How Low Can You Go?

There’s a lot of talk about lowering the boom to reduce drift and make twin fan nozzles more effective. But how low can we actually go with a boom before striping becomes a problem? We’ve done some calculating and have come up with answers. First, a few guidelines. Tapered flat fan nozzles require overlap to […]

Boom Heights at Fan Angles Worksheet

Use this spreadsheet to calculate the minimum boom heights needed for various applications. Some caution: The values are theoretical and assume the fan angles are accurate. Some nozzles don’t produce the advertised fan angle. Enter your actual angle in the spreadsheet The theory assumes that the droplets at the edge of the fan always move […]

Sprayer Turn Compensation

Turn compensation is a feature in pulse width modulation (PWM) sprayers in which nozzle output matches the boom’s speed during a turn. When turning, the inside and outside of a boom travel at different speeds, resulting in over-dosing on the inside and under-dosing on the outside. Read about PWM systems here, here, and here. The […]
