Heat Exchanger

Heat Exchanger

Anhydrous ammonia is one of the most efficient and widely used forms of nitrogen fertilizer. However, varying ground speed, fluctuating temperatures, and vapor generated in the delivery system can cause wide variations in application rates. These variations cost money, either by reducing yields or by increasing fertilizer expense.

A Hiniker Anhydrous Ammonia Control System equipped with a Hiniker Variable Orifice Distributor will ensure accurate application by measuring and controlling NH3 in its liquid state, all the way to the distribution point.

Ground speed and flow rate are constantly measured and relayed to the control console. The Hiniker 8160 control console can then use that information to control application rates via the Hiniker VOD variable orifice distributor, which controls flow at the distributor outlets. The NH3 is kept in a liquid state up to that point, virtually eliminating vapor in the distributor and resulting in far superior row-to-row accuracy.

The display provides simultaneous readouts of two functions at once.
  • RATE-Gallons (liquid) or pounds (NH3) per acre.

  • SPEED-Ground speed in MPH.

  • VOLUME-Total amount applied.

  • AREA-Acres covered.

  • DISTANCE-Total distance traveled.

  • VOLUME per MINUTE-Gallons or pounds per minute.

  • ERR-Percent deviation from target rate.
