AMAZONE - USA
Accurate metering and simple operation
The FDC Fertiliser Delivery Cart is equipped with a speed-related spray liquid pump that makes possible the very accurate metering of application rates between 40 and 300 l/ha. Accurate control is achieved via the AmaSpray+ in-cab terminal. Working speeds up to 20 km/h can be achieved. The Fertiliser Delivery Cart is filled by a separate, motor-driven filling pump with a filling rate of 500 l/min.
The liquid fertiliser is pumped through hoses to the coulters on the seed drill. The fertiliser hoses are carefully routed and they are protected by protective cladding from stone impacts and damage. The liquid fertiliser is applied through a special outlet at the sowing coulter. In order to prevent dripping at the headland, each outlet is equipped with its anti-drip diaphragm. Each outlet also has an appropriately-large metering disc, depending on the application rate.
The liquid circuit is very easily operated using the control panel on the left-hand side of the machine, which is already familiar from the AMAZONE crop protection sprayers. Suction and pressure filters in the liquid circuit remove impurities in the liquid fertiliser and ensure high application reliability.
