Dave Donohoe, Breeza Industrial:

“Customized airflow plans optimize conditions at every stage of crop development”

"We don't just sell fans and let growers place them wherever. We provide customized air flow plans for each individual room. This computer-generated plan takes into consideration other equipment, canopy, and all the other factors that make each grower's cultivation room unique," says Dave Donohoe, Sales Engineer at Breeza Industrial. The company offers a broad range of airflow solutions. "The airflow plans we make predict high and low pressures throughout a room so that we can eliminate microclimates. We also provide growers a tool that can adjust the velocity of the air going over their plants."

Generating higher yields through airflow
Dave explains that several things need to be taken into consideration when it comes to airflow for cannabis growers. "You don't want the same airflow in week 1 of flowering as in week 4. The reason I got into this industry is because I saw cannabis growers struggling with that. They installed airflow systems that would work great until the plants started to grow," Dave says. "When the plants are short, there's very little airflow obstruction. As those plants grow, they create an obstruction that is going to short-circuit the airflow." Therefore, Breeza Industrial has created a system that is able to overcome those factors progressively as the plants grow. "Our systems are designed to continue to be able to circulate the air properly while delivering the airflow at the crop that growers want. That has resulted in significantly higher yields for our customers by being able to use the optimal airflow at every stage of the crop development."

With energy efficiency being a major concern for many growers, the company has got that covered as well. "Our systems allow growers to run slower air speeds at earlier stages in the crop development. Therefore, they're using a lot less energy at the start of production. Moreover, we use electronically commutated motors (ECM) to power our fans, which is more energy efficient than brush motors," Dave says. "In fact, many growers have even been able to downsize their HVAC systems when using our fans."

Helping growers
Las Vegas-based Urth & Fyre is one of the growers that has been using the fans. So far, they've seen great results, according to Trevor Christensen (Founder and Operator). "In the dynamic world of CEA and commercial cannabis cultivation, precision and reliability are paramount. The Breeza Ag Fan stands out as a testament to innovation and quality craftsmanship," Trevor says. "Utilizing state-of-the-art HAF technology coupled with Variable Speed ECM motors, it offers unparalleled control over airflow, allowing growers to optimize conditions at every stage of crop development. With a commitment to longevity and quality evident in its stainless steel parts and impeccable design, the Breeza Ag Fan ensures consistent performance and peace of mind. Backed by stellar customer service, it's a trusted ally for cannabis operators navigating the complexities of cultivation. The facility was designed in collaboration with Urth and Fyre and Breeza airflow engineer Dave Donohoe, it's a cornerstone of success for any facility," Trevor says.
