OUR CHERRY CREEK WATER BOOM TECHNOLOGY
What is amount of water delivered by the boom system? Also the water pressure required for this system?
All of our systems are built to the customer's specs and the flow rate or volume is different for every customer. The average for most systems is anywhere from 8 to 20 gallons per minute at a pressure rating of anywhere from 25 psi to 80 psi, depending on your availability (the system can handle up to 120 psi, but we do not recommend this to reduce wear on all of the greenhouses PVC lines).
What does NIC controller and WIC controller mean?
The NIC ( Network) controller is the best option, as it is very easy to use giving you the option of having 60 jobs (crops) in one bay. This enables you to have different crops and crop times without any problems.
The WIC controller provides the ultimate in crop control as it uses areas (liner foot measurements) to decipher each crop from one another. This controller has many functions that make it a _stand alone_ in the industry. In short I will name a few: the step / stop / water feature allows the boom to stop on a row of pots, water for a programmed amount of time, and move to the next row (a programmed amount of space) on down the house. This controller is a bit more complicated in its programming, but can be taught to the best of them.
Explanation of the different options:
Dual Water Mist Upgrade
Only need Basic Controller to do this.
Triple Step/Stop/Water Upgrade.
No. we include everything you will need for the system itself. You purchase the steel (as it will be cheaper to get it locally) and run the plumbing and electrical to the system from your greenhouse.
As far as maintenance goes, what kind of maintenance do the engineers suggest to avoid blockage?
We provide an in-line Amiad filter with every system. There are also filters in every spray body. The in-line filter needs to be checked weekly (depending on your water quality) and the body filters checked at least every two to three months.
