SOLAR HEAT FOR CLEANING, HEATING AND DRYING LOWER YOUR DEPENDANCE ON FOSSIL FUELS

Cleaning in place and sanitary hot water for farming

Cleaning in place require heat during the caustic wash step of their cleaning cycle.  Rackam has designed a solar heating package to reduce the recourse to fossil fuels to heat up cleaning in place systems (CIP).  The solar package is designed to be easy to install and can be deployed at any farm, small of large.

Space heating and warehouse heating

Rackam offers a hybrid technology combining a heat pump and efficient low temperature solar collectors to reduce the amount of gas used to heat large farm buildings.

Natural light enhancement using fresnel mirrors

In recent years, our experience with tracking mirrors and mechanized mirror arrays has been called upon to realize an innovative system to increase the light available for plant growth inside a tunnel greenhouse. The project currently deployed at the Abri Végétal in Compton (Quebec, Canada) has increased the production of the test greenhouse by 30 to 40%.
