Liquid Blockage Monitor System (LBMS)

Now you can know your liquid application flow from the cab of your tractor. Identify which row is being under-applied before your yields are diminished costing valuable time and money. Our patented system shows you both low-flow and no-flow problems now, which means you can correct it immediately. No more second guessing if any of your delivery lines are plugged!

Description

OPERATION WARNING!
Be aware a minimum of 0.126 gallons per minute per row based on 11lb./gallon liquid fertilizer is required in order monitor flow of product successfully. Less than 0.126 gallons per minute per row based on 11lb./gallon of liquid fertilizer is not recommended by the John Blue Company in order to effectively monitor flow using a Liquid Blockage Monitor System.

Features

  • Uses magnetic sensing technology mounted behind the VisaGage II Flow Monitors.
  • Sensors can be mounted to existing VisaGage II units; magnetic balls are supplied with sensors.
  • Identifies where magnetic balls are floating in each row during liquid application.
  • Only LBMS shows both low-flow and no-flow. Plus, the Premium Wireless and the ISOBUS Systems also display high flow for broken lines.
  • See a visual display and hear an audible alarm on the control panel right from your tractor cab.
  • Can be used with cloudy or dark liquids – LED is visible to the sides of the column.
  • Each row with a distribution problem will be highlighted by a flashing LED light at the row. No need to remember or search for which row is blocked after you come to a stop.
  • The alarm will reset automatically when the blockage has been corrected.
  • Have the ability to “Pause” the system to capture problem rows for investigation later when you are able to stop.
  • Our patented LBMS is available in five user-friendly options: standard wired control panel; the wireless systems for iPad, Android, and Amazon Kindle; or the ISOBUS.
  • Wireless apps and ISOBUS sections can be defined and rows can be numbered.
  • The LBMS App is free and available from the Apple Store, Google Play Store, or the Amazon Kindle Store.
  • Settings can be calculated from your desktop or mobile device using our online calculator.
