StepX Process Cycle: Agitate - Soak - Flow
The StepX-3000 features Digital Pulse Flow Control (PFC) with Variable Valve Timing (VVT)
Closed Loop - Recycle - Reclaim - Reuse
Since the StepX system uses beverage grade (soda/brewing) CO2 sources, it is environmentally no different than the bubbles from a soda fountain or when pressurizing a keg of beer. In the beverage industry, the CO2 goes straight into the atmosphere at low pressure.
The StepX machine can be closed loop and can be operated in several different ways, depending on your needs and situations. If you are a producer/processor, the used CO2 from the StepX process can be vented to your grow space with flexible tubing and a typical regulator. It can also be collected in larger agricultural containers at lower pressures for use at a later time or it can be re-compressed back into a CO2 tank using the StepX pump. However, we resist reclaiming into the original CO2 tank due to the introduction of contaminants such as pesticides, mold and water.
