ARK Cooling System - Our Passive Cooling system utilizes evaporation to cool down any grow space.

  • Our patented technology uses about 5% of the amount of electricity that a swamp cooler in the same size greenhouse. Source McGill thesis

 
  • Temperatures in a grow room can be reduced by 6°C - 20°C (3.4°F - 22°F)  below ambient outside air 

  • The ARK Cooling system uses 50% water as compared to a pad and fan cooling system making our system more efficient in terms of water use efficiency. A swamp cooler can use 10 gallons of water per hour with no water recovery

We price our system site specific and would be happy to provide a quote for retrofits as well as for new builds

ARK Energy Curtain - An Energy curtain made with Mylar can be utilized to keep your crop warm in the dark nights of winter or can be used as light deprivation. Mylar is a material used by NASA in space suits effectively reducing the size and weight of previously used space suits. 

  • Reduces heating costs up to 60% at night

  • Light deprivation for medicinal crops

  • Can be effectively automated

  • Reflective material increases artificial light efficiency

Aquaculture/Aquaponics

ARK Aquaponic Systems - Aquaponics significantly reduces fertilizer costs and acts as secondary profit center. Growing aquaponically allows produce to be labelled organically grown demanding a premium price.

System Features:

  • Swirl separator

  • Mechanical easy to clean filter

  • Proprietary media mbbr

  • Dual drain design for maximum solids removal and make up fresh water for live stock - minimizing water exchange rates

  • Mineralization tank for effluent handling to maximize plant production

  • Systems sized site specific

  • Retrofitting hydroponic systems is possible

  • Modular for expansion

Approximately 80-90% of the cost of producing nitrogen fertilizer is the cost of natural gas”
