MILWAUKEE, Wis., June 10, 2020 - PRESS RELEASE- Desert Aire announced June 10 the launch of the latest in its GrowAire Series of products for the indoor cannabis cultivation market: the DriCure system, a climate control system for cannabis drying rooms. DriCure is a single unit solution designed for a production-level drying facility and is designed for year round operation.
“Desert Aire designed GrowAire DriCure specifically for cannabis drying room applications,” said Paul Stewart, vice president of sales for Desert Aire. “It is an extension of the GrowAire Series product line that helps cultivators ensure they optimize the final step to their cultivation process.”
The DriCure solution is a vapor-compression refrigeration cycle-based unit designed to remove the moisture held by the plant after harvest. The DriCure unit will control the temperature and humidity during the drying process.
DriCure is designed for a typical drying room application where the harvested crop needs to dry in 5 to 10 days. Using DriCure, the plant will lose about 40% of its total weight in the first 24 hours and then the system slowly removes the remaining water over the remaining drying period. Sized for the average moisture load per hour that will occur over the first day of drying, the unit will run constantly for the first 12 hours of drying at full capacity and then cycle to maintain optimal conditions.
