CO2 Generators

Carbon dioxide is one of the essential ingredients in green plant growth and is a primary environmental factor in greenhouses. CO2 enrichment at 2, 3, or 4 times natural concentration will cause plants to grow faster and improve plant quality. Outdoors, the average CO2 concentration range is 300-500 parts per million. Indoors, the plants use CO2 during photosynthesis, creating lower concentration ranges that cannot be automatically renewed. CO2 generators allow growers to renew and maintain optimum CO2 levels inside their greenhouses automatically.

Increase the growth and yield of your greenhouse plants with our CO2 generator! Our generator is specifically designed for greenhouse use and is the perfect solution for growers looking to boost their crop production.

Our CO2 generator is easy to use and highly efficient. It runs on propane or natural gas and can produce up to 15,000 cubic feet of CO2 per hour. The generator features an intuitive control panel that allows you to adjust the CO2 output levels to suit your needs easily. Plus, the hot surface ignition system ensures that the generator starts up quickly and reliably every time.

Using a CO2 generator in your greenhouse has many benefits. Increasing the amount of CO2 in the air will help your plants grow faster and produce more fruit. In fact, studies have shown that increasing CO2 levels in greenhouses can increase crop yields by up to 30%! Additionally, CO2 supplementation can improve the quality and nutrient content of your produce, leading to healthier, more flavorful crops.

Our CO2 generator is built to last and is made from high-quality materials. It measures 36 inches by 18 inches by 20 inches and weighs 75 pounds, making it easy to move and install. It also has a built-in safety shut-off valve and pressure regulator for added peace of mind.

How to use a CO2 Generator?

  1. First, position the CO2 generator in a well-ventilated greenhouse area, away from combustible materials. Make sure it is placed on a flat, stable surface.

  2. Connect the generator to a gas supply using the appropriate hose and regulator. Follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully to ensure a safe and proper connection.

  3. Turn on the gas supply and light the generator using a lighter or match, following the instructions provided in the user manual. Some gas generators may have an automatic ignition system, which eliminates the need for manual lighting.

  4. Once the generator is lit, adjust the CO2 output to the desired level using the control valve. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions for specific details on how to adjust the output.

  5. Monitor the CO2 levels in your greenhouse using a CO2 monitor, and adjust the generator output as necessary to maintain the desired levels.

  6. Regularly check the generator for any signs of damage or wear, and perform routine maintenance as recommended in the user manual.

  7. When you're done using the CO2 generator, turn off the gas supply and allow the generator to cool down completely before storing it.

It's important to always follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully when using a gas-powered CO2 generator to ensure safe and effective use. Additionally, make sure to use a high-quality CO2 monitor to accurately measure and maintain the CO2 levels in your greenhouse.
