Ag & Tobacco Rooms

Ag & Tobacco Rooms / Walk-Ins


Parameter designs and manufactures the ideal rooms for testing products in the agriculture and tobacco industries. Our conditioning systems and custom configurations offer both precise control and multiple monitoring options for industries where new standards and regulations are coming into play.

Whether it is testing of raw product, filters, processing equipment or finished product, Parameter’s experience in regulated industries makes us the perfect resource for rooms that will meet your strict temperature and humidity needs. Applications of Parameter equipment for agriculture and tobacco includes smoking machines and rooms for tobacco sample conditioning.

Custom Design

Parameter designs and manufactures rooms in our North Carolina facility to operate at the specific requirements and exact sizes you’ve specified. To ensure product integrity, Parameter assembles and thoroughly tests all systems prior to shipment and provides complete installation and on-site start-up instruction anywhere in the world.

Parameter is fully capable of upgrading any brand of existing rooms. Due to the flexibility of the Parameter conditioning systems we can also condition your existing rooms.

Rooms are built using modular insulated panels with either a 32 R-value (four inch) or a 40 R-value (five inch) to maximize efficiencies and uniformity. We can provide options for stainless steel construction, dryers, and air and water filters if needed.


Parameter room and chambers use a unique method of controlling moisture to attain unmatched levels of humidity and temperature control and uniformity. Unlike many other manufacturers, Parameter’s humidity methodology does not use vapor generators or atomizers as a humidity source. Instead, our dew point generating system achieves superior levels of humidity performance.

See an explanation of the Parameter system at Humidity Control 101.

The Parameter Smart Pad controller is a user-friendly system that provides control for the conditioning units. The Smart Pad is equipped with direct readings in both temperature and humidity, and features 60-segment programming for automatic cycling and also ramping and soaking excursions. High-low or deviation alarms are standard as well as a serial communications port. Take a closer look at the Smart Pad.
