AVS-WTW stands for Active Ventilation System with Heat Recovery. Unlike in the standard AVS unit, this system draws off the greenhouse air with a fan. The incoming cold outdoor air is heated up in an air-based heat exchanger. If the temperature difference is great enough, not only the sensible but also the latent heat is used (condensation). In this version, the central heating block for the other AVS units is retained to enable air to be blown in at exactly the right temperature. The AVS-WTW therefore makes an even greater contribution to achieving a sustainable crop. This model is particularly suited to artificially lit crops. All these systems are wall units designed to be fitted on the outer walls of the greenhouse.
Various growers at home and abroad are already getting excellent results from the Active Ventilation System.
