ELI VOLPE

The distribution unit is intended for use on tree crops (vineyards and orchards) trained using the trellis method. For its deployment it must be installed on a support structure that must also supply the crop protection product. It can also be attached to a swinging arm for use on tall trees. The device consists of a vertical, elliptical structure specially designed to generate a uniform flow of air to the 7 nozzles placed vertically inside the air outlet unit. The flow of air is generated by an axial fan with vertical axis located in the upper part of the structure. This solution avoids the picking up of leaves and vegetation during work, thus preventing the obstruction of the grille, which would reduce fan performance. The fan is operated by a hydraulic motor fitted directly to the pivot axis of the fan blower. Fan speed can be adjusted by varying oil pressure (Tab. 1). Inside the air outlet unit are deflectors for directing the outflow along the vertical axis: it is thus possible to obtain a horizontal flow, upwards and downwards. It is possible to adjust the upper and lower parts of the flow separately.The “ELI VOLPE” distribution unit is also equipped with a container that collects any product that drips from the nozzles during spraying, thus preventing it from falling on the ground.

Available in two versions:

  • single outlet
  • double outlet 

CAN BE USED  STAND-ALONE.

COST-EFFECTIVENESS and ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT: our sprayers require a lower power intake than most similar products and can be used with smaller tractors with considerable savings. Moreover, ELI VOLPE technology allows for chemical and water waste reduction with a significantly low environmental impact.
