Cross secation of a Type 2 tray.
Type 2 is a new alternative to the well known type 1, where the drainage channels only are placed alongside the tray. The channels are smaller, but the amount has been increased compared to type 1 which ensures the same good quality of water distribution and draining. It makes type 2 suitable for cultivation in small pots. Furthermore it makes the cleaning easier, as the omission of the cross channels makes it easier to sweep and wash the dirt off the bench trays.
Type 2 is delivered in the widths from 1200 to 1720 mm, lengths from 2500 to 6230 mm, in the width by 5 mm intervals, the length 10 mm. That all together makes 37.300 different sizes. Type 2 is delivered standard with valve sump in one or both ends. Furthermore can type 2 also be delivered with valve sum in the middle of the tray, or in other places needed. Contact us for further information or special wishes.
Like the type 1 trays, type 2 is delivered with the unique design of drainage channels which minimizes the "border-effect" with dry culture alongside the bench tray rims. The border-effect is minimized by ensuring a 2 mm higher water level & thereby a longer watering time for the cultures along the edges which results in a more uniform culture. See the drawing (shown with type 1 tray).
