N.F.T. Hydroponic Systems

N.F.T. Hydroponic Systems -         HYDROINVENT

N.F.T. hydroponic systems are the cheapest, easiest and most productive soilless culture systems. The nutrient solution is pumped through the fill tube lying on a tray, which is placed at an angle.
The nutrients flow through the roots forming a layer of about 2 mm. This way only the lower part of the roots benefits from the nutrients by absorbing what they need, while the remaining parts stay oxygenated.
Inside the drain tube a whirl is generated which brings a great amount of air into the reservoir, thus keeping the solution oxygenated and avoiding algae growth or residual deposits.
Only balcony and terrace systems are shown here, but given that the system is modular, it is possible to manufacture systems covering wide areas at a reduced cost, both on one level and even on two or three levels, as it happens for strawberries and salad.

NET pots

NET pots -         HYDROINVENT

When used for home systems, the N.F.T. hydroponic system employs 5 cm pots, so that the roots can grow without getting tangled.
The 5 cm pot is used mainly to grow lettuce and aromatic herbs in all home systems.
Industrial systems to grow strawberries use 7.5 cm net pots.

N.F.T. and run-to-waste hybrid systems

N.F.T. and run-to-waste hybrid systems -         HYDROINVENT

As our systems are modular, our customers can set up a system with both N.F.T. and run-to-waste features, in order to grow different plants using only one system.
The N.F.T. system can be used to grow lettuce, chards, strawberries and aromatic plants, while the run-to-waste system can be used to cultivate tomatoes, peppers, aubergines, etc.
