Staying Up to Steam With Compressed Air

Flow Assist keeps pressure on fertilizer nurse tank to compensate for low outside air temperatures.

Published on: Jan 10, 2013

Consistent anhydrous ammonia application can be tough when temperatures fall, but Quality Plus Mfg., has a solution for that in its Flow Assist.

The Flow Assist uses compressed air to help maintain consistent nurse tank head pressures -- which mimics warmer temperatures -- and keeps the head between 80- and 100 lbs.

The frame-mounted unit attaches to tractor hydraulics for power.
