ADVANCED FROST PROTECTION
AGI’s electric frost fans provide efficient and reliable protection against damage caused by frost in a variety of environments and temperatures. The custom-designed open impeller ensures efficiency in protecting frost prone crops, irrespective of the surrounding landscape. Our frost fans offer a greener alternative in frost fan technology and boast a coverage area of 7 to 9 hectares per fan and the lowest running costs in the industry.
AGI frost fans are manufactured to order and transported to site in modular form, before being assembled by our experienced field technicians.
ELECTRICALLY-DRIVEN FROST FAN TECHNOLOGY
• 7 to 9 hectares per fan
• Specialised blade design for maximum efficiency
• Electric or generator driven
• Hydraulic pivoting mast for ease of maintenance and installation
• Fewer moving parts
• Blades are always locked in place, which reduces wear
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 fans and is internet enabled.
