DIY Hyperbaric chamber?
    #15477609 - 12/07/11 12:33 AM (3 years, 16 days ago)

Can anyone tell me if it would be possible to build a small, yet fully functional hyperbaric chamber to regulate pressure/O2/CO2 levels of plants inside? Anyone have any links to do so?

The only ones I could find to buy online had no prices listed, but after quick googling/talking to a co worker about it, they're around 10K. A little steep.

It would certainly be possible, but you better have a decent machining skill set, tools, and a bit of cash.  I would start with a boiler and retask it.

You can find chambers less than 10,000... try www.newtownehyperbarics.com ; They have one for about 5000 and have specials for less than that.  You will find that building your own chamber will probably cost more than that and could be very dangerous.

It's something a coworker told me about, supposedly most forms of plants and fungi grown in one can reach enormous height and potency. I have yet to find anything myself proving this though.

in theory one could simplify the task by using a 50 gal glass jug and a vacuum pump with a pressure entrance.

There are a lot of reasons one would use one. Although this forum is the first time I have personally heard of anyone using them for plant growth. I have heard of people using them for health and wellness reasons. Here is a link to a site that could help answer some questions. hyperbaricoptions.com

As for the beginning of this forum; It can be very dangerous trying to build your own chamber and unless you know exactly what you are doing I would say do not try to build it.
