Linear Air Pumps for Hydroponics

Aeration is an essential component of Deep-Water Culture (DWC) hydroponics systems.

SALINE, Mich. - Michimich -- Hydroponics is the technique of growing plants in nutrient enriched water instead of soil.  The nutrient solution (includes such minerals as phosphorous, magnesium, nitrogen, and potassium) is recirculated in a closed loop system.

What are the benefits of hydroponics?

High yield: hydroponics yields more calories per square foot. Plants can be placed closer together allowing for more plants or a smaller growing area.

Since hydroponics systems can be installed indoors, plants can grow in any climate throughout all seasons.

Hydroponics uses 90-95% less water than traditional farming methods because there is little evaporation and water is re-circulated in a closed loop system.

Vegetables tend to grow 25-50% faster than in conventional farming methods. Plants grow up faster because there is less of a root system.

Hydroponics does not rely on pesticides and is environmentally friendly.

There are no weeds, less pests, and less disease than conventional farming.

About HIBLOW USA: HIBLOW invented the linear diaphragm air pump back in 1968 and is the gold standard.  Most models run on 70 watts or less with a noise level below 40 dBa.  HIBLOW pumps use only a few moving parts and therefore can be easily rebuilt in 20 minutes or less.  With 2 rebuilds, the aerators can continuously run for up to 10-15 years (depending on the system pressure and model size).  HIBLOW offers 3 different series (WG, XP, HP) with flow rates ranging from 20LPM up to 200 LPM.
