01. What is the Green Delivery System ?
The Green Delivery System is an automatic distributor of optimally adapted nutrients for different types of plants. It is suitable for both amateur gardeners and commercial crop producers.
The system uses the most advanced instrumental technology available in analytical laboratories.
02. Which model should I choose ?
G3 : In order to prepare 1 to 10 liters of final mixing solution.
G4 : In order to prepare 10 to 250 liters of final mixing solution.
G5 : In order to prepare 1 to 250 liters of final mixing solution.
03. PH & EC
The GDS does not measure the PH nor the EC.
The user must adjust them depending of the PH of his dilution water, the mineral nature of his soil and the nutrients regime of the plants.
Manual mode: manually input of the desired final mixing solution (1 to 250 l), and the concentration of each of the nutrients from the feeding schedule. The interface is very intuitive and ergonomic from the touch screen drop down menu.
GDS adapts to the different feeding regime of fertilizer manufacturers and offers the ability to input the concentrations in ml/liter, ml/10 liters or ml/100 liters to avoid any mistakes.
Programming mode: Manual start of the saved feeding schedule. All the GDS models have an automatic start-up mode of the feeding schedule at the date and time programmed.. The GDS will continue throughout the whole duration of the feeding schedule programmed.
05. Expert, not Expert ?
All the GDS models offers an easy and ergonomic programming of your personalized feeding schedules.
Upon request, Green Delivery System will deliver your model preprogrammed with the feeding schedules of your choice : personalized or manufacturers.
06. Crystallization, contamination
The Full range of GDS is developed using the techniques and technologies used in scientific instrumentation by research and analysis laboratories of biological products!
The implemented protocols that have been put in place, protects against products crystallization, chemical reactions of inter-concentrated products, and therefore guarantee the absence of contamination throughout the fluid circuits of the system. Each nutrient is treated as a pure nutrient and will stay this way until reaching the final recipient.
07. High technology & Durability
08. Inputs & Outputs of the GDS models
GDS-G3 : 6 nutrients inputs & 1 beaker output
GDS-G4 : 6 nutrients inputs & 1 tank output.
GDS-G5 : 5 nutrients inputs, 1 beaker output & 1 tank output (input E).
All models are equipped with a "Lav" input to connect a bottle of demineralized water to clean the fluid circuits.
The inputs are labeled A to F
Inputs A, B, C & D are assigned to low viscosity nutrients
Inputs E & F are for nutrients with medium to high viscosity
The GDS-G4 offers only input F for nutrients with a medium or high viscosity. Input E is allocated to the tank output.
09. Active concentration & viscosity
The given values in ml/liter, ml/10 liters or ml/100 liters express the concentration of dissolved active particles in the proposed product. The latter is then designated as a concentrated product.
According to its nature: mineral, organic or biological, the concentrated solution may be more or less liquid. It is then more or less viscous or in other words it will flow more or less easily in the connecting pipes.
Therefore you should differentiate between: concentration & viscosity.
10. How to determine the allocation of nutrients ?
All the GDS have an input to initiate the filling of the pipes connected to the system by the active nutrients.
This filling is done by means of a syringe that connects to the front of the machine (description of the procedure in the "instructions" - User Manual).
The force to be exerted on the plunger of the syringe is directly proportional to the viscosity of the product.
The "paste" viscosity is the absolute limit and it is forbidden to be used on any of the GDS models. The vast majority of commercially available nutrients, are compatible with the range of GDS machines.
11. The fluidic connections
All GDS are connected, from a fluid perspective, with connection type "UNF 1/4" - 28. This is a standard used in laboratory equipment.
To allow the connection of the GDS to the bottles of nutrients, we offer pipes with a conical cap which allows easy adaptation to the different manufacturer's bottle nutrients. The GDS come with a cap of average diameter. However it will be easy for you to specify the inside diameter of the bottle products that you own. (We'll get a picture with the range of pipes).
12. The pressurized bottles
For viscous products , the GDS models are provided with assistance in filling.
Like a train that pulls ten wagons, heavily loaded, two locomotives ensure the movement of the train. One pulls at the front the wagons and the other pushes at the rear. Inputs E & F are inputs with assistance. That is why they are assigned to medium and high viscosities. The assistance starts during the initialization of these two lines. If the product has difficulty reaching into the syringe, then it has a viscosity state that is incompatible with the GDS. All GDS come packaged with pressurized bottles. Under no circumstances should you replace them with another device.
13. Pipes & filters
The inlet flow pipes are calibrated in diameter and length depending on the type of system. In no way are they to be changed by any other pipes. The input channels of the GDS must be protected by filters. These filters are delivered with the connecting pipes. All these parts requires periodic maintenance. It is advisable to follow the requirements outlined in the "User Manual". The inputs of the GDS should never be connected without a filter.
14. Cleaning water
All GDS models have for primary mission to monitor and implement, without any contamination, the precise dosage and distribution of each nutrient of the feeding schedule.
The nutrients offered by manufacturers require the adjustment, or not, of the PH of the final mixing solution according to the nature and environment of the plants concerned. GDS is a system that is designed to be neutral of any change, of any manufacturer's specification, and therefore we recommends the use of demineralized water as cleaning water between each distribution of nutrients.
15. Suspension of concentrated nutrients
Concentrated products tends to settle in the bottom of the bottle. Before starting your GDS, it is recommended to homogenize your nutrients. Several techniques are proposed. Agitation by tilting, circular agitation etc. In the future, Green Delivery System, will offer you automatic solutions.
16. Homogenization of the diluted solution
It is an essential operation for which the implementation techniques depends on the final volumes.
