Research Report: Chemical Handling Units

Introduction

A range of chemical handling units have been inspected by the Kondinin Group's Research Team.

Kondinin Group has inspected a range of chemical batching systems, reviewing their features, capability, construction and safety.

Researchers Mark Saunders, Josh Giumelli and Ben White travelled across the country assessing products from Beverley Hydraboom, Goldacres, Hayes, TSI Beacon, Croplands, Burando Hill, Flashvat, SureFire, and GNS Engineering.

When looking at increasing the efficiency of spraying operations, many farmers probably focus on the sprayer itself, rather than ancillary equipment such as a chemical batching system.

There is no doubt you can get more hectares covered in a given time period by using a wider boom spray with larger tank,
and by travelling faster. But the tradeoff may be the quality of the job and the efficacy of the product.

An efficient chemical batching setup can improve refill turnaround times, improving paddock efficiency and spray efficacy, not to mention operator safety.

Time with machinery idle during filling and transfer is time that could be spent spraying, so any improvement to chemical
handling is a win for the bottom line, as well as an improvement in personal safety.

And better mixing of products, especially dry products, not only improves the quality of product applied during spraying operations, but also reduces the risk of downtime through blocked filters and nozzles.
