GEN I Fertilizer System
The Montag Generation One (GEN I) metering system is unique to the industry with its well-tested design made of 300 series food grade stainless steel. Because of its simple design, long life and unique metering ability, it has become the standard for deep banding dry fertilizer.
- Reduces hydraulic requirements allowing for more options for grower
- The Montag specific hydraulic block allows for industry leading control of the product metering system and the fan with only one hydraulic bank required.
- The block includes safety valves to protect the fan seals and reduces heat in the hydraulic system.
- Removes large materials when loading that can plug down tubes or can harm metering system.
- Reduces air requirements by limiting air pressure.
- Simpler design with no gasket seals on lid.
- Allows growers to use on current controller (with 37 Pin JD) or to use standard adapter plugs for other controllers.
- Reduced horsepower requirements (fan runs @3800 RPM or less)
- Fertilizer is introduced into the air stream at the air chamber requiring less pressure to move it to the row unit
- Any component that comes in direct contact with fertilizer is either stainless steel or plastic.
- Components outside the tank (such as valves / weigh bars / elec. harnessing) are all selected with our corrosive environment in mind for in field reliability.
- The Speed Sensor Motor is included with all GEN I Montag metering systems.
- The Raven Encoder is only available as a field install kit.
- Standard Meter Sizes: 8, 12, 16 and 18 row
- High Output Meter Sizes: 8, 12, 16, 18 and 24 row
- Low Rate Augers can be added to an existing GEN I giving you the ability to apply half rates.
- 16 or 24 row machines can be factory installed with 2 section drive or components can be purchased and added for 2017 models and newer.
- NOT available for 8 and 12 row machines.
- Available in ½” or ¾” screen to size product so as to reduce blockage in either the auger or the injection tube (behind the knife on the toolbar).
- Screens are constructed completely out of stainless steel.
