Aeroponic system

IY Twist’s plant production formulas, or plant recipes, incorporate the following elements to grow a specific plant variety:

  • Irrigation regime
  • Light intensity and duration
  • Nutrient content and concentrations
  • Environmental conditions, e.g. temperature, humidity and CO2

Our goal is to build farms that are simple, cost-effective, and easily scalable. We consider everything from rack design to irrigation mechanics, from process flow to refrigeration needs to design high-yield farms that adhere to high standards of food safety and resource conservation. The major part includes:

  • LED spectrum selection
  • Plant Production Formulas
  • Automation
  • Data Collection

System features:
• 1m² growing area per Grow Bed
• Self-draining, with wipe clean surfaces
• Nozzle free
• Food-safe and UV stable

Aeroponic system: 4 tier

IY Twsit’s patented aeroponic technology produces fresh, healthy plants 70% faster than in a typical hydroponic system, is wipe-clean and fully automatable. Our four layer stacks are perfect for urban and vertical farming projects where they save space and improve efficiency.

Dimensions:
Systems are offered in units of 24m², 48m² and 96m²
Height: 2.4m

System features:
• 1m² growing area per Grow Bed
• Self-draining, with wipe clean surfaces
• Nozzle free
• Food-safe and UV stable
• Integrated LED Grow Lights

Modular aeroponic farm

The Modular Aeroponic Farm packages

IY Twist systems of standardised growing area into a climate-controlled chamber, which can easily be deployed into any underutilised indoor space. This is the complete vertical farming system that efficiently scales with your business; simply add additional modules as you grow.

Each module is turnkey and can be used anywhere in the world – from cities to deserts.

Dimensions:
Size options: 24m², 48m² & 96m²
Height: 2.68m external height and 2.5m internal height

System features:

• Climate-controlled growth chamber• 1m² growing area per Aeroponic Grow Bed
• Self-draining, with wipe clean surfaces
• Nozzle free
• Food-safe and UV stable
• Integrated LED Grow Lights

IY Plant

Our farm management software IY Plant is breaking down barriers to entry for indoor farming and aeroponics. It is a farm management toolbox, providing automated control, data collection and organisational tools for growers. It can provide agile, closed-loop control for indoor and vertical farms remotely and be used to optimise plant growth.

Ostara provides two main functions:

IY Plant control
• Automated growing
• Optimise conditions for crops

Management features
• Data collection
• Crop growth analysis
• Trace crop history

IY Twist’s aeroponic systems

IY Twist’s aeroponic systems are built from multiple different products, all packaged together into a highly-efficient growing operation.

Each system utilises our patented technology to bathe plant roots in a nutrient-dense mist. This enables free gas exchange and results in a 70% increase in growth rate over hydroponic systems. Due to water recapture and reuse, the IY Twist system uses 95% less water than traditional agriculture, needs no pesticides and can be set up anywhere in the world: from cities to deserts.

Each system places IY Twist’s unique Aeroponic Grow Beds under a light source, which could be the sun or LED lamps. Each Grow Bed is modular and easily linked together, to enable you to quickly scale-up the size of your farming operation. We’ve designed all Grow Beds to be nozzle-free, easy to clean andto automate via our IY Plant software platform.


How do you install a system?

If you already have a greenhouse or indoor farm, then we can integrate a Single or Four-tier aeroponic system into your existing infrastructure. This does not include heating and ventilation (HVAC) or exterior cladding of the growing area, but is a very cost-effective method of enhancing the productivity of your existing operation.

If you are starting from scratch, then we offer a turnkey solution – the Modular Aeroponic Farm. This packages aeroponic systems of standardised growing area into a climate-controlled growth chamber, which can easily be deployed into any underutilised indoor space. For example, barn, warehouse or retail floor area.
