Steam Boiler

We have been using a steam boiler since 2003 for our media sterilization. We are the first commercial plant grower in Sri Lanka who took the initiative to convert the chemical based sterilization process to an environmental friendly, non-chemical process. The boiler has the capacity of generating 800 kg of steam per hour which is capable of treating up to 28-30 m3 of growing media at a time.
