Voor een gelijkmatige opkweek: Monitoring van de horizontale temperatuurverschillen bij plantenkwekerij Van der Lugt

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


The horizontal temperature distribution in a compartment of a nursery company is monitored during a month. The temperature difference between the warmest and the coldest place averaged no more than 1 °C. The main cause of the differences laid in the heat transfer from the distribution pipes. The wind direction had no influence on the temperature distribution, probably because the compartment has no outside gables, so the wind can’t create much pressure differences. Also small screen openings did not to lead to undesirable horizontal air movements, possibly because of the relatively small area of the compartment (5000 m2).
