One of the main difficulties of the ag aviation industry is the lack of solutions specifically directed to our activities, which often requires the adaptation of other technologies to our work. It was thinking about this problem that Zanoni Equipamentos developed a complete line of products for the supply of ag aircrafts, offering ground support equipment with greater durability in order to meet the demands of our partners.
In recent years, Zanoni Equipamentos has been manufacturing a line of pumps for loading the aircrafts. With a 100% stainless steel frame, these pumps are produced for several options of engine and can be adapted to the customer’s or come with some options straight from the factory. For foreign customers, engine options should be consulted with our distributors. In addition to the stainless steel frame, Zanoni pumps have brought three other innovations to the its users:
- A silicon carbide and tungsten seal, much more resistant than other materials and which prevents leakage problems (the result of a lot of research done by the company to find the best way to seal);
- A shaft coated in stainless steel, which withstands corrosion for a long time,
- And a bearing housing, which avoids the risk of any liquid leaking into the engine, preserving the proper functioning and life of the equipment.
This product line has received great feedback in the Brazilian market, due to the cost-benefit of the equipment and its great durability when compared to traditional pumps manufactured in other materials. In addition to being the main supplier of this type of product to the Brazilian agricultural fleet and for agricultural pilots in other countries, Zanoni Equipamentos is now also the producer of these pumps for the main manufacturers of load tanks in Brazil and has stood out in other industries besides aviation.
In addition to the load pumps, Zanoni Equipamentos also has a complete series of line strainers, directional valves (two-way and three-way valves) and centrifugal pumps, offering greater robustness to the ground crew. We believe that the technological development for ground support equipment is also of great relevance for the ag aviation, since it increases the efficiency of the activity with the saving of time and durability of the equipment, also offering higher quality and safety in the work environment.
