Green Blow and Agricultural Sector

A simple air blow can solve many agricultural applications !
How ? Let's find out together in this article.

The agricultural sector offers a number of very interesting applications for the Green Blow line. For some years now the hydraulic powered version has been developed to allow application in agricultural machinery.

What can be its application in this sector ?

The first is to separate products with different weights.
In the specific case of automatic harvesting machines it could separate the leaves from the fruits.

In this video it is possible to notice the effect of the air blow that in a simple and economic way divides the leaf (very light) from the fruit

The electric version which applications could have ?

Green Blow, in its electric versions, can be used in many post-harvest applications such as drying and/or cleaning the product before its packing (for example).

The accessories included in the catalog (air knives, brackets and connections) allow the creation of complete drying / cleaning systems, like real drying portals.

Could it be used in horticultural field?

Green Blow, has already found application in this field.
In fact, inside the greenhouses, the blown air of Green Blow is enough to create an air recirculation system that avoids the presence of unwanted insects.

It is also used in the washing lines for sowing boxes and / or vases for the drying phase or in the treatment of seedlings directly in the greenhouse on board of mobile trolleys.

Recall that the main features of Green Blow are the small size, as well as the weight (only 4,3 kg), combined with excellent blowing performances  with small motors.

Some features of hydraulic version (at 4000 rpm):
– Air outlet speed equal to 65m/s
– Flow rate 900m^3/h
– Total pressure of 2500Pa
– Hydraulic flow rate: 16 liter/min
The above data have been calculated using the 630mm diffuser

A series of accessories completes Air Line allowing to create your own system: air knives, connections and brackets

Tecnargilla Preview

Tecnargilla confirms itself as the main showcase for the presentation of many new products, created to meet the new market needs driven, above all, by the production of large format tiles and digital glazing.

Near our stand you will be able to meet our technicians, sales people, touch the products and see how they work directly.

The products lines that will be presented are the following:

The Air Line will be presented in all its completeness. In fact, in addition to the Green Blow, there will be a series of accessories that will let you to easily and quickly create real blowing systems.

It will also be possible to test the different performances of the three Green Blow models that will be presented:
Standard model: already presented in last edition, with motor 0,37 Kw (IE2) that gives a total pressure of 1300 Pa, a volume flow rate of 660 m^3/h and an engine performance of 70n%
IE3 Model: with same motor size but, combined with an inverter, could arrive to a total pressure of 1990 Pa, a volume flow rate of 810 m^3/h and an engine performance of 78n%.
Green Blow Plus, the top series: with a motor with permanent magnets 2,2 Kw, arrives to an incredible engine performance of  91,8n%, giving a total pressure of 3070 Pa and  a maximum volume flow rate of 1010 m^3/h

The accessories line, in addition to diffusers and air knifes that could arrive till 3 meters lenght, is enriched with a series of components (brackets, curves, connections, etc) that will allow the blower to be applied quickly to any existing system or to create its own independent blowing system.

Two softwares it will be available for testing:

  • simulation software that allows to define in advance the thermal decrease obtained with the use of Green Blow on its own line after setting up some starting datas
  • a configurator that allows you to download the 3D of the complete system, set previously, directly in the format of your CAD system

The production of large-format tiles has forced us to rethink the entire historic line of components for transport, in order to support greater loads.
The Linea Heavy is born, which includes, in addition to the supports, also idler and driving pulleys for a shaft with diameter 40-50, protections for UCP208, and all the components necessary for safe and effective transport.
At the stand will be exhibited a small transport line totally created with these components.

Tecnargilla’s latest focus will be on the containment of tiles during their transport.
It will be possible to see the whole Roller Conveyor Line, designed for a precise and safe transport of all types of tiles, from the little baseboard to the large format.

All the rollers of the line are made of rubber material so as not to damage the tile and are available in cylindrical or conical versions, in case the upper surface of the tile should not be touched.

