Practical accessories for the AS 1200 rechargeable spray blower

Practical accessories for the AS 1200 rechargeable spray blower
Innovation

The AS 1200 rechargeable spray blower has proven extremely popular on the market and earned Birchmeier Sprühtechnik AG several awards on account of its innovative design. The manufacturer has recently introduced a flat spray attachment for the spray fan to enable users to apply the product even more efficiently over large areas.

Birchmeier has developed a practical, flat spray nozzle attachment for the AS 1200 rechargeable spray blower. With the new accessory, users can now spray vertically or horizontally – depending on the height or width of the crop. The integrated flat spray nozzle produces a flat spray pattern that can be used to treat specific areas. Applications show that the this further improves the wetting of the upper and lower leaf surfaces, and the attachment helps to cultivate crops with even greater efficiency, especially in ornamental plant cultivation and winegrowing.

In addition to the flat spray nozzle and the corresponding lamella attachment, the set also includes a quick-release coupling to easily replace the nozzle.
Birchmeier also offers a retrofittable quick-change nozzle system for existing appliances. This makes it easy for users to change the nozzles in the blower to use it for crops.

Two wheel battery sprayer C 50 with CAS battery

Two wheel battery sprayer C 50 with CAS battery

Birchmeier presents the two wheel battery pressure sprayer C 50 with CAS system (18 V LiHD / 8.0 Ah) and an electronic control system. This allows you to preset the pressure and maintain it at a constant level. It also monitors important functions such as the pump and rechargeable battery. A constant pressure results in constant spray characteristics. This maximises effectiveness while reducing the amount of solution used.

Depending on the pressure and the accessories used, the rechargeable battery lasts to 22 hours.

Birchmeier devices are famous for their well-thought-out, practical details. For example, the C 50 has a built-in mixing function. When the stirring mechanism is switched on, the spray liquid in the container is mixed with the help of the pump. Not only does this prevent liquid settling at the bottom of the container – it also allows spray solutions to be mixed in the device.

The benefits of the new sprayer are obvious: no smell of petrol or exhaust gases when working, and a lightweight, economical device which like all Birchmeier products is extremely easy to operate.

- The user sets the desired operating pressure anywhere from 1 to 6 bar using a rotary control.
- Thanks to a 50 litre scale on the plastic container, the fill level can be read easily.
- The 10 metre long hose which is wrapped around the neck of the device when it is not being used allows flexible use even at long distances.
- A practical holder on the side of the device is provided to store accessories like spray tubes.

Recyclution 0.5 hand sprayer made from PCR plastic

Recyclution 0.5 hand sprayer made from PCR plastic

Birchmeier is expanding its product portfolio with the Recyclution 0.5 hand sprayer. Therefor the company is only using raw materials that have been recycled from selected post-consumer plastics such as shampoo and detergent bottles, drinks crates, etc. It goes without saying that the highest standards are maintained in the production of the raw material, so that the new sprayer fulfils the well-known Swiss quality requirements.

The Recyclution 0.5 proves that sustainability and quality can go hand in hand. Although the new sprayer is made from 95% recycled material, it is in no way inferior in quality and functionality to popular hand sprayers like the Foxy Plus: The 360° spray function makes it possible to spray in any position, while the adjustable nozzle meets the needs of hobby gardeners, homemakers and DIY enthusiasts.

With the new sprayer, Birchmeier is the first market player to succeed in producing a high-quality sprayer with a 0.5-litre capacity from 95% PCR (post-consumer recycled) plastic.

Pressure control valve PR 3 now as standard equipment on manual sprayers

Pressure control valve PR 3 now as standard equipment on manual sprayers

Birchmeier is now offering his manual sprayers Iris 15, Flox 10, RPD 15, Profi Star 5 and Profi Star 3 with the new PR 3 pressure control valve as standard. Users not only benefit from the adjustable pressure and the resulting constant and even spray quantity, they also save spray liquid and thus protect the environment. In addition, the pumping effort is noticeably reduced by 30%.

 

The PR 3, which is simply pre-assembled between the trigger valve and the hose, ensures a constant operating pressure.

