GHBD Holland In-line Vortex fertilizer injection and irrigation unit.
Injection systems for fertilizers are the standard in various markets”. GHBD Holland responds to this.
The in-line fertilizer injection units are perfect for giving small amounts of water and for regularly changing recipes and concentrations. A mixing tank unit is less suitable for this, hence an injection unit. This unit is also ideal for filling a day’s supply tanks.
Vortex mixing chamber
The in-line injection unit works with a stainless steel mixing chamber where the fertilizers and possibly acid or lye are injected by means of venturis. According to the Vortex principle, turbulence is created in the mixing chamber in which the fertilizers are dosed. Fertilizers and acid / lye remain in the mixing chamber for a certain period of time and thus mix optimally, so that the correct and stable EC and pH value of the irrigation water is guaranteed.
The all-in-one injection module is unique, developed in close collaboration with a Dutch supplier of valves. Venturi, dosing valve, fine adjustment and non-return valve are integrated in one module. Assembly and maintenance is therefore very easy due to a minimum of parts. The injection module is adjustable from 0 to 600 liters / hour.
Irrigation units actually all look the same, a welded frame or a frame built from aluminum standard components. GHBD Holland, together with a constructor and designer, has examined this way of building. We quickly came to the conclusion that this can be done differently using new techniques such as laser cutting and computer-controlled typesetting. The result is a completely stainless steel unit with integrated injection modules and control cabinet. This gives the unit a short assembly and installation time. The whole has an industrial look.
The in-line version has a capacity of 4 to 30 m3 / hour, depending on the pressure. AB acid / lye dosing with two fertilizer recipes (AB1 and AB2) and is therefore extremely suitable for small and medium-sized companies. A bypass version will soon be available so that the capacity can be increased to above 100m3 / hour.
The GHBD Holland In-line fertilizer dosing and irrigation unit is supplied as a standalone unit as standard. The control is realized by a computer developed by Sercom control technology B.V. from Lisse, The Netherlands. Sercom is a leading supplier of computers for horticulture, bulb cultivation and storage technology and has exclusively put together a system specifically for this unit for GHBD Holland. It is of course possible to prepare the unit for other computer systems. The components of these suppliers are installed by us, so that the unit can be controlled and monitored by an existing process computer.
Installation and service
GHBD Holland does business with installers worldwide. These partners install the systems, provide user training and provide service and aftersales. We don’t have partners in all horticultural areas yet, so if anyone is interested, let us know.
A nice product for a good price. Years of experience and the use of proven technology guarantee a perfectly functioning unit. The systems are easy to install and commission. We can monitor our systems via the internet and thus support our end users and partners.
This in-line system is one in a series, a bypass version and a mixing tank system will follow shortly. The great thing is that all units are built from modules, which makes production easy. The supply pump and filter module are good examples of this.
The techniques we use are quite unique. We also sell the mixing chambers and dosing modules separately to installers who like to use these components in their own systems. Not a problem for us, as the entire horticulture sector benefits from the best techniques.
