Salford Group Partners With Case IH To Launch New Air Boom Applicator


Salford Group, Inc. is pleased to announce they are partnering with Case IH to supply Salford’s industry-leading air boom application technology for the Case IH Titan Floaters chassis.

Salford’s innovative 350 cubic foot hopper design and 72-foot air boom will be known as the Case IH FA 1030 and will be available on the Case IH Titan 4540, with plans to make the FA 1030 available for 3540 Titan floater models in July 2021.

Salford’s Valmar division has over 40 years’ experience in the design and manufacturing of Venturi pneumatic applicators. The Venturi granular applicator, pioneered by Valmar, has become the crop production industry’s standard for air boom application because the design is a simple to operate, easy to maintain, very accurate and reliable.

“The window to perform critical operations in crop production seems to be getting shorter all the time, and producers are trying to cover the same acres with less people,” said Brad Baker, VP Sales and Marketing for Salford Group. “That crunch means it’s more crucial than ever for commercial applicators and broadacre crop producers whose equipment is fast, accurate and reliable.”

Over the years since Valmar first released Venturi applicators, the company continued to enhance technology, such as more uniform distribution, even in varying conditions like hillside application and left / right section control for more targeted product applications. Recently, Salford’s innovation- focused engineering team has helped make the applicators larger, both in capacity and application width, achieving high ground speeds while increasing application rates, and introducing flexible, multiproduct hopper designs that are capable of applying multiple products, each a varying rates.

“Salford is excited to continue advancing air boom application technology for the crop production industry,” says Baker. “And we’re proud that our advances in product technology and continuous pursuit of quality have allowed us to partner with an industry leader like Case IH.”
