The interior of the chambers is constructed of special stainless steel (SS 316) that will resist chemical cleaning and disinfecting.
Temperature is controlled with special wall-like cooling plates without fans for avoiding spreading the spores. The ceiling is inclined
to prohibit drops of water from settling on plants on the top shelf.Dew formation chambers come standard with an internal second glass
door for convenient sample viewing.
Microprocessor-based PID controls provides precise temperature & humidity control. The
electronic humidification system is an electronic atomizer that produces very fine water droplets that allows high precision control
of the relative humidity.
These chambers are specifically designed for plant Pathologist's researching work. Normal plant growth chambers are not capable to
simulate the ideal environment for the development of fungal diseases.
This is because only high air humidity promotes the development
of fungal diseases. Fungal spores, for instance of dreaded botrytis, that are often present in the greenhouse air, it is a matter
of conditions if these spores lead to infection and to outbreak of the disease. The spores themselves contain very little water, and
need to absorb water from the environment for germination. It is likely that RH is 100% for the best results and CDR's dew formation
chambers are capable to reproduce such an environment.
