Single and multi-nozzle bodies
The nozzle bodies with integrated diaphragm non-return anti-drip valves fit up into the boom profiles reliably preventing any dripping at the nozzle. Self-adjusting bayonet fixings ensure a tool-less quick nozzle change. The 3-fold or 4-fold nozzle bodies are suited to frequent nozzle changes due to different applications and crops. Nozzle protection tubes, as standard on the outer sections, or, if desired, over the entire boom working width, ensures protection for long injector nozzles and multiple nozzle bodies. Injector nozzles (ID, TTI) have a relatively coarse droplet spectrum and are particularly versatile with regard to their field of application. A pressure range of 2 to 8 bar is possible. If coverage quality is at the foreground of the application, the use of standard or anti-drift fine droplet nozzles, such as XR or AD, is recommended. Special care is required here due to the tendency to drift above 3 bar. A good compromise is provided by the modern ID-K or Airmix compact injector nozzles. These have relatively little drift, but do not have too coarse a droplet spectrum and are operated at 2 to 4 bar. When it comes to special coverage qualities the double flat fan nozzle is an interesting alternative: the AVI Twin from Agrotop also produces droplets that are not too fine. The split spray pattern ensures a more even deposit on the front and back of the plant and makes sense maybe, for example, in ear treatment. For speeds greater than 10 km/h, the TD HiSpeed nozzle with its asymmetrical spraying angle is becoming a new industry trend.
