CropKing's Nutrient Injection System allows growers to simplify their fertigation process by injecting concentrated fertilizer mixes into a main reservoir tank which is then pumped through the bato bucket feed lines. The hydroponics nutrient injection system includes one two-headed bellows pump and one single-headed bellows pump. The two-headed bellows pump pulls fertilizer from two concentrate tanks, in which the fertilizer salts are split in order to prevent precipitates from forming. The bellows pump injects the concentrated fertilizer at predetermined ratios, often 1:100. The single-headed bellows pump holds concentrated acid, which is also added at a predetermined ratio in order to reach a target pH.
The hydroponics Nutrients Injection System comes completely assembled and mounted on a steel frame. It is pressured tested before leaving our manufacturing facility. Two PVC union connectors are included, one at the water supply hookup and one coming off the injection pump. All electrical connections are clearly marked in the drip-proof control box. Complete electrical diagrams are provided with each greenhouse plant fertilizer system. The control panel features manual and automatic switches with indicator lights for all functions. The system is compatible with any type of 24-volt AC irrigation controller. The Nutrient injection system will supply up to 17 gpm at 24 psi of nutrient solution to the irrigation system with up to 4 irrigation zones.
Hot and cold water valves on the water supply provide a method of adjusting the nutrient solution to the proper temperature ideal for root growth. The system also includes a bypass kit to aid in system cleanup and emergency situations. For added security, the CropKing Injector System comes equipped with an alarm kit to alert the grower if a loss of pressure is detected. The alarm connects to the Sensaphone to call and alert the grower, or can activate a (customer supplied) 115 volt flashing light or buzzer. Nutrient Concentrate Tanks must be purchased separately.
