Another HPNow A1000 commissioned

Another HPNow A1000 commissioned up in Scotland at a soft fruit farm of one of our clients.

HPNow is a unique way to produce UltraPure Peroxide ™ (H2O2), which then controls algae, bio slime and pathogens.

The new A1000 unit was installed to a good supply of mains water, 240V electrical supply and kept dry with good ventilation. The unit has a micro-computer on board and is connected to the internet via network cable, allowing HPNow’s Denmark HQ to monitor the electronic parts 24/7. Corrections can then be made as necessary and any practical maintenance advised before any failure.

The installation and commissioning was simple and without problem. Once set up, the new unit started producing the required UltraPure Peroxide ™ in a quiet continuous process over 24 hour periods. The machine produces 99.99% Peroxide UltraPureTM at a concentration of 1500ppm.

The H2O2 is injected into the irrigation via a Tefen E300 electric injector. 3 pumps were required for each system.

Once it was set up and operating, the client started the process of checking various endpoints (and start points) for the concentration of UltraPure Peroxide ™. The recommended continuous dose was 2ppm. At the end of the lines, we would look for between 0.3 and 1ppm. We used specific inexpensive test papers for this which are colour coded and clear to understand.

The client has one central production area with a control IBC serving various others for distribution around the farm. The control IBC has various level indicators so it cannot overflow.

The produced product, because of its purity, can be stored in a warehouse for 4-6 weeks with no noticeable degradation.

This grower is looking forward to a cleaner and healthier water distribution to the crops, as UltraPure Peroxide ™ brakes down to water and oxygen this will give a substantial boost to the plant’s roots.

UK Soft Fruit Grower Invests in Cleaner Water

…and Increase Their Future Water Security

Issues included significant organic activity in reservoir water and bio-slime in pipes, which often leads to irregular irrigation output and blocked drippers.

To cover all of their farm, which has a daily peak usage of 1600m3 , required 2 x HP-A1500 units and a series of IBCs. HPNow supply a simple to use calculator to confirm the units required for your particular system.

A central HPGen UltraPure Peroxide ™ unit was installed in an existing shed with a 230v supply, mains water and access to the internet. From this central point, the IBCs are transported to the different pump houses.

Each of the 22 irrigation pumps and feed systems has been supplied with a separate Tefen E300 electronic injection system.
The ppm of the HPGen UltraPure Peroxide ™ is checked using a simple test paper with colour coding, which indicates the amount present.

With remote access, maintenance and control is simple and immediate.

HP Now – Controls Algae, Pathogens and Bio-Film

HPGen unit in field

When Penny UK signed up to HPNow technology as their distributer in the UK and Eire, I don’t think we quite realised the interest in this unit would be so great. The patented idea of producing your own UltraPure Peroxide ™(H2O2) to control and eliminate pathogens, algae and bioslime as well as oxygenating your crop clearly offers growers something which thy have been looking for.

The control of costs where the initial investment is then only followed by the cost of water and 240v electrical supply (bar the occasional unit service) offers a control on outgoings which is important as every businessman knows. The material produced is safe! Safety of employees is so paramount on today’s farms and the HPNow unit gives this security. And the use of UltraPure Peroxide ™(H2O2) is well known with its only real downside is the degrading of the product over a relatively short period of time (2 to 3 weeks). But the HPNow unit eliminates this lifespan by allowing growers to produce exactly what they want to use so there is no storage requirement!

The HPNow team are making various visits to the UK in the coming months so get yourself booked in and learn more about this product with real potential.
