GoatThroat Pumps Secures Representation and Distribution Partnership With AAMS-Salvarani for Agricultural Pump Sales in Europe
Both companies scheduled to co-present newest pump innovation at Agritechnica conference in Hannover, Germany.
GoatThroat Pumps (https://www.goatthroat.com/) recently announced it had secured a mutually beneficial partnership with Belgian-based agri-business company AAMS-Salvarani (www.aams.be). AAMS-Salvarani will represent GoatThroat Pumps as a major European distributor, a significant expansion of the innovative U.S.-based pump company into the global marketplace. Both GoatThroat Pumps and AAMS-Salvarani will present the new GT-QS Closed Transfer Dosing Systems pump in the upcoming Agritechnica exhibition, scheduled for November 10th–16thin Germany.
GT-QS Closed Transfer Dosing Systems: Overview
The GT-QS is a hand operated or pneumatic system that dispenses chemicals from containers and industry-standard drums from an upright position. With no chance for spills, the GT-QS works for all PPP containers, including both 10 and 20 liter, and for all barrels up to 210 liters.
Each system comes complete with every item needed to move liquids from the source container, through measuring and into the mix tank, with a simple triple-rinse set up. Different QS-CTDS base connections are available for all plant protection product containers; including five, ten, and 20-liter containers, for all 120 and 210-liter, and Micromatic. The pump head can be transferred between multiple containers and/or different liquids for efficient dosing and mixing of plant protection products.
This self-contained low-pressure device can be operated by hand like a beer tap, or with a pneumatic device upgrade intended for larger volumes. Dosing accuracy is guaranteed at better than 1 percent, with precision valves and sight measuring devices that feature either 10 ml or 50 ml increments depending on the model. Containers always remain in upright positions, preventing spill hazards. And triple rinsing meets a 99.9 percent cleanliness standard. So far there have been some systems on the European market to prevent spills but those never could guarantee a high dosing accuracy. That’s where we see our benefit by which we soon hope to acquire a firm place in this particular market.
GT-QS Closed Transfer Dosing Systems: Features
- Operates in the upright position, for maximum safety and elimination of spills; waste prevention also protects expensive plant concentrates.
- Dispenses liquids at a controlled rate; adjustable flow rates, ranging from drops all the way to 17-liters per minute, for accuracy.
- Measuring devices offered with 10 to 50 ml increments that deliver better than 1.0 percent accuracy.
- Works with all container styles and sizes; one pump head can be switched between multiple containers for greater efficiency in loading and mixing.
- All connections are dry break, with less than 0.10 ml spillage at each disconnect.
- OSHA and EPA compliance.
GoatThroat pumps are safe for use with more than 1,700 liquids, including the most aggressive acids, flammables and solvents currently used in manufacturing. GoatThroat pumps have engineered controls that prevent most of the commonly occurring fluid hazards at the point-of-use, eliminating the need for dangerous tip-and-pour barrel transfer techniques. The pumps are also crafted to last 10 years or more, ensuring that they are a long-term pumping solution.
