PROTECT YOUR CROPS AGAINST FROST
AGI’s electric frost fans offer efficient and reliable protection against frost in a variety of environments and temperatures. The open impeller design provides class-leading coverage of up to 9 hectares per fan and the electrically driven motor earns it the accolade of having the lowest running costs in the industry.
AGI’s electrically-driven frost fans protect a wide variety of crops including amongst others grapes, avocados, citrus fruits, pomegranates, gooseberries and nuts.
THE GREENER ALTERNATIVE FOR FROST PROTECTION
RADIO FREQUENCY-BASED CLOUD CONTROL SYSTEM
The RF-based control system consists of Fan Control Units linked to a Homebase. The Homebase offers a dashboard where all fan and operational data may be viewed in graphic form. Each Homebase can remotely control up to 20 frost fans and is internet enabled.
THE FUTURE OF FROST PROTECTION
AGI’s elecrically-driven frost fans are available in 15kW (20HP) or 30kW (40HP) electrical motor versions that can operate from 3-phase grid power or a diesel generator.
With a mast length of 10m (33ft) and coverage of 7 to 9 hectares per fan, our fans boast the lowest running costs in the industry.
A hydraulic pivoting mast simplifies installation and maintenance, and the blade-lock feature reduces wear.
“After replacing some of the competitors machines, we have doubled our protection area and reduced our operating cost by as much as 80 – 90%. They have been incredibly reliable and combined with the low running cost, we have been able to start the machines at a higher temperature for protection against cold damage too.”
– Kobus, Groenheuwel (farm manager)
“We had the fans put up in the autumn of 2020. They were erected and tested in a highly professional manner. The fans proved to be highly successful over the winter of 2020. We would recommend AGI frost fans to anyone looking to combat frost.”
– R. Danckwerts, Saxfold Farm (Citrus)
“AGI frost fans is one of the best investments I have made in the last few years. It has already covered the cost in the first season with frost damage which took place along the Oranje River this year (2020). I installed two fans this season and am erecting another one next season. Thank you AGI Frost Fans for your team and great backup and support systems you have in place.”
