AFS Boom shut-off valve: Completely new design and made specifically for agricultural aircraft. The AFS boom shut-off valve is lightweight at only 6 lbs., is machined from aluminum, and treated with an AFS propriety coating which means a long maintenance-free life. The AFS boom shut-off valve can cycle from on to off in .47 sec., is available in 24 volts, and is controlled from a switch panel in the cockpit. Typically, installations can be from one to up to four valves per aircraft. Right or left outboard shut-off and/or right or left complete boom shut-off, or any combination. The AFS Boom shut-off valve can be permanently mounted on the AFS spray boom or can be purchased as a separate Cam-Loc mounted unit.
AFS “Extended life” Spray booms: AeroFlow Systems is also introducing specially designed AFS “Extended Life” spray booms which are treated inside and outside with its proprietary coatings. Tired of struggling with unending corrosion from aluminum spray booms and cracking from heavy stainless steel booms? Check out the AFS “Extended Life” spray booms and start getting the return on your investment that you expect from spray booms. Better yet have your booms custom made by adding the AFS Boom shut-off valves welded into both the spray boom and center section.
