New Raven anhydrous application system increases capacity
Raven Industries Applied Technology Division introduced the Accuflow Vortex system, the newest and most accurate NH3 delivery system in an industry-leading lineup of application controls. The Accuflow Vortex is a first-of-its-kind anhydrous ammonia application system that has increased capacity within a single cooler, which maximizes applicator time and creates a smaller footprint on the toolbar. Raven application control products are ISObus compatible, giving customers additional control options while reducing cab clutter.
“Application control is at the core of what we do, and our customers are calling for higher speeds, longer application windows, and larger toolbars when applying anhydrous. The Accuflow Vortex meets these needs by allowing growers and custom applicators to apply more anhydrous at faster speeds and colder temperatures, with less weight on the toolbar. The system also comes pre-assembled, saving applicators even more time. The Vortex makes an already short application window that much more manageable,” says Matt Burkhart, vice president and general manager of Raven’s Applied Technology Division.
In addition, Raven is introducing their new AccuFlow HP+ system, which includes the Vortex cooler and a dynamically controlled pump for even greater capacity and precise application. Accuflow Vortex will be featured at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ky., and at other upcoming tradeshows. The system will be available for purchase in early March, 2014.
