Trane Enters into Agreement with KCC Manufacturing to Serve Rapidly Growing Indoor Agriculture Market
Trane®, a leading global provider of indoor comfort and energy services solutions and a brand of Ingersoll Rand®, now offers solutions to serve the rapidly growing indoor agriculture market.
Trane has entered into an agreement with KCC Manufacturing, a leading supplier of highly efficient industrial dehumidification, energy recovery and atmospheric water generation systems for indoor agriculture and industrial applications, for exclusive access to their MSP Technology™ product line. This agreement will serve the needs of indoor agriculture markets in the United States and Canada, with Trane offering a full suite of solutions for facilities growing vegetables, herbs and legalized, licensed cannabis.
“We’re collaborating with KCC Manufacturing to combine industry experience, efficient equipment, intelligent services and comprehensive energy services to make growing facilities stronger and more profitable,” said Manlio Valdes, vice president, product management and marketing for Trane. “Our solutions give growers authority over temperature, humidity and airborne pathogens. We put control in growers’ hands, so they can manage, replicate and improve the conditions that maximize the genetic potential of their crop.”
“KCC Manufacturing’s leading-edge MSP Technology uses wrap-around, small-plate heat exchangers to dehumidify grow room environments, typically generating a 30-to-65 percent energy savings when compared to traditional dehumidification solutions,” says Cole Fisher, director of sales for KCC Manufacturing. “This allows grow owners and facility managers to reduce overall HVAC installed costs and save money on their monthly utility expenses.”
Under the agreement, solutions produced by KCC Manufacturing include high efficiency chilled water and DX air handlers providing airflow ranging from 4,000 to 12,000 cubic feet per minute. Models include both outdoor and indoor installation options.
MSP Technology product solutions are available now from Trane. To learn more, visit trane.com/indoorag or MSPTechnology.com.
