AGRICULTURAL SPRAYS

Abstract

Sprays for plant protection are in charge of producting drops in concordance with diseases, crops and active ingredients included in the mixture. Because of the situation diversity it is needed a broad spectrum of droplets sizing. In addition, on boom sprayers, the nozzles have to ensure a uniform distribution on the canopy.
For these reasons, most of boom sprayers are equipped with flat fan nozzles. But some other types can be used : hollow cone nozzles, flood jet, pneumatic nozzles, or centrifugal nozzles with vertical or horizontal disc.
