acts as a mineral nutrient reservoir but the soil itself is not essential for the growth of a plant. When the mineral nutrients in the soil dissolve in the water the plant roots are able to absorb these, once the mineral nutrients are introduced in to the plats water supply the soil is no longer required in order for the plant to thrive. This is a standard technique that is used in biology research and teaching. Gericke originally defined this process as crop growth in mineral nutrient solutions that has no solid medium for roots. The distinction between this process and soil less culture of plants has often by blurred. The soil less culture is a broader term and it only requires that no soil with clay or silt is used. Many types of the soil less culture do not use the mineral nutrient solutions that are required in the process.
At AAC Eurovent we supply an extensive range of carbon filters and carbon canisters designed odour control hydroponics grow rooms. In addition to this we operate a fast turnaround quality activated carbon media resupply service.
