RDWC Systems

The next generation ALIEN® RDWC systems have many new features and are available in either the “Black Series” or “PRO Silver Series”

The fittings are now threaded and secured with rubber washers and nuts making system installation and relocation easier. Heavy duty clips situated on the sides of the pots elevate the airlines off of the floor.

The Net Pot is much improved and is now manufactured in Supersoft™ material to avoid root damage. The square design suits rockwool cubes, but it remains round on the outside so rotation is still possible. The base includes a raised grid to lift the cube slightly to avoid being over saturated.

All RDWC systems now come with factory fitted chiller fittings on the side of the header making chiller installation simple.

The new Jet-Stream™ air pumps have been designed with Deep Water Culture in mind and boast a high pressure while still retaining low noise and wattage. They feature a double damping system for noise absorption and the twin air chambers produce a large quantity of air at a strong pressure.

CAMO® Tanks are included in the kit to keep the optimum nutrient solution level maintained.

What’s the difference between the “Black Series” and “PRO Silver Series”?

PRO Silver Series features

The patent pending Dual-Flow™ fittings are an oversized 50mm for a more free flowing system. These fittings are over 3x the internal size of the 32mm.

Heat-reflective silver 50mm pipe is used vs the Black Series green 32mm.

Ball valves and heavy duty inline filters are included with the Silver Series.

The pots and lids are also produced from heat-reflective silver polymer. This helps to keep nutrient solution temperatures cooler and relives the water chiller from having to work as hard.

The PRO Silver Series incorporate JET-STREAM A.I.R™ (Air Injection Rings). Air pump and airline sizes are increased to supply the Rings with a strong pressure to achieve maximum oxygen saturation.

RDWC Application

Recirculating Deep Water Culture is a method used to grow plants with roots submerged in a highly oxygenated nutrient solution.

By using the ALIEN® RDWC hydroponic system you can optimise maximum growth potential. The super oxygenated nutrient solution is constantly recirculated around the system. The water pump creates a current which draws the solution through the pots, mixing the nutrients. This current also delivers the vital nutrients to the roots, optimising root health and increasing nutrient uptake efficiency. Importantly, PH and EC levels are continuously maintained due to the high volume of water contained in the system.
