I'm thinking about it.
It has to be an air induction Nozzle to get 90% drift reduction for stripe . Ceramic last longer and powders are less inclined to stick to ceramic .
What is the difference between these two nozzles .???
A handy calculator and available as an APP
As far as I remember the IDK"N" is a very similar nozzle that produces a very slightly coarser droplet size that allowed them meet the 90% drift reduction regs in 03 (blue) and 04 (red).
It is a while since I looked into it.
Thanks to @gone for a very useful morning out. Really good to get eyeball on a lot of different nozzles and their performance.
Hey. Which of the nozzles will be better for fungicide and insecticide spraying in OSR and wheat? Guardian Air Twin or TeeJet TTJ60?
Bought a used sprayer in January that's fitted with Hypro Guardian Air 4's. AFAIK 3 bar is the optimum pressure but how low can the pressure be reduced without significantly affecting performance? Would like to get as close as possible to 160 l/ha at 8kph.
It depends on target, no issue with low pressure if not targeting small weeds or grasses.
But GAs work better at a higher speed and from 2bars up the coverage will be better.
10km at 2 bars will be close to what you want and give better performance.
Thanks. We were used to doing 160 l/ha at 5 bar and 8km with yellow Nozal AFX jets on the last sprayer so 2 bar seems incredibly low. I'm a little wary of letting the boss man away at the breakneck speeds of 10 kph so we might have to settle for reduced acres/tank until I get a set of 2.5s or 3's.
