FlowMaster Liquid Applicator

The FlowMaster range of liquid applicators is purpose built for applying preservatives to various crops and has proved to be thoroughly reliable in use. Used for additives that have a typical application rate of 1 litre per tonne or higher, the FlowMaster is designed to fit in a 200 litre barrel, but can also be used in IBCs. For smaller containers a short reach option can be made to special order. Open flow outputs are as follows: Low volume applicator 0.5-4 litres per minute High volume applicator 1-10 litres per minute Extra high volume applicator 8-15 litres per minute For Crimping or Propcorn moist grain treatments see our Crimpmaster applicator.

FlowMaster Liquid Silage Preservative Applicator

The Flowmaster range of liquid applicators are robust reliable stem pumps built for applying various types of liquid preservative additives to all types of crops. Including bacterial inoculants and propionic (propcorn) type acids.

The Flowmaster is suited to all types of forage harvester self-propelled or trailed, forage wagons and balers.

Other applications the FlowMaster has been used for are: Applying supplements and preservatives to Total Mixed Rations (TMR) in feeder wagons, seed dressings and insect repelents to stored grain.

The basic FlowMaster kit

The basic kit includes our own 12-volt in cab controller, 10 meters of tubing, 10 meters of electrical cable, foot filter, single nozzle holder and a selection of jets.

There are also a selection of optional accessories available depending on what type of equipment the FlowMaster will be used on. Theses include: -

Graduated Flowmeters
Additional nozzle holders and jets
Anti-siphoning solenoid
Auto cut-off switch

The FlowMaster and self-propelled or trailed forage harvester

If fitting to a self propelled harvester we would recommend the High volume FlowMaster (0.5 – 10 litres/minute open flow) and for trailed machines the low volume FlowMaster (0.5 – 4 litres/minute open flow).

The addition of a Flowmeters with a graduated scale from 1-10 gives a good visual indication of additive flowing through the system and will alert you to blockages or empty tanks.

The FlowMaster and Forage wagons

Forage wagon pick-up rates can be quite high and the poor nature of the additive getting mixed with the grass in the same way as it would in a harvester requires that you achieve a good coverage over the width of the swath . For these reasons we would recommend the high volume FlowMaster kit with the addition of two or four jets. In almost all cases it will be necessary to fit an anti syphoning solenoid valve assembly in the system. Typicaly the tank will be mounted higher than the jets so siphoning of the additive will occur.

As with forage harvesters a Flowmeter is an optional extra that is well worth considering.

The FlowMaster and Balers

The low volume FlowMaster will be adequate for applying all types of liquid preservative additive to silage, hay and straw bales. As with the forage wagon it is important to provide a good coverage of the additive over the swath. This is especially important when the bales are not going to be wrapped.

If applying inoculant bacterial types of additive to silage or haylage bales that will be wrapped then a minimum of a twin jet system should be used. If applying propionic (propcorn) type acids to hay or straw then a four jet system should be used to get the best coverage over the swath.

Thru-beam crop detection system

Selmech Supplies can now offer a thru-beam crop detection system in a kit form. This will work in conjunction with existing Selmech speed controllers to automatically turn the applicator on and off when crop is detected at the point of pick-up.