Before starting work, the user selects a pressure of between 1 and 3 bar, which is normal for plant protection applications, on the adjustment wheel of the valve. The pressure control valve regulates to this preset operating pressure, regardless of the pressure that is applied. If this is lower than the pre-set pressure, the flow will be interrupted. Higher pressure is regulated down to the pre-set pressure. If the pressure is constant, the flow will also remain the same.

In this way it can be applied with an even spray pattern. This saves money and protects the environment. A by-pass position can be set as well. The pressure control is switched off or the pressure in the tank will be reduced down to 0 bar to empty or to clean the sprayer.

Battery spray blower AS 1200 saves spray solution and working time

Battery spray blower AS 1200 saves spray solution and working time

The AS 1200 battery-powered spray blower is designed to be used as an attachment in conjunction with a sprayer from Birchmeier’s “Accu-Power” range.

 Controlled airflow increases target area accuracy

The AS 1200 battery-powered spray blower optimises the application of pesticides and plant strengtheners, whether users are aiming to spray a specific area with pin-point accuracy or cover dense foliage, hedges or flat areas.  The choice of different nozzle types and spray pressures enables users to make the right adjustments to suit the application in question. Using a low blower level results in a light airflow capable of moving leaves in close range, meaning that the droplets will land perfectly on the foliage and gently moisten both the upper and lower sides of each leaf. The blower power can be increased to hurricane level, the spray pressure can be adjusted and the nozzle type can potentially be changed for higher applications (up to 13 metres).

This new process enables users to penetrate their plants better and hence increase effectiveness. The process also saves spray solution because more of it lands on the plant, it is distributed better and less of it is lost when spraying. It prevents almost all unwanted spray drift.

The «Accu-Power» line  - Environmentally friendly rechargeable technology for pest control

The «Accu-Power» line won the Taspo Award 2017 in the category "Innovative Product".


In addition to the battery backpack sprayers REB 15 , REC 15 and REX 15 and the two-wheel battery sprayers A 50  and C50, the company now offers the b attery spray blower AS 1200  and pump station BM 1035 , the wheel barrow sprayers A 75 and A 130 which can be converted into rechargeable devices. This means that the manufacturer provides zero emission free products with reliable technology in various performance classes. 

As the first manufacturer the company introduced a comprehensive range of battery sprayers for plant protection. These powerful products are a real alternative to engine-powered sprayers.
Instead of noise and exhaust gases, users enjoy sophisticated technology, highly convenient operation and practical features.
The electronic regulating system acts as a control centre in all «Accu-Power» devices. First used in the REC 15 backpack sprayer, the intelligent control system has proven extremely successful in use.
Birchmeier attaches great importance to providing products tailored to the needs of all users in the plant sector. Because of this, various «Accu-Power» devices are available, offering different pressure ranges, application rates and operating times: 
Horticulture and landscaping/ cemeteries: Generally speaking, pest control in relatively small areas is required here. With a pressure of 4.5 bar and an operating time of more than four hours, the REB 15 will be adequate for most applications. For higher pressures and longer operating times, e.g. when applying fungicides, the REC 15 with up to 6 bar is recommended.

Sports grounds and golf courses: With an operating time of more than ten hours, the REX 15 is recommended for applying herbicides. The REC 15 is suitable for smaller areas.

Tree nurseries, fruit-growing and wine-growing: The REX 15 with 10 bar offers the manoeuvrability of a backpack sprayer with a high pressure for spraying range and stock penetration. The device’s high application rate also allows quick and efficient spraying.

Indoor plants: The A 50 cart sprayer or the «Accu-Power» pump station BM 1035 with an application rate of four to five litres per minute are ideal here.

Flowers and decorative plants: For propagation and young plants, high flow rates with low pressures are very important. With an operating time of more than eight hours, the REC 15 is ideal here. If a high level of stock penetration is needed for established or specimen plants, it offers ample performance thanks to a pressure of 6 bar.

Vegetable-growing/ speciality vegetable-growing: Large quantities of spraying solution and a long operating time are important here, e.g. in tunnels at the edge of a company site. With a 50 litre capacity and an operating time of up to 22 hours, the A 50 and C 50 meet these requirements. The rechargeable A 75 and A 130 cart sprayers are suitable for larger areas. The BM 1035 can be used as a pump station for even larger tanks.
