  • Various configurations available, including dual-room and airlock/anteroom options
  • Robust steel construction with insulated panelling
  • Industry-leading HMI control system with intuitive programming
  • Remote web-based chamber monitoring and control
  • CO2 monitoring and regulation
  • Precise temperature and humidity management
  • Fluorescent and LED lighting options
  • Ducted ventilation for air flow manipulation
  • Security and data protection options
  • Customised built-in and modular solutions for in-facility installation

MineARC can offer PC2 and PC3 certifiable WIC solutions on client request. This can include a pressurised airlock, designed to protect the internal environment upon entry, removing the risk of contamination.

HMI Control System for Controlled Environment

Improvements in light technology are providing more efficient, accessible options for many researchers. Variations on light intensity, direction and distribution are just some of the conditions that can be manipulated within a Biora Walk-In or Reach-In Plant Growth Chamber.

Lights emit different colour spectrums, and determining the correct spectral mix is one of the main challenges to researchers. The impact of light technology on these artificial environments is significant; with studies showing that super bright red, blue and far-red light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have many advantages over conventional light sources.

MineARC offers a range of LED, HPS and Fluorescent lights, of varying intensities; providing complete control for any research requirement.

  • Custom lighting design based on requirements, including LED and HPS
  • Control over canopy, intensity and spectrum for day time and seasonal replication
  • Single and multi-tier opportunities
  • Optional high-quality built-in light measurement equipment for optimisation of growth yield

Biora Research Grade Walk-In and Reach-In Chambers provide a range of advanced, highly efficient cooling, heating and ventilation control options.

Clever design ensures upward, uniform airflow and temperature across the chamber, reducing the risk of condensation formation on samples and equipment.

Internal temperature, humidity and pressure sensors, as well as inbuilt redundancy measures ensure conditions are maintained at all times.

Biora HVAC System, Air Flow Control

The monitoring and control of oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) is a standard feature of all Biora Research Grade Walk-In and Reach- In Chambers. Additional gases such as nitrogen (N2) can be added as an option.

For CO2 removal and replacement, MineARC scrubbing technology can be utilised to reduce levels within the system to below 250ppm (0.025%) and a plenum CO2 additive system can be included with an adjustable flow rate.
