MICRO-GRANULAR FERTILISER & AVADEX OPTIONS

Twin Air

Horstine Twin Air applies oilseed rape and slug pellets simultaneously without the need for premixing the products. The unique metering system allows the operator to precisely control product application tailored to individual soil conditions, crop variety and slug populations. Twin Air can also apply micro-granular fertilisers in place of one of the above products. Another common use for Twin Air is the application of Avadex on rolls up to 12m wide.

Overview

Stainless Steel Hopper - Twin Air features a unique stainless steel internally split hopper, enabling the application of up to two products without the need for premixing.  A variable position partition allows the 300L hopper to be split to carry either a 50/50 or 33/67 product ratio. Low level sensors are available to warn the operator via the in cab controller when the hopper is below 15% full.

Hydraulic Metering - The Twin Air’s positive displacement metering units are driven by either a single or twin hydraulic motors. For growers wishing to apply a fixed ratio of seed to slug pellets, a single hydraulic motor drives the metering units for both products.  In this situation, if the oilseed rape rate is increased, the slug pellet rate increases proportionally by the same amount. Where seed and slug pellet rates require individually tailoring for field conditions, crop varieties or slug populations, the twin hydraulic drives are used to meter seed and pellets individually.

Automatic Rate Control - Horstine’s Wizard automatic rate controller is used to precisely adjust metering rotation speed to compensate for alterations in implement speed. A Twin Air specified with one metering drive motor uses a single Wizard controller, for applicators specified with Independent Product Control (twin drive motors) two Wizards controllers are used, one per product. An optional upgrade for the Twin Air is the Apollo rate controller, which allows one controller to control both products, this controller also is variable rate ready, allowing seeding to a predetermined map.

Product Application -Twin Air is fitted as standard with two eight outlet metering units. Each outlet can be blanked off where necessary to work in conjunction with a wide variety of cultivators. A hydraulically driven fan applies products uniformly and evenly on cultivators up to 6m in width and can apply Avadex at widths of up to 12m. A range of application outlets are available to apply seed or pellets in bands or broadcast across the width of the implement. An optional implement lift switch automatically controls product application as the machine is lifted in and out of work.
