Application

The new Alvan Blanch range of seed treaters have been designed primarily for on-farm use but can also be incorporated within fixed or mobile seed processing plants of modest scale. They have been developed with the full and active co-operation of a major agrochemical manufacturer and have been tested on a range of modern dressings.

Construction

The Seed Treaters incorporate a large diameter ‘U’ trough mixing chamber in heavy gauge steel, with removable galvanised steel lid and lower end clean-out door and a mixing rotor fitted with a series of inclined crescent paddles. A large feed hopper (extendable for bulk feed applications) incorporates a stainless steel outlet section for consistency of flow. The feed control device has a screw adjustment graduated scale with set position recovery quick shut-off device, incorporating a pump override switch. A probe detects grain flow.

Treated seed is conveniently discharged via a two-way bagging attachment with quick release holders. The variable speed displacement pump, which is mounted on a 100 litre moulded polypropylene chemical reserve tank, incorporates a graduated adjustment device. A manual agitator allows chemicals to be stirred in the tank. A reinforced flexible pipe delivers chemical to the injection nozzle.

Mixing chamber drive, pump and all switches are pre-wired back to a mounted control panel, featuring safety interlocked protection systems giving automatic shutdown in case of no grain, no chemical or nozzle blockage. A single-phase socket on the panel allows instant connection to a power source. Both pump and mixing chamber have single-phase motors.

Operation

A regulated flow of chemical is applied to the seed as it is fed from the feed hopper at a pre-set rate. Guidance on settings is given in the manual for each crop type. The action of the mixing chamber – in which seed continually tumbles back as well as being conveyed upwards – ensures a thorough coating of the seed.

Optional Equipment

Hopper Extension: To permit bulk feed operation.

Mixing Chamber Extension: So that discharge can be at a higher level for feeding of big bags.

Three-Phase Drive: To mixing chamber.

Stationary Versions: With floor standing frame.

Stainless Steel Construction: For special applications such as the treating of salt with iodine solution (for which a special pump is also required).
