TurboDrop® Flat Fan and TurboDrop® Asymmetric TwinFan High Pressure Nozzles
The high pressure TurboDrop® nozzle is available in single fan or asymmetric twinfan versions. Both nozzles utilize a ceramic metering orifice and ceramic pattern orifices to provide the longest wear life for large farms or professional applicators. The high pressure TurboDrop® nozzles provide the same combination of drift control and coverage that the medium pressure TurboDrop® nozzles deliver, but at a higher pressure range.
The single fan TDCFFC nozzle may be used to provide maximum canopy penetration. The asymmetric twinfan (TDAT) splits the flow into equal 110° patterns, one directed 10° forward and the other 50° rearward. In most sizes of the TDAT, the droplet size remains Coarse up to about 100 psi. The next size smaller pattern orifice, with the same Venturi, may be used to provide a Medium droplet spectrum.
With single flat fan nozzles, the force from the travel speed of the sprayer deflects the downward oriented droplets forward in the driving direction. Coverage on the backside of the plant is minimized. The 50° rearward spray of the TDAT is designed to overcome this effect and improve backside coverage. The 10° forward spray will provide a combination of penetration and front side coverage. To maximize coverage, TDAT nozzles may be alternated on the boom to provide four angles of spray orientation into the canopy, effectively spraying the target four times in one pass.
