MULTIPLE HOPPER SPECIFICATIONS

Microband

The unique positive displacement metering system used in Microband granular applicators allow granules of different sizes and densities to be precisely and economically applied over a wide range of application rates.  The universal system has been adapted to apply granular products on most types of planter, seeder and cultivator on crops ranging from potatoes to sugar beet.

Overview

Overview - The Microband applicator system uses single or multiples of our hopper assemblies to create applicators usually between 2 and 12 outlets. Microband uses gravity rather than a pneumatic fan to deliver the granules to their intended location. This reduces complexity and therefore cost, but also allows products to be applied where the air flow of a fan would cause problems, such as on a precision seed drill.

Hoppers – Applicators are available with single or multiples of 35, 70 or 150L hoppers. These hoppers are weather sealed and translucent, allowing hopper contents to be monitored quickly and easily. Closed transfer receivers are fitted to the hoppers lid, minimising operator exposure to chemical.

Drives - There are multiple options for driving the metering system on the Microband applicators, a heavy duty land wheel drive (which can be either end or centre mounted or a Wizard electric drive. For applicators being mounted on potato planters and precision seed drills, direct drives are available a ground speed related drive from the implements own land wheel. All systems provide excellent accuracy of application, with the Wizard having the added benefit of in cab automatic rate control.

Mountings - The Microband applicator assemblies can be used in conjunction with a wide variety of implements. At the smaller end of the scale, drive and mounting kits are available mounting a single 35L hopper on a potato planter such as the Grimme GL32B. At the larger end, we fit twelve 35L hoppers onto 36 row carrot drills to apply nematicides. Microband can also be specified with its own 3 point linkage, on which 2 hoppers of any size can be mounted, allowing application of chemicals onto a single veg or potato bed. Microband is a versatile system, if you are struggling to find an applicator to apply product give us a call!
