Us this handy visual guide to identify a mystery nozzle you may find on a field sprayer. We’ve included the most common low-drift nozzles found on North American, European, and Australian sprayers. The list does not contain any conventional flat fan nozzles.

It’s in alphabetical order by manufacturer.

First, a reminder of the ISO colour coding of nozzles by nominal flow rate, and their approximate output at normal speeds and nozzle spacings.

ISO Flow rate colour coding and benchmark application volumes for US and metric units

Also recall that most nozzles have markings that identify their fan angle (usually 30, 40, 65, 80, 90, 110, 120, 130, or 150 degrees, with 80 and 110 being most common) or flow rate (in US gpm, as shown in figure above).
