It’s Agricultural Show Season!

The next few months will see numerous companies in our industry come together for the agricultural show season. Last week, fuel tank manufacturers, fuel distributors and fuel transfer pump equipment merchants came together along with other agricultural suppliers, for the first of the larger farming exhibitions; the Cereal Show in Lincolnshire.
Over the next couple of months, farmers and farming contractors will be attending the 200 country shows that will be going on across the country. Amongst these is the well-known Royal Highland Show that is set to take place from Thursday 20th June to Sunday 23rd.
Ready in time for the agricultural show season, we have launched a number of new agricultural products designed to aid the refuelling of tractors, combines and other farming machinery. Piusi have recently introduced a horizontal threaded port version of the standard BP3000 Battery Kit; a 24v and 12v diesel transfer pump kit, complete with nozzle, hose and strainer, ideal for taking out into the field for mobile refuelling.
Also new for the agricultural market is the Fluid Buddy submersible 12v fuel transfer pump, designed for pumping diesel, water and light oils out of drums or bunds, and a PTO Air Compressor for the inflating of tractor tyres.
Whilst the diesel refuelling market is always prominent at these shows, this year, AdBlue™ is going to have a much greater presence. To meet Euro standards regarding vehicle emissions, agricultural machinery manufacturers including New Holland, Fendt and Massey Ferguson have implemented the SCR technology in their equipment that utilises AdBlue™. Consequently, fuel distributors and tank manufacturers who have always attended these agricultural exhibitions are now showcasing AdBlue™ and AdBlue™ tanks as well as their core fuel products.
