Titan Enterprises and Stored Crop Conservation Limited celebrate 20 years of collaboration with the latter expanding into the global market.
Agrochemical specialists, Stored Crop use a modified application system to extend the life of crops before and after harvest and maintain healthy storage environments. The company’s fogging machines use Titan’s 900 series turbine flow meters to record and monitor the volume of dispensed chemical used to treat and protect crops, grain stores, poultry units and glasshouses.
Initially a niche market, demand for Store Crop ‘fogging’ machines has increased from around the globe over the past year. The durability and chemical resistance of Titan’s flow meters helps ensure that the different ‘fogging’ chemicals dispensed through Stored Crop’s machines can be used in Europe, Argentina, Russia, China and Pakistan, where regulations for the process may vary.
Nick Green, Stored Crop’s CEO, said: “Where we are primarily servicing the food packaging industry and major food processing companies in the UK, our fogging machines are now being requested by an international market. This has significantly increased our manufacturing demand, and Titan’s excellent service and response to demand has been a great support.”
Green added: “Early on in our operation, we found a sprayer that utilised Titan’s flowmeters. We trialled one of Titan’s measuring devices, working with them to adjust the flow meters to meet our exact requirements. We use both the PVDF and stainless-steel cased mini turbines as they are able to function accurately and reliably with aggressive chemicals where careful control of application volume is absolutely critical.”
Neil Hannay, Senior R&D Engineer with Titan Enterprises said: “These turbine flow measuring devices are an ideal low-cost component for OEM applications. The combination of chemically resistant flow meter design and low flow rates to ensure precision measurement is well suited for chemical dispensing or batch-filling systems.”
Titan’s 900 series offers 6 flow ranges from 0.05 to 15 L/min. The sapphire bearings give long life and reliability, and the choice of body materials makes it suitable for metering aggressive chemicals, including ultra-pure water.
