The MERCURY air system is connected via a heavy duty gearbox designed to drive a large fan at high power, to optimise efficient air throughput. The 650mm or 850mm fan features shock and fragmentation-resistant composite fan blades, connected to the gearbox via a centrifugal clutch for smooth engagement. The streamlined polyethylene fan housing is aerodynamically optimised, with a clutch dome and air vanes to improve airflow and distribution around the fan. The fan housing itself provides maximum impact resistance and safety.
Axial fan MERCURY can be fitted with large stainless steel tree or vine deflectors, designed to maximise spray to the target and minimise off-target drift. Adjustable deflectors with top vanes provide extra control over the spray, allowing less to escape over the tops of the target plants. Large adjustable bottom deflectors direct spray away from the ground and up into the underside of the canopy. Turbine fans can be connected to a number of hydro-pneumatic air-sheer systems that target low volume spray directly into the plants with outstanding control, canopy penetration and drift. These include arrayed spray heads with 2 to 5 nozzles, the convergent COVAMAX system, and the high velocity CANNON.
