- Calculated at Checkout
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. The GEN-1e and GEN-2e can also be easily converted from propane to natural gas or vise-versa in less than 10 minutes with an inexpensive kit. 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. There is no need to purchase a different generator if your needs increase!
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is one of the easiest ways to accelerate plant growth. Plants grown with supplemental CO2 can produce up to 35% 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-1 and the GEN-2. The GEN-1 is recommended for small to medium size areas up to 15’ x 15’. The GEN-2 is recommended for larger areas up to 50’ x 50’. They both come with a standard tipswitch that will shut down the fuel to the main burner in the event the unit falls or tips over. The Electronic Ignition Module creates a spark to light the burners.
The GEN-1e is capable of producing between 3 and 13 cubic feet of CO2 per hour. It comes standard with 4 burners, producing approximately 13 cubic feet of CO2 per hour. You can remove burners, decreasing the unit’s flow rate. Each burner produces approximately 3 cubic feet of CO2 per hour.
