NH3 in the nick of time, and around the clock
Farmers are resourceful—they
like to produce more with less. Exactrix® TAPPKTS formulators
have already proven that most applications are made at .5 to .6
of the fertilizer dealer recommendation.
But what happens when more fertilizer is needed, and fast?
On-time delivery of NH3 sells the system.
The fact that the NH3 transportation system is on time takes
away the leverage of the fertilizer industry to tighten supply
when they want to. With local production of NH3, its delivery
will be 45 minutes to 1 hour out of the plant, allowing 20
minutes for filling and 45 minutes to 1 hour back. Turnaround
from an optimum-scale Green Play Ammonia™, Yielder® NFuel Energy
plant will require 2.5 to 3 hours.
Each farm must have 30,000 gallons of storage to allow for
DOT transport delivery within 45 minutes to 1 hour. Producers
can maintain their own 30,000 gallon storage tanks at the
windmill site when within 1 hour of travel time. Producers must
own their own tanks at the plant site or at their farm site.
Portable NH3 storage is also available at each optimum-scale
Green Play Ammonia™, Yielder® NFuel Energy site. Yielder® NFuel
Energy also maintains portable storage, often used for portable
asphalt plants at 22,000 gallons.
On-site safety is greatly improved with pressurized NH3
storage and when older nurse tanks are eliminated. Improved
safety brings on strong local support, unhampered by the
political pressure often associated with the ’60s design NH3
storage found at fertilizer dealers.
NH3 in a pinch, no panic required? The readily available
Green Play Ammonia™, Yielder® NFuel Energy will become a model for
other countries that want to evolve with NH3 applied directly to
the land, reducing worldwide GHG to its lowest levels.
|3 powerhouse options for
timely delivery of NH3
Delivery snags have met their match with three sizes
available of delivery trucks with backup trailers:
Valley, 425 hp, 2,500 gal. NH3 single-axle truck and dual-axle
trailer, 1,000 gallons. 60 miles. Short distance 1 hour out
and 1 hour back.
Northern, 500 hp, 4,500 gal. NH3 dual-axle truck and tri-axle
trailer, 2,000 gallons. 120 miles. Long distance 2 hours out
and 2 hours back.
Canadian, 650 hp,
8,000 gal. NH3 Tridem axle truck and tri-axle trailer, 6,000
gallons. 10 KM to 250 KM, 24 hours day and night.
Mobility protects value.
Tanks—especially the 30,000 and 60,000 gallon capacities—hold
their value as they are easier to move. After 40 years of
service, tanks are worth more than the original cost.
Yielder® NFuel Energy also provides portable storage, bringing
capacity where needed at 22,000 gallons.
