Summarizing the pressure/spray relationship

Pressure is integral to nozzle performance. Reducing hydraulic pressure reduces nozzle flow rate, increases median droplet size, and typically reduces spray fan angle. Increasing pressure increases nozzle flow rate, reduces median droplet size and typically increases spray fan angle. You can watch this Exploding Sprayer ...Read More

The Effect of Pressure Drop on Coverage

In 2015, Tom and Jason ran demonstrations at Ontario’s¬†Southwest Agriculture Crop Diagnostic Days. The 20 minute sessions were designed to explain: The phenomenon of pressure drop, how to measure it, how to correct for it, and how low pressure affects¬†coverage. Although manufacturers of air ...Read More
