Agsco / GAP Air Keg
Applicator Upgrade Kits
Air powered kegs are widely used for shipping seed treatments. They provide a safe, simple means of transporting product. Unfortunately, they provide very limited means of applying the product onto the seed with any accuracy or uniformity, defeating the purpose of the exercise.
Accordingly, we have introduced new applicator upgrade options for AGSCO, GAP or similar air keg units. The upgrade kits increase the application accuracy of keg delivery systems dramatically, by providing improved chemical and seed delivery accuracy, plus greatly improved application uniformity.
Upgrade kits include the applicator, 30' of 1/2" connecting poly tubing with the A4S kit, 12' with the G3 kit, the control system with glycerine filled gauge and control valve; and calibrated setting charts for most popular application products.
Air kegs normally deliver dripper chemical application (type 2), which is quite poor.
- Adding the A4S applicator upgrade kit moves them up to a type #3B applicator (calibrated nozzle in auger).
- Adding the G3 applicator upgrade kit will take them up to a type #4 applicator system (calibrated nozzle + uniform seed application).
- The TX7E seed flow control auger supplies accurate seed flow to the G3 applicator, providing the necessary precise seed flow control for high accuracy treating.
- A Pressure control kit is also available for customers who have both an air keg and applicator. (no applicator or calibrations included.)
AGSCO kegs are pressure limited to 30 psi by the micromatic coupling on the keg, so will have reduced grain flow capability compared to using our P2 or P4 chemical application systems.
Kits are available factory direct, or from our normal retailer group.
