The client is using centrifugal iron pumps to load the fumigation boom spray from the mobile supply and mixing tanks. This load lasted between 36 and 38 minutes in the field to transfer all the liquid from the tank to the boom spray tank. The useful life of the pumping equipment was very low due to abrasion and high corrosivity of some of the products used in the applications that affect the material of the pumps. The equipment must work with a hydraulic motor which is coupled to a point of the tractor that operates it.
A chemical compatibility analysis was performed to determine the appropriate material of manufacture of the equipment and mechanical seal required for the application. The expectation of the loading time of the spray boom in the field was analyzed with the client. The selection of the equipment was made, a base was designed for the hydraulic motors, coupling and laser alignment of the shafts. A sample of the equipment was presented and an agreement was reached to purchase equipment and perform the test.
A 78% reduction in the loading time of the boom spray was made, from 36 or 38 minutes to 6 to 8 minutes. The selection of the pump's manufacturing material was changed, giving the equipment a longer useful life and avoiding premature wear. The required power range is lower, thus using the same existing hydraulic motors, they work less forced, extending their useful life.
