Don’t risk A fire
this season!

Prevent harvester fires with the:

In recent seasons, farmers have experienced a significant increase in header fires, which are leading to higher insurance premiums.

The fires are believed to be caused by a build up of dust and debris that accumulate in hot spots such as the engine bay, exhaust manifold, battery or rotor shaft. Fires are also reported to be more common in pulse crops such as lentils, vetch and chickpeas.

When a harvester fire does occur it can have a devastating impact on your farming operations. Even if the harvester is properly insured, it results in significant downtime, potential crop losses and there is a major risk of injury or death to the operator.

To prevent this, operators typically stop their harvester every few hours to remove the build up. This is a major inconvenience, particularly when weather is unpredictable and getting the harvest completed quickly is paramount.

To address this problem, hydraulics and engineering specialists Horsham Hydraulics developed the Tornado Harvester Airflow System.

A fully automated and integrated fan system that addresses the problem head on, keeping dirt and debris off hot spots, minimising the chance of your harvester catching fire.

This innovative system has undergone testing and development and is now available for order in time for the 2017 harvesting season.

Tornado’s Key System Features

Powerful Fan System

At the heart of the system is a powerful fan, which helps deliver air flow to each outlet. The fan is covered by a long lasting ventilated cover to enable airflow, while stopping any major obstructions from entering the fan.

Multiple Air Outlets

Features 6 to 12 fan outlets which are placed in high risk areas such as the engine bay, exhaust system, battery, rotor shaft and bearings. Ensuring dust and debris doesn’t settle on hot spots and ignite.

System Monitoring

The system is connected to a cab-mounted display which allows the harvester operator to check that the system is operating effectively.

High Quality Parts

The fan system is manufactured using high quality parts and components to deliver consistent performance and withstand the harshest Australian conditions.

Fits Most Harvesters

The system can be fitted to almost any harvester make or model, including brands such as John Deere, Case IH, Claas, New Holland, Gleaner and Massey Ferguson.
