Green Sense Farms completes installation of DRAMMwater ozone system

Green Sense Farms, a large indoor vertical farm that grows leafy greens, is completing installation of their first DRAMMwater Filtration and Ozonation System. This system will allow them to reduce pathogens, eliminate biofilm and keep their recirculated water clean longer, all while providing super-saturated levels of dissolved oxygen to help their plants grow.

Utilizing a depth media filter, with a specialized media that can filter to 5 µ, allows the system to reduce the overall load greatly before the oxidation process. Water is ozonated to maintain a high oxidation reduction potential (ORP) before it is sent to the plants.
The system is controlled by measuring the ORP and using a set point to ensure that the proper levels of oxidizers are present to keep the water clean and pathogen-free.
With this system, Green Sense Farms will be able to maintain dissolved oxygen levels of 15-20 ppm at room temperature. "This is much higher than can be achieved via standard aeration or oxygenation", said Kurt Becker of Dramm. "Because ozone is 12.5 times more soluble in water, the DRAMMwater system is able to dissolve more oxygen in this form than possible as O2. Because of the high oxidative potential, the lines and water are clean, reducing the demand for oxygen, helping to maintain these high levels throughout the irrigation system."
Dramm has formed a strategic partnership with Green Sense Farms to provide water treatment technology for their vegetable Farms. Green Sense Farms is building a network of indoor vertical farms in the USA, Canada, Scandinavia and China. The next Dramm until will be installed in the Shenzhen, China farm in December.