Green Blow becomes hydraulic
10 Nov

Green Blow becomes hydraulic

After the great success of the electric version of Green Blow during last edition of Eima, has been developed the version with hydraulic drive for agricultural applications.

We would like to remember the main features of Green Blow: compactness, lightness (only 4,3 kg), high blowing performances di soffiaggio with little motors.

Some features of hydraulic version:
– Average output air speed 65m/s (with 620mm spout)
– Volume flow rate of 900m^3/h (with 620mm spout)
– Required hydraulic flow rate (at 4000 rpm) : 11 liters/min
– Total pressure at spout exit of 2500Pa

A lot of accessories are available to customize the application of the Green Blow on machine/systems:
Spouts: in addition to 620mm standard spout (look at photo) are available also 450, 245 and a cylindric spout suitable for a coiled tube D.100
Transversal Diffuser: in aluminium and extremely customizable. Can be realized at your own size till a maximum width of 3 meters.


Brackets : different kind of brackets make the Green Blow fixing easy and effective. It’s possible to create also complex ventilation systems, such as drying gateway.

Thanks to all this features, Green Blow can be used to dry, clean and cool. With this new hydraulic version it can be applied directly on agricultural  machinery to separate products with different weights, for example, the fruits from leaves.

REVESTIR AND CEVISAMA: full of visitors and news !

REVESTIR AND CEVISAMA: full of visitors and news !

The success of the first two trade fairs of the year, Cevisama and Revestir, gave us the right energy to continue along the direction already undertaken: design new products in order to guarantee cost-effective solutions to our customers.

In Spain, Cevisama, which took place in early February in Valencia, registered a record attendance with 78,221 visitors, of which 14,923 foreigners from 145 countries.

The stand of our distributor Ucersa, has followed this trend in terms of attendance and the products presented have been a great hit with visitors, even from other industrial fields.

Great success also for Revestir, which took place in early March in Sao Paulo (Brazil), a market that despite the difficulties of the country has responded with an increase in visitors of +3.5% (over 63,000 total visitors) compared to the previous edition.

A number of visitors curious about the innovations that were presented, passed from the stand of our dealer Servitech.

Let us briefly review the innovations aimed at meeting the growing needs of customers about the main market trends: large tiles and digital decoration.

A new accessory for the Green Blow, which has attracted the curiosity of visitors and is frequently used at the inlet of digital decorators to cool the tiles: Diffusore-Trasversalethe transversal diffusor.
This new diffuser is born from the growing customer demand to have flow section wider than the previously provided 700mm. This diffuser is
highly configurable:  it can be produced in any size (even more than 3 meters) and, if the size of 1500mm is exceeded, it is possible to
apply a second Green Blow (one on each side) in order to ensure an excellent blowing performance.
The diffuser is also adjustable, which allows a 0-90° rotation and always provides the correct angle of the air flow on the tile.
It is supplied complete with its reinforced mounting support in order to allow its application on large frames. It’s available in two configurations: with direct inlet or with 90° curve inlet which makes possible to apply a commercial corrugated tube and to put the blower away from the diffuser.

This new diffuser, due to its high configurability, opens the possibility of using Green Blow blower in all areas where it is necessary to clean, dry and cool: from the wood/glass/marble industry, to the fruit industry, bottling and many others fields.

SRS-Heavy

For what concerns large size tiles, the Heavy Version of the side guide adjustment system (product already included in the catalogue) has been presented.
This new reinforced system allows to handle heavy tiles and can be applied also on frames larger than 1000mm.
Its great versatility allows different applications: with a knob, with lateral adjustment and with double independent adjustment.
The Heavy line will see further developments in the next months concerning both plastic pulleys and safety guards.

In addition to these important changes, new versions of projecting roller conveyors were presented in order to allow a proper handling of any type of tile: the raw tile (very fragile), the baseboards, tiles with very specific dimensions.

The next meeting will be Tecnargilla from the 26th to 30th September in Rimini.
New products will be presented in order to complete both the “Air Line” and to satisfy internal handling needs.
