Factors to Consider when Choosing a Nozzle Spray
In the field is very to lack a sprayer these days. For a farmer to get the best nozzle sprayers for his garden, then he or she must possess the skills of choosing the best spray tips. When it comes to the spraying of pesticide then this is very important. There exists a wide variety of spray tips that can be used for agricultural purposes. Flood, even-spray, solid cone, raindrop, hollow cones, and many others are the examples of the spray tips. For the farmers who are responsible for taking care of their chemical applications, the flat spray tips and even-spray tips work best for them. The is also some area where the hollow cones and the solid cones can be used.
To be able to achieve your desires regardless of the selection of the spray nozzle you can choose a basic nozzle and spray technique. To get a uniform distribution then it is advisable to overlap the outer edges of the spray patterns. You can correct the spacing of the nozzle and the boom height above the surface being sprayed to achieve the desired pattern of the spraying. Nozzles designs also affect the amount of the overlap. Thirty percent to a hundred percent is the range of recommendation by the manufacturers. The overlap will automatically change from one design to the other. To get the right tips it is very necessary to ask for a recommendation from the manufactures. Their information will help you in finding the best spray overlap and the best spray height.
To manage the spray drift there is need to consider droplets of two sprays. If the bigger droplets will have a diameter that is twice bigger than the small one, the bigger droplet will be eight times bigger in weight than the small droplet. The smaller drop will fall slowly in the air than the bigger one. The probability of the wind carrying the smaller droplet is greater than that of the bigger droplet.
The shape of the spray that is produced by the nozzle give it the name the flat fan nozzle. The spray pattern shape forms a “V” shape. Covering fully the area being sprayed was the reason why this spray was designed. Narrow and elliptical is the pattern of the spray. There are available factors to consider when it comes to the choosing of the spray tip. These factors include the material used to make the tip, the orifice size and the angle of the spray. With time the tips of the spray will need to be replaced due to the wearing out. The factors dictating the lifespan of the spray tip are the abrasiveness and the corrosiveness of the solution that is being sprayed.
