Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is one of the easiest ways to accelerate plant growth. Plants grown with supplemental CO2 can produce up to 40% more flowers or fruit. A propane or natural gas CO2 generator is the most cost effective way to add CO2 to your environment. Many greenhouses use CO2 generators to boost CO2 levels safely and economically.C.A.P. has developed some of the safest and most reliable CO2 Generators. They are capable of producing between 3 and 26 cubic feet of CO2 per hour. C.A.P. manufactures 2 models, The GEN-1e and the GEN-2e. The GEN-1e is recommended for small to medium size areas up to 15’ x 15’. The GEN-2e is recommended for larger areas up to 30’ x 30.Both the GEN-1e and the GEN-2e units feature a Pilotless Electronic Ignition, instead of the traditional "pilot light." They both come with a standard "tip-over" switch will shut down the fuel to the main burner in the event the unit falls or tips over.
The C.A.P. CO2 generators are constructed of powder coated steel enclosures that resist moisture, rust and discoloration. They will provide years of trouble-free operation. The GEN-1e and GEN-2e are manufactured in the USA using only AGA and/or UL listed components that are appropriate for use with both propane and natural gas. The units come complete with a low-pressure, in-line Natural gas regulator or the new Type1 style "no-tool-required" propane regulator that makes tank replacement easy. C.A.P. CO2 generators operate up to 100 degrees cooler than other competitive products. Both the GEN-1e and GEN-2e CO2 generators are expandable! This allows you to increase the unit`s capacity to produce CO2 simply by installing additional burners. Each burner increases the CO2 generating capacity by approximately 3 cubic feet per hour.
The GEN-2e is capable of producing between 16 and 26 cubic feet of CO2 per hour. It comes standard with 5 burners, producing approximately 16 cubic feet of CO2 per hour. You can add up to 3 additional burners, increasing the unit’s capacity to up to approximately 26 cubic feet of CO2 per hour.
A Propane Crossover (LXO-1) is available which will allow you to connect 2 propane tanks to your generator and run off of either or both tanks.
