An important part of saving energy is having the most precisely tuned climate control possible, which provides the perfect balance between greenhouse climate, plant health and energy consumption. Besides setting the right controls in the climate computer, the properties of a Ridder Energy Saving Screen, for example, also play an important role.
By using a Ridder Pyrgeometer, the application of an energy saving screen cloth can be optimized even further, resulting in higher returns and a healthier greenhouse climate.
The Ridder Pyrgeometer measures the degree of greenhouse energy irradiation (energy loss). This sensor information can then be used to proactively close or open the energy screen in time. This gives you more control over the temperature and humidity in the greenhouse, maintaining an optimal plant temperature and preventing unnecessary energy loss.
Some greenhouses require a unique screen. For example, AgroCare's facility in Tunisia, where tomatoes are...
