The right lighting
In 2014 Xing Hui Seedling started using the Philips GreenPower TLED in a part of its lab. Using this, the production fully realized Xing Hui Seedling’s hopes and the targets it aimed for. Therefore, it decided to install LED lighting in the entire lab. Since March 2016 it has used Philips’ latest product, the Philips GreenPower LED Tissue Culture Module.
Xing Hui Seedling found out that the energy usage of Philips LED lighting is much less than the energy usage of fluorescent lighting. It has a longer useable life and the light does not fade much. The LEDs also do not produce much heat, which keeps the temperature constant. Because of this and the even light distribution, the plants grow at the same rate and the quality is consistent. Since the use of Philips LED lighting, Xing Hui Seedling’s power usage decreased by 40%.
The LEDs that Xing Hui Seedling uses have a red and white formula. The red light is beneficial for the growth of the plants, while the white light makes work easier by providing a good degree of color. Further, the integrated and compact design made it easy to increase the number of production layers, allowing Xing Hui Seedling to use its space more efficiently.
