Campey keep EU imports on-time

Campey keep EU imports on-time: Despite the widely reported disruption at ports due to Brexit, Campey Turf Care Systems has maintained their EU import times.

As recently as 26th January machines were collected from Imants in The Netherlands one day and delivered to Campey headquarters the next. This has primarily been due to the work behind the scenes at Campey, with a significant emphasis on maintaining delivery times as part of the high level of customer service expected from the company and customers.

Suffering no disruption to date has been down to preparing for the changes as well as keeping on top of COVID-19 protocols, as Campey Director, Lee Morgado, explains.

“We knew with Brexit there would be rule changes and that could have an impact on imports at customs, so we’ve put a lot of work into making sure there are no delays.

“Obviously the circumstances away from Brexit with the pandemic have put a greater strain on the GB-EU border, but that is where we’ve really seen the preparation pay off because we haven’t suffered any unnecessary delays and have been able to stick to our delivery schedules.

“A majority of it has been paperwork based and being proactive as situations change. Doing this means we are now in a place where our customers don’t see a difference. For them, when they order an Imants machine or Air2G2, they still get it when they expect to, which was always our main priority.”

Campey has worked hard throughout the pandemic to ensure that customers at all levels of sport can continue maintaining their turf, whether this is through new Coronavirus protocols or guaranteed delivery times.

Customers who have any queries regarding imports or delivery times are encouraged to contact Campey directly by phone, email or using the contact form an www.campeyturfcare.com.

Hatz Engine Range Engineered For EU Stage V

Hatz Engine Range Engineered For EU Stage V: “Our drive to bring all our engines up to EU Stage V compliance presented us with a series of challenges, but with the development of current technology alongside new engineering advancements made our journey to a successful conclusion a smooth operation” – Joe Wilmer Managing Director Hatz GB Limited.

EU Stage V is set to be implemented throughout the EU including the UK from the start of 2019. This new regulation brings forward a demand to reduce Particulate Matter (PM) alongside extended control of both PM and Nitrogen Oxides (NOx.) emissions.

Hatz Engine Range Engineered For EU Stage V

The European commission states; ‘…engines contribute significantly to air pollution and are accountable for roughly 15% of the NOx and 5% of the PM emissions in the EU…several technical reviews have concluded that the legislation in its current form has shortcomings …….. therefore, and in line with the developments in the road sector, the introduction of new emission stage (Stage V), which would target particle number limits in addition to particle mass limits appeared appropriate’.

Hatz GB can confirm that their range of engines will comply with these regulations. This includes their popular line of single, twin, three and four cylinder engines. All Hatz engines, up to 19 kilowatts, will meet the requirements of EU Stage V without any additional exhaust emission treatment required.

Hatz are now looking further into the future anticipating that deeper cuts in emissions will almost certainly be high on the agenda of both the UK and EU regulatory bodies. With this in mind Hatz engineers are advancing their H series of engines in a push to bring down PM and NOx emissions even further.

In the development of the H-series, Hatz has already placed the emphasis on future stricter exhaust regulations. The specifications for the H-engines include: low fuel and oil consumption, reduced friction losses and reducing the overall physical size of the engine. In addition, the company has introduced an ‘Intelligent Hatz Advanced Combustion Strategy’ (iHACS), which results in fewer particulates being emitted. Engines in the H-series are designed to be extremely compact and offer maximum flexibility for installation into an end product. The H series are available as an Open Power Unit (OPU) and noise reduction, by around 60%, are achieved with their optional New Silent Pack set.

OEM’s, machinery manufacturers and all users of diesel powered machinery can view many examples of the Hatz EU Stage V compliant engines at the forthcoming Executive Hire Show, held at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena on 6th and 7th February 2019 (www. executivehireshow.co.uk).

Hatz diesel engines have been around since 1910. From their manufacturing base situated at Ruhstorf, Germany, Hatz produce a range of modern diesel engines from 3 to 55 kW. Their UK subsidiary, Hatz GB Limited, has its facilities centrally located in Hinckley, Leicestershire.

Aqua-Aid at BTME

Aqua-Aid EU BV at BTME: Aqua-Aid Europe BV will be returning to BTME in Harrogate for the third time in January to demonstrate the power of Verde-Cal G against black layer and the benefits of WormPower Turf.

Common golf course issues such as compaction and thatch are tackled using machinery, but the causes of these problems can be tackled and prevented using Verde-Cal G and WormPower Turf.

Aqua-Aid EU BV at BTME

Following the REACH pre-registration process after the successful introduction of the AQUA-AID product lines, all individual products have now been full registered with the ECHA to follow the REACH guidelines; this ensures availability of our products after the impending new legislation becomes effective.

Black layer is a common problem that all golf courses can face, and once this layer is established drainage is greatly reduced, with machinery often the go to remedy. Verde-Cal G uses gypsum and thCa™ to remove this layer and provide a healthier root zone with no surface disruption.

The gypsum (calcium sulphate) within Verde-Cal G is combined with the organic complexing agent thCa™. This makes it more readily available for soil or plant use without effecting or raising the pH. In high pH soils this is a great tool to reduce salts and bicarbonates to lower pH levels. Using the product loosens compacted soil, improves aeration and allows water to percolate, which directly combats the causes of black layer within the root zone, and provides more oxygen to the plant roots.

Detailed information on Worm Power Turf will also be available on stand B37. This product increases root mass by enhancing the availability of plant nutrients, and accelerating root initiation, establishment and development. In turn, this increase the water holding capacity of the soil, reducing irrigation frequency and increasing the stress tolerance during harsh conditions.

 All of Aqua-Aid EU’s products are designed to combat and prevent specific root zone and soil issues, from black layer and compaction to hydrating and penetrating the soil using OARS PS (penetrating surfactant) and HS (hydrating surfactant). Ultimately this is done by promoting clean soil profiles, strong roots and healthy plants.
