Commercial Scale Oxygen Infusion
Looking to infuse dissolved oxygen but don’t want to deal with excess plumbing? The J-Model Toob system has everything you need packaged into one easy-to-install unit. Coming stocked with an oxygen generator and DO Stat on board, a grower can manifold up to three Solo TOOBs in one convenient package allowing you to infuse thousands of gallons per hour. Simply plug in and start gaining the benefits of dissolved oxygen!
How the TOOB J-Model works
The core function of the J-Model TOOB apparatus is effectively the same as the Craft TOOB. The key difference is the onboard controller and oxygen generator (normally sold and installed separately.) When a location is selected, simply install it into irrigation leads, set the exact D.O. level you want on the front-facing controller, then turn the switch to either "On" or "Auto". You can turn it off manually by simply switching said controller to "Off".
Where it works
How many Solo TOOBs do I need?
The J-Model can be fitted with 1-3 Solo TOOBs based on the needs of your operation. The important questions to consider are:
A general rule of thumb is (x1) Solo TOOB per every 750-1,000 gallons of irrigation water.
Benfits of The TOOB and Dissolved Oxygen
Our system dissolves oxygen in water without making bubbles. The efficiency of this manner of mass transfer allows the production of stable liquid streams containing enormous amounts of dissolved oxygen that are normally only seen in laboratory conditions. Stable high levels of dissolved oxygen are achieved with the TOOB. For example, 40-45 ppm is quite simply achieved in irrigation storage tanks. Under ambient conditions, 8 ppm is typically the maximum. The saturation correlates with the depth of the tank. Sustained high DO readings in excess of a week are obtainable in common open-top irrigation tanks. Find out why oxygen infusion as part of your irrigation plan can make a big difference to your grow operation. Increasing the amount of Dissolved Oxygen in your irrigation water allows more vigorous, crazy root growth. Roots climb out of their grow bags, resulting in increased plant growth.
How Mass Transfer Fiber Works
Inside the TOOB is a proprietary “fiber module cluster,” created from mass transfer fiber. How porous is this fiber? One cubic foot of it has 7,500 square feet of surface area. This unique material has the ability to create a large interface between the water and the oxygen, resulting in an extremely efficient infusion. As the water passes through the TOOB, it passes over the hollow oxygen-filled fibers, where it undergoes the oxygen infusion process. The oxygen pressure is managed by the grower, supersaturating the water at the desired level for any growing scenario. The water exiting the TOOB is ready to use for irrigation.
Why Dissolved Oxygen Matters
Every grower knows that water is the lifeblood of plant production. It carries nutrients and hydrates the plant, but in order for those nutrients to be efficiently absorbed by the plant, the latest research is confirming the theory that significant amounts of oxygen must be present.
Doesn’t water already contain oxygen? The average city water and well water contain Dissolved Oxygen (DO), but at a very low level of 4-8 ppm. The use of the TOOB allows the grower to control the amount of DO and find the optimal level for the application. The DO range that research indicates is optimal for most applications is 18-25 ppm.
