NEW PUMP, NOZZLE AND PRECISION AG PRODUCTS FROM PENTAIR HYPRO AT CEREALS 201726-May-2017 Pentair (Hypro EU)
Pentair Hypro will show their new range of 9310 Series Centrifugal Pumps with ForceField Technology at Cereals 2017 on stand 126. These hydraulically driven centrifugal pumps are simple in design, with higher capacity, lighter weight and more compact dimensions than similar capacity diaphragm pumps.
The new Forcefield seals now provide the ultimate in dry run protection as a fail-safe for automatic systems, preventing costly downtime by protecting the mechanical seal for the shaft that drives the centrifugal pump’s spinning impeller against failure due to running dry or chemical bonding failures.
Also on a working nozzle display will be the 3D nozzle which has been tuned to eliminate the smallest driftable droplets as well as larger droplets that do not give effective target coverage. It also inclines the spray to effectively cover both front and back of the target. The result is improved spray coverage and proven increases in weed control of up to 6% as well as a reduction of spray drift helping to gain more spray days when they are really needed.
A working demonstration of the ProStop-E nozzle valve will also be on display. This electrically-actuated nozzle valve allows individual nozzle control for precise matching of spray swaths and can virtually eliminate spray overlaps. Reductions of 2.5% in sprayed area and therefore the overall chemical and liquid fertiliser bill have been recorded in initial farm-scale trials.
