Goldacres is regarded as Australia’ leading manufacturer of agricultural spray equipment. They saw the need for a fast mixing and transfer method and developed a batching system to solve this issue. They selected an Aussie 3” “Smart Pump” that would deliver the right flow and pressure combination for the batching process.
The Goldacres Batchmate is a stand alone batching system that allows chemicals to be pre-mixed easily, safely and quickly, ready for transfer into the sprayers.
The compact unit incorporates an 800 litre tank with a Honda driven Aussie 3” Smart Pump. The high capacity venturi with chemical induction probe, is incorporated to enable the mixing process to be carried out with maximum efficiency and speed. The Aussie pump selected was a self priming, model RSEBSV incorporating high flow capacity and excellent performing characteristics.
Manufactured from 30% glass filled polyester, the pump will handle aggressive farm chemicals with ease. Mechanical seals and elastomers, including check valve, are in Viton, compatible with most farm chemicals.
The Aussie Smart Pumps are covered by a free extended warranty of five years. Honda engines that drive them come with Honda’s usual three year warranty.
“It’s great to see Australian manufacturers like Goldacres producing innovative machines like the Batchmate”, said Aussie Pumps’ Chief Engineer, John Hales. “This purpose built machine saves time, and even features a 23 litre handwash tank with soap dispenser!”
