Why is pH Important for Hydroponics?

pH is important in hydroponics because plants grown in hydroponic systems require different pH levels than plants grown in soil. Getting the right level of pH is vital as it affects nutrient availability and plant growth.  Hydroponic cultivation allows you to grow anywhere, produce higher yields, control the conditions, and fewer resources are needed, thus

What Is ORP?

Oxidation-reduction potential (ORP), also known as redox, is the electron exchange potential that measures if a substance (usually liquid) is either oxidized or reduced. ORP is commonly used to measure cleanliness in water systems and the breakdown of waste products, detritus, and contaminants. ORP tells us if water quality is high or low in any

Why Is pH Important?

Why Is pH Important?

pH is important for a wide range of industries from aquaculture to wastewater treatments that require an accurate pH reading, especially when it comes down to human safety.  Potential for hydrogen, or pH, is a measurement to quantify the chemical conditions (the number of hydrogen ions) of an aqueous solution and is vital in a

The Importance of Controlled Humidity Levels for Growing Cannabis

Ever wondered how cannabis growers get the perfect aroma? From growing cannabis to consuming it, it all comes down to humidity. The marijuana industry is booming – generating ~$34 billion every year. As more legal growers take on the challenge, Americans are on the hunt for the best indoor grow rooms (under strict governmental rules

What is a Flow Meter?

A flow meter (often referred to as a flow sensor) is a device to measure flow rates of a gas or liquid in many types of applications, for example, liquid passing through a conduit. This can be either via the mass (linear or nonlinear ) or volumetric flow.  Despite many flow meters working differently, they

Applications of Peristaltic Pumps

Peristaltic pumps (also known as roller pumps) are a type of positive displacement pump that is used in a variety of different industries. They are mainly used for high purification applications because the material being pumped is confined to a tube keeping the media pristine. For that reason, they are most commonly used in metering,

Why is Aeration Important for Wastewater Treatment?

Wastewater Aeration is the process of water treatment where air and water commingle in order to remove dissolved gases from the water. Aeration is an essential part of the wastewater treatment process because it assists in removing constituents from the water in preparation for the next phase of water treatment. Additionally, the methodology by which
