The Bio-Venturi is a part which can be added to an existing AMI Penta Fertiliser Mixer, or purchased as part of a new fertiliser mixer setup, in order to add biomass (bio-fertilizer and beneficials / microorganisms) as part of your fertiliser regime.
By mixing biomass, the addition can irrigate the culture medium at a very precise dosage. AMI Penta controls the irrigation flow so that the software in the mixer allows for different dosing strategies. Exact dosing provides you with control and thus success with your production.
In order to work with bio-fertilizer your system will need to have an outlet flow sensor, analogue controlled proportional solenoid valve, and analogue flow transmitter. The ratio of each bio-fertilizer can be adjusted via an adjusting valve from 0.01% to 1% of the total main flow. Each fertiliser recipe has the opportunity to include bio-fertilizers. The system includes eight bio-fertilizers, which can be enabled and disabled by the user in each recipe.
Each bio-fertilizer regulates the flow from 0.25 l/m to 6 l/m (6 l/m is limited by the venturi itself and not by the flow transmitter). The water flow is reduced by 0.75 m3/h per venturi or dummy venturi. This means that if the mixer is installed with a 10 m3/h pump, the maximum water flow will be 6.25 m3/h (5 x 0.75 m3/h). The percentage of bio-dosage ratio for the total water flow can be from 0.01% to 1%.
The AMI Penta mixer contains software for all groups, recipes and control of valves are all included in the price – meaning no extra future cost if your needs change. This software also includes many available languages, and switching between them is very simple. This minimizes the risk of human errors in nurseries employing people of different nationalities. The software ensures a mixer with large capacity and flexibility, and it helps you to optimise water resources.
AMI Penta is extremely flexible and the range of options available can allow you to optimise your system. These options will depend on your crop, environment, and fertigation requirements. To ensure you get the right setup for your production system we would recommend speaking to our in-house experts.
The software in the mixer gives you several possibilities of reading facts via simple menus. Among others you can find the following:
Bio-fertilizing can be included in every fertiliser recipe, and the screen shows you:

There are a range of factors to consider before building your AMI Penta fertigation/irrigation solution. In advance of speaking to our in-house experts, getting a clear idea of some of the requirements of your operation will help to identify the right solution for you.
This will define the pump size.
This will determine the number of venturis needed.
This will determine sensors needed.
This will determine if additional equipment such as a return tank are needed
