Galcon’s FertiJet is a by-pass mixing machine with direct injection that includes Galcon’s Galileo controller and EC/pH control. The FertiJet models do not include main tubing such as main valve, water meter, filter etc.
According to need, our customers can choose from four models:
- FertiJet standard
This model contains up to four 350L/H fertilizer pumps and one 160L/H fertilizer pump (for acid).
The 160L/H is identical to the 350L/H Venturi with a special acid flow meter up to 160L/H.
- FertiJet High Flow
This model has up to four, 1200L/H fertilizer pumps and one (acid) 350L/H fertilizer pump (for acid).
Capable of injecting fertilizer into a flow of up to 250 cubic meters per hour at a rate of 5 liters per cubic meter.
- FertiJet double High Flow
Two FertiJet High Flow machines are connected and controlled together.
This model uses double fertilizer pumps of 1,200L/H
It can contain up to four channels of 2,500L/H and one 1,200L/H for acid.
It is capable of fertilizing at flow rate of up to 500 cubic meters per hour at a rate of 5L/H.
- Mainline Pressure
This model handles up to 4 bars.
Higher pressure models are available via special order.
All FertiJet machines have the following machine components:
- A strong, modular, non-corrosive frame out of Aluminium
- PVC non-corrosive piping and fittings
- All necessary connections (electric cables) ready for use including a starter for the booster pump.
FertiJet machines include two kinds of pumps: a Venturi pump and a booster pump.
A Venturi pump is a T-shape device with a unique nozzle inside. It converts the speed of the water into suction and causes the fertilizer to mix in the water. Models include a standard model of 350 l/hr and a high flow model of 1,200 l/hr.
|Electric valves||Installed on the entrance of the machine.
Connected to the controller.
Controlled by the controller.
|Controller||Calculates the required injection rate and operates the solenoid accordingly|
|Changing rate||1-2 second working/pausing time|
|Flow meter||Transparent conic tube with a ball inside that rises according to the momentary flow rate of the fertilizer.
Includes a small valve for adjustment of the flow rate.
|Fertimeter (optional)||Sends pulses to the controller|
|Fertilization||According to volume|
|Hydraulic valve||Normally closed to prevent leakage of fertilizer into the empty line when the system is idle|
The booster pump is an electric stainless steel (non-corrosive) pump, ranging from 2HP up to 25HP. It enables high speed flow through the Venturi for suction of the fertilizer. In the FertiJet itself, it also builds up irrigation water pressure.
- Electric pressure stat prevents any operation in the electric pump in “no water” cases.
- The pressure sustaining valve prevents cavity in the electric pump.
- Level sensor for automation and information.
The EC/pH system includes a sampling cell with two electrodes EC and pH that are connected to an electronic monitor. The monitor converts the electrodes signal to a standard 4-20 mA signal that is read by the Galileo controller. The monitor is equipped with a display and a keyboard for constant and clear presentation of data during operations. The monitor also enables calibration of the electrode readings.
