Acid and Fertiliser Dosing Rig
The use of acid dosing to correct the PH level of irrigation water is a well proven technology. Water at the correct PH level allows the plants to take up the trace elements vital to their growth and avoids lock-up of nutrients in the soil.
Inline Fertiliser Dosing
This system is normally installed on the suction side of the irrigation pump and up to 7 stop tanks can be used. It can be operated as a stand alone system, or connected to an irrigation controller with up to 15 recipes available for each program. Venturis are used with flow rates of up to 3 litres per minute, giving a reliable and rugged design. The high and low flow rates can be supported and EC can be accurately controlled from 0.2 to 5.0 mS. A small pump is used to drive the venture system and a flow meter (optional) for a very accurate control of the EC level/flow. Multiple alarms are incorporated into the programs, and therefore safety is guaranteed. There are several variations of this rig available, even an acid dosing system.
The Mix Tank System
The Mix tank system is installed on the delivery side of the irrigation pump, and requires a fill pump to pump water through the rig, as shown. This system can be used for acid only, or acid & fertiliser dosing. Venturis are used for fertiliser dosing, which inject rates of up to 3 ltrs per minute i.e. minimum of moving parts providing a very reliable and rugged design. PH correction can be accurately controlled down to 5.6, no seals or moving parts are used in contact with the concentrated acid and human involvement is minimal. Acid is always contained safely in the Acid Storage Barrel. The standard rig comes complete with 2 fertiliser intakes that can be increased to 4. This rig supports flow rates of up to 24cu.mtr per hour, allowing accurate control over wide range of flow rates. Multiple alarm conditions are built in to each system so your plants are safe. If connected to an irrigation controller, 16 different fertiliser recipes can be assigned to different irrigation programs. The mix tank system can also be used to dose your water storage tank.
