Cooling a fruiting chamber
    #4155684 - 05/10/05 02:00 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Other than window air conditioning units or refrigerators, are there any other ways to cool a fruiting chamber?

I would imagine you could use 2 liter bottles, milk jugs, etc filled with ice to cool it, but how long would it last? I know there isn't a given equation for ice melting over time since there are way too many factors but is there anything close? I can figure out the energy needed to melt the ice, is there a way to roughly figure out how long it will take for the ambient temp to apply that energy to the ice?

*my guess is just to freeze a bottle and see how long it last* :p

If ever you are in a thrift store & see an electric single wine bottle chiller, grab that puppy up. They have a dial adjustment & work wonders for keeping the temp down - in a large fruiting chamber.

Fill a water ballon, stuff it in where the bottle should go & you are set. Adjust dial accordingly.

Throw ice on your perlite or LECA or get some of those Ice Packs N'ICE or whatever they are called. It can drop the temp 10 degrees or so, maybe more.

Need to drop the temp from 80-95 down into the 70s. Using cool mist, not geolite or perlite. thanks for the tip agar. That will do the trick nicely if I can find one cheap.
