Titan Enterprises reports on how Selmech Supplies Ltd has integrated the 800 Series flow meter into their silage additive applicator systems to ensure precise dosing of these additives.
Addition of a preservative to forage crops is a common practice to prevent degradation but also to improve palatability for the animals that feed on them. Historically aggressive chemicals were added in fairly high volumes requiring very large fluid tanks or frequent refilling during harvesting. Modern silage additives tend to be applied at ever lower levels but must be applied at a rate which very accurately matches the harvesting yield and conditions. To achieve successful results it is important the additive is applied at the correct dosing level. Too little and the desired result is not achieved, too much and expensive product is wasted.
To address this challenge, Selmech Supplies Ltd. turned to Titan Enterprises to work with them to develop a new generation of semi-automated additive applicator able to precisely measure additive flow rates and adjust pump drive levels to maintain correct application levels.
