The LH 500 Slurry Controller is a
new speed compensated sludge and slurry application control system for
slurry spread and injecting machines.
The LH 500 Slurry Controller is a new speed compensated sludge and slurry application control system for slurry spread and injecting machines. LH Agro introduced the first slurry control kit in 1993, the company says, and the 500 console is part of the second generation of these systems.
The LH 500 features a non-contact electromagnetic flow meter to help control liquid manure application. Data is collected from the flow sensor, a speed sensor and shaft speed sensor fitted at the pump and distributor.
Electric signals from the computer to the tanker’s oil-hydraulic valve block control the setting of the vehicle’s bypass output value on the discharge pipe.
The company says it is easy to learn and use the LH 500. Warnings are given if any performance irregularities occur. The operator is requested to enter only the desired tonne/hectare rate via the computer key pad. An increase/decrease percentage key allows the operator to change the rate temporarily.
