How it Works
The Air Planter™ has a Bulk Fill System that transfers seed from the air tank to the XP™ Meters located on the frame of the drill.
Other than an extra fan, the Bulk Fill System uses no moving parts to gently transfer seed to the XP™ Meters. The singulated seed is closely counted by the sensor at the exit of each XP™ Meter, displaying the performance of each run on the Apollo Monitor. This allows the Operator to immediately investigate any abnormal performance issues such as skips, doubles, or plugs.
- A. The Bulk Fill Fan creates airflow to transfer seed from the Air Seeder Inductor to the XP™ Meter Reservoirs.
- B. Air pressure is created providing positive pressure at each XP™ Meter and delivers seed to the boot.
- C. When the reservoirs on the XP™ Meters are full, the column of seed prevents further air and seed flow.
- D. Seed is carried from the Inductor Box attached to the bottom of the PDM Pro™ Metering Auger Sump to the XP™ Meter Reservoirs.
