The Basic Function of a Sprayer:

Distribution & Metering

Apply a dilute amount of herbicide (Rate) in a determined volume of water (GPA) to a known area.

Nozzle Mount Pressure Regulator

$15.00 - $18.00


Injector systems l.jpg

Injector Systems


Tanks l.jpg

Tanks

  • Fiberglass

  • Stainless steel

  • Galvanized steel

  • Aluminum

  • Polyethylene


Agitation l.jpg

Agitation


50 gpm for agitation 12 gpm for boom 62 gpm total pump requirement l.jpg

Agitation

50 GPM for agitation12 GPM for Boom62 GPM total pump requirement

Agitation Requirement5% of tank volume(5 GPM for each 100 gallons)

1000 gallon tank

Pump - 50 GPM just for agitation


Strainers l.jpg

Strainers

  • Tank opening

    • Basket Strainer (16-80 mesh)

  • In-line (40-50 mesh)

  • Nozzle screen (50 - 100 mesh)


Pumps must provide at least l.jpg

PUMPS - must provide at least:

  • Gallons per minute (GPM) required by all nozzles

  • GPM - tank agitation (5 - 6 % of tank volume)


Pump types l.jpg

Pump Types

  • Roller

  • Centrifugal

  • Gear

  • Turbine

  • Diaphragm

  • Piston


Positive displacement l.jpg

Positive Displacement

  • General Purpose

  • Wide range

    • Output

    • Pressures

  • Herbicides

  • Rollers can wear

Roller Pump


Non positive displacement l.jpg

Non-positive Displacement

  • Continuous Flow

  • High RPM’s

  • Low Pressures

  • Durable

  • Easy to Maintain

  • Dry Formulations


Comparison of micron sizes approximate l.jpg

2000 m - #2 Pencil lead

850 m - paper clip

420 m – staple

300 m - toothbrush bristle

150 m - sewing thread

100 m - human hair

Comparison of Micron Sizes(approximate)


What s a good gpa l.jpg

What’s a good GPA?

Very Fine to Fine Droplet = Low Volume (GPA)

Medium to Coarse Droplets

Very Coarse = High Volume

Three functions of a nozzle l.jpg

Three Functions of a Nozzle

  • Metering - GPA

  • Atomization – Liquid to drops

  • Pattern dispersal


Maximizing sprayer performance l.jpg

MAXIMIZING SPRAYER PERFORMANCE

  • Nozzle materials

    • Stainless steel, brass and plastic are the most common.

    • Stainless steel is probably the best choice


Nozzles wear vs cost l.jpg

Nozzles: Wear vs Cost


Volume of pesticide solution applied depends upon l.jpg

VOLUME OF PESTICIDE SOLUTION APPLIED DEPENDS UPON:

  • NOZZLE TIPS - GPM

  • PRESSURE –Consistent, prevent drift

  • SPEED - MPH

  • NOZZLE SPACING - Uniformity


Nozzle types l.jpg

Nozzle Types

Flat fan - regular

Flat fan - extended range

Twin flat fan - good for

dense foliage

Boom buster spray nozzles that work without booms l.jpg

BOOM BUSTERSPRAY NOZZLES THAT WORK WITHOUT BOOMS

  • FEATURES

    • Machined from solid stainless steel. 

    • Replaceable nylon diffusers.


Roadside spray boom l.jpg

Roadside Spray Boom


Boom buster con t l.jpg

Boom Buster (con’t)

  • Extra wide spray pattern.

  • Excellent pattern and distribution.

  • All models spray chemicals and fertilizers.

  • All nozzles have standard pipe threads.


How to change sprayer output l.jpg

HOW TO CHANGE SPRAYER OUTPUT

  • NOZZLES

    • Best for large changes in output


How to change sprayer output37 l.jpg

HOW TO CHANGE SPRAYER OUTPUT

  • Pressure

    • Only feasible within a limited pressure range

    • Pressure must be increased by a factor of 4 in order to double the flow

    • 10 GPA at 20 PSI

    • 20 GPA at 80 PSI


How to change sprayer output38 l.jpg

HOW TO CHANGE SPRAYER OUTPUT

  • SPEED

    • Only feasible within a limited range of speeds


Ground speed l.jpg

Ground Speed

  • Cut speed by ½ =doubles output.

Double ground speed decreases output by ½
